Product Description

“The perfect training shoe. My balance feels better, and I can get more power from the ground.” -Eddie M.

Power and stability start by connecting your feet to the ground. The Forza Trainer’s heel-and-instep “lockdown” strap gives that connection.

The bootie-style construction and silky smooth lining not only make your workouts more comfortable than ever but could make the Forza Trainer your all-day, everyday shoe.

FEEL CONNECTED TO YOUR WORLD WHEN YOU TRAIN IN THE FORZA TRAINER

POWER + STABILITY

In Italian, “Forza” means “Force” So maximize your “forza” with the Forza Trainer. You’ve never felt so secure as you do with the heel-and-instep lockdown strap. Get extra lateral stability with the midfoot strap, molded sidewall, and grippy tread. 

LIGHTWEIGHT MESH BOOTIE

The bootie-like construction and moisture-wicking, silky smooth lining makes the Forza trainer so comfortable you can wear them to the gym, in the gym, from the gym, and everywhere else you go.

At just 9.6oz for a men’s size 9, you may forget you’re even wearing them!

WE MAKE TRAINING 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 Forza Trainer.
 
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.

They are a gift for my son

He’s a Health and Wellness fitness trainer and he specifically asked for these shoes. I will be glad to send his review after he wears them! They look great!

New design, great comfort, excellent barefoot feel

I am recovering from knee replacement surgery. These shoes were the first lace-ups I have worn. I feel great in these shoes. My stride and gait are well supported and easy flowing. I love the new design with added strap. Unlike anything you see on the streets. I am a loyal Zero customer and will be forever.

Strap is WAAAAY too long

These shoes fit really well. I have a wide foot and there's plenty of room in the toe box for me and they are comfortable. However, I had to take a stitch ripper and remove the velcro and sew it where I need it. Out of the box, the velcro did not overlap at all for me to fasten it and I normally wear a 13 2E in other shoe companies. I do have a low arch, but still, I imagine I am not the only one who will have this problem with this shoe. Hopefully this can be fixed for future versions.

Comfortable trainers

I love them. They're comfortable and I can wear them all day. My only gripe is that the velcro strap sticks out a lot. Not a big issue but a little annoying when it accidentally gets pulled open.

Even better than the HFS

I didn't think I would ever love another shoe as much as my HFS but then I got the Forzas. Best trainer I've ever used and my back pain is reduced when working legs due to my form improving. I just wish the women's line had better colors like the mens line. I keep having to order mens' sizes to get the colors I want! Small price to pay though.

Great but strap is far too long

I really like these shoes. These are first pair of barefoot shoes but I’ve been wearing “no drop” shoes for a while now by other brands. I really, really like them. They are very comfortable and seem to be well made. I’m a CrossFit coach and use them for everything except heavy squats/cleans/snatches due to one of my ankles having poor mobility from a previous break and needing lifters. I even used them for rope climbs and they did great, I could actually feel where the rope was on my foot so I could get a better lock! My only gripe with them so far is the Velcro forefoot/heel lock strap is WAY too long. I don’t have dainty feet or giant stumps, but even at casual tightness I only am getting about 3/4” of Velcro engagement out of the approximately 2” of Velcro. This ends up leaving a very long tail of strap hanging off the side of my shoe. Right now since they’re so new it’s not a problem, but I can imagine that soon that extra length will start to curl up or do something goofy and look very bad. I wish there was an extra 1”-1.5” of loop side sewn to the strap further outboard. That way the end of the pull strap would have full engagement and not hang about. If I pull the strap tight like I do for my workouts, I only have maybe 3/8” of Velcro holding on and with a lot of movement I can hear the Velcro start to tear away a little. I still have the insoles in and also wear socks so i bet without those things I’d have no Velcro left to attach to.

The title is right on point

Have 2 pair HFS 1 360 and 1 Forza trainer all great shoes. The forza is the lightest and best work out shoe to early to say but may become my favorite. So far I stil wear the 360 for an all day shoe.

Almost great

I honestly love the look, design, and feel of this shoe. The outsole is great for lifts and provides adequate traction, and the material on the outside is flexible and comfortable. The most glaring downside is the strap; it is so long that pulling it even moderately tight goes past the velcro so that it won't stick. The strap needs to be revised to be shorter to be effective.

Only knock is not enough velcro

I bought a pair of the Forza trainers to use while I row and work out. Normal running shoes have too much cushion under the heel making contact with the foot plates on the rower and awkward angle. Rowing with the Forza trainer was great. Even just walking in them was rather comfy. My only knock on the shoe is that the Velcro heel strap is either too long or doesn’t have enough Velcro. By the time I tighten the strap, the hook side of the Velcro is already beyond the loop side and I have to leave them a bit looser than I’d like. For me, the strap is almost not functional without some physical alteration. I’d try a return or exchange but I snagged the outside mesh on the left heel on the corner of a door kick plate at work and mucked up the mesh. It’ll be ok. I’m gonna try to cinch up the length on the strap and make do. That’s literally the only thing that keeps this from a 5-star review.
