Xero Basic

barefoot sandal tying -- Xero Basic

This is the tying style we use for our Custom-Made Xero Shoes.

Once you get the tension just right, you slip ’em on and off in a second. People use this tying style for everything from walking to running marathons.

First, a few tying tips and notes:

Tying the Lace knot:

This is the knot we most commonly use, especially with our 100% polyester laces.

The “Lace Bead”:

This is the smallest “knot” you can make for your Xero Shoes.

Tying a Figure-8 knot:

If you have our original laces with the nylon core, you’ll want to use this knot.
