I love my DIYs

I received a Classic DIY Kit with Vibram Cherry soles for my birthday in late September. I did a tie inspired by ANDE’S BLINGED OUT TYING #1 & the other version….. I would rather be barefoot and do everything I can barefoot only wearing shoes to protect my feet when I’m doing something that requires it or of course going in stores, restaurants, & the club to dance. I first wore them to the grocery store and through the day. It was wonderful to have my feet feel so close to barefoot. I didn’t even take them off to drive or when I was riding as a passenger which is kinda amazing. From the time I can remember I had to put shoes on to get out of the car and go in somewhere. My mom would tell me when we were getting into a town we were traveling to so I could get my shoes on, partners do that now, 🙂 I’ve worn them dancing probably four times and put quite a few miles walking on them in the little over a month that I’ve been using them. I’ve tried two retyings and each has been just a little prettier or better function. They have been just getting better. 🙂 I do caution to give yourself ample room on the sides when cutting and to punch sufficiently in from the sides when you do. If I had done either of them I wouldn’t have torn out the hole in the sole for the ankle tie. It was my miscalculation. I’m about to punch a little further in next to where I did the one that tore out. I hadn’t used shoe goo because I wasn’t committed to the tie. I’m going to do that also. I definitely would buy these again, and I want to see if the newer DIY Kit made with our exclusive FeelTrue® rubber soles next so I can compare. If they are as good as these I’ll have two go to sandals that is as close to barefoot as I’ve felt in any sandal.

I love them!

I'm not usually a fan of barefoot movement, but I love these, especially for casual everyday wear. The only issue I ran into was my first time going long distance I got a giant blister about an inch below my middle toe, I hadn't tightened them correctly. So make sure you adjust them properly and break them in full on short runs before you take them for a long run.

Fixed my gait.

My overall experience has been really good. It came to my attention that I needed to fix my gait. I had never walked properly. Hard heel hitting and hyper-extended knees. It's been a long slow process until I bought this kit. These sandals finished the process. No more plantar fasciitis either. I actually don't want to take them off. Bought Alpines for wet, winter weather. They work great too. The only place they don't work is on the roof. Too slippery. For roof work, I wear Vans.

After Finding the Right Lacing, They Are Perfect!

These sandals were easy to make and are incredibly versatile. I tried the standard lacing option, but it felt too floppy in the front for me. After trying many other lace patterns, I came up with one that I thought would be comfortable based on how the other patterns felt and I made up the perfect one for my feet. I also like knowing that I can always change the pattern in the future. Definitely worth the price and experience of making your own footwear.

Fun project and the kids love them

My kids love their Xero sandals! Since their feet are small I bought one size large kit and extra laces and made both their sandals from the one kit. They enjoyed helping to make their sandals themselves and we were all happy with the result! I'm happy that they have a barefoot sandal and they loved the look and comfort. I wasn't sure how the sandals would work in small sizes (4-year old in size 8 and 6-year old in size 11) but they allowed the kids to run and move freely and the kids could easily put them on themselves.
