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!

Most Awesome Shoe Ever!!!

I think these shoes are the best! I wish I could wear them to work. I love how I can feel the ground under my feet but I still feel protected. My feet never tire no matter how far or how much I walk.

Beautiful design and super comfortable

It is beautiful shoe, I would say even better than the photos. They are light, the good quality blue canvas give them a very nice elegant look. It feels almost as barefoot as my cloud sandals. I bought them in clearance and didn't find my size (I have the cloud sandals and daylight hiker in 6) I bought the 5.5 with the hope that they were going to fit me anyway, but it is too small for me 🙁

Upgraded

I originally got the Lena’s in 1/2 size too small for my feet. But since I live within an hour and a half of Xero Shoes headquarters I decided to go in and try the sizes on for surety of having the perfect fit when I left. Long story short, I have skinny rabbit feet when propped up but when they’re bearing weight they splay quite wide in the tarsal and toe region. So I tried on the Hana men’s clearance, which were the same price, and found they fit the most comfortably. And they’ve been my go to shoes since I purchased them several months ago! I adore these shoes. I wear them for work, play, church, school, everything except ice and snow. They don’t stand up well to slick ice would have to be my only negative critique, but that also isn’t something they were designed for. Overall, my Hana men’s is the best. Feel like I’m wearing slippers everywhere when I’m not. Side note, my mum went with me to exchange the shoes and she wound up with the Lena’s I gave up. She likes them a lot too and also wears them for work. They’re cozy.
