Product Description

NOTE: This is a DISCOUNTED Price. See below for details

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 heelstrap, 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: The Veracruz is an “experimental” product. Since there’s nothing else like it in the world, we’re still perfecting it. Because of that, we’ve reduced the price from the list price of $70. We want to hear your thoughts and feedback about the Veracruz before we share it with the rest of the world. Email or call us with any questions.

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).

Xeroshoes...love these sandals!

I purchased my first pair of Xeroshoes one month ago on Amazon and now I own 3 pair (Genesis, Z-Trek, and Veracruz). I ran 5 miles last night in the Z-Trek sandals and love the feeling. These sandals are amazing and worth every penny. Please design more sandals so I can purchase more.

Third time is a charm

This is my third pair of Xero sandals. These are the best. Best fit. Most comfortable and easy to wear. I highly recommend these sandals and suggest you get in early on the introductory price. I may even buy a second pair.

A great sandal for women too!

I love these! They're stylish and comfortable! I am new to Xero shoes, and these were a great first pair choice. I'm looking forward to trying other styles.

Looks beautiful, good for casual wear, not great for uneven surfaces

The sandal looks beautiful. The toe loop and the geometry of the straps give a very fashion-forward and futuristic look to the design of the sandal. However, performance-wise, the asymmetric design of the straps shows a few holes. For casual wear on flat surfaces, no problem. However on uneven surfaces where your foot can experience rotation, with the sole planted, I can wiggle my heel side to side more than I would like no matter how tight the straps are. Due to the asymmetric design of the supporting straps, I can always rotate my heel more in one direction vs. the other (typically outward heel rotation). Would love more toe loop designs in the future, but need something more symmetric in the supporting straps.

Didn't work for me

First off, I have narrow feet, which might be the primary issue with these shoes for me. I really wanted these to work, since I have been wearing an old pair of minimalist TEVAs (the only pair of truly minimalist ones they have made that they no longer produce) for quite some time that are in dire need of replacement. The issues I faced with this pair of Xero sandals are: 1. The toe strap on the left shoe was larger than the toe strap on the right shoe, which allowed the forefoot to slide back and forth too easily. Even the toe strap on the right didn't really lock down the toe, either...the material allowed for a bit too much movement side-to-side. 2. The strap running across the side of the foot felt like it was too far forward and, when tightened, pushed my foot to the inside. 3. The heel strap, no matter how tight I made it, never really seemed to lock down my foot. My heel tended to slide off the shoe regardless of tightness of the straps. 4. The treads on the heel of the shoe caused my foot to turn outward (tip off the edge of the shoe), probably due to the fact that I couldn't lock down my foot with the straps. Recommendations: 1. Perhaps have an adjustable toe strap that you can really lock down. 2. Maybe use wider straps to help lock down the foot. 3. Have a *slightly* softer footbed in the sandal, which might also help lock the foot in place. Perhaps I will try the Z-trails...

Hi Kevin, We appreciate your review of the VeraCruz! The different sized toe loops sound like it may be a manufacturing issue. Unfortunately, no manufacturing process is flawless, and although rare, manufacturing issues can sometimes occur. Feel free to send along some photos to our Customer Happiness Team at support@xeroshoes.com. They would be happy to take a look and help assist you further! The Xero Shoes Team

Veracurz - VeraNice!

So far I absolutely love them. Even did some running in them within an hour of putting them on my feet. The toe loop is going to make hiking and wearing them around rivers so much better. keeps the foot right on top of the sole. The only complaints I have right now is that I wish the straps were the same width as the Z-trails. Gives velcro a better chance to hold and you can put the velcro just a hair inside the strap so that you don't have it rubbing on your foot. I also would prefer an adjustment for the cross strap like on the Z-trail and velcro back strap. This may be a bit of bias being as used to my Z-trails as I am. In Finale.. AMAZING product! looking forward to some more color options. Taking these to burning man... will get true test there.

A bit too wide

They were incredibly comfortable, and wish I could have kept them. Unfortunately, I typically have to order the women’s shoes as it slightly less wide. As soon as these come out for women, I will absolutely order a pair. Thank you xero!!

I love those

They are super stable and I love the fact that I don't get any Rocks under Neath. Took them for a run yesterday n after I was able to get the right fit they are wonderful. So I went a 60 degrees up hill and although I feel that the sandals will slip off the big toe they don't. Only thing I would say if there was a way to titen or listen the toe strap that would be perfect.

These feel really solid

I find them even better than my Z-Trails, which I like, but maybe these are just newer so I'm feeling more support. The way it attaches to the feet feels very solid too, so I'm excited to wear them out. Only thing I'm not that excited about is the design, the lizards are a little meh, but I can live with them. Would love a shoe with a classier design that I could walk around the city with.

Fit is diagonal from to back

The toe loop pulls the front of the foot to the inside (my big toe slops over the inside edge) and the heel to to the lateral edge. The rest of the fitment system isn’t sufficient to keep the foot in square alignment with the sole. Like the other two sandals I’ve bought from Xero, I see no way these are appropriate for trail running or walking as they pick up soil, rocks, sand, whatever, with every step and deposits it between the sole of foot and sandal. Ok to knock around the house in or on finished surfaces.
