Product Description

“The most comfortable, versatile barefoot sandal your feet will ever love.”

We’ve taken our ready-to-wear Venture and added a whisper of comfort with a custom-made 3mm BareFoam™ insert in the forefoot.

This makes the Cloud even lighter and more flexible than the Venture… A women’s size 7 is only 3.8 ounces (ea). The Cloud floats! 

Some people think of the Cloud as their casual Xero Shoe, even though it’s sturdy enough to tackle a 100-mile trail ultramarathon.

Reasons you’ll love the Cloud:

  • Four fun color combinations — Coal Black soles with Charcoal, Mocha Earth soles with Black, Coal Black soles with Mint or Red
  • Vegan-friendly materials — the Cloud is made with foam, plastic and nylon
  • Barefoam™ forefoot insert gives a hint of comfort, without unnecessary padding
  • Patent-pending lacing system gives you a perfect fit in seconds
  • Flatiron pattern on the Barefoam™ gives you extra grip
  • 5.5mm FeelTrue® outsole protects you from unpleasant surfaces without sacrificing ground feel
  • Elegant contour surrounds your foot, but doesn’t add unnecessary support
  • Ready to wear — the lacing is already done for you. Just slide in your foot and go
  • Patent-pending tensioning system — find the perfect fit in seconds, and then you can slide your Xeros on and off in a flash
  • Super soft toe loop — since the huaraches-inspired lacing goes around your entire foot, you don’t feel the toe loop the way you do in a flip flop or other thong sandal
  • Super STRONG toe loop — won’t pull through the sole like flip flops do
  • Heel cup — keeps your heel in place, helps keep out debris, and adds a splash of color
  • Nylon Achilles strap with Silicone grip — holds on securely and comfortably
  • Elevated ankle holes — the lace never touches the ground, and so it won’t abrade
  • Vegan-friendly
  • 5,000 mile sole warranty! Wear out your Clouds in under 5,000 miles and we’ll replace them for a nominal cost (details here)

How to adjust your Cloud for a perfect fit

Follow these simple video instructions to get the “just right” tension.


Any questions? Just call us at 303 447 3100 or send us an email. We’re here to help.

We don’t currently have a way to let you select different laces when you order, but if you’re adventurous, you can buy extra laces and swap them out with the ones that come with your Clouds and Ventures. (It’s actually not that hard to do.)

Tens of thousands of people all around the world of all ages use Xero Shoes for running… and walking, hiking, biking, camping, going to the beach, hitting the gym, doing yoga, even running 100-mile ultra marathons. Our former Customer Happiness Manager, Bill, ran from his house to the bus, from the bus stop to the office, back home, and then around with his dogs… then he does his fun runs on the weekend… that was about 120 miles on his Xero Shoes each week!

Light and easy.

I can’t give you a barefoot running lesson here (for that, see the links on our home page).

But just by wearing them, you’ll find quickly that you don’t want to land hard on your heel as you walk or run in Xero Shoes.

The best advice I can give is: play with your gait and stride, looking for the thing that feels the most comfortable and is the easiest. But, most importantly: TAKE IT EASY at first… remember, Xero Shoes are just like barefoot, only with protection and style. If you’re not used to walking barefoot, that alone could take some time to get used to.

Plus, since you’re not putting as much stress on your skin when you wear huaraches, which means it hurts less, it’s tempting to do too much, too far, too fast at first. I know that no matter what I say you’ll probably overdo it (I did). Besides, how do you know what “too much” is, unless you do too much!?

Well, even though that’s true, I recommend you break into your huaraches SLOWLY. Walk around in them for a while first. Maybe only a half mile or so. When that’s comfortable, extend the time you’re walking and, when you feel ready, try running. If you’re already running a mile a day, try half a mile in these one day and see how you feel. Give yourself a day or two off and then repeat. If that’s not a problem, build up SLOWLY.

I also use the “slap-test.” If my sandals are slapping on the ground when I walk or run, I need to make some kind of change, probably by not reaching my foot out as far, or using better posture, etc.

Frankly, we don’t know. We’ve had people put over 10,000 miles on a pair… and they’re still going!

Like any shoe, how long they last depends on your running style. If you use good barefoot technique and are light and easy, without scraping your foot on the ground, you’ll enjoy them for quite a while.

