Xero Shoes began with our Do-It-Yourself sandal kits (the Classic kit with Vibram rubber soles). Then we improved upon the Vibram rubber when we developed our FeelTrue® rubber — so durable it allows us to offer our 5,000 mile warranty. Then we started making ready-to-wear huarache style sandals, like the Cloud and Venture. Next we added our sport sandals, the Z-Trek and Z-Trail.

We’ve actually got more sandal designs in the works. Stay tuned!
