A 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 favourite road-running shoe, Xero’s HFS.
According to Xero, the HFS could stand for the “Highly Flexible Sole” that lets your foot move naturally, or the way you run in it with a “High-Frequency Stride.”
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 boasts a 5mm FeelTrue rubber sole for the right combination of protection and 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 9 is about 6.8 ounces (each).
Huarache-inspired design — the adjustable instep and midfoot straps are not just eye-catching but functional, giving you a secure and comfortable fit. (“Huarache” refers to a Pre-Columbian type of sandal originally worn by Indigenous peoples in what is now Mexico.)
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 whopping 5,000-mile (8046 km!) sole warranty.
