Ready for the office, a stroll, or a night on the town…
The Alston is for you whether it’s your job or your style that needs something dressier than our casual or performance shoes and sandals.
An Oxford-style lace-up shoe in full-grain buffalo leather. You can wear it as-is, or oil or wax it for a different look. And at only 340g each for a US M9, you may go through your long day and forget you even have the Alston on your feet.
Why you’ll love the Alston
Like all our Xero Shoes, Alston is built with our foot-first design and natural movement philosophy.
A wide toe box which lets your toes spread, splay and move naturally.
Low-to-the-ground design for balance and agility.
Non-elevated, "zero-drop" heel for proper posture.
Flexible sole lets your feet bend and move the way they’re supposed to.
Hard-wearing and grippy FeelTrue rubber sole with dual-chevron tread for traction.
Lightweight construction for "barely there" comfort.
Removable 2mm insole lets you have more or less barefoot feel.
To help reduce the chance of getting an incorrect size, we HIGHLY recommend you follow these instructions.
Step 1 - Measure your foot
- Place a piece of paper against a wall (if you have VERY large feet, use a piece of newspaper).
- Place your foot on the paper, with your heel against the wall.
- Make a mark on the paper at the furthest point away from the wall… this will either be just in front of your big toe or second toe.
- Take a ruler and measure from the edge of the paper to the mark you made.
Here’s a video showing the process...
Step 2 - Check your measurement against the sizing chart
NOTE... - For the most reliable fit, we recommend you use the foot length sizing info in the table below. - If you think you’re "between sizes" we recommend you go up to the larger size. - Our sizing recommendations are based on customer feedback and we provide advice on a best efforts basis, however we cannot 100% guarantee a proper fit.

To clean your leather Alston, use any commercially available leather cleaner and follow up with a leather conditioner. For tough spots, gently scrub with a warm, damp cloth or damp soft bristle brush and allow to air dry. Then follow up with a leather conditioner.
WARNING: It is possible to over-condition, which may result in the leather looking and feeling greasy or oily.
