Product Description

Imagine a sport sandal with traction to take you wherever you want, with an “invisible” feeling like no other. That’s the Veracruz.

Our Chief Product Officer, Dennis Driscoll, literally dreamed the Veracruz into existence — he had to wake himself up to sketch this completely unique (and, now, patented) minimalist sport sandal webbing pattern.

Like our Jessie, the Veracruz has a comfortable, slightly stretchy, woven toe loop. And like our Z-Trail sandal, you’ll find a 3-layer FeelLite™ sole with:

  • FeelTrue® rubber inserts for grip – including a new, more rugged tread under the ball of your foot
  • A TrailFoam™ middle layer to “even out the bumps”
  • The BareFoam™ footbed with just enough cushion for comfort and performance
  • Of course, the sole is backed with our 5,000 mile sole warranty

It’s the upper webbing pattern that’s so special — the strap that starts at the outside of your foot and loops around to become the heel strap, plus the separate instep strap. Both are adjustable to get the right fit.

There’s something magical about the strapping system combined with the toe loop and the light weight (just 4.8 ounces for a men’s 9) that makes the Veracruz feel like there’s nothing on your foot. But the grippy outsole lets you know it’s ready for adventure.

NOTE: Since there’s nothing else like the Veracruz in the world, we want to hear your thoughts and feedback about it. After you get your Veracruz, email or call us with any questions.

With this new webbing system, you may wonder how to get in and out of the Veracruz. Here’s your answer:

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.

International delivery can take anywhere from 3 days to 8 weeks depending on how long your order spends in customs at the border.

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 Veracruz Sandals

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

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

Love and freedom

Hail! To whom it may concern, these are my favorite casual sandal. I can even use them as an office sandal assuming my office allows me on say casual Fridays. They aren't amazing for running, and hiking is great except if there is a long steep incline. Overall great sandal for river or casual or just average daily use.

I really love these shoes.

I really love these shoes. I don't actually run. I'm too old and broken to run. But I lift weights and walk. I wear these sandals for walking, and wear a pair of barefoot running shoes for weight lifting. Having a small heel is important to keep your balance back on your heels, and running shoes are notoriously bad for that. When my current barefoot shoes wear out, which will be shortly, I will replace them with some kind of Xero shoe, as I think they are the best thing going for weight lifting.

Bummer

Sadly I am not very happy with these as shortly after receiving them the toe loop stretched out making them less than comfortable to wear. I think the loop fabric could use some retooling. Sadly I purchased two pair of these excited about the design. They are now retired to the corner of my closet.

accentuates how out of shape you are

In evaluating the idea of adding a review to the potentially already thousands of reviews, I came to the conclusion that my two cents would have little to no value. That anything I could have experienced or wanted to share would have already been said multiple times by other users. But, after looking through the reviews and seeing how short they were and how most of the reviewers seemed to be much younger than me and in excellent shape, and how their grammar and punctuation leaved so much to be desired, it occurred to me that adding my own comments might not be a complete waste of time. I'm 48 years old. I'm not elderly, but I don't have the energy and stamina I used to, and that isn't saying much. I bought these with no intentions of ever running in them. I walked around the house in them and in my apt. building and they felt fine. But, when I started to walk a little further around my neighborhood, outside, I realized how much work a traditional shoe did for me. That they didn't give me the feedback I need to really understand how being overweight and out of shape really impacts my life. These shoes give a more honest appraisal of the weaknesses in our physiques. They don't hold anything back. A short walk outside my complex, for 20 minutes, and my legs were sore for another day. My extra weight really hits home in how slow I am and how each step seems to take longer and feel like I'm maneuvering every ounce on me. Wearing them feels like a form of exercise, in itself. A membership in a gym, all there for me to use at any time, without paying for expensive or bulky machines that clog up my apartment. We've become so sedentary in this country, me included. Maybe, not the majority of Xero customers, but the majority of Americans. Maybe, the value of these shoes will be lost on so many, who are already in perfect shape and are ready to model underwear.

Not made for running hills

Just to keep them on my feet while running had to put small rubber bands on the toe loops. Even that don’t work if you’re running up hills. I do like the feel when running flat or down hill trails.

Einfach nur SUPER!

Ich habe mir die Schuhe bestellt, da ich ausschließlich Barfußschuhe trage und dies die ersten Sandalen sind, die ich schön finde. Bis jetzt habe ich meine Sandalen immer selber genäht, allerdings konnte die dünne Sohle beim Wandern oder auf Schotterwegen nicht lange mithalten... Ich habe Größe 37 in Sommerschuhen und 38 kaufe ich für den Winter. Die Xero Sandalen habe ich in 36,5 bestellt. Ich hatte Angst das sie zu klein sind, aber sie passen perfekt, auch die Lasche für den großen Zeh!!! Lieferzeit war mit 2 Wochen auch vollkommen ok!

Best Sandals ever

I love the sandals and wear them mainly for hiking and running. The grip is awesome and it feels like not wearing any shoes at all.

lightweight yet ample support!

I am delighted with these. I wear a women's 7.5 and purchased Men's 6 and it fits perfectly. I love the neutral color, it goes with everything. I also appreciate the lightweight coupled with the support for walking.

Free your feet!

I absolutely love my Xero shoes Veracruz! Hiking, biking, running errands, working around the house. These sandals will set you and your feet free. The closest thing to bare foot. Thanks again for making great shoes.
