“These are so light! Not only are they great on the road, but they look cute!” – Brittany W.

Road running is now even lighter. We took our best-selling road runner, the HFS, reduced the weight, and added a sock-like, breathable, knit mesh upper that feels one with your foot. Of course we know that when you’re not running you’ll love showing off the sleek style.

The Forza Runner may feel narrow, but it will break in and stretch out. So if you think you have a REALLY wide foot, the Forza Runner may not work for you.



When Italians use the term “Forza” they mean “You have the strength to do this!” The Forza Runner gives you the strength to take on your favorite road run and so much more. The knit mesh upper makes this shoe breathable and lightweight, giving it a sock-like feel. At just 6.4oz (for each Women’s size 7), the Forza Runner is so light you won’t even know you have them on.


Protection? Or barefoot feel? You can have whichever you want with the removable 3.5mm insole. Leave it in for extra protection, or take it out for optimal ground feel.  Enjoy road-gripping traction with the tire-inspired tread design. Like any other shoe we make, our FeelTrue® rubber soles are backed with our 5,000 mile sole warranty.


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 Forza Runner.
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 wider, foot-shaped toe box that lets your toes spread and relax, a non-elevated “zero drop” heel for proper posture, low-to-the-ground design for better balance and agility, and a flexible sole that gives you the combination of grip, protection, and ground-feel your brain wants to help you Live Life Feet First.

Caring for your Xero Shoes

To clean your Xero Shoes, hand wash with warm water, mild soap and allow them to air dry. We do not recommend putting them in the washing machine or dryer.


We do! We’ve sold Xero Shoes to people in more than 85 countries around the world.
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.

International delivery can take anywhere from 3 days to 8 weeks depending on how long your order spends in customs at the border.

Please note that some countries do require the payment of import duties for international shipments above a certain value. We advise you to know the import regulations of your country and understand that you will be responsible for payment of any duties and fees imposed by your government at the border.

All packages will be marked as merchandise; as a commercial shipper, we are not able to mark a package as a gift (if you’re giving Xero Shoes as a gift, that’s not the same as us sending a gift).
Also, check our Stores page. There may be a Xero Shoes dealer closer to you.

After you purchase a gift certificate, you’ll be able to enter an email address for the recipient.

You could email it to yourself and forward it at a later time if you like.

You can also take the Gift Certificate code and send it to the recipient.

Please go to Xero Shoes Return Policy page to learn about our 100-day return policy.

Great Running Shoe

This is the second pair I've bought for my wife, she loves them for 3-5 mile runs. They run small compared to her HFS.

Dimitra B.

Second pair..repeat customer

Of course I love them! Got the same pair after putting over 800 miles on the first one.


Xero Shoes

That's incredible mileage! It's fantastic to hear that you've had such a positive experience with your Xero Shoes that you decided to get the same pair again. We're thrilled to have you as a loyal customer and appreciate your support. If you ever need anything or have any questions about your shoes, don't hesitate to reach out. Happy walking!

The heel of the shoe is too high

The heel of the shoe rubs against my heel, causing discomfort. I'm finding it difficult to initiate a return and have reached out to customer service but haven't received a response yet. Please consider removing this review once customer service assists me with the return.


Xero Shoes

We're truly sorry to hear about the discomfort you're experiencing with the shoes and the delay in our customer service response. Your comfort and satisfaction are our top priorities, and we understand the importance of addressing this issue promptly. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by the difficulty in initiating a return and the lack of response from our customer happiness team. Rest assured, we're working diligently to assist you with the return process and resolve your concerns as quickly as possible. Thank you for bringing this to our attention, and we appreciate your patience and understanding.

Hard to Get in or Out of

Love the wide toe box, the fit is great, and the colors good. Note that it is hard to get these on and off. First, the flat laces are tight in the laceholes, and it's hard to pull them open. Second, the opening where your foot goes in is small and rigid. While I like the rest of the shoe, I find these design features off putting. And I dont' want to wrestle them on.


Xero Shoes

We're delighted to hear that you love the wide toe box and overall fit of our shoes, as well as the appealing colors! However, we're sorry to hear about your challenges with getting them on and off. Your feedback on the tightness of the flat laces and the small, rigid opening is invaluable to us as we strive to improve our products. We understand the importance of convenience and ease of use, and we apologize for any frustration caused by these design features. We'll consider your comments for future iterations of our shoes. If you have any further concerns or feedback, please don't hesitate to reach out to our customer happiness team. Thank you for your support of Xero Shoes, and we hope to provide you with an even better experience in the future.

Comfortable Yet Minimal

I really enjoy how these shoes feel during runs. It has been hard to find a shoe that is comfortable while also being minimalistic.
