Product Description

“Best shoes I have ever worn. I actually get excited about putting them on each day.”
– Douglas M.

A new lightweight, breathable mesh upper, a new tire tread-inspired sole, a silky moisture wicking lining, protected tension straps… put all of that together for your new favorite road running shoe, the HFS.

Of course, we know you’ll do much more than just run down your favorite roads in the HFS (and we can’t wait to see pics of where it takes you and what you do in it!)

WHAT MAKES THE HFS THE ULTIMATE MINIMALIST ROAD RUNNING SHOE?

Best Barefoot Minimalist Road Running Shoe 2021 - HFS by Xero Shoes

Why “HFS?”

Well, it could be for the “Highly Flexible Sole” that lets your foot move naturally, or the face you’ll make when you put it on — “Happy Face Shoe” — or the way you run in it with a “High Frequency Stride”, or what you exclaim when you put it on and feel the comfort and light weight: “Holy ___ ___!”

There are as many possible answers as there are things you’ll do in the HFS.

WHY YOU’LL LOVE THE HFS:

Natural FIT — a wide toe box lets your toes spread, splay, relax, and function naturally.

Natural MOTION — the HFS is flexible enough to let your feet bend, move, and flex the way, well, that feet are supposed to. The “XERO-drop” design (non-elevated heel) allows for proper posture, and it’s built low to the ground for balance and agility.

Natural FEEL — the HFS has a 5mm FeelTrue® rubber sole to give you the right combination of protection plus ground-feedback, so your brain knows how to move your body optimally. Also, you can remove the 3.5mm insole, for a closer-to-barefoot experience that lets you Feel The World®.

Light weight — so light, in fact, you could forget you have them on. A men’s 42 is about 192 grams (each).

Huarache-inspired design — the adjustable instep and midfoot straps are not just eye-catching but functional, giving you a secure and comfortable fit.

Vegan-friendly materials — No animal products are used in the HFS

5,000 mile sole warranty — like all Xero Shoes, the HFS is backed with a 24 month manufacturer’s warranty and a 5,000 mile sole warranty.

Slip on your new HFS, head out on your next adventure, and Live Life Feet First!

The HFS runs small. We recommend choosing 1/2 size larger than your usual size.

Caring for your Xero Shoes

To clean your Xero Shoes, hand wash with warm water, mild soap and allow them to air dry.
We do not recommend putting your Xeros in the washing machine or dryer.

The 360 ̊ is a protective cross-training shoe for more aggressive exercise and activity.
The 360 ̊’s sole comes with an omni-directional tread for traction while jumping or scaling obstacles.
And the upper has “grip ribs” for effortless rope climbing and extra durability.

The HFS is lighter than the 360 ̊ , with a more breathable mesh for running.
The HFS’s sole has a tire tread-inspired sole that’s made to handle roads and have extra traction.
And the lining using “37.5” material, which is designed for extra moisture wicking.

The Prio is our best-selling “do almost anything” shoe — running, hiking, working out, you name it.
With a durable upper, it provides a bit more protection.

The Speed Force is our lightest, “most barefoot” shoe.
More feedback as you step and a mesh upper that holds like a glove, you get a “barely there” experience.

The HFS is lighter than the Prio, more rugged than the Speed Force.
The HFS’s sole has a new tire tread-inspired sole that’s made to handle roads and have extra traction.
The huarache-inspired midfoot and instep straps are “hiding” behind a protective welded material.
And the lining using “37.5” material, which is designed for extra moisture wicking.

My favs

My all black HFS's are great! They are very durable and flexible. The grip is out of this world and better than most of the zero drop minimal runners and shoes I have. They are perfect for walking. If you run, your form has to be on point because there is not a lot between you and the ground. You will feel everything! However, if your running form is on point, I imagine it would feel amazing. I would highly recommend these for walkers, runners, lifters, and for other sports.

Like a second skin!

I never thought I would ever write a shoe review. And now it's even so damn long. For anyone who isn't willing to read so much here's a short conclusion: The HFS is a great, super lightweight running (barefoot) shoe that feels like a second skin! I wear barefoot shoes since 2012 and I tried and still use different brands like Vivobarefoot, Zaqq, Vibram Fivefingers, Joe Nimble, Wildling, Shamma sandals and now Xero - their HFS. Any of these brands has great shoes with different advantages in their lineup. Since I particularly didn't need a new pair of shoes I've waited and waited and waited til the HFS finally was 40 € off. I dropped my order on a size 45.5. I usually wear a 45 but Xero recommended to order half a size bigger. As the shoe arrived I put them on immediately. My expectations were kinda low since - as I said - I didn't need a new shoe at all. But they felt so great on my feet! Never had such a great feeling with other shoes right away. They are so lightweight and comfortable that you barely notice them. It's almost like a second skin. I think it's cause of the midfoot straps on the side of the shoe. I put the shoe on a scale. Without the insole (which I never use in barefoot shoes) one shoe weighs just 228 g. That's even 10 g lighter than the already super lightweight Vivobarefoot Primus Lite III in size 45. The outsole of the HFS is super flexible and kinda soft (which is great). You get a super ground feel. Neither the upper nor the heel cup or the tongue have hard or sharp edges. The toe box is a bit on the narrower side compared to some other brands. For me that's just fine. So it looks a bit better (not like clown shoes but more like some bowling shoes). Now to running. I am running about 5 times a week (40 to 80 km) on different terrains at different speeds (from jog to sprint). They feel great while running! Again... you barely notice them on your feet. They are tight, secure and everything feels just in place. In terms of fit no complaints so far. The only little thing I will mention is that on wet (leaf covered) ground it feels almost a bit slippery for me when I'm running around corners or make fast movements. But I must say that I never was even close to falling to the ground. Don't know if it's the material of the outsole or just the underground itself but I never encountered this on other shoes. After about 350 km the outsole looks great. I'm pretty curious if it really holds up to 8000 km. Maybe. But I think the shoe itself won't last that long. In one of mine the stitching between the heel and the insole is a bit flawed. Hope it was no mistake to not sending them back for another pair. Other than that the shoe is manufactured fine. Nothing mind blowing to mention. The HFS is now my running shoe number one and Xero in general now on my radar. I hope other Xero shoe will be that great too. But for now my shoe hunger is satisfied.
