Custom-made for you… by you!
Enjoy the fun of being “Barefoot… PLUS!” with our Xero Shoes FeelTrue® DIY (do-it-yourself) sandal making kits.
You can make your own barefoot sandals in just minutes.
Get your choice 22 lace colors, and either our 4mm Connect or 6mm Contact outsoles.
All of the soles are made with our exclusive FeelTrue® rubber and are the only outsoles designed specifically for barefoot sandals. Co-developed with the former lead designers from Nike and Reebok, our FeelTrue® soles give you great traction, a comfortable grip, wonderful barefoot feel, and the protection you want. They’re strong, yet flexible, lightweight — a men’s US 9, Eur 42, 4mm Connect weighs about 3.7 ounces, or 110g… the 6mm Contact weighs about 5.4 ounces or 153g. Plus, our FeelTrue® shoes come with our 5,000 mile sole Warranty!
Deciding between 4mm Connect and 6mm Contact? The 4mm Connect outsoles give you the closest-to-barefoot feeling. The 6mm Contact still has great ground-feel, but with a bit more protection and, since it’s a bit stiffer, a slightly “smoother” ride. Check out this video for more about Connect vs. Contact.
Get the right fit: Xero Shoes are not sold by shoe size, since shoe size is notoriously inaccurate (you probably have shoes in your closet that are different sizes, but all fit you!). Instead we ask you to measure your foot to get the correct size.
Our FeelTrue® DIY Xero Shoes kits come with
- 1 Pair of FeelTrue® rubber outsoles in your choice of thickness, color and size
- 2 6′ polyester laces in your choice of fun colors
- NEW – 4mm hollow punch for the lacing holes — FREE!
- Complete instructions for making your bare foot shoes
Your purchase helps support the Tarahumara Indians in Mexico
The huarache tire sandals made by the Tarahumara, the indigenous people of the Copper Canyon in Mexico, inspired our DIY kit. The Tarahumara have been suffering under drought, food shortages, lack of access to health care, and other challenges. When you order a FeelTrue® DIY Kit, we donate 5% of the purchase price to the Tarahumara Children’s Hospital Fund to provide support.
