Product Description

“These pretty much never leave my feet. They keep up with my fastest, sweatiest workout classes, but also look great with every outfit I own.” – Krissy K.

NEXUS KNIT – Athleisure Meets Barefoot-Inspired Comfort

When you take an athletic design and give it Xero Shoes DNA – lightweight, flexible, foot-shaped – and add a breathable, 3D-knit upper, you get the Nexus Knit.

Whether you’re in the gym, taking a walk, going for a run or just hanging out with friends, you are going to love the look and feel of this shoe.

NEXW-BLCK_Nexus-Knit_Black_Hawaii_2423

Stylish Comfort That’s Ready for Anything

The Nexus Knit may not be our lightest performance shoe, but it still comes in at only 7.4 oz. (W7). More importantly, it’s still built to tackle whatever you want to do in it and look great while you are.

And when it comes to comfort, the breathable 3D-knit upper with its booty construction envelops your foot, so you’ll enjoy a barely-there feeling.

We hope you like talking to strangers, because the Nexus Knit’s elegant, minimalist design will make them stop you on the street to ask, “Where do I get a pair of those?”

We Haven’t Sole-d Out 🙂

Don’t be fooled by what looks like a foam midsole on the Nexus Knit. What you’re seeing is actually a clever minimalist cup sole that wraps around the upper, creating a more familiar looking profile.

You’ll still enjoy the responsiveness and ground feel of the FeelTrue™ outsole that helps your brain move your body efficiently, effectively, and most importantly, enjoyably.

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 Nexus Knit.

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!

To clean shoes with a soft-bristled brush and dry detergent:

  1. Remove loose dirt with a soft cloth.
  2. Mix a little water with the white dry detergent
  3. Use soft-bristled brush, dipped in water to gently scrub shoes.
  4. Gently wipe away excess detergent with a dry cloth.
  5. Repeat until satisfied.
  6. Air dry shoes completely.

Please note:

  • White shoes can get dirty! Please use dry detergent as needed.
  • We do not recommend putting the Nexus 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 45-day return policy.

Nice color,

I ordered the women's 6.5. There is not enough room for my ankle, between the heel and the tongue. I don't have big ankles or swollen ankles. It seems for a smaller size foot, the designers didn't proportionately make the tie area shorter, and therefore the edge of the tongue cuts into the front of my ankle. I've solved the problem for now by rolling the edge under the tied shoelaces.

Xero Shoes

Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We apologize for any discomfort you're experiencing with the fit of your Xero Shoes. Your feedback regarding the design and proportions of the tie area is valuable to us, and we'll certainly take it into consideration as we continue to improve our products. Rolling the edge of the tongue under the tied shoelaces is a clever workaround, but we understand that it's not an ideal long-term solution. If the issue persists or if you have any further concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out to our customer happiness team. We're here to help ensure you have the best experience possible with your Xero Shoes. Thank you for choosing us!

Love Them!

I had been eyeing the Nexus Knit shoes for some time and I'm glad that I finally purchased them. They're super comfortable and are fantastic for both lifting weights and walking. As someone with a million foot issues (wide feet/flat feet/bunions) I find that the knit is not irritating to my feet in the way that other sneakers are. I love the slip-on element as it makes the shoes feel less fussy. Most of all, this is a good looking sneaker that I feel doesn't scream "barefoot" in the way that some other sneakers might. Highly recommended!

I absolutely love the look and style of them but I am not 100% sold on the fit. They aren't as "comfy" as I thought they'd be.

They're ok

My adventure into barefoot shoes began a year ago. I bought a cheap knockoff pair from a big online retailer. I loved them. Still do. They've been washed multiple times and are holding up well despite daily wear. I finally bit the bullet and spent the money on the Nexus Knit. They're fine. I cannot identify anything that makes them better than my knockoffs and I seem to be in between sizes. Not sure they're worth the price tag.
