Good Morning Nick, I'm in Xeroshoes for the last 3 months and its been a life-changing experience for me. Sometimes I wish I could "tweak" the Xeroshoe....so long story short I just read your post and saw "Did 2.5miles in my homemade sandals" please tell me more about this? Got any photo's? I got myself a factory that's willing to make me leather Xeroshoes if I just send them a sample (which is a bit difficult, since I only have one pair)..would love to hear from you/see your shoes, if you don't mind? Have a great day.
