We’ve taken the FeelTrue™ outsoles and added a whisper of comfort with a custom-made 3mm Barefoam™ insert in the forefoot. This makes the Cloud even lighter and more flexible than the Genesis… A men’s size 9 is only 130 grams. The Cloud floats!
Some people think of the Cloud as their casual Xero Shoe, even though it’s sturdy enough to tackle a 100-mile trail ultramarathon.
Why You'll Love The Cloud
Barefoam™ forefoot insert gives a hint of comfort, without unnecessary padding.
Flatiron pattern on the Barefoam™ gives you extra grip.
6mm FeelTrue outsole protects you from unpleasant surfaces without sacrificing ground feel.
Elegant contour to hold your foot, but without unnecessary support.
Pre-laced - just slide in your foot and go.
Patent-pending tension adjustment system - find the perfect fit in seconds, and then you can slide your Xeros on and off in a flash.
Super soft toe post - since the huaraches-inspired lacing goes around your entire foot, you don’t feel the toe post the way you do in a flip flop or other thong sandal.
Super STRONG toe post - won’t pull through the sole like flip flops do.
Heel cup - keeps your heel in place and helps keep out debris.
Nylon Achilles strap with Silicone grip - holds on securely and comfortably.
Elevated ankle holes - the lace never touches the ground, and so it won’t abrade.
Barefoot sandals don’t fit the same as shoes, or other sandals. Just because you wear, for example, a size 10 Nike Free, that doesn’t mean you’ll wear a size 10 Cloud (and most likely you have other shoes that are 9.5 or 10.5… so are you really a 10?). Also since the foot is three-dimensional, any two-dimensional measuring tool (such as a ruler or Brannock device) can only approximate your true shoe size. Manufacturers model their shoes on different foot shapes, so sizing may vary accordingly. 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. - Our sizing recommendations are based on customer feedback, however we cannot 100% guarantee a proper fit.
