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.

Dope shoe.

I’ve tried a number of barefoot shoes and these are by far the best. Lots of room in the toe box for my wide feet. I’m super happy with the purchase, definitely worth the money

Excellent as always

These shoes are light and flexible with good traction on the road. My feet feel great with each run and feel very similar to the HFS (it just has less material). They dry fast which is nice in the Pasific NW. I have had no issues so far and no abnormal wear marks on them.

Speed force rating

I love my Speed Force shoes mainly because when I walk or run, I can feel everything underneath my feet, so my ground awareness is much better, and my feet move as if I’m in bare feet allowing my feet to bend and flex in any direction! I started noticing my foot pain is going away and my balance has improved tenfold.

Hooked on Speed Force

I bought my first pair about a year ago, having no real idea about zero drop or wide toe, but really just looking for a light shoe that didn't drive my feet crazy during exercise only. Within a month of wearing them, they became the only shoes I wore ever for any reason at all. Walking and running became tolerable and possible, respectively, again. And so, I needed a second pair to again have devoted to exercise only. This review comes following the purchase of my third pair, since it seemed I had ample experience to form an opinion based on something other than first impressions. And, that isn't an implication that I needed to replace the first pair. At the one year mark, they are still going strong, being used daily and for 95% of all of my footwear needs. A real daily driver. The fancy straps are showing some signs of fray, which prompted me to buy the third pair. If the straps were to fail, I wanted to have a pair ready to step in as replacement. That's how much I'm attached to a pair of shoes. And I've never been a shoe buyer in a near half-century of living. As an aside, I have also purchased Daylight Hiker Fusion and Prio Suede. Speed Force is effectively useless in any sort of wet if you intend to keep your feet dry, so I tried out the Daylight Hiker Fusion. I decided to try the Prio Suede to have a pair of casual zero drop that weren't quite as severe aesthetically as the Speed Force. I'm not intending to review those two shoes, but merely to remark that although they aren't intended to do what Speed Force does, if you are, in fact, looking for the lightest, most minimalist option, I suspect that Speed Force is pretty hard to beat. I still only grab the boot or the Prio when the scenario truly calls for one or the other. I will always default to Speed Force and frankly, can't really see that changing.

Speed Forces Review

I absolutely love these shoes not only for running but lifting as well. My balance and stability for Deadlifts and Squats have improved and I can actually feel my lower body working while I perform these lifts. My only suggestion which is not a detract of the product as it is but something I believe should be implemented in all models. My suggestion is to have an option for customization of the straps. The base colors are fine and Xero for sure is probably in the works of more colors for their products, but having these straps also available in your own desired color in accordance with the base colors would be nice.

Like going barefoot!

I’ve been barefoot running for nearly 7 years, ever since my heart transplant in 2016. Being outside walking and running is a joyful thing, and the feeling of connection to the earth through Xero shoes Speedforce is the icing on the cake. My feet are protected, free to move and stretch. They are so light I can’t feel their weight. Can’t ask for more from a running shoe.

My favorite shoe of all time

Top notch quality on these. I won't wear anything else as my "daily driver" again. With the 5000 mile sole warranty, I won't have to.
