Unlike our DIY kits, or even our Custom-Made Xero Shoes, the Amuri Venture is 100% ready-to-wear.

Key features

Our exclusive FeelTrue® rubber outsoles, the only sole material made specifically for barefoot sandals. 5.5mm thick for great ground feel with the protection you want.

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, helps keep out debris, and adds a splash of color.

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.

How to pick the correct size

Sandals don’t fit the same way that shoes do, and the sizing isn’t quite the same.

Adjusting Amuri Venture for a perfect fit

  1. Love my Ventures Review by Lawrence


    Love my Xero Ventures for running and everyday use. Fantastic for paved surface running and also a bit of trail stuff, especially as they are easy to wash, dry and pack. The Ventures slip on and off quickly by slipping the heel strap off and have a very nice secure feel once on. The lacing system allows fine tuning of the lace tension for the perfect fit, and also means that the tension can be quickly adjusted for comfort in longer races. I have had some fantastic adventures in my ventures including half marathon races and long hikes including the Aradena gorge in Crete. The customer service is absolutely fantastic with rapid order delivery and a very solid warranty. Highly recommended. (Posted on 01/12/2017)

  2. Bringing fun back into running Review by Steve


    First impression was that these felt heavier than I expected; I normally run in Merrell Vapour Gloves which are wafer thin. I also had trouble with a bit too much noise when road running. I managed to fix that by trimming the width down a bit with a pair of scissors and adjusting the angles so the intersection between the two cords is close to my ankle rather that towards the toe ... perfect.

    Now everything feels pretty good and these are fantastic fun to run in. Loving them.

  3. Best barefoot sandals I've had Review by Dave


    I've been running in huaraches/ sandals for a few years. I've had a pair of Luna Sandals - which were great - and some Vivobarefoot sandals - not so much. But these are the best ones yet - really comfortable and quick to put on with a mechanism that doesn't loosen while wearing. After four months there aren't even any signs of wear on the soles. And so much better value than the Lunas. These are really great barefoot sandals. (Posted on 13/04/2017)

  4. Perfect for first timers Review by Ben


    I have been running barefoot/ minimal for a year with help from the original DIY kit. They were a fantastic introduction for me. My only gripe was that, as I run mainly on roads, the straps would wear down very quickly underneath the sole. I wore through a set of laces every 100 miles.
    But they proved to me that barefoot is the way to go. So I bought the Amuri Ventures last week as the straps are raised off the ground and therefore shouldn't wear down as quick. They are perfect.
    I've only had one run - I threw them on today for a quick 10-15km to try them out and ended up doing 22km because they were so comfy- no aches, no blisters, the run was easy and light. Love them.
    Easy to adjust, light, tough, comfy, cheap.
    At around only 10 squids more than the DIY kit I would recommend buying the Amuri Ventures instead of the kit. You can't go wrong. (Posted on 27/11/2016)

  5. Built for the long haul Review by Gonk


    I decided to try the Ventures after having used the phenomenal Z-Trail sandals for the last couple of months for running (and everything else besides).

    The plus points: To me the ultra simple form of the Venture looks better, they have reflective elements incorporated into the laces, and they are noticeably cooler still than the Z-Trail in hot weather.

    Up until now I have run around 40km in them in addition to casual use. The 'ground feel' is excellent even on fairly rugged trails. The construction is every bit as excellent as I expected, these are stoutly built for the long haul.

    I have had a couple of smaller problems with them: Although they are easy to adjust I found it difficult to find the sweet spot for running, they do not seem to lock onto the foot quite as well as the Z-Trail do and the flexible sole can 'flop' a little. Perhaps I overtightened them to compensate, but this has led to a bit of rubbing. The lower sole and more open construction can let more grit and dust to the feet, and this in conjunction with sweat did lead to some irritation at the toepost and on the sole at the front of the sandal.
    In normal use the toepost is no problem although I am mostly aware of it. It's tough but soft synthetic rubber, it's not going to hurt you.

