Product Description

“Best shoes I have ever worn. I actually get excited about putting them on each day.” – Douglas M.

HFS II – A New Take On Our Most Popular Running Shoe

An evolution of our best selling road running shoe, the HFS II is even more comfortable, and more stylish.

While we call it a road runner, we know you’ll do much more in it and can’t wait to see the pics of where it takes you and what you do.

Light, Grippier, and Comfier

Like the original HFS, the HFS II is super lightweight (8.3 oz, M9) so you’ll feel like you’re flying down the road. And with a new tire tread-inspired outsole, you’ll feel secure even if you go off road.

HFS II is so comfy, you might forget to take them off at the end of your run – we’ve even had people go to bed still wearing their shoes because they forgot they had them on!

We Haven’t Sole-d Out 🙂

The HFS II sole looks thick, but it’s an illusion.

We’ve added a thin BareFoam™ layer for extra protection and wrapped it, cup-like, around the upper giving the HFS II a more familiar-looking profile.

Made to Last

Like all Xero Shoes, the HFS II has a 5,000 mile sole warranty to outlast typical running shoes that are supposed to be replaced after 200-500 miles.

Why HFS?

Well, it could be for the “Highly Flexible Sole” that lets your foot move naturally, or the face you’ll make when you put it on — “Happy Face Shoe” — or the way you run in it with a “High Frequency Stride”, or what you exclaim when you put it on and feel the comfort and light weight: “Holy ___ ___!”

There are as many possible answers as there are things you’ll do in the HFS II.

WE MAKE PERFORMANCE 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 HFS II.

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 perfect balance and agility, and a flexible sole that gives you “just right” protection so you can bend, move, flex, and 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.

The Prio is our best-selling “do almost anything” shoe — running, hiking, working out, you name it.
With a durable upper, it provides a bit more protection.

The Speed Force is our lightest, “most barefoot” shoe.
More feedback as you step and a mesh upper that holds like a glove, you get a “barely there” experience.

The HFS is lighter than the Prio, more rugged than the Speed Force.
The HFS’s sole has a tire tread-inspired sole that’s made to handle roads and have extra traction.
The huarache-inspired midfoot and instep straps are “hiding” behind a protective welded material.
And the moisture wicking lining for extra comfort and breathability.

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 45-day return policy.

I really could forget that I'm wearing them

When I first tried my new shoes on at home I was surprised how comfortable they were, especially since they are extremely light. I bought these shoes specifically for wearing at the gym. After a few weeks I believe everything that is said about these shoes is true. I definitely plan on buying another pair for daily use.

Love the updates to beloved HFS!

I absolutely love the color of the shoe and the improvements made on the design of the shoe itself. I’ve worn the HFS for over a year and I love them, but the new ones seem to have more comfortable insoles and the shoe has a bit more structure to it versus the original. I also have noticed that the 2s do not make a squeaking noise against tile flooring like the OGs. That’s been an unexpected perk! I’ll definitely re-purchase these in the future, especially if they release more colors 🙂

Not sure about v.2

While the tread was an improvement on the first HFS. The sole is also noticeably thicker and they don’t provide the same “barefoot” feeling.They also feel much less breathable & I notice my feet getting hot while running or walking in them. I find myself wanting to take them off as soon as I can. Honestly prefer the first generation much more!!

Awesome quality shoes

The shoes so far, have been really nice. They provide nice comfort with that minimalistic feel and water resistance. However, I have to say they run small. I normally wear 9, but got 9.5 to get a little wiggle room. Even that is running small. My big toe touches the front of the shoe. So, I'd recommend going one full size up.

Perfect

Where has this shoe been all my life? I recently came across Xero shoes after wearing different manufacturers for a number of years that were trying to accomplish what Xero has perfected. I love the HFS II men’s shoe and plan on purchasing more in the future. Great quality build, the feel is like none other and the looks are astonishing. Thank you for designing a great shoe. I’m a Xero fan for life.
