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.

My only regret is not purchasing sooner.

Super comfy plenty of room for toe spreading and they don’t look half bad either. Over all would definitely buy again.

Forgot they were on...

As a So. Cal. beach city native I have lived most of my life barefoot. Since I work in an office shoes are required 40+ hours a day. A few years ago I was introduced to footwear with a wide toe box which felt so much better than the typical shoe. Fast forward to yesterday when I put the Kelso on at 5AM and when I finally got home at 7PM I realized my feet felt just as fresh as when I started. This was straight out of the box first day ever in these shoes...and I forgot they were on. I have never experienced that before. AWESOME!

Best sneakers i have ever had.

I was having some issues with bunion pain and ever since i got these shoes i haven’t had any bunion pain for months now. Another thing i noticed was that my toes now are separated and my bunions are disappearing, my back pain is gone and i can be walking or standing for hours and my feet do not hurt at all. Although it took me some time to get used to zero drop but once all those muscles in my feet got stronger the comfort just got better. Another aspect i love of this shoes is that there are no hot spots anywhere to the point that my calluses are gone. I have done everything with these shoes work, working out and hiking with no issues. I’m going to donate all my shoes.

Stylish, durable, comfort

I have had the Kelso's for a few months now and have to say that I really like the looks (although I thought the strap was a darker blue not a more teal color...but still like it). I've used the shoes in a standing job environment through a hardcore Disneyland day with over 10 miles of travel. They have left my feet feeling much better than anything else on the trip and did so all while feeling more like slippers than heavy regular shoes.

Great casual shoe

I've been a Xero Shoes customer for over a decade now, from the DIY kit onward, and the Kelso is tied with the HFS for my favorite. The Kelso is both comfortable and stylish, a combination that most minimalist shoes fail to achieve. They do dirty up quickly like some reviews have noted. But I don't know what folks expects from white leather and grey suede.

Superbly comfortable, and retro styling goodness

I've been hoping for a retro style barefoot trainer for ages, and the Kelso 100% fits the bill. Love the styling, and it is insanely comfortable, straight out of the box. Great, great shoe.

Balance your Spine!

I think the major benefit of the Xero sole design Is the way it somehow distributes your bodies weight differently than any other shoe.

great shoe

Really like this Kelso shoe. Fits perfectly, very comfortable and wear it all the time. Just wish I could get it in the white.