Besides, considering how inexpensive they are compared to big, padded, running shoes, we expect that you’ll be saving a fortune by using Xero Shoes.

And, more importantly, Xero Shoes come with a 5,000 mile sole warranty!

Okay, that’s not a question, but I’ll talk about it anyway 😉

Most people who say this are thinking of flip-flops. Xero Shoes are very different than flip-flops, and people who don’t like things between their toes are usually fine in Xero Shoes.

What’s the difference?

    • First, because of the heel strap, Xero Shoes stay on your foot comfortably, no matter what you’re doing with them. You don’t need to scrunch your toes to hold them on (like you do with a flip-flop).
    • Second, also because of the heel strap, you don’t need to jam your foot into the toe strap with every step (like a flip-flop)
    • Third… Speaking of the toe strap, it’s a soft, flexible bit of lace, not a hard rubber door stopper (like a you-know-what)
    • And finally, you can adjust the tension of the toe strap, unlike a… Well, you get the idea.

The Venture and Cloud are ready-to-wear barefoot-inspired sandals.
Both products use our exclusive FeelTrue® rubber, the only outsole product made specifically for barefoot style sandals.

The Venture’s sole is 5.5mm thick, compared to either 4mm or 6mm on the DIY kits. The Cloud has 3mm of Barefoam™ in the forefoot for a bit of extra comfort and lighter weight (the Clouds float!)

The Cloud and Venture have a soft toe post, so there’s no knot under your foot.

The Cloud and Venture have a simpler lacing system with a patent-pending adjustment technology that lets you get a perfect fit in just seconds.

The ankle holes on the Cloud and Venture are raised off the ground so the lace can’t abrade.
The heel cup helps keep stuff from getting under your foot (not perfectly, of course), and keeps your heel in place.

If you have a headache because you’re hitting yourself on the head with a hammer, wearing gloves won’t stop the pain.
In other words, it’s not just a question of taking off your shoes and experiencing magical healing powers.
Running barefoot, or in running sandals, gives you a lot of feedback about your running form. In short, if it hurts, you’re probably doing something wrong.

If you are willing to listen to that feedback and use it as an opportunity to change the way you run, to adjust your stride, to find a way to move that doesn’t hurt, then there’s a good chance any problems you had that were caused by bad form sure might clear up.

In other words, barefoot and minimalist running could show you how to let go of the hammer.
Being barefoot, or in huaraches, is an opportunity to find a cure, not a cure in and of itself.
Check out this post to read about people who, instead, thought barefoot running was about putting on gloves.

You can use almost anything for lacing huaraches.

In my testing, though, I found some issues with hemp and leather that I didn’t like:

  • Both leather and hemp tended to stretch, especially when moist
  • Both leather and hemp tighten and stiffen when they dry
  • Both leather and hemp wear out faster than our polyester laces
  • Leather is much more expensive
  • Most leather laces are rectangular, and the edges can dig into your skin
  • Leather, isn’t vegan (for those who care about that)
  • Leather and hemp don’t give you as many fun color choices

The 100% polyester cord we use is strong, light, and doesn’t stretch or tighten, especially when wet.

Also, I prefer the “slip-on” method of tying which works best with a round lace, rather than a flat one (like leather).

Needless to say, you can replace the lace we send you with whatever you like.

We do! We’ve sold Xero Shoes to people in more than 85 countries around the world.
We use the US Postal service to send our shipments. The cost to ship will depend on the weight of the package and the delivery speed you select; several options will be provided at checkout.

All domestic shipments come with tracking. Limited tracking is available for some first class international shipments depending on the country, and full tracking is available with all Priority Express and Express International shipments.

Though almost all of our international orders arrive without incident, we strongly advise you to select Priority Express International or Express International if you live in a country with a less reliable postal service, including (but not limited to) India, Brazil, Mexico, South Africa, and Indonesia. We cannot guarantee delivery of packages shipped using First Class International.

We advise you to know the import regulations of your country and understand that you will be responsible for payment of any duties and fees imposed by your government at the border.

All packages will be marked as merchandise; as a commercial shipper, we are not able to mark a package as a gift (if you’re giving Xero Shoes as a gift, that’s not the same as us sending a gift).

