Product Description

Our lightest, most minimalist, closest-to-barefoot performance shoe.

 


The comic book character The Flash gets his super speed from the Speed Force. We think this shoe will do the same for you.

While we made Speed Force to be a racing shoe, people are wearing it for MUCH more. Some take it on trails (watch where you put your feet given the feedback you’ll get from the 4.5mm FeelTrue® rubber sole), and others simply wear it all day, every day, because of the sock-like comfort.

Here’s what you’ll love when you slip on your Speed Force:

  • LIGHTWEIGHT – Men’s 9 is only 6.6 ounces
  • GRIPPY – The tread pattern in the FeelTrue® rubber sole feels super sure-footed
  • “BARE-LY THERE” – the mesh upper with its silky smooth lining gives you a real barefoot-feeling

The other reasons you’ll love the Speed Force are thanks to its Xero Shoes DNA:

  • A wide toe box — lets your toes spread, splay and move naturally
  • Low-to-the-ground design for balance and agility
  • Non-elevated, “zero-drop” heel for proper posture
  • The flexible sole lets your feet bend and move the way they’re supposed to, naturally
  • Removable 3mm insole lets you choose the amount of barefoot feel you want
  • 100% vegan-friendly — no animal products are used in the Speed Force
  • 5,000 mile sole warranty

We can’t wait to hear about the records you break in the Speed Force, and how it helps you Live Life Feet First!

We designed the Speed Force to be a racing shoe. Our lightest, most minimalist, closest-to-barefoot shoe.

What we’ve found, though, is people are wearing it for WAY more than that.

Road running, light trail running, walking, hiking, working out, CrossFit, slacklining… it’s up to you. Once you get them on, I’m sure you’ll do things we never thought of (and we want to see pictures of that!).

Put on your Speed Force and Live Life Feet First!

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.

Caring for your Speed Forces

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

Xero are my favorite shoes!

I love these shoes! My balance and leg strength have increased dramatically. And I love how they make me feel. I'm in control and can hop, skip, jump, turn on a dime. I'll never go back to my old shoes again!

So far, so good!

I'm normally a size 10 (US), but this 10 1/2 pair is perfect. Going from these to socks/barefoot is a breeze, but now when I put on my thick-soled slip ons they feel so wrong. Looking to get some hiking boots too.

I love the way they feel, but they do not last.

I really truly believe in the ides behind Xero shoes and minimalist footwear. I've worn several pairs of Xero shoes starting with the prios and now speed force. I love the way both feel on my feet and when I'm wearing them I love that I get comments about them and I can talk about the "crazy" barefoot running ideas. I want Xeros to be my shoe, but the quality and durability are completely unacceptable and I need Xero to step it up. The shoes practically fall apart after a few months wear despite the 5000 mile warranty. They claim they don't know how long they will last, but I do, it's not that long. From 2 different style and multiple replacements, I don't know what's going on. Has there been a bad manufacturing run on the shoes? Am I incorrect in assuming these can be my daily wear shoe? It remains to be seen. I'm not 100% ready to give up on Xero, I just want some shoes to last.
