Product Description

“The do-it-all mountain shoe I’ve always wished for. It’s tough, surprisingly lightweight, and the grip is insane!” – Matt G.

THE WORLD’S LIGHTEST TECHNICAL HIKING BOOT

Ever have that feeling at the end of a hike where you can’t wait to kick off your heavy, stiff boots?

You’ll never feel that again when you wear the Scrambler Mid, perhaps the lightest and most comfortable technical hiking boot ever made!

Scramble up trails like a mountain goat in this shoe! At just 11.3 oz. per shoe (M9), a pair of the Scrambler Mid weighs less than just one single boot from most other companies.

LIKE WEARING MOUNTAIN BIKE TIRES ON YOUR FEET

Scrambler Mid is a collaboration with Michelin, the car and bike tire company.

If you could see inside the thin Michelin fiberlite sole, you’d find an embedded textile layer, giving the sole unparalleled strength, flexibility and lightness.

Plus, with mud-shedding lugs inspired by Michelin’s high-performance mountain bike tires, you feel the confidence that comes with incredible grip.

Although the Scrambler Mid uses Michelin soles, it’s still covered under our 5,000 mile sole warranty.

EXTRA PROTECTION WITH AN “ILLUSION”

You may look at the Scrambler Mid and think it has a thick sole and that Xero Shoes has strayed from our mission.

Far from it.

Above the fiberlite is a thin layer of our TrailFoam™, which gives you extra comfort and protection when you’re on a tough trail.

Normally we hide this layer in our hiking products’ soles. But the Scrambler Mid wraps both sole layers up around the upper, giving an illusion of thickness. This eye-catching look inspires conversations with other hikers that start with, “Where do I get those?”

TOUGH FROM TOE TO HEEL

Enjoy the protection you get with the Scrambler Mid’s abrasion-resistant, vegan-friendly, breathable upper, and welded sidewalls and two-layer toe cap.

And when the elements give you an extra challenge, attach your favorite gaiter to the included hook and tackle the next peak.

A “RUNNING BOOT?”

With this incredible combination of lightness, flexibility, grip, protection, and comfort, the Scrambler Mid can outperform many trail running shoes.

Whether you put that idea to the test, or take it for a day trip, or a month-long thru-hike, the Scrambler Mid is your perfect companion to Live Life Feet First.

WE MAKE HIKING 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 Scrambler Mid. 

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 Live Life Feet First!

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.

After you purchase a gift certificate, you’ll be able to enter an email address for the recipient.

You could email it to yourself and forward it at a later time if you like.

You can also take the Gift Certificate code and send it to the recipient.

Caring for your Xero Shoes

To clean your Xero Shoes, hand wash with warm water, mild soap and allow them to air dry. We do not recommend putting them in the washing machine or dryer.

Nice blend!

I have hiked with the Scrambler Mid now, several times, across steep and rocky/broken terrain, in anticipation of upcoming exploring in the desert southwest. Having worn barefoot shoes for years now, I have some sense of what is appropriate for my personal comfort - some are simply too thin for this kind of trekking, others are too insular. I have been impressed at the balance of sole padding built into these shoes. Originally they felt pretty insulated from the ground, but with even a few hikes, I can comfortably hike some of the most rugged and stony ground with a feeling for what is underfoot, yet without needing to “tenderfoot” my way. In addition, they are Very comfortable out of the box, quite adjustable for different socks, for descent vs strolling and climbing, etc. And, they seem durable. The soles are quite sticky, lending a pleasant sense of confidence as well. Glad to give these a 5-star rating, and offer my thanks to Xero shoes for continuing to refine the foot-ware experience.

Good for a few months, then just OK

The shoe delivered well in comfort, being lightweight, and protecting my feet. They're impossible to get a bad foot stench out of though, even when repeatedly following the recommended cleaning listed on the website. MOST IMPORTANTLY, for the price I paid, they did not even come close to lasting. I went on a week backpacking trip over average terrain (AT), and wore them regularly for about 7 months. By month two, the mesh had started to fray, and has been developing more and more holes ever since, and not from anything easily explained like kicking a really pointy rock. For $169, they just don't last. For comparison, my $50 Whitin's have seen more use and lasted many months longer with comparable wear. They are a tiny bit narrow around the ball of my foot, is there a way to fix that before buying in the future? Also, maybe I didn't notice in the product description, but I didn't realize until I got them that they're not water resistant at all. They dry fairly quickly and breathe well, so it's not the end of the world. Overall, the shoes are great, but I can't afford to be paying this kind of money for new ones every year or even sooner.