Caring for your Cloud Sandals

Because of the BareFoam™ in the Clouds, these need a bit of extra attention. Do not leave your Clouds in hot cars or exposed to intense or direct sunlight. This could cause the BareFoam™ to deform and is not covered by our warranty.

To clean your Cloud sandals, hand wash with warm water, mild soap and allow them to air dry (away from direct sunlight).

Fantastic Sandals

I wear these sandals all the time! To go out to dinner, to go trail running, and just around the house. They are amazing and my feet have become quite strong and tough. Thanks!

My feet love it!

I love that I can go almost barefoot when I’m out of the house! It takes some getting used to the straps and thin sole, but it’s definitely worth the effort. My feet like to be free of the confines of shoes whenever possible!

Helped My Flat Feet!

I bought these Amuri Cloud Sandals in May 2017 and in May 2022 (to the day!) the rubber loop near the ankles that holds the string finally broke, and there was a hole beginning to show right under my big toe, so it was time to throw them out. I ran in them at the gym, hiked in them in mountain trails, and wore them as everyday sandals. I don't know how many miles that was, but they served me a very good 5 years. I also noticed my severely flat feet started to build a decent arch and my calf muscles were becoming defined! I only notice the arch building up fast when I do A LOT of miles of walking or jogging in them. I have to warn you though, I had to start very VERY lightly because the calf muscles WILL burn at first, but eventually the pain stops and you just start building muscles and building an arch. I had flat feet since childhood and believed the myth that it was genetic,.....until I discovered barefoot running, and barefoot shoes. There IS HOPE for all the flat feet out there, but it comes with some uncomfortable soreness at first. I'm excited to purchase my second pair of Cloud sandals!

Weird heel

I decided that I can not wear these. It is very strange for me to be so uncomfortable in a flip flop, but the heel has a place for your foot to be against, and that’s just not something I enjoy. It’s a bummer, because I find the show comfortable, just can’t get past the heel cup.

Favorite flip flops

These are great. They have just enough protection but not too much so you still get the barefoot experience.

Far better than expected!

I bought these to use for at home workouts. I was skeptical at first, but have been pleasantly surprised. I haven’t tested them for daywear or outside activities though… I’ve only used them at home. But I definitely recommend these sandals! Getting them on clearance was a reason I initially gave them a chance… But I would be willing to buy another pair at full price when mine wear out. If you want more details keep reading 🙂 To give you some background: I usually workout barefoot. I have wide feet and gym shoes are just too restricting (they rub my feet funny and don’t allow my toes and foot to balance comfortably. Plus, it requires socks and that’s just more wash!) But the flooring in my new workout space was really roughing up the soles of my feet. I tried socks once and quickly realized that was not a good option… Wanting to avoid a full-on shoe, I thought these sandals might be a good solution to my problem! They have been a perfect solution! I have loved them! It took me a while to get used to how to get them comfortable. They don’t rub the outsides of my feet or restrict my toes from splaying. Plus, I still get the balance benefits and feel of a barefoot workout. Pros: - easy to get on and adjust - slim and flexible for packing - comfortable to wear and actively move in - no rubbing or discomfort on heels or between toes (unless you tighten them too much) - have great sole grip (so good they are too grippy for some slide moves - so watch out!) Cons: - The straps loosen on their own sometimes - Sometimes the toe end catches on edges of my step or other items as I move and fold under, (because I have very short toes that don’t reach as far toward the toe end) - I have super sweaty feet, so the sweat soaks into the soft bit of material under your foot and starts to smell a little funky. Washing with some soap can help.

Great Construction, Odd Shape

I am happy with the quality of the shoe, but the midfoot to toe width is REALLY wide for a regular size. It feels like I'm wearing flippers as a result and is a bit of a deterrent from using these daily. The upper outer edge just just out and does not fit the profile of my foot.

First time to try xeros

Very comfortable to use. flattering as well although the sole is a bit too wide for my feet. The right heel lip bumps my heel a bit on occasion. Traction of the sole not the greatest but its workable. I always get annoyed having to pull the (bulky bec of clasps) heel strap over my heel to wear these types of sandals, but i guess there is no way around it

Zero shoes

I think they are going to be great on the trail this summer. Can’t wait!
