Welcome, to my Xero Shoes Reviews of the Amuri Cloud and The Jessie. Both barefoot style minimal shoes.
I bought my first pair of Xero Shoes Amuri Cloud sandals over 2 1/2 years ago for a trip back home to the U.S. I ordered them in Australia before my trip and had them shipped to my family’s house where they were waiting for me.
I still have those sandals. I show them in this video so you can see how they have withstood nearly constant use in the warm sunny climate of Perth, Western Australia. Yes, they are still usable, although not very pretty!
This video also reviews a brand new pair of the Amuri Cloud and the Jessie Sandal. I needed a new pair of Amuri Clouds for nicer occasions and, while I was at it, I bought the Jessie for those occasional dressier events. (Hint; I’m not a standard dress shoe kind of person.)
I get a small commission from sales via this link at no additional cost to the purchaser. It helps to support my efforts at bringing quality fitness and wellness tips and coaching to my tribe. Thank you.
I’d like to say that I loved my first pair Amuri Clouds instantly.
I loved the idea of my new barefoot sandals and was super excited to give them a go. Sadly, when I tried them on and went for my first walk I didn’t think they were going to work.
My feet weren’t used to wearing shoes with a post between the toes and it hurt. But, it was summertime in the U.S. and I needed sandals. Tennis shoes were too hot and I am morally opposed to flip flops, so I stuck with my new barefoot sandals. Fortunately, I discovered it was only uncomfortable when I walked on pavement and not when I walked on grass. So, I avoided pavement as much as possible. My toes adapted to the change and the discomfort went away after a couple of days. It has never been a problem since.
Watch the video to see my reviews of my new Xero Sandals. Barefoot sandals are a perfect match for an Australian summer and Xero Shoes ships internationally. Mine took 3 weeks to arrive.
If you are in the northern hemisphere, it is never too early to plan for Spring! Just a hint, Xero Shoes also has a range of covered minimal shoes for town and trail. You can check out some winter friendly shoes in my review of the DayLite Hiker in the snow.