    Putting those Z-Trails back on felt like donning boots though :) (Posted on 20/09/2016)

  6. Great shoes and great service! Review by Mireille


    Simon really helped me out to get the right size of these shoes.
    And now they fit perfectly! I'm very glad I've ordered them.
    Though I live in the Netherlands, I received the shoes very fast.
    I wear these shoes all the time! (Posted on 12/05/2016)

  7. My go-to footwear! The sandal I've been longing for! Review by Craig


    I love sandals! The Amuri Venture is my first ever minimalist/barefoot sandal and I couldn't be happier! I wear them whenever I can and I'm going to try and keep wearing them throughout the colder months. I love the feeling of total freedom these sandals give. I do own a pair of Vibrams which are great but they just can't compete with the openess and breathability a sandal gives. I wore these for some hill sprints the other day and they held up just fine, there was no slipping around and they didn't hinder my performance in any way. The design is just plain awesome; sporty, trendy yet simple. I love that it's just some nylon cord and no bulky straps.

    For anyone thinking of investing in a barefoot sandal, I highly recommend it and I highly recommend that you go with one made by XeroShoes. The customer service you get with this company is amazing, friendly and responsive! The website itself is great and I find myself frequently browsing it.

    I'm already looking to get another pair and I've been eying up the DIY kits. :D (Posted on 06/07/2015)

  8. Not as good as the basic Xeros Review by Kathryn


    Xero shoes are great if you love to be barefoot. I had basic Xeros for a while before I bought these and since then I've passed these ones onto my sister and gone back to the basics, which I love.

    I just didn't find the Amuri Venture so comfortable, and they hurt a little. I still give them a good four stars because I think they just didn't work for me due to having very narrow feet and maybe not getting the correct size - my sister loves them now.

    I also think that there's no need for the extra heel back and rubbery bits. Simpler is always better for me.

    Still, a good shoe. Just not as good as the basics for me :)

  9. Fantastic shoes, fantasic service! Review by Charlie


    I have been using these shoes for over a month now and I am really pleased with how they have improved my running technique. As part of my marathon training I go out in my Amuri Ventures once or twice a week and find I can easily do 5 miles on or off road. They are light and comfortable and your feet will be thanking you for the freedom they give. Take it easy to begin with and the rewards will be huge. If you can't run in these shoes then its your technique that's wrong!
    The service from xero shoes is fantastic, super fast dispatch and great customer care. Had to exchange my first pair as I bought the wrong size, completely hassle free and fast turnaround.

  10. Really comfortable footwear Review by Norfolk barefoot beginner


    I love these shoes , as a middle aged man who used to love running . I am now experimenting with the barefoot technique, at the moment I have walked everywhere in these shoes of distances of 3-4km and feel my feet and legs getting stronger all the time . The long term goal is try and get back to running using these shoes, taking things slowly couple of mins every other day so far so good, great footwear. Thinking of purchasing another pair.

  11. Excellent! Review by Scottish Girl


    Since a knee injury in traditional running shoes I have made the transition to minimalist/barefoot running. These shoes are so very close to barefoot and look great. The toepost took a little getting used to but worth the initial slight discomfort. Now I wear at every opportunity! (Posted on 11/04/2014)

  12. Very very good, well crafted, minimalistic sandals WITH comfort Review by Benjolino


    Well, there are a lot of professional reviews of this Amuri Venture sandals out there by people who tested them with lots of kilometers of "Querfeldein" runs as we say in German, which means running off streets actually... I don't do such stuff and I am not a professional barefoot runner. So what could I add to the field of experiences with these shoes?

    Most importantly I would just like to add another "wow... Great shoes! Great company!" and very fast delivery! - it took only two days from UK to Hamburg, Germany. I would not have dreamed of such quickness and was delighted.

    AND I can add my experiences with the Amuri Ventures in "Hamburger Schietwedder" which means it's raining cats and dogs... But since it was warm enough for walking barefoot, I tested them in "rough environment" and they suited me very well. Not one single time did they slip off my feet as normal "Flipflops" would have. There was no dirt under my feet, thanks to the cap at the end if the shoes.

    I LOVE them. Lightweight, slim, ridiculous cheap price (taking into account the amount of thinking energy it must have taken to improve them from the scratch).

    Thank you XeroShoes!

  13. Best workout footwear Review by Andreas


    I've been going from padded traditional shoes to barefoot shoes to heavy sandals to this. Your feet have all the technology you ever need, so don't waste money on anything else because for what you do for your body, this price is unbeatable. The thin sole gives you maximum sensory feedback from the ground when wearing footwear.

    I have no long term experience with sandals so I had to take them for a couple of runs before I got the perfect tying. My feet usually swell a bit when they get warm therefore this is perfect because it's so easy to loosen. I'm mostly a runner but I could see a use for these in most workout situations.
