Product Description

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.

Check out these reviews from Lena wearers

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!

My favorite shoe

I was in a car accident several years ago, which wreaked havoc on my posture and caused neck and back pain that have stuck with me ever since. Little did I know my shoes were contributing to my posture problem until I ran across an ad for Xero shoes! The ad piqued my interest as I had never heard the term "minimalist shoe" before. I started reading the Xero blog, which had lots of good information, and proceeded to do more research from there. Through my research, I learned that my posture issues were more widespread than I had realized. My shoes were causing me to make modifications to my alignment in order to remain upright, and my post-accident back and neck were more sensitive to these adjustments, which was contributing to my pain level. It has now been about a month since I switched to Xero shoes, and I have not looked back. My posture is improving and my pain is less. I have been able to start jogging (wearing my Xero Lena shoes, of course) and am feeling better than I have since the accident.

Lena shoes

Hello, my husband and son wear Xero Daylite Hikers and really love them. I wanted something a little different so I tried the Lena in blue. I love the light-weight feel and the comfort. I liked them so much that I bought a second pair in black less than a week later. I like them, too. I do wish that the laces didn’t show, especially on the black pair, but I haven’t been able to figure out if that is possible. Looking forward to purchasing the Prio when it warms up a little! Thank you, Samantha

Comfortable

I wasn't sure how comfortable it would be to wear wide flat shoes, as I have narrow feet with high arches. These are great! They fit well.

Comfortable shoes, annoying laces

The shoes are very comfortable and I really like the wide toe box. My toes are able to spread and aren’t being squished. I’m finding I really like the minimalist type shoe. The one thing that drives me crazy is the laces. They are the round type so come untied all the time which is very annoying. It would be great if they updated them.

Great shoes!

I just bought my third pair of Lena shoes. They have been my everyday shoe in the spring and fall. I took out the laces and replaced them with lock laces(elastic no tie shoe laces). This allowed for them to be taken on and off very easily. They are very cute and comfortable!

Lightweight and super comfortable

These are the shoes I reach for when I need to have my feet covered but want them to breathe. Love them anywhere, have them in 2 colors. My big footed 8yr old boy is wearing the smallest women's sizes and calls them his "fast shoes". He wears them for sports. Thanks Xero!

Quality and Sizing Review

I just purchased the Lena womens shoe in a size 6, hoping it would fit after reading some reviews about it being small. I debated getting a 6.5 as my normal size is 6 and I wanted room to wear thin sports socks in them in the winter. I am super glad I went for the size 6, these shoes couldn't have a nicer fit. The design allows for the shoe to open right up and feel great with my sports sock on, and when I tighten the elastics and lace them at the highest setting, they feel amazing on my bare feet. I have been looking for a shoe to wear around my house, as I find my productivity increases with a pair of lace up shoes. I just couldn't bear to put on my old Rebok runners, especially after learning how terrible any heel is for the body, but especially those of us trying to heal from Diastasis Recti. NO forward tilting in these, and a nice cue for my brain to go into work mode while at home. Will be recommending these!
