Since many of us wear shoes that are the wrong size, you select your Xero Shoes kit based on the length of your foot.
The best way measure your foot length is this: place a piece of paper (newspaper if you have big feet) against a wall, stand on the paper with your heel lightly touching the wall, make a mark in line with the front of your foot (your first or second toe), and then measure the distance from the edge of the paper to that mark. Do not simply step on a ruler to measure since the angle that you'll be looking at rarely gives an accurate measurement.

With the help of one of the world's top outsole manufacturers, and former lead designers from Nike and Reebok, Xero Shoes started with the best qualities of the famous Vibram Cherry material and made these improvements:
Contoured to fit your foot, without providing unnecessary support
Long-lasting high-abrasion material
Very flexible (great barefoot feel)
Holds its shape
Slight "toe spring" keeps sole closer to your foot
Sized from 7" to 14" -- many people can use the outsole without trimming (less waste if you do)
Elegant shape with subtle arch and heel cup
Easily customized with a pair of kitchen scissors
Topsole pattern provides traction but feels soft
Reinforced, extended, and elevated ankle holes keep lace from wearing out
Dual-chevron tread pattern provides great traction
