Product Description

“This is the best shoe Xero Shoes has come up with thus far. It’s made from recycled and biodegradable materials. The sole itself is smooth, but grippy and excellent for road-running. It’s a real sustainable knockout.” – Jarvis C.

Introducing the eco-friendly Zelen: comfort and sustainability come together in this zero-drop, minimalist road running shoe made with biodegradable and recycled materials.

Zelen - an Eco-friendly road running shoe from Xero Shoes. NEW for 2022

WHAT MAKES THE ZELEN THE IDEAL SUSTAINABLE RUNNING SHOE?

 

EARTH-FRIENDLY. VEGAN-FRIENDLY. FOOT-FRIENDLY.

The Zelen features a breathable knit upper made with rPET recycled material and a silky-smooth, biodegradable sock liner to keep you cool and comfortable mile after mile.

The flexible yet durable 5.0mm FeelTrue® sole is made with enhanced biodegradable rubber and features a tire-inspired tread to give you confident grip and control on asphalt, cement, and pavement – all without sacrificing the ground feel and feedback you love from Xero Shoes.

The tension straps, made from earth-friendly recycled materials, are adjustable for added support and stability, allowing you to push further and faster. At a lightweight 221 grams per shoe in a men’s 42, the barely-there feel of this sustainable runner will have you flying down the road yellin’ “Zelen”!

PERFORMANCE AND STYLE.

The all-new Zelen is an eco-friendly performance shoe that’s fast enough to tackle your next half-marathon yet stylish enough to pair with jeans, shorts, or just about any attire. Hit your next sprint in these, then hit your next guys’ night.

WE MAKE PERFORMANCE SHOES SO COMFORTABLE, YOU’LL FORGET THEY’RE EVEN ON.

If your feet don’t feel as good at the end of a run as they did at the beginning, you haven’t tried the Zelen.
 
Life-changing comfort and superior performance come from letting your feet do what’s natural – bend, move, flex, and feel.
 
All Xero Shoes feature a wider, foot-shaped toe box that lets your toes spread and relax. A non-elevated “zero drop” heel supports proper posture. The low-to-the-ground design promotes perfect balance and agility. And our flexible soles give you “just right” protection so you can bend, move, and flex while you Feel the World® in total comfort.

Zelen

They feel amazing, with and without the sole. Best shoe I've ever had and they look amazing too. One remark, I don't get why the shoe has loops at the back of it. I just cut these off so they look less sporty.

My new favourite Xero shoe.

I love everything about these shoes. Look great and feel great on my feet. I thought the HFS couldn't be beaten but I was wrong. This will not be my last pair of Zelen.

Fine, but a bit cheap

The shoes are ok, but pretty low quality. After wearing them twice, the inner sole has started to slip around, so there is always a gap between them and the bottom of the shoe. They shoes, in general, are also starting to lose their shape. "Made in China," etc. A bit disappointing, especially considering the high price point.

Really good shoe in every sense

Despite the fact that “all roads” in the shoe selector sent me to the Zelen, despite wanting a cross training shoe (360º might have been more appropriate), I am extremely happy with them. Very comfortable, good appearance for casual wear and sports. I am adapting to them very quickly. Will probably buy a second set of Xero Shoes for more casual looks. The only warning, beware when wet - no sole height means little barrier to water 🙂
