Xero Shoes Jessie

Product Review (submitted on 28 July 2019):
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!).
