When I saw Xero Shoes Barefoot Huaraches sandals on Shark Tank, I new I needed a pair! I love walking around barefoot but it isn’t very good for my feet. Xero Shoes are the next best thing. It is like being barefoot but with a layer of protection. So I was thrilled when Xero said they would send me 2 pairs of their sandals to review.
You can get Xero shoes in one of two ways. You can have them custom made for your foot. Or you can order the Do It Yourself Kit. I was lucky enough to try both ways.
I got the do it yourself kit for me with the 4mm sole. I was nervous to make my own but I was actually pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to make them myself.
They have a video that will walk you through the process of making your own shoes.
The kit comes with everything you will need to make your sandals. You start by marking where you will want to cut the soles for your custom fit. Then you mark where you want the toe hole.
Don’t worry if you make a lot of marks on the shoe, I used a ball point pen and it came right off with a wet paper towel. Then you cut them along the lines you drew.
Next you punch out the toe hole using the little tool included in the kit (just hammer it until it pops through).
First thread the toe hole, you want to make sure you secure it on the bottom, you do this by tying a knot then use a lighter to melt it a little and press it together. That way it won’t slip back through the toe hole.
Next you lace up the sandals (they have great videos for this as well, and you can look up fun & creative ways to tie huaraches sandals as well.
It only took me about 30 minutes total to make my shoes. I LOVE them! They are so comfy, it really is like being barefoot (or as close to, while still having a layer of protection). I will be living in these sandals once the weather warms up!
We also ordered a custom pair of Xero Shoes for my mom in the 6mm sole. It was simple to have them make the custom shoe, you just trace your foot on paper and send it in to them. They have great instructions for this on their website. They provide a great fit for my mom and she really likes them. It is nice to have them arrive all put together.
Whichever way you choose to order your barefoot shoes (custom, or do it yourself), I know you will be happy with them. They are great! And they have a great variety of sole and lace colors to choose from, so you can get a pair that fits your style perfectly. I highly recommend Xero Shoes!
