Much greater balance

I have a neuromuscular disease in which the muscles of my lower legs and toes have deteriorated. I have been using a cane for the last few years to keep my balance in a crowd; to be able to stand without falling into everyone. One day while walking barefoot steadily across the carpet in my house, and then standing firmly and not wobbly, I said to myself, “If I could just find shoes that make me feel like I’m walking barefoot!” So I googled that very thing and Xero popped up. These are my first pair to order and immediately, I felt different – in a good way! I felt my hips shift into a more stable position. My gait was steady and I could stand alone – no cane. I began to try it in crowds with no cane and was so THRILLED to find I could stand and talk to people without my cane! I wasn’t ready to depend on a cane the rest of my life. I ordered two more pairs and removed all my other shoes out of the closet. I realized all these years, I have been fighting the heel – even though I always bought low heel shoes – because any elevation at all threw me forward onto muscle-less toes. I love the negative, Xero heel!

Really stiff shoe

These shoes were really stiff. I thought they would be more flexible. I had to take the sole out so my foot would fit. I have arthritis and was looking for a flat, flexible shoe. They are pretty roomy on the toe, which I like, but the part that sits on top of the foot is too hard.

Minimal shoes for a professional look

Is it busy clinician who works 40+ hours on her feet I have been looking for years for a minimal shoe that is still professional. I don’t think my patients would appreciate me showing up barefoot or in shoes with toes. I have tried a variety of professional minimal shoe options but these are the first pair that I’ve been very happy with! I got a pair in black and purple. Thank you xeroshoes! Can you make a pair of professional flats in brown? Are usually take an eight but I felt like a 7 1/2 was comfortable. The eight look too big. I really like the removable insert.#xeroshoes #livefeetfirst @xeroshoes.

Runs 1/2 size small, but a beautiful shoe

Nice material, very cute. I’m an 11, I ordered an 11 and my toes are all the way to the end. I can’t even wear socks with them. If they had an 11.5 that would have been perfect. I’ll also note there’s zero arch support. It’s a FLAT shoe.

Great shoes!

Only reason I bought it on Amazon versus their website is that I had a gift card. Very comfortable shoes that do not require any break in. I probably could have went down to a 9.5 instead of a size 10. For some reason with most shoes like this a half size down is best. But the strap holds everything in nicely. Love the color as well. Finally a shoe that fits my wide feet and looks good! Would love to get more!

Casual comfort

Barefoot shoes were fairly new to me, so I was not sure what to expect. These shoes are terrific. Well- constructed uppers of a linen look canvas make the shoe easy to dress up or down. They are sturdy, with padding in all the right places. But, the really cool part are the rubber soles – thin enough to let your feet feel the surface underneath and strong enough to protect your sole. I am delighted and have already acquired the leather (Audrey) flat and have ordered the plum colored Cassie. Thank you, Xero Shoes, for constructing shoes that work for me.

Love these

I normally don’t buy shoes unless they are on sale. I read the reviews and thought I’d give these a try. I think I have plantar fasciitis and almost every shoe hurts my feet. I work on concrete floor. These are great

Cute shoes, average width, but to tight across toe box rim, wet up 1/2 size!

Cute shoes! But I have an average width foot, they are to tight across the rim of the toe box, gave that pair to my daughter,Ordered a half size bigger 71/2, but still a little tight across the toe box trim! But a little to big in the actually toe box, if that makes sense. I haven’t worn them out yet, I might would buy them again, just not for sure! A little overpriced for what you get.

Xero Shoes Women’s Cassie Hemp Shoe – Comfortable Mary Jane Style Ballet Flat – FAQ

Would you please consider making the Cassie Shoe ina size 11.5 black? I already own one pair of your shoes and know that i can trust your brand

Hi Michelle, we get requests for larger women’s sizes quite often. Usually, we recommend trying a men’s size, but unfortunately, that’s not an option with the Cassie. Hopefully, we’ll be able to expand our women’s sizes in the near future.

Do these fit the same as the pheonix?

The Phoneix is running true to size so does the Cassie.

Do you wear socks with these?

I don’t. Make sure you order at least 1/2 size larger, maybe a whole size if you want to wear socks.

Is the strap across the top adjustable?

Yes, the top strap is adjustable.

Do these Mary Janes run pretty true to size?

They are pretty true to size. I’m an 8 1/2 and I ordered an 8 1/2 and they are plenty roomy. Sometimes I order up a half size for extra toe space, but that is not necessary in this shoe.

is strap velcroe?

Hello, Thank you for your question. Yes, the strap on the Cassie Hemp is velco!

I live somewhere wet and often muddy. i’m looking to replace the discontinued xero colorados. would the cassies be a good choice?

It comes down to personal preference. The Cassie has a hemp canvas upper and is not waterproof in any way. If you are exposed to wet and muddy environments you may want to check out our hiking shoes instead.

I have a wide foot and a high instep, will these shoes fit me

Hi, Thank you for your interest in Xero Shoes! All of our shoes and sandals are designed to allow the foot to move, bend and flex naturally. This means that there is no arch support, minimal if any cushioning and wider than average forefoot to allow for toe splay. Our main concept is to allow you to move naturally, as if you were barefoot, but with protection! Since everyone prefers a different fit, we unfortunately cannot guarantee that they will work for everyone. That said, we have heard feedback that most of our styles fit up to an EE width comfortably. We do offer free exchanges in the US if you need to swap them out. If you decide that you want to return them, then we do ask that you pay the shipping back to us. You can find our full policy here: www.xeroshoes.com/return-policy Many of our styles are available on Amazon now as well, which is a great non-obligatory way to try out the shoes if you’re unsure if they’ll work for you. They should offer free exchanges and returns for Prime members. I hope that helps! Please let us know if you have any other questions. 🙂

Will you be restocking these?

Hello Rachel, Thank you for reaching out and for your interest in Xero Shoes! We are expecting a restock for the Cassie Hemp around Fall 2021 on xeroshoes.com.

I have a wide foot and a high instep. Will these shoes fit me?

My foot is wide, and the toe box is plenty roomy. However, my foot is flat. The Mary Jane strap hangs over the edge of the shoe. With a high instep, I suspect the strap would adjust well for you.
