Get the fun and freedom of our best-selling sandals with closed-toe style and casual canvas comfort.

For years, Xero Shoes customers have been saying “We LOVE our sandals, but what do we do when it’s cold out, or when I need something with closed-toes for work, or if I need a bit more protection?”

The new Lena is the answer for women.

The Lena, like our other casual canvas shoe, the Hana, is meant to be a casual shoe. We don’t suggest that you run an ultramarathon in the Lena, but we know when you have our high-performance FeelTrue sandal base under your foot, some of you will do more in the Lena than just hanging out.

What you’ll love about the Lena

It’s what makes all our Xero Shoes special — we believe in feet! Your feet are supposed to bend, flex, and feel the world. The Lena lets you do that.

Natural FIT - a wide toe box lets your toes spread and relax. Plus the “XERO-drop” sole (non-elevated heel and low-to-the ground) allows for proper posture, balance and agility.

Natural FUNCTION - the Lena is flexible enough to let your feet bend, move, and flex the way that feet are supposed to. Plus, they’re so lightweight, you’ll barely know you have them on. A woman’s size 7 is only 6 ounces / 170 grams each..

Natural FEEL - the Lena uses the same 5.5mm FeelTrue rubber sole from the Z-Trek sandal, so you get great protection while still getting the ground feedback that your feet and brain like. With an optional 2mm insole, the Lena truly lets you Feel The World.

Vegan friendly materials - the Lena's upper is canvas and a cotton lining and microfibre accents. It washes easily with soap and water.

Huarache inspired design - the heel/instep strap adds a subtle, eye-catching call out, but it’s also functional, holding your heel and cinching up around your instep.

Flexible heel - feel free to step on the heel and wear the Lena as a "slide".

Is the Lena just for women?

We’ve designed it as a "woman’s" shoe. Compared to the Hana, the shape is a bit narrower and accommodates a slightly higher instep. The pattern offers a bit more adjustment, too. The canvas isn’t as "outdoorsy" as in the Hana. That said, men with a narrow foot might still like the Lena. And women with wider feet may want to try the Hana.

How to pick the correct size

Sizing for a shoe is different than a sandal. And you probably have shoes of different sizes that fit you correctly.

  1. They are what any shoes should be Review by Maria


    I have always found it very difficult to find shoes, my main preference was without height and with a thin sole, and better if they were also wider, but all three things were impossible to get. To spend a lot of money on shoes has never been within my possibilities, so my solution has always been to cut or remove the soles of the cheap shoes I bought ... until now, that I have decided to invest in the best shoes I have found, with all the features I've always wanted, and I'm very glad I did it, without a doubt it's worth it. They are not only zero shoes but allow something no less important: that the foot expands in all its amplitude when resting on the ground. Zero shoes, thin sole, wide, flexible, lightweight, all-purpose... just perfect (Posted on 11/04/2018)

  2. Fantastic for work ! Review by Virginie


    The Ipari Lena are exactly what I was looking for: a light, wide, barefoot feeling and vegan friendly shoes that I can slip on even for work with a formal dress code.
    If the feet are just between two sizes it is alright because there are insoles that can be removed.
    One magic thing about the Lena is that you don't need to tie them up. They can be adjusted just like slip on and they still fit and stay around the feet without causing blisters.
    The client service is on point. I first ordered a size too big for me. It was easy and quick to send them back (return postage not reimbursed). As soon as I got the money back (after a week or so I shipped the first order back) I was able to order again. Simon was very helpful to get me to order the correct size.
    After 2 months I am still very pleased with them and cannot wait to receive the Z-Trek sandals I've just ordered. (Posted on 22/06/2017)

  3. Very Happy Review by Linda


    I'd been looking forward to the launch of the Ipari Lena since the Hana came out, which were aimed at the male market. I ordered the Black and I'm really pleased with my choice, the red gives a nice subtle flash of colour. I followed the instructions about sizing and they fit perfectly. I thought I would be asked to print a template as I did for my Z-Trails, but it was simply a case of measuring and finding my US shoe size. For me it was the same for my Z-Trails, but it's worth measuring as my partner found he needed a different size when he bought his Hana's. I haven't been outside with them or spent any length of time in them yet, but first impressions are great. They fit really well with enough room for my toes to spread naturally. With my Z-Trails and Lena's I'm looking forward to learning to walk again as nature intended. (Posted on 21/02/2017)
