Empower Women To Step Into Any Role With Confidence

Ana Kraft Founder & CEO

"Working as a project engineer I was frustrated by the lack of professional work boot options that were available to women. My steel-toe shoes were really bulky, clearly designed for men who have anatomically different feet.

So I decided to develop work boots to help women feel safe and confident. Safety doesn't have to compromise. Fashion can work."

Safety Footwear

The Xena Difference

Women are both strong AND beautiful. They deserve work boots that don't compromise. We make Xenas to address real pain points that help women step into any role with confidence.

Each model is built around a women's shoe last that goes through extensive fit testing for comfort and stability. Women's feet have key anatomical differences that must be accounted for. They have more curvature, smaller instep circumference, higher arch, and a shallower first toe than men.

When the last is finalized, we push the boundaries of design by molding innovative safety features around a stunning form. Finished prototypes are sent to independent ASTM labs for rigorous safety testing. After a prototype is officially certified by ASTM, it can go into production.

Xenas are handcrafted using the highest quality materials like our unique YKK zippers and LWG certified leather from a Gold rated tannery. Then our team in Wisconsin carefully packages each order and ships them around the world.
