How to Make Your Own Xero Sandals


To make your own sandals, you’ll measure your foot to get the perfect size outsole, you’ll punch the toe hole with our included hollow punch. If you need to, you can trim the sole with a pair of kitchen scissors. Then use one of our simple lacing styles that we’ll show you.Or, if you like, you can order a custom-made pair of Xero Shoes, send us a tracing of your foot and we’ll do all the work.

Deciding between 4mm Connect and 6mm Contact? The 4mm Connect outsoles give you the closest-to-barefoot feeling. The 6mm Contact still has great ground-feel, but with a bit more protection and, since it’s a bit stiffer, a slightly “smoother” ride. Check out this video for more about Connect vs. Contact.

Choose between 4mm Connect & 6mm Contact


The important question is really just:
How much barefoot feel do you want?
The 4mm Connect is the closest thing you’ll get to barefoot, but with a layer of protection. The 6mm Contact still has great ground-feel, but “smooths out the ride” a bit more. Some people prefer the 4mm on trails, because it lets them really grip the rocks and roots… others like the 6mm in that situation because it provides more protection. Similarly, some people like the 4mm on roads because it’s really like being barefoot… and others like the 6mm because it’s a bit stiffer and, therefore, makes even a smooth surface feel a bit smoother.

Get the right fit: Xero Shoes are not sold by shoe size, since shoe size is notoriously inaccurate (you probably have shoes in your closet that are different sizes, but all fit you!). Instead we ask you to measure your foot to get the correct size. Watch this video to see how.

Get the correct size
This video shows you how to measure your foot:

Since many of us wear shoes that are the wrong size, you select your Xero Shoes kit based on the actual length of your foot.
The best way measure your foot length is this: Place a piece of paper (newspaper if you have big feet) against a wall, stand on the paper with your heel lightly touching the wall, make a mark in line with the front of your foot (your first or second toe), and then measure the distance from the edge of the paper to that mark. Do not simply step on a ruler to measure since the angle that you’ll be looking at rarely gives an accurate measurement.NOTE: The actual sole you’ll get is 1/2″ (13mm) bigger than the measurement. If you order, say, the “Up to 10 inch”, the sole you’ll receive is 10.5″ long. But, DO NOT order a size smaller than your foot measurement! If your foot is, say, 10 1/4″ order the size for “feet up to 10 1/2 inches”, otherwise you’ll end up with the wrong size.

Our FeelTrue® DIY Xero Shoes kits come with

  • 1 Pair of FeelTrue® rubber outsoles in your choice of thickness, color and size
  • 2 6′ polyester laces in your choice of fun colors
  • NEW – 4mm hollow punch for the lacing holes — FREE!

Love them!!!

Already so comfortable and I normally HATE having anything between my toes. Had to trim a fair bit off but I do have really narrow feet. Easy to do and sand off to neaten up. Got the toe loop for them, really like the look of them with it 🙂 Thank you!! 😀

A Really Awesome DIY Kit!

As I started to read about minimalism and evaluate what's going on with my feet and running, I discovered xero shoes. At first it was very hard for me to believe that these flip flop looking things could be healthy for me and my running. Well, I took a leap of faith and ordered a pair. 1. The instructional videos on how to punch the holes and tie the knots were very helpful. 2. the Kit came with a hole punch and cord. 3. I cut the sole , punched one hole and tied my straps up I am still getting used to these, but I love em! I look forward to the day when I can comfortably complete a marathon on xero sandals! Bang for the buck, you cannot beat this kit!

Diy feeltrue

LOVE them!!! These are my go to lite hike/creek sandal, Uber comfortable and ultra secure. I have a pair of clouds which are my everyday shoe, love them as well. Get to the creek, the switch between the clouds and the feeltrues is always quick and seamless. Awesome sandals, both styles, couldn't recommend them higher.

I love these sandals! They are perfect. I can lace them however I want; they are so comfortable to wear; and my feet are free to move in them. They are the only sandals I will buy now! Thank you!

I loved them for the brief time I had them

For the week that I had them they were great, had them in an outside pocket in a day pack and slipped in a stream and didn’t notice they came out when I fell. I will replace eventually.

Fun Intruments Of Adventures

Great quality and surpassed my expectations. I've been running Colorado trails with them since I got them. The feeling is quite amazing. Unlike anything I've come across in the past. Fantastic minimalistic footwear for the city, the park, the trails.
