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:

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).

I wish I had 6 stars

The Vera Cruz is hands down the best sport/run/hike sandal on the market. The sole is more aggressive and flexible than the Z Trail, the toe loop and mid foot strap hold your feet centered on off camber trails. The only change I’d make would be to have the rings on the straps a little over sized because I need to pull the strap past the rings to put them on. I worry I will break the stitching on the velcro prematurely. As an aside, I measure as an 8 1/2 and usually go to 8’s in Xero sandals, but did 9’s in these, like my running shoes, and was happy I did. Another great job by Xero Shoes!

Veracruz Review

First off, this is my subjective review. My feet are different than everybody else's. Now, the VeraCruz sandal kicks ***. Simple as that. The concept is great. It's a great shoes made by a great company. I however will not give it the perfect rating. That is because I think the straps should be flowing the other way. The straps tighten towards the arches of the feet. And in my opinion, the straps should flow away from the arches. That is because I believe the tension that holds the foot in place on the sandal should be fighting against ankle pronation and now tighten towards the path of pronation. This caused my feet to slip off the sandal and turn inward to account for the tension being forced outward in. All I'm saying is that I would like the tension to flow inward out. If that makes sense? But that's just probably a personal problem. Still a great product. I still wear them. Just not as long as I wear my other xero sandals.

My new Veracruz are outstanding

After the break in period, just walking for a few days,finding the right adjustments and so forth, I hit the trails and was not disappointed. I had three marks that the sandals had to meet for me to feel satisfied. First was would the open toe lead to more tripping and snags. I am glad to report that after 10 outings, about 60 miles total, I haven't tripped once, where as with my closed shoe I would trip pretty regular. Second, I was concerned about sand and dirt being a problem, the trails in Florida are pretty sandy, but the dirt works it's way put quickly, where as the closed shoe would hold it in And lastly, 3, how do they feel when I run? I've never had a better feeling pair of footwear, ever. So glad I bought them, Thank you. Dan Wallace Age 68. Pensacola, fl

Jungles and Mountains for a month

I just spent a month in Panama wearing only these Veracruz. That was in the steep cloud forest of Amistad National Park near the border with Costa Rica, the beaches on Bocas del Toro, and the lowland jungle along the canal. I had brought other shoes, but never wore them! My vow was to buy a second pair as soon as I returned home -not that there is anything wrong with the pair I wore. I confess to having second thoughts when I saw the new price for men's Veracruz and it didn't help when I saw the same shoe for women at the original price I paid for mine.

Thank you Xero shoes for the Veracruz

I want to thank the Xero shoes team for creating an amazing product the Veracruz. I was skeptical at the lacing but nevertheless put trust in them for the many pairs of shoes/DIY sandals I've owned them over the years. There's no way it would be better then the Z-Trek I've owned since 2015 and have been running with them till it had a hole in the balls of the Z-Trek. When it arrived, I'm stoked at how incredibly comfortable it was! I'm excited to run in these!

Can these survive the trail?

First time wearing these, I opted to test them on an off the beaten path trail hike. They held their own against conditions including volcanic rock, snow, and sage brush. I was able to trot down hill fairly well, but struggled with traction over frosty ground and rocks. Like with the Cloud, this sandal also tries to turn and slide around under my foot.

Awesome

If we only had the weather, I would live in these sandals. For myself I find the cross strap (the shorter of the two) a little too short, only just reaching the hook & loop, that said they still get 5 STARS for looks and feel.

Veracruz Part 2

Well,this is my second pair of Veracruz Sandals. The first pair was kind of a bust for me,so I decided to go up another full size to see if that helped my problems. All in all,they are 80% better than the previous pair. Though my feet still slide off the sandal,just not to the same degree. I have to keep the straps as tight as possible to achieve this,but that is what I have to do. As far as the sandal goes,it is great!!! The toe hoop is wonderful and the ride is comfortable. They are light and you move very well. I am going to keep an eye on them,to see if they make any adjustments, maybe they will fit my foot shape a little better. I have high Hope's for this sandal.
