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.

NEW Men's Lightweight Hiking Boot for 2021 - DayLite Hiker Fusion by Xero Shoes

WHAT’S NEW ABOUT THE DAYLITE HIKER FUSION?

PROTECTION THAT FEELS JUST RIGHT.

The Daylite Hiker Fusion features a new 10mm FeelTrue® sole that includes a 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.

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.

Category: DLH

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.

Category: DLH

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.

Category: DLH

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.

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.

International delivery can take anywhere from 3 days to 8 weeks depending on how long your order spends in customs at the border.

Please note that some countries do require the payment of import duties for international shipments above a certain value. We advise you to know the import regulations of your country and understand that you will be responsible for payment of any duties and fees imposed by your government at the border.

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).
Also, check our Stores page. There may be a Xero Shoes dealer closer to you.

Comfortable Work Boot

Great design and color combination for a work boot. Very comfortable given the hallmark properties of toe splaying and feel for the ground. The only deficiency would be that the rectangular side pieces of the side webbing by the toes is starting to peal up around the bending areas. These pieces seem non-structural and could probably come off with time without effecting the boot's integrity. Otherwise all around the boot deserves a 5-star rating.

great shoe but

I bought these as my work shoes around the house. Shoes I was wearing (so-called work shoes) where killing my feet; at the end of a day of DIY around the house my feet were in pain. So I got these. I did not give it five stars because I need it to be water proof to be perfect. but per XERO design it is performing.

Fantastic Shoe

This is really a great deal at all shoe! I’m a healthcare professional and it looks great at work, it’s also casual enough for me to just knock around in, and I work out on it as well. I can’t think of too many other shoes that actually do this and have a zero with soul and are made at this level of quality. It would be absolutely amazing in Leather.

Daylight hiker

Great shoes, extremely comfortable with high quality material that seems like it will last a long time. Very light which is a needed fix was most hiking shoes.

Fit Nice But

I thought these shoes were comfortable however was disappointed to learn that they are not waterproof. I know there are other waterproof boots but they do not fit as comfortable as the Daylite Hiker.

Weight loss

Bought these for a friend I work with who’s been complaining about back pain. Since switching to barefoot shoes daily he’s lost over 20 lbs in about 3 months. Amazing what happens as the body balances itself when it’s connected to the rest of the world fully!

Love My Xeros!

I've had my Xero shoes for about 2 months now and I could not be happier! I was concerned about buying shoes on the internet because my size can vary depending on the brand I buy. For instance if I buy Nike, I have to get the next size up. So buying online was a bit nerve racking for me. But they came and fit perfectly! I love the wider toe box and the weight of the shoes is great! The only concern I have is that my Prio shoes have little traction if there is a slippery spot. We were at a restaurant the other night and the floor was a greasy and I about slipped and I've experienced it on other slippery surfaces too. But other than that I love them! My Daylight Fusions are great for all surfaces and fit so well. I've tried them on various surfaces and they work great on all of them. No slipping with the Fusions! Overall, I love my Xeros! I'm even considering getting a pair of Denvers for the winter!

I'm Impressed.

The product is working out great! I am grateful to have been given these shoes because my old ones did not last and Zero Shoes kept their word on shoes not lasting. I will be buying from them again soon!!!

Super comfortable!

When I go back to regular shoes, then switch back to these, I really notice how much more comfortable to wide toe-box and flexible sole really is. I plan on wearing these for a long time.
