Product Description

NOTE — The Lena is on clearance because we’re discontinuing this style and replaced it with the women’s Hana. Click Here to see that product.

Get the fun and freedom of our best-selling sandals with super-cute closed-toe style and casual canvas comfort

For years, people have told us, “We LOVE our sandals, but what do we do when it’s cold out, or when I need something with closed-toes for work, or if I need a bit more protection?”

The Lena is the answer for women.

The Lena, like our other casual canvas shoe, the Hana, is meant to be a casual shoe.  We don’t suggest that you run an ultramarathon in the Lena, but we know when you have our high-performance FeelTrue® sandal base under your foot, some of you will do more in the Lena than just hanging out.

What you’ll love about the Lena
It’s what makes all our Xero Shoes special — we believe in feet! Your feet are supposed to bend, flex, and feel the world. The Lena lets you do that.

  • Natural FIT — the wide toe box lets your toes spread and relax. Plus the “XERO-drop” sole (non-elevated heel and low-to-the-ground) allows for proper posture, balance, and agility.
  • Natural FUNCTION — the flexible Lena lets your feet bend, move, and flex the way that feet are supposed to. Plus, they’re so light, you might forget you have them on. A woman’s size 7 is only 6 ounces each.
  • Natural FEEL — the Lena uses the 5.5mm FeelTrue® rubber sole from our Z-Trek sandal. That means you get protection while still letting you feel the sensations that your feet want. If you need a bit of extra protection, just toss in the optional 2mm insole.
  • Vegan-friendly materials — the Lena has a canvas upper, with a cotton lining and microfiber accents. You can wash it with soap and water.
  • Huarache-inspired design — the heel/instep strap adds a subtle, eye-catching call out, but it’s also functional, holding your heel and cinching up around your instep.
  • Flexible heel — you can step on the heel and wear the Lena as a slide

Is the Lena just for women?
We’ve designed it as a “woman’s” shoe. Compared to the Hana, the shape is a bit narrower and accommodates a slightly higher instep. The pattern offers a bit more adjustment, too. The canvas isn’t as “outdoorsy” as the one in the Hana. That said, men with a narrow foot might still like the Lena. And women with wider feet may want to try the Hana.

Though the Lena is designed as a casual shoe, it’s certainly capable of much more than just hanging out.

We’ve had people do all kinds of outrageous activities in them so far, but it’s up to your best judgment what you believe they are capable of handling.

So, use your common sense and have fun!

You can wash them with a mild soap and water mixture. The canvas is quite durable, and should come clean easily with a little scrubbing.

DO NOT place your Lena in the dryer when you are finished cleaning, let them air dry.

While we designed the Lena as a “women’s shoe” — slightly narrower than the Hana, slightly higher instep, slightly different pattern — if you’re a man with a narrower foot, the Lena might be just right for you.

Shoe sizing, especially online, is not a perfect process. That’s why we have a free exchange policy.
We have sizing instructions at the bottom of the product description for the Lena.

The Lena fits “true-to-size” or a TINY bit small. So you’ll probably be okay selecting your “usual” shoe size. If you think you’re “between sizes,” go up a 1/2 size.

Also, the Lena is wider than conventional shoes. Some people have experienced stretching in the canvas upper to slightly wider.
Keep in mind, though, that because the foot is three-dimensional, any two-dimensional measuring tool, such as a ruler or Brannock device®, can only approximate your true shoe size. Manufacturers model their shoes on different foot shapes, which is why you might be an 8 in one brand and a 9 in another.

Sizing for a shoe is different than a sandal, so if you own one of our sandals, that doesn’t mean you’ll pick the same size in the Lena.

If your foot is bigger than the Lena, check out the Hana instead.

The canvas upper of the Lena can stretch a little bit. Most people find this more comfortable as it happens. You should be able to adjust the lacing to feel snug around your midfoot and let your toes be free.

No, the Lena is a canvas shoe, and will absorb any water it encounters. It is a light canvas, though, and should dry pretty fast after you take them off. Also, you can treat the Lena with an aftermarket waterproofing spray… but that will make them a bit less flexible.

Close to the earth

I love these shoes. They look stylish enough to wear for casual work, but I can also hike in them. They allow me to feel everything under my feet with a little protection. Good stuff!

Solid Shoes

I love these shoes. They're a little big for me, but I wore them all over Costa Rica and found that it actually hasn't been a problem. They look just a little goofy, as they are aggressively barefoot shaped, but I'm still getting compliments on them. They feel great, look good, and hold up in all kinds of terrains.

Relief

The Lena shoe is great, but more importantly, the concept of Xero shoes are amazing. They literally changed my feet. Before getting these, I suffered from severe back pain that ran through my right leg (The type that made me consider a wheelchair). After only 5 wears, my toes have spread out and the pain is much more tolerable. I can finally walk and restrengthen my whole body thanks to Xero shoes!

Mistake

Very unflattering. Cheap and not comfortable fabric

Hi Maizy, Thank you for contacting us. We are sorry to hear that the Lena did not work out for you. The upper is made from 100% cotton canvas and will become softer with wear. If you would like to send your shoes back for an exchange/return, then you can find our full instructions here: xeroshoes.com/return-policy Hopefully that helps!

Love them!

I purchased two pairs of the Lena shoe, and they are really great! I find myself wanting to wear them constantly. They're very comfortable and cute. Definitely order a half size up. To give the canvas a little extra oomphf, I sprayed with scotchguard. Perhaps using a beeswax would work too.

Bought two

I wore out a pair of the blue Lena and ordered two pair on clearance. I like the wide toe and thin sole. I preferred the blue, as the white is beginning to show some stains, but are holding up well otherwise. I've worn out the inserts in my first pair, and would love to be able to get replacements since the rest of the shoe is still in good shape.

Healthy and Comfortable

Bought for a woman with some bursa on her feet, which it doesn't rub. Gives her toes room. She loves them!

Love them!

I am quite impressed with these shoes! My initial reaction was, "uh-oh, I ordered the wrong size". But that hasn't proven to be the case. I typically wear 9s because 8 1/2 never seems big enough, but perhaps it's that they just aren't wide enough. I ordered 9s in the Lena, and probably could also have worn the 8 1/2. The 9s are quite roomy, but my feet don't slip around inside the shoe, even when lightly tied. I was also worried that the back of the shoe was going to rub the back of my ankle wrong, since that's how it initially fit. But after putting on a pair of socks and not tying the laces so tight, I haven't had any issues. These are by far the comfiest shoes I own, and I wear them for just about everything except working out or in snow. I wish that the Lena was available in my size in other colors! The only "complaint" I have is about the shoe strings, they don't tend to stay tied, and the strange shoe string holder? Is that what it is? where you tie the shoes. But that's really not a complaint and more like an "I'm figuring this out" type deal. In any case, I plan on getting some sandals next, since I am so happy with these shoes. I wish my barefoot work out shoes were as comfortable as these, too!

Comfy casual shoes

Great pair of minimalist shoes! A few years ago someone suggested I try getting out of my shoes instead of adding more ‘support’ in the form of compression socks, expensive inserts, high end shoes to help my foot and leg pain. And it worked!!! Ever since I try to be barefoot as possible and these shoes make it feel as if I am still barefoot. Thanks you.

I'm converted

These shoes are the best pair of shoes I've bought in a long time. They're very comfortable and although I was worried about how they'd look, they're actually quite cute. The style of the toe is wonderful, the way it tapers down the toes instead of just rounding out. It's the future of shoes, I don't know why shoes aren't already made this way. I'm so glad I found these.
