Gravity styles: We recommend ordering your Gravity booties in a 1/2 size larger than the shoes/boots that you normally wear Omega styles: True-to-Size. Only order a 1/2 size-up if you are in between sizes
All of our steel-toe safety shoes feature a wide toecap for a universal fit that comfortably accommodates most women with narrow, regular, or wide feet. If you typically wear really wide sizes, you may want to consider going-up an extra 1/2 size for a more spacious fit.
We have a very accommodating free return & exchange policy to help you try on a pair of Xenas without worry! Please 🙏 just make sure to wear your new shoes at home first and avoid taking them to work until you're certain that the size and fit works well for you. Our new full-grain leather can take 3-5 days to fully break-in and mold to your foot.
Due to popular demand, both the Gravity and Omega are now available up to a size 12 with the Gravity 2.0 Black Leather model going up to size 13!

Yes! Each one of our Xena products is covered with a comprehensive 6-month Warranty. Take a look at the details on our warranty page
We are focusing on bringing you the best product directly to your door step with best customer service via our reliable digital store. This is why we aren't currently pursuing partnerships with major retailers or shoe trucks.
Instead of running seasonal sales with temporary discounts we created an always-on Xena rewards program. You can access it via a light blue popup that appears on the bottom of our homepage. It’s our way of thanking you for choosing Xena and for helping us grow!

All of our products are ASTM F2413-18 certified and OSHA compliant. They also comply with the CSA standards, but we have not sent them for official CSA certification yet.
· All models pass the industry standard ASTM F2412 testing · All models are tested for slip resistance under ASTM F2913 · All models pass the I75 / C75 impact & compression standards · Gravity SD-Rated model is certified for Electrostatic Dissipative (SD/ESD) · Omega EH-Rated model is certified for Electrical Hazard (EH)
The short answer is YES! ASTM F2412 refers to a "standard test methods for foot protection" and it outlines how a professional laboratory needs to test their shoes. So our shoes are certified at laboratories using the F2412 methods. Safety shoes that pass the tests get a F2413 certification - which our shoes are! ASNI Z41 is a retired safety standard that is very rarely referenced anymore but just in case you come across it, this article from ASTM should clear up any confusion!
Our current steel-toe shoes and boots have not been rated for Puncture Resistance. We're considering this safety feature for future product development.
Yes, all of our boots are crafted from durable, LWG-Certified, full grain leather.
We are also currently developing a synthetic vegan leather option that we plan to release this summer.
Many customers found that they can get reimbursed for Xenas after having a simple conversation with their employer. Most companies have been accommodating of these requests so don't be shy and just ask!
Absolutely, you have the following proof options:
1) The label on the inside of your Xenas will list the specific ASTM certifications of the shoe 2) We include a plastic card in the box that lists the credentials of your specific model 3) If your company requires additional proof please email us email@example.com and we'll provide the full certification report to your employer
OSHA, ASTM, and ANSI do not have heel-height restrictions for safety footwear. Your company is choosing to have these restrictions on their own.
This is a major issue that can cause inadvertent gender discrimination. How do we know? We conducted a case study and published an official white paper which identifies this double standard.
We encourage you to share our case study with your Safety Manager and HR Department. A few customers were able to modernize their official heel-height policy by following this step. Please contact us with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org or 414-367-8424
Our beautiful full-grain leather takes 3-5 days to break-in and mold to the your foot. Please 🙏 wear your new shoes at home and avoid taking them to work until you're certain that the size and fit works well
If your fit still isn't perfect or doesn't feel great right out of the box please contact us immediately at email@example.com or 414-367-8224
· Wipe your shoes with a damp cloth to remove any dirt and sediment · Apply a neutral shoe cream to maintain the luster and shine of the beautiful leather · Proper shoe cream can also waterproof your beautiful shoes and protect the leather from prolonged exposure to moisture, here's our favorite
We use LWG-certified full-grain leather to make your beautiful shoes (one of the most durable materials in footwear manufacturing). As with any shoes, you might see some scuffs after extensive use but those can be treated with shoe cream and polish so that your shoes look like new!
Our current leather is not 100% water resistant although mild exposure to water shouldn't cause any harm. To really promote the longevity of your beautiful shoes, please consider coating them with a waterproofer such as a spray or mink oil, which will protect the leather from water exposure. In the meantime, we're doing research to offer an out-of-the-box water-resistant option in 2020 that will be just as beautiful and rugged as our current styles.
Yes it is. While we love our incredibly soft, anti-microbial, friction-resistant, air-flow insole, we completely understand that you may want to customize yours. The good news is that you can absolutely do so!
--IMPORTANT-- if you wish to retain the Static Dissipative properties of your shoes, we do NOT recommend using a different insole from the one that came with your shoes!
Yes! We have many product design ideas from our followers that we plan to launch in 2020. Sign-up for our newsletter (bottom of the page) to receive our latest updates!
Yes indeed, we're definitely planning on releasing a variant of one of our styles that is made with a highly breathable, advanced new synthetic leather that only recently became available. It will be waterproof, highly durable, and of course, vegan friendly :)
Look for it later on in 2020!
Most steel-toe safety shoes and boots have a heel of over 1" to help make walking safer and more comfortable (lowers heel impact, improves stance & posture, creates a barrier against objects). We're not currently working on a design without a heel, but we will be considering this style for future development.
Yes. We're working to develop and release a Metatarsal MT-certified style in late 2020.
Unfortunately, if we use the existing shapes for the composite toe then our shoes will lose their stylish shape becoming quite bulky. We’re currently looking for an innovative partner who can help us design the first-ever elegant composite toecap that would also pass rigorous safety testing. We'll be sure to update all of our email subscribers regarding all future developments.
All Xena models feature a unique steel toecap design that feels ultra-lightweight compared to traditional safety boots. Most women can't believe that they're wearing steel-toes!
Creating a "waterproof" shoe would mean that it can be fully submerged in water without soaking the shoe's materials. Our current designs feature premium zipper closures that do not allow the models to be completely waterproof, but we do have two solutions:
- The leather of all of our current models can be treated with a waterproof spray or mink oil that will protect the leather from water exposure
- We're developing a Gravity variant with Vegan and Waterproof leather that will make the shoe water-resistant right out of the box. This style will come-out in early summer
