- The Xero Shoes Genesis is a barefoot-inspired, versatile hiker that nicely blends minimalism and performance. Its lightness primarily comes from its simplistic sole construction.
- This latex-free, vegan-friendly gear is one of Xero Shoes’ trim-able footwear. By simply using a pair of scissors, users can customize the sandal’s shape to their preference.
The Genesis from Xero Shoes is a fairly true-to-size hiking sandal for men and women. It comes in standard width and sizes. Its elastic straps with tension adjustment system provides a precise lockdown. Its sole can be trimmed to match the foot shape of the wearer. The Genesis also has a setup that allows users to cut the ends of the laces to their preferred length.
For surface traction, the Genesis uses the FeelTrue rubber outsole. This 5-mm, component features V-shaped lugs, positioned in such a way that helps users gain slip and skid resistance, whether they are going up steep inclines or down slippery slopes.
The sandal features a contoured footbed that holds the foot in place. It is engineered with a grippy surface to prevent underfoot slippage.
Sturdy yet flexible rope-like straps constitute the upper of the Xero Shoes Genesis. Its Achilles strap is engineered with a silicone grip to keep the heel comfortably centered. Its toe loop is soft yet resilient, resembling those found in regular flip-flops minus the bulk. Its ankle holes (seen on each side) are elevated to keep the straps from touching the ground, ultimately preventing abrasions on the laces.
