    • The beautiful full-grain leather of your new Xenas can take 3-5 days to break-in as the footbed settles, the leather stretches, and the shoe-padding takes on the shape of your foot
    • Please 🙏 avoid wearing your new Xenas outside or at work until you're certain that the size and fit work well for you
    • 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

    • Wipe your shoes with a damp cloth to remove any dirt and sediment
    • 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
    • Use Mink Oil to help waterproof and protect the leather from moisture

    • Consider applying a stain repellent to prolong the beautiful looks of your Suede Xenas
    • Dirt, debris, and scuffs are best removed using a suede cleaning brush
    • To get rid of darker stains, try using a regular pencil eraser
    • A suede cleaner is another great refurbishment option

    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!

    These boots are absolutely beautiful. Lightweight and high quality. Perfect “work boots” for field visits while still giving a both professional and feminine look.

    These boots are exactly what I needed!! Leggings at work? No problem you can pull them off now with the Nova’s!!! These are just perfect in every way and so comfortable! I got a regular size with a regular calf and at the start the calf was a little tight, after I wore them it loosened up. These ones are another perfect pair of Xenia’s!

    I love how these boots look, however, the ankles are very tight. I hope they stretch out after I wear them a few times. Also, my baby toe on both feet hurt, day 1. Please let me know if this is normal or if I should get a size larger.

    Stephanie, we've just reached out via email with a few sizing recommendations and follow-up questions for you. We've VERY optimistic that we'll find the absolute perfect fit if the boots you currently have aren't perfect :)
