Wow! I hope someone picks up the product, I love Shark Tank. Good luck and good work for everyone who has gotten the barefoot movement to where it is today. Can't wait to watch the episode.

After watching steven's flick "s*it barefoot runners say" (can be found on youtube) I must say the man is
a natural born comedian and actor.
Xero shoes really deserves to be a popular bf sandals brand. They have the barefoot spirit in them: light, heartly, and flowing. And they always
Do it with an honet smile. They really LOVE what
they do for living. And that love is
Being felt over
Their sandals or anything they do.
Good luck with the show!

I agree 100% with Bob. Steven and Lena are going to rock tonight. He is 100% personality and they really know how to promote and sell their huaraches in an honest and positive way.

A lot of entrepreneurs on the show fail because they can't hold their during the inquisition by the investors. I have no doubt that Steven will shine.

Can't wait to see the show tonight.

Good luck to both of them.

I am excited for this episode to air. My wife and I regularly watch this show and it is always interesting. The fact that a product that appeals to us is going to be showcased makes it all the more enjoyable. Hopefully Avi's will get a little airtime.

I think the Sharks on Shark tank were wrong to not support Zero Shoes. I will be buying some shortly!! I liked both of the people presenting, and I LOVE the product! I'm a future buyer :)

Think they were wrong personally. I've come to love my Xero's and thinking of actually doing a mud run in May with them just for fun. That said Xero shoe's will go places. I think they'll get a big investor regardless of what happened on the show tonight.

disappointed in the outcome, i'm not surprised that the sharks didn't want in...totally oblivious

and i totally forgot they're that young of a company

that means i bought my INVISIBLE shoes 2-3 months after they started, cool!

i'll be buying another pair in the future when my other pair die, and it'll be nice to get my feet on some new stuff :P

stinks, but at least they haven't messed themselves up like some of the other people

I'm not at all surprised they didn't get a deal with the sharks. They were asking for way too much for way too little equity for a company that is still very young. It's not the sharks' fault. The owners were being too optimistic. If you want a deal on that show, you have to go in with realistic expectations and, if you've watched the series with any sort of consistency, there is no way what they were wanting was realistic.

That said, I'm glad they did go on the show. I intend to buy a pair after seeing them featured.

Too bad they did not get a deal. Hopefully they will find other means of funding their efforts so that this great business can continue selling their products.

very often people who go on the show and don't get a deal get investors from other places. That show started in Canada (called Dragon's Den) and I know a few people who went in, came out with nothing from the show and found investors that same week.

Keep in mind that the Sharks/Dragons want businesses with some maturity, experience, sales numbers and are also looking out for their own interests. They don't just throw millions of dollars at people because it's a good idea and they're nice people.

I commute via train, and all my "train buddies" know about my shoe preference. One of them apparently caught the episode and asked me if I ever watch Shark Tank. "No, maybe only once or twice". "There was this couple who was on and they had these ... sandals..." I totally knew who and what they were talking about :)

I bought the kit, and after receiving it, I do not know where I can wear such "shoes" without embarrassment. Worst of all, they do not stand behind their product and do not offer satisfaction guarantee. Now I understand why.

So don't waste your money like I did.
