A Faux-Wool House Slipper With a Collapsible Heel
The Xero Pagosa is a faux-wool house slipper with a collapsible heel that also works well as a comfortable casual shoe. Thanks to its clever design, you can wear the Pagosa in two ways: Step on the heel and wear it like a slide, or slip your foot in and wear it like a regular shoe. You can also use this lightweight slipper-shoe for a variety of purposes, including activities around the house, running errands, leisurely strolls around the neighborhood, camping trips, and much more.
Low Stack Height, Zero-Drop Sole, Wide Toe Box
The accommodating and cool-weather-friendly Xero Pagosa incorporates a vegan faux-wool upper and a 4.0 mm FeelTrue rubber outsole. The relatively thin sole and low stack height of this foot-healthy minimalist shoe offer you a great combination of sole protection and ground feel and help you build a stronger foot with each and every footfall. With its zero-drop platform and ample toe box, the Pagosa encourages optimal foot form and function while promoting a more natural gait.
Easy-On, Easy-Off, Works With Other Helpful Footgear
You can wear the easy-on, easy-off Xero Pagosa in so many scenarios and with so many outfits, making it a truly versatile, go-to footwear option. Another advantage of the Xero Pagosa is that you can use it in combination with other natural footgear for synergistic foot health benefits. Indeed, this slipper-shoe pairs nicely with Correct Toes, Injinji toe socks, Pedag metatarsal pads, and Naboso insoles. Each Xero Pagosa shoe weighs about 6.0 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 Pagosa shoes, the manufacturer recommends that you order 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), simply adjust the sizing down by 1.5 to determine the comparable size in the men's version. For example, if you normally wear a women's US size 8 shoe, consider ordering a 6.5 in the men's Xero Pagosa instead.
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. Optionally, and to enhance balance, posture, agility, and general foot/body awareness, you might consider adding thin, flexible Naboso insoles instead.
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.
