Product Description

“The Kelso is really comfortable. The leather and suede is really high quality, they don’t need any breaking in. They look sharp!” – Chris W.

The Kelso is a fresh take on the classic court-style shoe you’ve always loved. Enjoy it’s sleek full-grain leather upper and stitched soft suede accent panels, along with patterned pinhole vents, and a moisture-wicking mesh lining to keep you cool.

WHY IS THE KELSO YOUR NEW FAVORITE COURT-STYLE SHOE?

LIGHTWEIGHT PROTECTION THAT FEELS JUST RIGHT.

The Kelso features a wider, foot-shaped toe box to let your toes spread and relax. It has a flexible 6.0mm FeelTrue® sole with a herringbone tread pattern to provide ground-gripping performance on the court without sacrificing the all-day comfort you’d expect from Xero Shoes.

While you’re taking a stroll through town or tearing up the court, the lightweight (10.4 ounces each for a Men’s 9) Kelso will speak for itself.

GOES ANYWHERE. GOES WITH EVERYTHING.

The all-new Kelso is a casual minimalist shoe that is grippy enough for tennis matches, yet more than stylish enough to pair with jeans, khakis, shorts, or any casual attire. Enjoy your midday tennis break and shift straight back to work all in the Kelso.

WE MAKE ACTIVE 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 Kelso.
 
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 safely Feel the World® in total comfort.

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.

Caring for your Kelsos

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

Hoping they last this time!

I am a loyal Xero customer, previously getting a pair of tye sandals, prios, torontos, and kelsos. I have had to use the sole warranty twice, but hopefully the third time is a charm!

Perfect for Formal

I’ve bee into barefoot biomechanics for 24 years and have never been able to conceal my non-conventional shoes until now. I wore the solid black version of this shoe with a suit to a wedding and for the first time enjoyed healthy comfortable feet without appearing peculiar to uninformed family and friends.

Comfortable and nice looking shoes

This is my 2nd pair of Xero shoes (I already have the HFS). Kelso has a nice wide toe box and will be a great walk around sneaker.

These are comfortable shoes!

I love these shoes because they are athletic and casual dress at the same time. The comfort is fantastic.

Blast from the past but better!

Just got my Kelso’s today and I absolutely love them! Very comfortable and I plan to use them as casual wear. The build quality is top notch and the look is awesome! They are true to the Xero shoe standards. I have a couple pairs of HFS that I use for running and LOVE them also. I ordered the Kelso in my normal size and they fit perfect! I had to order the HFS a half size larger as those tend to run smaller.

The men's shoes that I purchased for my husband did not fit him, so we sent them back. They were good quality, just didn't fit
