    • If your feet are feeling comfortably snug then you have a good fit. If you are experiencing uncomfortable tightness after trying them on at home for a bit then we recommend initiating an exchange for a 1/2 size larger

    • Avoid placing your shoes next to a direct heat source as they dry to avoid material damage
    • Apply a neutral Shoe Cream to maintain the luster and shine of the full-grain leather

    First off, I am so happy I found Xena and can now feel fashionable, professional, and safe at work. I bought these to stay warm on long walks between buildings at our plant. These boots are absolutely beautiful, no one I work with will believe they are steel toed. It took me a few days to break them in, because they have a good fit and are high quality. So be prepared, I agree with the recommend to wear them around the house first. The calf on these is very tight. I’m pretty sure I have regular size calves (13”) and I have never had an issue with a boot fitting, but these just barely zipped up. Xena is working on an extended calf size, so definitely wait for those if this will be an issue for you. The design of this boot is very similar to the Omega, so I ordered my normal 7.5 in both and they fit perfectly. Be ready for some big complements!

    I have been working in Funeral Service for over 5 years. I needed a functional but comfortable shoe to get me through the long hours I work on my feet. These are my go to work boot! They help keep my feet safe and warm. And they also offer protection when I am working with hazardous chemicals. They are complimented by my coworkers and friends. I love how fashionable they appear. I wear them with pant suits and with dresses and skirts. I have a narrow calf and they fit me fine, even with thicker socks. But I agree with other reviews, size up and go for the wide calf option if you have anything other than a skinny calf. Thank you Xena for creating something for us hard working women!

    This is my 3rd paid of boots from Xena . I’m a 6.5 but in Xena , I wear a size 7. The regular fit works great for me, they are warm and breathable , very comfy ! Look great too. I was concerned with all the different reviews that they might not fit my calf but I’m 5’6 Curvy Athletic build and they work great ! I’ll have all their shoes more than likely by the end of the year at least another color in these as well . Having to wear steel toes everyday , these make me forget I’m even wearing them! Also flashing the compliance card when I get questioned about my shoes on the job site is pretty nice.

    Gorgeous boots! After reading the reviews of others, I opted to get the "regular" calf size, and as instructed, went a half size up. Unfortunately, the regular calf size was huge, and I have never purchased boots in a narrow calf in my life. I'm pretty small, but my legs are all around more muscular. I emailed Xena and they immediately got back to me with a link to exchange. The narrow calf size feels snug on the inside where you zip it up, and roomy on the outside, but they look great, and are very comfortable. The leather is excellent quality and after wearing for one night out I had no issues wearing all day at work that week. Definitely recommend wearing around the house and letting the leather stretch to fit you first. Overall, I am very happy with this company and will absolutely purchase from them again!

    Amazing and super comfortable shoes. I got the regular size and regular calf. I went up a size as instructed. Very light compared to other shoes used in the field. Also I love they are riding boots because it reduces the amount of particles in my shoes.
