Additional Sizing Information

Here are additional sizing recommendations — and size conversion charts — for our shoes and sandals:

SHOES

Men’s Shoes

  • All of our men’s shoes are wider than conventional men’s shoes. If you normally wear a larger size to get a wider fit in conventional shoes, you may not have to do that with Xero Shoes.
  • Natural materials (like leather or canvas) may stretch during initial wear.
  • If you think of your foot as particularly narrow, you can consider ordering a women’s style. Many of our male customers find a great fit in our women’s styles. Just be sure to adjust the size by 1 (for example a men’s 40 is the same length as the narrower women’s 39 in our shoes).
  • People like different types of fit — some like their toes near the end, others like 0.5 cm – 1.5 cm of extra space.

SANDALS

2 Simple Steps to the Correct Fit

  1. Find your usual shoe size on the charts below. For the Z-Trek in particular, try 1 size smaller than your usual size.
  2. Verify the fit by printing the appropriate size template and comparing it to your foot. This step is very important for getting a great fit the first time.

Fit Information for Xero Sandals

  • The Genesis and original Cloud are unisex styles. For example, a men’s 41  is the same exact shoe as a women’s 39.5.
  • The Z-Trek and Z-Trail come in wider widths for men’s sizes and narrower widths for women’s sizes. However, many men with narrow feet find a great fit in the women’s sizes, and many women with wider feet find a great fit in the men’s sizes.
  • The Z-Trek is our only sandal that fits larger than expected for many customers. For example, many customers who are a size 42 in the Genesis, Cloud and Z-Trail are a size 41 in the Z-Trek.
  • The soles of the Genesis, original Cloud and Z-Trek are very thin and flexible. We recommend a snug fit for these styles.
  • The sole of the Z-Trail is thicker than our other sandals, so customers can get a roomier fit on this style, if preferred.

Size Charts and Templates

Note: Be sure to print the templates at Actual Size (100% Scale) and verify with a ruler after printing.

Watch the video below to see how to use the template. For the Venture and Cloud, the toe post position is very important. For the Z-Trek and Z-Trail, the overall fit is what matters most:
