Product Description

WOW! What can I say about this upgrade?
The new style is just awesome.”
 
– Craig C.

With its new lightweight, abrasion-resistant welded upper and grippier lugged sole, the Daylite Hiker Fusion is perfect for those hikes when a technical boot is more than you need.

WHAT’S NEW ABOUT THE DAYLITE HIKER FUSION?

PROTECTION THAT FEELS JUST RIGHT.

The Daylite Hiker Fusion features a new 5.5mm FeelTrue® sole and 3.5mm lugged dual chevron tread that has been re-designed to provide even more grip and control without sacrificing the ground feel and feedback you’d expect from Xero Shoes.

IMPROVED COMFORT AND DURABILITY.

We’ve tucked our Huarache-inspired tension straps under a sleek new welded upper so you can achieve a snug fit with even more splash and abrasion-resistance. At just 12.4 ounces each for a Men’s 9, the Daylite Hiker Fusion remains the perfect hiking boot for everyday adventures.

A FRESH, UPDATED LOOK.

Available in black and a subtle, earthy brown, the new Daylite Hiker is a minimalist hiking boot that is stylish enough to pair with just about any casual or work attire, so you can wear it both on and off the trail.

WE MAKE BOOTS SO COMFORTABLE, YOU’LL FORGET THEY’RE EVEN ON.

If your feet don’t feel as good at the end of the day as they did in the beginning, you haven’t tried the Daylite Hiker Fusion.
 
Life-changing comfort and superior performance come from letting your feet do what’s natural – bend, move, flex and feel.
 
All Xero Shoes feature a wider, foot-shaped toe box that lets your toes spread and relax, a non-elevated “zero drop” heel for proper posture, low-to-the-ground design for perfect balance and agility, and a flexible sole that gives you “just right” protection so you can bend, move, flex, and safely Feel the World® in total comfort.

We know from experience that whatever we say here, people will ignore and they’ll do whatever they want in their DayLite Hiker.

After all, we know of people who run marathons in their Hana and Lena, and those are described as “casual” shoes. 😉

We designed the DayLite Hiker for the kind of journeys that most people take, most of the time — day hikes, non-technical trails, and even just walking around. While it’s not a “technical” hiker, the flexible FeelTrue® sole will let it tackle more than just a stroll. Check out the reviews to see what others are doing in their DayLite Hikers.

Like all our shoes, the DayLite Hiker has a “huarache-inspired” heel strap. You can tighten or loosen that to give a bit more (or less) support around your heel, which can hold your foot in place better.

And like the Prio, the DayLite Hiker has independently adjustable instep straps. You can tighten the laces going through those “inverted V” straps to cinch the boot around your instep. This can also help keep your foot secure. Securing your instep (but not TOO much) can actually let your toes relax even more… experiment with the tension of these straps and see what you experience.

We use “men’s” and “women’s” as a matter of convention. We know there are some men who will fit better in the “women’s” shoe, and vice versa.

The “men’s” style is a bit wider across the toes and in the heel. The women’s, conversely, has a narrower heel and slightly less-wide toe box.

If you’re a man with a very thin foot, or a women with a wide foot, you may want to try the “other” style.

Sizing, as you’ve probably experienced, is different between brands. You may wear a 9 from one company and then anything between an 8 and 10 from another company.

Luckily, if the size you get is incorrect, we do have a free exchange policy.

The Daylite Hiker runs small. We recommend choosing 1 full size larger than your usual size.

If you already have a pair of Prio, the DayLite Hiker fits similarly. If you have the Hana or Lena, you’ll probably want to go up 1/2 a size because of the difference in performance vs. casual shoes.

If you plan to wear thick socks with the DayLite Hiker, you may want to add 1/2 a size to accommodate that.
We have sizing guidelines on this page and our main sizing page but keep in mind that these are “guidelines.” People like their shoes to fit differently — some like their toes right up at the edge, others like to have 1/4″-1/2″ of extra space in front of their toes.

Using the guidelines we give, again, if you’re really close to the next 1/2 size up, we’d recommend starting with that.

Did I mention our exchange policy? 😉

It’s not waterproof because the tongue is independent of the rest of the upper, though the ballistic mesh material in the upper definitely makes this boot a little more rain-friendly than most other footwear. If you really want to keep the water at bay, check out our Xcursion — Xero’s first fully waterproof boot.

We do! We’ve sold Xero Shoes to people in more than 85 countries around the world.
We use the US Postal service to send our shipments. The cost to ship will depend on the weight of the package and the delivery speed you select; several options will be provided at checkout.

All domestic shipments come with tracking. Limited tracking is available for some first class international shipments depending on the country, and full tracking is available with all Priority Express and Express International shipments.

Though almost all of our international orders arrive without incident, we strongly advise you to select Priority Express International or Express International if you live in a country with a less reliable postal service, including (but not limited to) India, Brazil, Mexico, South Africa, and Indonesia. We cannot guarantee delivery of packages shipped using First Class International.

All packages will be marked as merchandise; as a commercial shipper, we are not able to mark a package as a gift (if you’re giving Xero Shoes as a gift, that’s not the same as us sending a gift).

Best Xero yet

These are absolutely the best designed xero to date. I did have a lace loop fail and Xero will be handling that for me. Sent me a ship label, easy. You can count on the support from Xero.

An other great Xero shoe in my collection

As with my other Xero shoes, these are incredibly comfortable and look cool and the shoe laces are the right length! The only down side is that they run a bit on the warm side. Final verdict: Xeros are the best shoes I own!

Great boots for a day hike

THE BOMB. Comfortable, well built, local to Colorado, and not as crazy expensive as some other barefoot brands. And they look great!

Substantial and sturdy

Fairly comfortable but can stand up to some rough terrain. Not as flexible as other Xero shoes I’ve had but still lighter than other brand hiking shoes.
