Product Description

If you’re looking for the shoe that’ll handle all of your active lifestyle, the Colorado is for you.

Water-friendly, trail-friendly… and everything in between.

We named this shoe (or is it a sandal?) after our home state, where a single day can take you from the top of a mountain to rafting down a river.

You may recognize a familiar look, but the Colorado is “all Xero, all the time.”

It’s flexible. It’s lightweight (it floats!). You’ll love the comfort that comes from a wide toe box, neoprene lining, and BareFoam™ footbed. And you’ll feel the security of the tire tread-inspired sole (the same as our HFS running shoe) and wide heel strap.

Why you’ll love the Colorado

  • Natural FIT — a wide toe box lets your toes spread, splay, relax, and function naturally.
  • Natural MOTION — the Colorado is flexible enough to let your feet bend, move, and flex the way, well, that feet are supposed to. The “XERO-drop” design (non-elevated heel) allows for proper posture, and it’s built low to the ground for balance and agility.
  • Natural FEEL — the Colorado has a 5.5mm FeelTrue® rubber sole to give you the right combination of protection plus ground-feedback, so your brain knows how to move your body optimally.
  • Light weight — so light, in fact, you could forget you have them on. A men’s 9 is about 7 ounces (each).
  • Vegan-friendly materials — No animal products are used in the Colorado
  • 5,000 mile sole warranty — like all Xero Shoes, the Colorado is backed with a 24 month manufacturer’s warranty and a 5,000 mile sole warranty.

Put on your Colorado, cinch up the elastic lace, and you’re ready to Live Life Feet First!

I've been waiting for these for a long time

These are not my favorite shoes ever. These are my favorite THINGS ever! Well, just about. I've been wearing barefoot shoes exclusively for a very long time and one of the very few holdouts in my closet are a pair of Keens. Even though they're the "water" version of Keens, which means they're much more minimal than the standards, they are still way too maximal for me. But I love the sneaker/sandal hybrid and the fact that they work for just about everything. Well, Xero has come along and solved my problem x 100! I am not a fan of unboxing reviews/videos because I generally would like the review to come after the product has been used for a while. But I got my Colorado's today and I just had to write this. I was worried about the size but find them true. And I must say, I could not have designed a better barefoot replacement for my Keens than these! They are perfect in every way and even though it's only about 33 degrees here today I will most likely be wearing them from here on out. THANK YOU XERO SHOES!!!!

Great shoe/sandal hybrid

Very cool idea. I love hiking in sandals but the rocks getting under my feet can be annoying. This is a great hybrid of shoe and sandal, and I love the elastic laces that makes it easy to wear and remove. I will definitely be taking these out on the trail once spring/summer roll around. Only small negative for me is that the toe-box is a bit more narrow compared to the Prio. Not a big deal for me, just something that's helpful to know I think

Excellent water shoe

So far I've tried these out with a little hiking, running, and walking in a rocky river. They are comfortable, lightweight, and flexible, as you would expect from Xero. They have pretty good traction and seem to grip well in the dirt, sand, water, etc. The footbed inside is a grippy sort of foam/rubbery material, and it stays grippy when wet and in the water so your foot isn't sliding around if you're walking in the wet. It's got nice protection too, so I felt like my toes, sides of feet, etc were well protected when walking through the rocky river. These are actually pretty good looking sandals/shoes too in my opinion. They're really versatile, and I'll be using them especially whenever I'm out hiking in the wet or going to the river, lake, etc.

So excited about these

These are going to be my new go to shoe whenever water is involved. I love how light they are. I own a pair of similar water shoes that I usually just leave behind when I go on trips because they are heavy and bulky but these solve that problem. I also like having the closed toed sandals for both hiking and boating. They are also very comfortable and easy to tighten up with just one pull. Overall these will be great shoes for camping, boating, hiking and fishing.

Awesome!

I love these sandals. I will probably be in these all summer! Super light weight, and flexible, and surprisingly comfortable on the inside. I love the little extra protection around the foot for more rugged summer hiking and these look to shed water easily as well. Well done Xero Shoes!

It's more SHOE up front and more SANDAL at the back. A really cool Shandal.

Anywhere there is water, might a great place to wear the Xero Colorado; another innovative, super well engineered product from Xero Shoes. Xero designers should be winning awards. Heck, Colorado is also a great warm weather product, water or not. Whether hiking, walking, running, kayaking, canoeing, rafting, creeking, etc, the Colorado is a great option. Water drains right out and the innovative midfoot design is super adaptable to various foot widths. Fast drying and well ventilated with all the minimalist features you've come to expect from Xero Shoes relentless dedication to truly minimalist footwear. As a 57 year old regularly running ultra marathons up to 100 miles at a time, I will wear Colorado for training runs and possibly for a 50K trail race. No telling where the Colorados may take me. Looking forward to having them this Spring/Summer/Fall. Go beyond the roads and trails in the Colorado. I've reviewed many of the Xero products in detail. See them on YouTube, search Randy Kreill / Xero. Keep it FUN out there.

Best hiking sandal I’ve used-Dry or Wet!

The Colorado is a unique offering from our friends at Xeroshoes.com. It has a slip on configuration add good, heavy, elasticize laces that allow you to adjust them perfectly to your feet. Some “slip ons” can have issues with the heel strap sliding around, but not these. They were secure on my feet while hiking, running, even stream crossing. The outer sole had excellent traction, even on wet granite. The Colorados’ open design lets water flow in and out, and they dry quickly as well. The inner soles have Xero’s Barefoam, and are extremely comfortable. These sandals have enough style that they are great to wear around town as well! They are zero drop (Xero drop?) of course, and are great for long term wear. I have worn them for hours at a time with no foot discomfort at all. The great ventilation makes them cool to wear, even on warm days. I can’t give these a high enough rating. This is a model that I Hope Xero carries fo the long term. When these finally wear out, I will definitely want another pair!

Colorado everywhere!

I have to say I didn’t have high expectations for these amphibian type shoes after having my Solomon’s for so long I was definitely ok with getting another pair of those. That being said I was blow away with these shoes. They preformed in every aspect from the water to the trails and even held very snug on some rock climbing routes. They seem so roomy but also so nimble. One thing that makes these babies a step above other amphibian shoes I have had is the fact that dirt and sediment can wash right out of the heel cup area and not be bothering you or make you have to take the shoe off to clear the debri.

Great Trail Sandal

The Colorado trail and water shoe/sandal is a do it all piece of footwear! I've taken it hiking through steep and technical terrain, into and through streams, and even on trail runs. There's plenty of protection with the Colorado so you don't have to be worried about scrapes, etc. on the trail. But, you still get a barefoot feeling with the great ventilation and special foot pad. There's also an abundance of room for your toes to naturally splay out while you doing your thing. I really like the grip on these as well. They really grab onto slippery rocks and surfaces. This is a great alternative if the terrain your covering requires "shoes." I wouldn't hesitate to take these out on any type of adventure. Great product by a great company! Happy adventures and Live Life Feet First!
