Product Description

“These boots are AMAZING! I find myself wearing them all the time when I need closed
toe shoes even when I’m not hiking.”  – Kate

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 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.

A CHIC, UPDATED AESTHETIC.

Available in black and a new subtle purple color, the new Daylite Hiker is a minimalist hiking boot that is stylish enough to pair with leggings, jeans, or khakis 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.

Comfy and lightweight

But sturdy. I ordered these in a size 8 (usually a size 7.5/8), and had to exchange them for an 8.5. When I first put the 8.5 on, I thought they were too small AGAIN, but I walked around my house a bit and they fit perfectly. I've only gone on one hike so far, but my feet (and the rest of me) felt great during and after.

Love the color but there is a break-in process

These shoes are very comfortable! The color is so great. But they do rub on my heels and I've had to wear something on them to keep them from getting raw. Hopefully that goes away soon with more use. Otherwise I love the way they look on and my toes have lots of room!

So comfortable!!

I was skeptical about these shoes and how they would hold up. I took them all over the NC500 with me in Scotland and they were so comfy and kept my feet in good condition. They are definitely waterproof. I stepped in deep water and thought my feet were soaked, but they weren’t and only felt the coldness from the water. Socks were still dry and my feet were not left hurting after walking so many miles those 6 days! I will definitely be purchasing more shoes from Xero!

Integrity

I am so happy I found Xero Shoes! I have worn the Daylight Hiker everyday this past spring and summer for work: 8 hours on my feet doing various tasks at an organic produce farm. The shoes support my feet and body so well! Since wearing them I've never come after a long day of work with sore feet. And when I contacted the company because the sole started to come away from one of the shoes, I found that the integrity of the company extends beyond their products, and into their policies and staff members. I discovered the shoes are covered under an excellent warranty! Amber, a very kind, patient and skillful employee, helped me through the process of obtaining a new and free (!) replacement pair. I am grateful and delighted with Xero Shoes; I will continue to buy their products, and recommend Xero Shoes to anyone who ever mentions shoes or feet or possibly nothing to me! Thank you!

Does everything they say

Comfortable, and they leave my feet dry even after spraying with the hose, while I'm wearing them. They are nice and protective, while being a more than decent minimalist shoe. That said, there's not so much play in the shoe that if you like to push down with your toes, and propel, these will allow you to do so in barefoot-like comfort. These sacrifice a bit of the foot movement for protection. That said, I'll have no qualms taking these into snow, or rain, or moderate mud paired with gaiters. They are sturdy, and by far the best of my shoes for thermal regulation, cold or warm, without being purpose built for extremes in either.The lug shape really picks up debris, but the entire shoe is easy to clean by spraying down. I haven't tested the washability of the mesh with a muddy dunking yet, so that remains an unaccounted for variable. Still, these seem excellent for my four season purposes and the ever repetitive chore of watering the yard. It's hard to cater to the barefoot minimalist crowd and check all the conventional boxes of special features, but I think this company is hands down, the best at delivering such products. Vivobarefoot, or Vibram fivefingers, have caught either my imagination and admiration, or my patronage as I've tried to outfit my wardrobe with the fewest shoes possible to cover the most circumstances, and I think when it comes to the practical, utilitarian little details, they both fall behind Xero Shoes. Somehow, I don't find myself facing fall and worrying the shoes I'll be relying on will mold in the toe box if they don't get dried religiously, or that a bit of of inner shoe will be rubbing a blister into being just as I pass the mile of no return, or that the uppers will be peeling away from the sole of a very expensive pair of shoes within the year. I'm the kind of person who can mark eras of my life by the shoes I've worn. As a kid, I wore shoes until I outgrew them, and I usually wore one pair of shoes for years at a time, when I wasn't barefoot. The whole notion of a practical wardrobe for occasions, or seasons? Yeah... flexible- extremely whimsical, but committing to minimalist footwear was something deeper. It was like standing up or taking a deep breath for the first time, and telling myself I was never going back to stooping or shallow breathing ever again. It turns out, you need partners to support a grand goal like that, especially when faced with the ever present practicalities of society and nature. You do what you can. You live in bright blue shoes... You become grateful for every bit of cooperative boldness that helps you meet your own goals, and then you meet out in the world people who work the problem, like you can only imagine doing in your wildest dreams! Thank you Xero Shoes!

LOVE these hiking boots!

The Daylite Hiker Fusion are the perfect hiking boot. I find standard hiking boots too heavy and tight. These are so light, it makes hiking much more comfortable. I love that they are water resistant, which keeps my feet dry from the morning dew.Lots of toe room and just an all around great boot. Thanks Xero Shoes!

Great hiking shoe

A huge improvement over the old DayLite hiker, primarily on the tread design. The tread is quite knobby, which is great when on sandy/gravely trails. The barefoot feel is definitely there, but without it hurting to walk on gravel/rocky terrain; I can feel all the rocks, but the sharp ones don't hurt. The one downside to these is that the heel cup is a pretty rigid (compared to the rest of the shoe, which is very flexible) and curves forward a bit. That curve means that, for my foot, it rubs on my achilles. I find that I can't fully tighten them if I try to wear them casually without it hurting after a few hours. However, when I'm actually hiking around, I don't really feel anything with them at all.
