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.

These are great!!

My 10-year-old put these on after they came in the mail and ran up and down the driveway screaming, “I feel so free!!” He loves them.

We love these. Can’t wait to try the kids shoes as well. I would pay significantly more for American made products. The kids use their Velcro more than I do because the buckles are difficult. It’s easy to replace but sturdier Hook and loop would be ideal.

6 year old daughter loves them

She has no issues adjusting them and putting them on. Couldn't be happier with this pair of minimalist sandals.

Z-trail -kids

The kids love them. The closest thing to barefeet without concern over stepping on things kids step on while running, climbing, biking, etc.! I love that they don't mis-shape their feet like padded athletic shoes.

Good kids sandals

I love the idea but I wish these had thinner soles. On small feet the shoes don’t bend as easily as the adult version. The straps are also a bit tricky for my child. Overall the sandals are made well and my kids love the bright red!

Can finally let my toes breathe!

Firstly, being in the UK I was relieved to find that I had ordered the right size. I go for children’s footwear as they fit my tiny feet better. As with other reviews, it takes a while to adjust the straps to get them snug without being tight. I’ve only worn them for short outings to the shops, and a quick spin around the block in the local park, but they seem comfy enough and I know my toes aren’t getting squished and sweaty. Already through wearing them I’ve learned that I tend to slap my left foot down quite hard when I walk, which caused my knee to ache just on a short stroll. Therefore I had to adjust my gait to compensate and the ache went away. Looking forward to longer walks and getting them fully broke in. However, they’re not as light as my Crocs slip-ons, but at least I know the Xeroes will stay on my feet! That being said, my left foot still seems to move forward while I walk, and my big toe nudges over the front. Maybe I just need to keep adjusting the fit because the next size up would be too big and I don’t want to have the ragged edges from trimming the soles down. I do wonder about their longevity of the sandals, as they are quite pricey for what they are. The way I have them fitted, the velcro strap overlaps only by about an inch at the back of my heel, so there’s not a great deal of contact where they meet together. Will have to wait and see how they hold up in the long term.

My daughter jumps right into her sandals—and this is divine because I can’t get her to wear shoes. She is a runner, I imagine track and field when she is older, so I want her to retain her foot shape. She said these feel like she is barefoot: perfect.

Good concept, but try again

When running and feet get wet, the soles are really slippery. Plus there's just too little padding; asphault feels hard when running. Yes, I'm running on my forefoot. Also there isn't enough padding for stepping on the odd rock. I'm glad I tried them, but they just don't work for me.

These are wonderful though THEY RUN SMALL

Considering getting an adult pair for myself now. I love them, and so does my kid
