Aptos - The Casual Hemp Canvas Slip-on - Men's

An iconic style, now Xero-fied!

We recommend ordering your usual size.

This slip on is iconic but with the minimalist design and barefoot feel.
– Chris K.

Aptos may have a familiar look, but wait until you slip it on and FEEL it.

With its lightweight, hemp canvas upper, wide toe box, and new grippy sole, the comfort is unmatched.

We named this shoe after a casual, cool California beach town, and when you slip on the Aptos, you’ll feel that “walking on the beach at sunset” vibe no matter where you take it.

“Just-Right” Protection

With a grippy 5.5mm FeelTrue®  rubber sole, you’ll get the protection you want while still getting the ground feedback that your feet love. Slip out the removable 2mm insole when your mood says “more barefoot feel, please.”
 
Lightweight

A men’s size 9 Aptos is just 7.8 ounces each – you’ll barely notice you’re wearing them.

Easy on and off
Elastic sections in the upper mean you can slide in and out of the Aptos with ease (no hands!), but still have a secure and comfy fit.
 
Plus, the Aptos is made from 100% vegan-friendly materials.
If your feet don’t feel as good at the end of the day than they did at the beginning, you haven’t been wearing the Aptos.
 

Life-Changing comfort and superior performance come from using your feet naturally.

That’s what Xero Shoes let you do.
 

Natural Fit. Natural Motion. Natural Feel.

Plus Xero Shoes are backed with a 5,000-mile sole warranty.

Aptos - Men Review

Great product - easy to put on and take off and the wide toe box allows my toes to spread out. I love this feature because it brings relief to my feet after working in the yard all day or volunteering at food bank or the community garden. Also, these shoes are comfortable for walking around or just relaxing around the house. Thank you for designing and producing them.

Good design, excellent function

I have enjoyed these shoes, though they are a .5 size large for no-hands slip-on fit, they work for walks and for tai-chi. I can do a series of activities and they maintain support, yet the advantage of no arch means I don’t have to use them ultra-snug.

Two months in

Two months into owning these and I don't want to use anything but xero shoes. These are my first xero shoes, and my first barefoot style shoe. I've always been the type to walk around the house barefoot, with the occasional short trip outside without shoes(I mean, who thinks they could catch the ice cream truck as a child if they took the time to put shoes on?). I work a job that requires standing the entire time, and on concrete, most positions in my job don't get to stand on any type of padding. My feet feel better in these then they did in super padded shoes, which I had because I bought into the idea that to cure foot pain i just needed better inserts and more padding. I recently used a pair of my old shoes (ones I modified to be closer to zero drop) and was super uncomfortable in it. I only wore them because I needed something a little more water proof. The old shoes felt too tight on the middle of my foot. It felt weird and awkward to walk in shoes that don't move with my foot. On my mention of waterproof, the aptos, despite not being water resistant, do handle normal rain. As in your shoes will look wet after walking in the rain, but you won't feel it. You run into a problem when you reach puddles you have to walk through. You'll be fine with shallow puddles, but deeper ones are out of the question. so about half an inch of water is probably fine to walk through, but an inch is too much. I being a stubborn person and one who has walked around barefoot a lot in my life, did not do a proper transition. But that actually worked for me. The only thing you could call a transition effort is my modified shoes(ripped out and replaced the normal incert to make it more like a zero drop and thinner), but that was because i was waiting for my xeros. Beyond that I just started to use my xeros and that was it. At first it felt a little bit like a strain on my legs, like working out too much, but that didn't last too long. I also recently went to an event where I was basically walking for three days straight. My feet felt perfectly fine and I didn't notice any difference from just walking a normal amount (which for me is my 15 min walk to and from work and the amount of walking I do at work). Which is a drastic difference compared to the time I did an event and found my shoes falling apart so much that I was in severe pain. Admittedly those shoes were old and very well used. But going through a very similar event with my xeros, and finding my feet no worse off then a normal day, is very encouraging. Finally, to echo one of the articles on myths about barefoot, particularly about the sole of your feet. My feet are just as soft as they always have been, you can ask my partner for that. So if for any reason you were concerned you'd get too callused or just that your feet skin would become uncomfortably rough, you need not worry.
