We recently got chance to try some Xero Barefoot Running Sandals and discovered two things: they look way pretty and you make them yourself! As we’ve never had handmade shoes before, we figured it had to be worth checking out. You can see from the video just how easy they are to make and they’re really comfortable. When Bibi took hers to Croatia she discovered that they’re the perfect sandals for swimming in the sea – no scratchy pebbles or sea urchins underfoot and they stay firmly on your feet but you can’t feel them. Sea swimming result!
Some people wear them for running – we don’t think our gait analysis would allow that – but they’re definitely a comfy, cool, conversation starter for summertime hanging.

I’ve seen sandals like that before on a barefoot runner. Too extreme for me! That said, I bet they’d be ace for the beach…

Bibi said they were fantastic on the beach. All I need now is a holiday to test them properly… 🙂
This is fantastic! You two were born for the screen! Also I have to mention that Jayne your bob is super super cute and I love bibi’s braid! I don’t run and am desperate for a pair of these. So impressed with Bibi’s hammer wielding as well. Xoxo
