5.0 out of 5 stars I'm totally addicted to these shoes--I have them in every color, May 17, 2014
This review is from: Xero Shoes Barefoot Sandals - Men's Amuri Cloud (Shoes)
I come from a family full of foot problems (my mother just had a toe amputated, and that's just the latest of many, many operations, and I thought I was heading down that road with arch and heal problems. Someone suggested I try barefoot shoes around the time I saw Xeroshoes on the Shark tank. They were cheap (the ones you had to assemble yourself) and so I tried them.

When I first put them on, I tried to break them in slowly, but I was very sore. My calves cramped and it was clear that I was walking differently than I had before. It took a while to get the straps adjusted perfectly so I didn't feel toe cleft pressure or have the heal strap drop off, but once I got it, puting on or taking off my shoes was near instant.

Now I've been wearing some form on Xeroshoes for more than a year, and the Amuri Cloud are my favorites. They go on and off quickly, I never have any foot pain of any kind, and the idea that I once thought I needed a shoe with arch support is laughable to me.

These shoes aren't for everyone, but I get a ton of compliments on the street when I wear the bright blue and green ones, and no one seems to notice my dark ones--which is also fine. My feet are very happy and they feel fantastic. And one of every color of Amuri Cloud is less than one pair of good conventional shoes. I still keep some conventional shoes around for special purposes, but 90% of the time I wear these (I even keep slippah socks and wear them in the California Winter).

If you buy them, make sure you watch the video on finding the perfect fit on the xeroshoes site. If you don't get the straps just right, it doesn't work well. But once you get them right: you are done. NO more work.
