A Versatile Sports Sandal with a Barefoot Feel
The Xero Aqua Cloud is a ready-to-wear barefoot sandal that is comfortable, versatile, and easily adjustable. This huarache-inspired sandal is appropriate for a wide range of athletic activities, including road running, trail running, hiking, paddleboarding, canoeing, kayaking, and yoga, or for activities around town. The foundation of the Aqua Cloud is a 6 mm FeelTrue rubber outsole, the topmost 3 mm of which is a special high-elastic EVA material—Barefoam—that offers plenty of protection without sacrificing ground feel.
Flexible Zero Drop Sole, Lightweight Design
The outsole of the Xero Aqua Cloud is extremely flexible and has a dual-direction chevron tread pattern that provides extra traction for climbing and descending hills. With its zero drop platform, wide footbed for optimal toe splay, and lightweight design, the Aqua Cloud is a true minimalist hero that will help your foot become strong on its own. This sandal works great in combination with Correct Toes and Pedag metatarsal pads. Each Xero Aqua Cloud sandal weighs about 4.5 oz.
Note: If you are new to using Xero footwear, we recommend that you start in slowly, gradually building up your wear-time and giving your body the chance to adapt to the thinner soles and the increased workload on your feet.

To get the most out of your Xero Aqua Cloud sandals, the manufacturer recommends that you order your normal US shoe size. For example, if you normally wear a women's US size 8 shoe, consider ordering an 8 in the Xero Aqua Cloud.
If you're on the fence about what size to order, consider ordering both sizes and then simply return the size that doesn't fit as well for a refund. If you have concerns about sizing, feel free to contact us or Xero customer service.
Sizing Tip: Correct Toes toe spacers will often add width and length to the foot. If you’re planning to wear Correct Toes with your footwear, we recommend sizing up, especially if you are on the border between sizes.
