A Stylish & Comfortable Casual Shoe
The Xero Pacifica is a stylish and comfortable casual shoe with a wool-blend upper and moisture-wicking lining. This hip minimalist shoe incorporates a flexible 5.5 mm FeelTrue sole that offers you a barefoot feel yet still provides sufficient protection for your foot’s sole. The foot-shaped Pacifica also includes a zero drop platform, which stabilizes your foot and ankle and encourages natural arch support. The huarache-inspired heel straps keep your heel snugly in place while the wide toe box allows your toes to splay the way nature intended.
Lightweight Design, Soft Upper, Supple Sole
With its lightweight design, soft upper, and supple rubber sole, the Pacifica is all about letting you experience natural movement while helping you develop optimal posture, balance, and agility. This shoe’s dual-direction chevron tread pattern provides you with plenty of grip, and the overall minimalist fit and feel of the Pacifica lets your foot flex, bend, and move in a way that builds foot strength and resists common foot and toe problems, such as crooked toes, ball of foot pain, and plantar fasciosis.
Can Be Used with Other Natural Footgear
The eye-catching Xero Pacifica is designed to be a casual shoe, though, with its foot-healthy design and sporty feel, it can also be used for light athletic activity if the occasion arises. This shoe can also be used with other helpful natural footgear to help rehabilitate the feet, including Correct Toes, Injinji toe socks, Pedag metatarsal pads or Strutz foot pads, and Naboso insoles. Each Xero Pacifica shoe weighs about 7 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 Pacifica shoes, the manufacturer recommends that you order a half-size larger than your normal US shoe size. HOWEVER, because we recommend that women order the men's version of this shoe (to achieve the greatest possible toe box width), you will also need to adjust the sizing down by 1.5 to determine the comparable size in the men's version. An example:
If you normally wear a women's US size 8 shoe, you would need to order an 8.5 in the women's Xero Pacifica, and the comparable men's size in this model would be a 7.
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 #1: To create additional roominess within the shoe, we suggest removing the included (optional) shoe liner/insole; this action does not, in any way, affect the performance of the shoe.
Sizing Tip #2: 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.
