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.

 

Speed Force 360°

 




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

  • LIGHTWEIGHT – Men’s 9 is only 5.8 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 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 new 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 lining using “37.5” material, which is designed for extra moisture wicking.

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.

Best shoes ever!

Xero stopped making my favorite women’s Speed Force shoes in gray. I decided to try the men’s Speed Force in gray, down 1.5 sizes. It worked perfectly! I have my favorite shoes back in gray! Now, Stephen and Lena, keep the gray color. Please. I also have the Phoenix, which is perfect for dressier occasions All Xero products are quality and the best shoes I have ever had.

They are good, but...

The shoes fit like a dream and are very comfortable and lightweight. The issue that I have is about every 6 to 9 months I'm having to file a warranty claim due to the part of the sole that retains the strap system breaking. The good news is that the company does honor its product warranty and replaces them relatively quickly.

Great Minimalist Shoe!

This shoe has exceeded expectations. I have known about Xero Shoes for a few years now and finally decided to pull the trigger. I do not regret it! This is my everyday shoe as well as my workout shoes. They are light and have held up to every test I have given them so far.

Speed force

These shoes have great ground-feel. As someone who is passionate about driving, this results in a great driving shoe that makes heel-toe downshifts and left foot braking that much easier.

Perfect fit, Perfect shoe, just need more color options

The speed force are my favorite pair of shoes. Nice to wear out in a casual setting, at the gym, on a hike, or even during intense sprinting drills. I would have multiple pairs of these if they would expand the color options. I'm not the biggest fan of solid black. The red ones they previously had were my favorite but I wore them down and they are now retired. Please bring back the blue and red options Xero. The new grey/white/blue are nice but they are accumulating dirt a lot quicker than the red pair I had and are not as easy to clean. TL;DR: Overall perfect shoes. Order half size larger. If they had more color options I could easily see myself owning 3-5 pairs of speed forces.

Very comfortable trail running show

These are great for trail running, and grip reasonably well in hard-packed snow. Only downside is the way they grip rock when rock climbing (not so good, unless the rock is fairly rough). It would be great if you would make a version with a vibrate sole.
