    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 but if you are experiencing uncomfortable tightness after first putting them on 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

    Your shoes are built to last and we can help to restore the stylish appearance of even heavily worn Xenas by taking them to our fountain of youth. We've partnered with a professional U.S. cobbler to give you access to our Xena Shoe-Care Service

    We believe in providing you with the best customer service which includes worry-free exchanges and returns within a 30-day window after delivery. Please only wear your new Xenas at home to break them-in. Unfortunately, our small team cannot salvage used booties with scuffs or dirty outsoles 😔. To initiate your exchange or return please navigate to our simple Exchange and Return Portal

    These boots, like all Xena products, are made from high-quality materials and they look incredible. Unfortunately, this style is very tight in the calves. The description does say that these are best for narrow calves, but since I have never had to purchase any other boot in a wide-calf option, I thought I would be okay. Definitely wait for the wide calf option to be released unless you have very slender legs. I will be jealous of my slender legged friends who can wear these gorgeous boots while I await the wide calf option!

    Thank you for the kind words, Savannah and we're so sorry to hear that the calf width wasn't a good fit for you! We're very optimistic that the upcoming wider release should fit great :)

    Let's start by saying the packaging was amazing. They are definitely a stylish, sleek boot and I love the riding boot length. They do tend to run small so size up when ordering. I wore mine around the house the first week to break in and today was my first 10 hours on the job. I'm impressed with comfort and fit other than some slight ankle stiffness and rubbing, but I look forward to breaking them in further

    I am in love with my boots, but if you want me to be honest my legs are small and feet are skinny I am sure My XENA friend are going to have issues to zip it up ! ! But for me are perfect

    I sized up by 1/2 and I’m glad I did - they are very comfortable in length and width. They were tough to zip up, though, so I wore them around at home for the weekend, and that helped a lot. I wore them to work everyday this week. The first few days they rubbed on the backs of my ankles and I was really worried about it. But by the end of the week they broke in nicely. I tucked the certification card in the top of my right boot, in case I was questioned about them. I got compliments from several people and got to spread the word about Xena! I can’t stop smiling about them - they are absolutely gorgeous!

    I am in love! I have searched for so long! Thank you. They are made for small to medium calves! But it worked!

    These are beautiful leather boots! I got the chestnut brown, and they are a rich, deep brown color. They appear very well constructed and made to last. They have heavy duty sole on the bottom so should be perfect for all types of environment. They also have a nice lining inside the boot for comfort. I would definitely follow the suggestion for a half size up! I am on the larger end of the calf sizing and these do fit. However, they will be mostly worn with dresses or leggings/long tops at work. Jean material is a little too think for me to tuck into these.
