Gravity models: We recommend ordering your Gravity booties in a 1/2 size larger than the shoes/boots that you normally wear (if you typically wear a wide size, consider sizing up 1 full size in this model)
Omega EH models: These boots are true-to-size. However, if you are in between sizes we recommending ordering the larger size (if you typically wear a wide size, consider sizing up a 1/2 size in this model)
All of our steel-toe safety shoes feature a steel toe cap for a universal fit that comfortably accommodates most women with narrow, regular, and wide feet. If you typically wear a wide size in other shoes, consider ordering 1 size larger in the Gravity and a 1/2 size larger in the Omega for a comfortable fit. Visit the size guide to see the width dimensions of our steel-toe models.
We also 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 models now go up to a size 12 with the Gravity model going up to size 13!
· All of our steel-toe models are ASTM F2413-18 certified · ASTM International (formerly American Society for Testing and Materials) establishes and independently tests the safety standards of PPE that OSHA relies on to set an objective level of PPE quality and safety. All of our safety footwear complies with OSHA standards by passing the requisite ASTM safety tests · All models pass the I75 / C75 impact & compression standards · All models are tested for slip resistance under ASTM F2913 · Our Gravity ESD model is certified for Electrostatic Dissipative (ESD / SD) · Our Omega EH models are certified for Electrical Hazard (EH)
The short answer is "yes".
ANSI Z41 is a retired safety standard that is very rarely referenced anymore but in case your employer still refers to it in their PPE policies, you should be all set! ANSI Z41 was superseded by ASTM F2413 so our shoes are compliant and if you would like to read more about this standard change, please reference this article from ASTM which has additional information.
ASTM F2412 refers to "standard test methods for foot protection" and it outlines how a professional laboratory needs to test their shoes. All of our shoes are certified at an accredited laboratory using F2412 methods. Safety shoes that pass these tests get a F2413 certification - which our shoes comply with!
Our current steel-toe shoes and boots have not been officially rated for Puncture Resistance (PR). We're considering this safety feature for future product development.
We craft our Gravity, Gravity ESD, and Omega EH models from durable, full-grain, and LWG Certified leather. It is light, breathable, and of the highest quality.
Xenas are designed, tested, inspected, and packaged in the USA. We handcraft your beautiful shoes in Mexico.

Many customers found that they can get reimbursed for Xenas after having a simple conversation with their employer. Most shoe-trucks and stores have very limited options for women and having well fitting, comfortable PPE is essential for both safety and morale.
We've heard from many women that their companies have been accommodating, allowing them to submit their Xena purchase for expense reimbursement. It never hurts to ask and if you need any assistance or documentation, we would be delighted to help!
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 at 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 Gravity, Gravity ESD, and Omega EH models are made with full-grain LWG Certified leather. We have a few recommendations for taking care of these steel-toes: · 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 also offer a Xena Shoe-Care Service through a professional cobbler (priced at cost)
We use high-performance Vegan Leather that's resistant to water and chemicals, however, dirt can still collect on the surface. To clean, simply wipe your Xenas down with a cloth using warm and soapy water. Make sure to avoid placing the shoes next to a direct heat source as the shoes are drying as this could cause material damage.
Yes! We offer a professional Xena Shoe-Care Service to help restore the stylish appearance of your Xenas that are built to last.
Our LWG Certified leather is not 100% waterproof although all shoes do offer water resistance and mild exposure to water shouldn't cause harm. To promote the longevity of your beautiful shoes we recommend to coat them with a waterproofer such as a spray or mink oil, which will protect the leather from water exposure.
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 and beyond! Sign-up for our newsletter (bottom of the page) to receive our latest updates!
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 inside of the shoe. Our current designs feature premium zipper closures that do not allow the models to be completely waterproof, but we do have two solutions:
- The full-grain Leather of our current models can be treated with a waterproof spray or mink oil that will protect the leather from water exposure - Our Omega Vegan EH Safety Boot and the Gravity Vegan Safety Shoemodels are highly resistant to water, because they are made out of waterproof vegan leather
