Product Description

“The Aqua X Sport might just be the best model from Xero Shoes yet!” – Jarvis C.

Featuring an open mesh upper that sheds water, adjustable lace locks, and a non-absorbent tongue, this ultra-packable activity shoe is perfect for everything from paddle boarding to mud runs and anything in between.

INTRODUCING THE AQUA X SPORT FROM XERO SHOES

STAYS LIGHT – WET OR DRY

At just 7.2 ounces each for a men’s size 9, the Aqua X Sport is designed with a breathable mesh upper with a quick-dry lining, non-absorbent tongue, and toe guard drain holes that help you quickly shed water, so it’s barely any heavier wet than dry.

A FAST, FINE-TUNED FIT.

Get a comfortable, secured fit with the included speed laces and adjustable mid foot and instep straps.

PROTECTION THAT FEELS JUST RIGHT.

The Aqua X Sport uses the same flexible 5.5mm FeelTrue® sole and 3.5mm dual chevron lugs as the Mesa Trail, providing all-terrain traction and just the right amount of protection and ground feedback for responsive, natural movement through all the elements.

WE MAKE SHOES SO COMFORTABLE, YOU’LL FORGET THEY’RE EVEN ON.

If your feet don’t feel as good at the end of the day as they did in the beginning, you haven’t tried the Aqua X Sport.
 
Life-changing comfort and superior performance come from letting your feet do what’s natural – bend, move, flex and feel.
 
All Xero Shoes feature a wide toe box that let your toes spread and relax, a non-elevated “zero drop” heel for proper posture, low-to-the-ground design for perfect balance and agility, and a flexible sole that gives you “just right” protection so you can Feel the World® as you move in total comfort.

Interim Comments

I've not gone very far in these so far but I've worn them around the house without socks a couple days to see how they'll do going farther. 6 miles so far and mostly roads, and I'm very happy with them. I'm looking forward to seeing how they'll do in the trail settings. We have lots of rocks and sand and not much else but I had hoped to test them at the lake last Sunday. Wound up in the medical tent with a saline drip instead, so we'll have to try again soon. Really like the lacing, fit is very good and comfortable, the lugs haven't been an issue in the time I've worn them. Like all Xero shoes, I expect I'll be back for more, but it'll be a while if they last as well as my HFS.

Comfortable, flexible, and great grip

My wife and I both bought these for kayaking. We often get in and out of the kayaks to cleanup along the shore which are often muddy and rocky. They worked great.

Runs Small

I really like the shoes, they just run small. I base everything off the Prio. If you wear a 13 in the Prio like me grab a 14 in these.

Perfect water or warm weather shoe

Xero sent me the Aqua X a few months ago to review--they are fantastic!!! As a former white water rafting guide and currently a boating and sailing enthusiast these shoes are perfect for the river, lake, ocean or any warm weather getaway. As with all Xero shoes--they are very comfortable and provide the perfect amount of support with minimal design. They drain and dry very quickly and offer the perfect amount of sun protection and breathability ratio you want for your summer fun. You will not regret the Aqua if you are looking for water shoes or warm weather adventure shoes.... Check out my video review link below: https://youtu.be/ynGTEdzi8nM Jeremy

I got to test these shoes out in the Jungles of Colombia...

Xero Shoes sent these shoes to me to review, the Aqua X Sports, just in time before leaving for my trip to Colombia for a MovNat Team Meeting & Natural Movement Retreat. I got to really put these to the test out there, with over a week of absolute immersion in a Natural Preserve - in the jungle and in the river. They were great running around, jumping, crawling, etc. on land and in water. Like any shoe they can be slippery on wet/mossy rocks, so move slow and mindfully in that case. We had some heavy rains out there, too, and I didn't want to get my Prios soaked, so I threw these on and had fun running around in the mud and puddles with them. They dried pretty quickly, too, when the Sun came back out. I have had tons of different water shoes before and they're all pretty minimalist, but these ones are definitely my favorite, they look the best, and they feel way more sturdier, like they're not going to fall apart if I use them with the intensity and frequency I like to move.

Excited about these shoes

I cant wait for summer to get out and use these shoes. I think these will be great for fishing and boating. I always struggle to find the perfect water shoe. Some of them are good in the water but very uncomfortable when walking. The other problem I run into with open back water shoes is rock or sand getting in when you are stepping out of the water. The Aqua x sport solves both of these problem by having the comfort of other xero shoes and having small enough ports to let water drain without letting in rocks. They also offer enough protects for the bottom of your feet while still being flexible. Thank you xero shoes for sending me these shoes to review.

Bring on Summer!!

These are awesome! Granted, it's still winter fading into spring here in Colorado, but it won't be long until these Aqua X Sports will be in regular rotation. They are super light, and build to drain and shed water rapidly. My first concern was how they would feel wearing them barefoot, because these are designed for full on water activities, and I was happy to find they are soft and smooth inside. Looking forward to getting these wet! Thank you XeroShoes for sending me this pair to review!

Best water shoes on the market

Full disclaimer, I received these directly from Xero as a review pair. First, lets talk about the fit. I usually wear a size 8.5 or 9 and these are a 9. The fit is fantastic, lots of room in the toe box, great support in the heel. They are zero drop, so there's no arch support, but for those who are minimalist runners you'll know that arch support isn't required. Next lets look at the quality. As always, the fit and finish of these are second -to-none. I've got quite a few pairs of Xero Shoes (aside from my work boots I don't wear anything else) and in 5+ years I've never had a manufacturing defect in a single pair. These are the same, beautiful in all regards. Finally, lets talk about the purpose of this shoe. I'm a fan of all types of aquatics; swimming, canoeing, kayaking, Jet Skiing, etc. This shoe will make your life on the beach, lake, or river a pleasant experience. From sandy beaches to rocky shores, you'll have the protection that your feet deserve while still preserving the "barefoot" feel that you crave. The aggressive lug on the sole will provide protection and stability while traversing difficult terrain; especially while portaging canoes and kayaks through wet, rocky terrain. I highly recommend these to anyone who needs a shoe with a lightweight, breathable upper that is fast drying. If you are a runner in a wet environment who may have to do stream or water crossings, this shoe is for you. If you are a canoeist or kayaker who is prone to portaging or leaving your craft for a land adventure, these are the perfect thing. If you do any sort of water sport or own a watercraft, these are a perfect addition to your shoe collection.
