Lightweight, breathable mesh upper, tire tread-inspired sole, a silky moisture-wicking lining made with high tech 37.5 material, protected tension straps… put all of that together for your new favorite road running shoe, the HFS.
What does HFS stand for?
Highly Flexible Sole? Happy Feet Shoe? High Frequency Stride?
There are as many possible answers as there are things you’ll do in the HFS.
The HFS is the Goldilocks of the Xero Shoes athletic models. It has more ground-feel than the Prio, and is more cushiony and forgiving than the Speed Force. We generally recommend a very forgiving shoe for your transition to minimal shoes but many of our customers prefer the sleek look of the HFS and find them suitable for their transition.
Why you’ll love the HFS
Natural FIT — a wide toe box lets your toes spread, splay, relax, and function naturally.
Natural MOTION — the HFS is flexible enough to let your feet bend, move, and flex the way, well, that feet aresupposedto. The “XERO-drop” design (non-elevated heel) allows for natural alignment, and it’s built low to the ground for balance and agility.
Natural FEEL — the HFS has a 5.5mm FeelTrue® rubber sole to give you the right combination of protection plus ground-feedback, so your brain knows how to move your body optimally. Also, you can remove the 2mm insole, for a closer-to-barefoot experience that lets you Feel The World®.
Light weight — so light, in fact, you could forget you have them on. A men’s 9 is about 6.8 ounces (each).
Huarache-inspired design — the adjustable instep and midfoot tensioning straps are not just eye-catching but functional, automatically giving you a secure and comfortable fit.
Vegan-friendly materials — No animal products are used in the HFS
5,000 mile sole warranty — like all Xero Shoes, the HFS is backed with a 24 month manufacturer’s warranty and a 5,000 mile sole warranty.
Fit Guide: The HFS fits slightly smaller than the Prio. Go half a size up from your "standard size" or a full size up for the roomiest fit. They do not stretch out at all.
The HSF comes in men's and women's sizes. Email us if you have any questions about sizing!
