Hot feet

The shoes look good and are comfortable. The size was my normal size as well.The only issue I have with these shoes is the heat transfer from the ground. I live in southern California and after walking around on asphalt for 10 minutes my feet were on fire. I can’t see these as usable during the summer.

These fit as expected (in my nominal size).

I get Altra shoes in a half size larger (though both claim to “fit as expected” per Amazon (which is confusing)).Anyways. I had to return the first pair because they were too big. Due the above confusion regarding the “fit as expected” per Amazon.The second pair “fit as expected”. As I ordered my nominal size. I have worn them for walks as long as 3 miles. They fit well. They are comfy. Lem’s Primal 2s tend to give me a weird blister at worst or simply irritate the ball of my foot after about a mile. These do not cause a blister. And, they allow airflow. So my feet are not soaking wet after walking a block (I’m not sure if other men have this issue).I was walking in urban areas. Sidewalks and the like. You may want a different shoe for hiking.I replaced the laces with shock chord. Makes them even simpler. I will buy and try more shoes from this brand. I have wide feet. I like wide toeboxes and zero drop. Other shoes feel like I am being subjected to Chinese foot binding. I get it. I am so sexy, that no one wants me to run away. But, I need to be free! Hence the Xero shoes.It’d be cool if they made a Xero skate (boarding) sneaker. I’d buy it.

My new favorite shoes!

I’ve always preferred going barefoot to wearing shoes, but bare feet are vulnerable to rocks, broken glass, and other hazards that make walking barefoot outdoors a matter of stepping gingerly and mindfully for fear of injury. My spouse has been wearing Xero sandals and shoes for a couple of years now, and she’s smarter than me, so I decided to follow her and try them.They’re my dream shoes. They provide enough sole protection that I no longer fear ordinary hazards, but enough ground-feel that I feel in total control of my step. I plant my foot square on the ground now, not dragging a heel on the way to setting my foot down. On any sort of uneven surface, the ground-feel makes things completely different from the hiking shoes and comfort shoes I’ve been wearing for years. The first big outing with these was helping some friends move. Normally, carrying large boxes that I can’t see around up and down unfamiliar staircases is a scary experience. But with the Xeros, I could just drop my toes over the edge, feeling my way down and keeping perfect balance. Wonderful. I’ve also noticed that, even though these have a far less heavy tread than my usual hiking shoes or Skechers, I feel even more traction than before!My spouse suggested wearing toe socks with them, and gave me a few pairs to try. It was a little odd at first, but quickly made sense once I got on an uneven surface again. I also started pulling the insole pads out, giving even more ground-feel. I feel so much more confident in my step with this combination! And after just a week, putting the Skechers on again feels clunky and awkward, like I have no control over my feet. They’re not comfortable, they’re just mushy. The Xeros feel comfortable – not by padding my feet so they can no longer feel anything, but by helping them feel the ground without fear.

Really comfortable and light, but they roll to the outside (at least on me)

I’ve worn only zero-drop shoes since my niece, the triathlete, recommended them to me years ago. More recently, I’ve been trying minimalist shoes (all minimalist are zero drop, but not all zero drop are minimalist). Most of the zero-drop and minimalist shoes look like workout shoes, though. I thought these Xero Hana casuals would offer the feel I wanted, but in a style suitable for a casual office. The good news is that these shoes are very comfy and lightweight. The canvas fabric is breathable. The minimalist construction is what I wanted. Unfortunately, there was one significant problem, which is that the shoes roll to the outside edge. It wasn’t comfortable, and I felt like it would cause rapid wear on the outside of the shoes. It might be my feet (my shoes typically wear on the outside of the heel, not the inside), but I haven’t felt this roll in other shoes. Maybe it’s inherent in the lightweight construction, or maybe just not a fit for me. In any case, after doing a few laps around our carpeted living room, I decided to send the shoes back.

OK but have some shortcomings

Nice shoes. Real barefoot feel well madeI wear 9.5 but these are a little short. Ok without socks but large right toe touches front when wearing socks. 10 would be too bigReal annoyance is that shoelaces won’t stay tied. They have a slippery coating and keep untying. Need constant attention or double knots

Purchased for bf as a work to gym shoe.

I wanted something a little more sophisticated than the Prio for my bf — since he used to wear his Merrell Vapor Gloves as work shoes AND to the gym. After much deliberation, I purchased these instead of the Prio. He loves them! He said they’re comfortable and for weightlifting, they work out great. He can wear them with his business casual outfits and he says they’re supportive enough for the gym. (I wouldn’t recommend these for running/cardio.) These are his second pair of Xero Shoes and he loves them!

Super Comfy, Good Looking

I have already adjusted myself to zero drop shoes so these took no time to get used to. Very comfortable right out of the box and good looking. I got the charcoal color made from hemp canvas. The hemp should outlast the original cotton versions. All of the current canvas colors are hemp. Looks good with jeans or kakis. I just got a pair of the leather Hana’s also, love them. Surprisingly almost as light as the hemp. I wear a size 13 and these are a tad smaller than most 13’s but still fit ok. They are about a quarter of an inch shorter than typical 13’s. I have found that without an elevated heal sliding my foot forward it is less of an issue. If it were a hiking shoe where I would be doing a lot of downhill it might be an issue. They are also a little more narrow than other Xero shoes like the Prio, just a little. Still wider toe box than regular shoes. If you found the Prio to be a hair loose, these should be perfect.

What material is the canvas made from?

We offer the Hana in cotton canvas, which is our oldest style of this shoe, hemp, and leather.

Are these machine washable?

Hello there, Thank you for contacting us. ​Great question! When it comes to our shoes and sandals, we recommend hand washing them with cool water with a mild soap, such as a dish soap. If they are exceptionally dirty, then you may want to use a medium-bristled brush. Please allow them to air dry afterwards. We do NOT recommend using a washer/dryer, as the variation in settings can be too harsh on the materials. ​ ​If you have any other questions, please let us know. We are here to help! 🙂 ​ ​Have a great day!

Do these shoes have stiffeners in the back of the heels?

Yes it does have a heel counter stiffener. It’s really thin and lightweight, so it helps keep the shape.

Is the charcoal a warm grey that tends towards brown/taupe?

The charcoal color is a solid smokey gray, though they can brown if not washed occasionally.

If i fall out of a tree or off a building will my shoes fly off?

I’ve never experienced this myself but there’s definitely the possibility! Please be safe! 🙂

Are these slip on shoes or tie laces? They seem to be slip on from the product photos

Hello, they will be a tie lace shoe.

Can these be worn at the gym for weightlifting? I’m looking for a present that is a “work to gym” shoe for my boyfriend.

Great Question! This style is more or so a casual shoe. A shoe I may recommend that would be good for Casual or Athletic wear is our Prio All Day. Our Prio style was a original style made for Athletic wear. Since our customers loved it so much and asked for a casual shoe we made the All Day Prio. This shoe has a hint of sophistication that can take you from boardroom meetings to the gym and everywhere in between.
