Best Minimalist Sandal I've Worn Review by softsolesuk
Having previously purchased the Amuri Venture and Genesis, both of which presented problems due to their lacing systems, resulting in a sandal that repeatedly flapped on my left foot only (the Vivobarefoot Eclipse and Luna Venado 2.0 also did the same), after stumbling upon the Jessie in early 2019, the simplicity of its design left me feeling sufficiently intrigued to part with my money.

Granted, while the Jessie is indeed marketed towards the fairer sex, despite being described as a unisex sandal, I'm simply concerned with how/whether a minimalist sandal will allow my feet to function as if they were bare (when conditions prevent me from doing so during summer months).

Upon purchasing a pair in black, quickly beginning to appreciate how introduction of a toe loop wasn't just an evolution for minimalist sandals, but also a game-changer, I purchased a the Jessie in coral too.

They truly are as minimalist as you're ever likely to see, yet the combination of a toe loop and ankle strap secure the 5.5mm outsole to the feet, affording the ability to move in a naturally and unhindered manner, thus, increasing confidence in the product, regardless of whether terrain is urban or slightly off-road.

Throughout the summer of 2019, I regularly wore my Jessies on forest walks/trails, revelling in the true ground feel and protection that they afforded my feet without any harm coming to them. Granted, they were filthy afterwards, but use of a scrubbing brush and rinse in warm, soapy water never failed to leave them looking as good as new.

Although they may have been confined to storage since November 2019, as another spring approaches, my feet are thoroughly looking forward to spending time in functional, yet incredibly aesthetically pleasing zero-drop minimalist sandals throughout 2020. Roll on BST!! (Posted on 05/02/2020)
Almost perfect Review by Flightlessbird
I received these today I have a few other barefoot type shoes but this is my first xeroshoes I love the look and I like how minimal they are but I think the toe straps are a bit too far from the edge it’s making my feet sit a bit squint in the shoe, it’s a bit disappointing as I’m very happy with everything else about them. I do have wide feet so maybe that’s something the designers should consider. (Posted on 02/08/2019)
Love these sandals Review by Emma
I bought these earlier in the year before a holiday and they are fantastic, they required no wearing in and have been so comfortable.
They do not make that annoying flip flop sound as they are attached at the ankle and toe, they are super flexible and have stayed put on my feet even when walking some short trails.
I know some people have had issues with the size of the toe strap, I would say I have average width toes and they fit me fine. And as the ankle strap is elastic I usually just slip then on and off without needing to redo the strap each time.
I am normally a size 7 and I found these true to size. (Posted on 02/08/2019)
I love these but they need some improving Review by Lucy
I would love to give these 5 stars, because in many ways I love them. I have the pink ones. I love what they look like on my feet, but I feel like they need to be reworked to make them 5 star sandals.

The sole: is quite stiff ( even after several weeks of heavy use). I also have the amuri clouds and I wish the jessie had the same soles. The Jessie just aren't as flexible as any of my (many) other barefoot shoes (from various brands)

The straps. These are a very easy shoe to put on and the straps don't rub at all. However, especially over time as the straps have loosened a little, because the ankle strap is only adjustable in front of the ankle, if I need it tighter, and because the back is elasticated, my foot is pushed backwards towards the rear of the sole - too near - and away from the front of the foot and out of the toe loop. (The sandal sole is exactly right for my length foot, so it's not that). So I'm continuing to wear them, but I can't walk any distance in them, they're really shoes for standing about, and I need my (wonderful) amuri clouds for going anywhere. I'm sad about this as I feel that Xero's ethos is about getting out and about and not standing about looking pretty (although I'm glad to have this pretty pair!).
