Xero Shoes Colorado: Intimacy with the earth

The Colorado is one of those hiking sandals that make you feel in control, empowering you with enhanced mobility both on and off the trail. It delivers a kind of hiking experience that makes you feel one with the ground you are traveling on. This sense of oneness is in full effect because of the following:

  • A minimalist outsole
  • A snug yet super-flexible upper
  • The sandal’s quick closure system
  • Vent holes that allow air to circulate with each stride
  • A plush footbed that prevents slippage underfoot
