The patent-pending webbing system for the Veracruz literally came in a dream. And it feels equally dream-like on your foot. The woven toe loop fades into the background, the instep and heel straps practically disappear, and at just 7.0 ounces, you could forget you’re wearing a sandal at all...until you feel the grippy 3-layer FeelLite™ sole tackle surfaces like the geckos climbing in the webbing. Perfect for travel. It even floats!


It’s easy to find the right Xero Sandal size for you. The Veracruz fits true to size, so…

    Haven’t received them

    Posted by Paul Anderson on 1st Dec 2020

    I ordered a pair of these on 16th November, I was “invited” by email to review them on 24th November. So far, all my correspondence has been ignored by Xero Shoes. Today, 15 days after placing the order, I’m finally told they are actually on their way. 15 days later!! Is this what you guys call good customer service... ?!?!

    Awesome sandals. Exactly as described. Protect your feet from the hot bitumen but still let you feel Like your barefoot.

    Xero Vera Cruz Sandal

    Posted by Kevin Chow on 23rd Oct 2020

    Very comfortable sandal that fits true to size (Size US8 would be equivalent to EUR 41). A little fiddly to get on but feels great once on. I have the Amuri Cloud for casual wear and run in the Amuri Z-Trek, both with the heel cup cut off (I hate that heel cup!), and these Vera Cruz could replace them both.

    Toe Loop

    The toe loop is a lot bigger on one than the other.

    Poorly executed concept

    Posted by Zero Droppa on 8th Oct 2020

    Don't buy these. Not even for the $40 they're selling for. I own, use and love Z-Trail, Prio and Mesa Trail for their specific purposes. Figured I'd give the Veracruz a shot because it seems like a good concept and since they were $40. Bought two sizes with the intention to return one, ended up returning both. After hours of fiddling and trying to convince myself I like them, I returned them and that made me realise why they are being sold for $40 with free shipping and returns. It may be a good concept but it is executed poorly: -The heel strap that attaches near the little toe attaches on the actual footbed, which takes up significant room and that ends up twisting your foot off the sandal and also pressuring and rubbing that area of your foot. The Z-Trail attach on the outside of the footbed, this is a far superior design. -If you want a snug fit, you have to cinch down the ankle straps, if you do that the sandal has a tendency to fold due to the heel strap anchoring at a single point at the forefoot. -If you don't tighten the ankle straps you end up with a floppy sandal tugging on your big toe. If you do tighten the straps you end up with an incredibly uncomfortable sandal. There is no way to balance the tension and get a good fit without blisters, flapping, folding, twisting of foot off the platform. -The higher lugs on the forefoot actually make the sandal have a negative drop by apx. 2mm. -The lack of surface area due to the sparse lugs contacting the ground on the forefoot lead to quite a slippery surface when not on dirt/grass etc. -These issues lead to an incredible uncomfortable, unnatural and unusable sandal.

    These sandals are very comfortable. They do end up going kind of sideways after 5 steps or so and the outside of my heel ends up hanging off the edge and I have to keep sliding back to the middle but hopefully I can experiment with the straps a bit to try to change that. All in all very comfortable.

    Wouldn't recommend

    Posted by Erika Fearman on 3rd Oct 2020

    First time trying xero shoes and I'm pleased I didn't pay full price. As a podiatrist who believes in the benefits of barefoot movement, I really don't like the positioning of the lateral forefoot strap as it puts pressure on the 5th metatarsal phalangeal joint at toe off, not allowing the forefoot to spread. If I move my foot far enough forward to have the strap in a better location the toe loop digs in, so don't think it's likely to be much better for a larger foot. As a sandal bought to have minimal impact on natural biomechanical function I could not recommended to others. I'm not convinced they're worth $40.

    sizing and comfort

    Posted by Aleta Woolf on 17th Sep 2020

    It's hard to rate these shoes as there are some aspects i love and others not. In terms of comfort they are super comfy - love the feel of walking in them. I also love the patterns on the straps and the velcro is super strong. However i bought a size up based on the recommendations given on the website however they were much too big. The website says you can cut them down to size but it was super hard to do that - the material is very strong and now my shoes have jagged edges - i've been trying to sand them back on rocks/cement but it's taking ages and it doesnt seem right to have to do this after spending quite a bit of money. It wasn't a matter of just cutting back the front i had to cut the sides as well as they looked like clown shoes otherwise. They looked much broader than what the image online looks like. I'm a 7.5 womens usually and ordered the 38. 37 would have been much better. I would def not recommend ordering up as it really is very ver hard to cut these back and then they look messy. overall, now after all the work of resizing them myself i'm happy wearing them.
