Product Description

NOTE — The styles on this page are on clearance because we’ve released the improved DayLite Hiker EV.

Most hikes don’t need a big, heavy, technical hiking boot.

And most hiking boots don’t let your foot bend, move, flex and feel the world… until the DayLite Hiker

Perfect for day hikes and casual wear, the DayLite Hiker is built with our foot-first design and natural movement philosophy.

  1. Natural FIT – Wide, anatomically correct toe boxes let your toes spread and relax, plus a non-elevated, “zero-drop” heel for proper posture.
  2. Natural MOTION – Your feet are supposed to bend and flex and move. The DayLite Hiker is super flexible to let them do that. The low-to-the-ground design is perfect for balance and agility.
  3. Natural FEEL – Your feet are supposed to FEEL the world. Our patented FeelTrue® soles give you just-right protection while also giving you the ground feedback that your brain and body want.
  4. Lightweight – You don’t want your footwear to weigh you down
  5. 5,000-mile sole warranty

More reasons you’ll love the DayLite Hiker

  • Great protection with a ballistic mesh upper and Tough Tech toe bumper
  • LIGHT — Only 10.2 ounces (each) for a Men’s Size 9
  • Huarache-inspired heel strap to hold your foot securely
  • Adjustable instep straps for perfect tension
  • Dual-chevron tread for great grip
  • Thin and flexible 6mm FeelTrue® sole
  • Removable sockliner (insole) if you want a more barefoot feeling
  • Vegan-friendly materials

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.

Caring for your Daylite Hikers

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

Great hiking boots! Love that

Great hiking boots! Love that the toes are protected. Take your time to get the technique right before going all excited on a hike the very first day. No break in needed.

Very hopeful!

Our two pair of men’s DayLite Hikers, which we purchased for winter weather, look very promising! I have tried on both pair, seems like a good fit. Tom hasn’t tried them on yet and we haven’t worn them yet, still waiting for cooler weather. We both got the men’s version since my size wasn’t available in women’s version.

They do run very small

I was very excited on recieving these shoes. As they mention they run small I ordered 1 full size bigger than my clouds sandals (which are perfect fit). Unfortunately the hikers are still too small, my big toe is crammed, so I'd recommend going 2 if not 3 size bigger than your regular size. Other than that they are very roomy to spread the toes (which is great), I'm not able to provide any more feedback as I won't be able to test them out.

Breaking them in

I also bought some vivo barefoot hikers. I like those a bit better only because the sole of the shoe gives a lot for more barefoot feel. Also the soles of these are slippery. I almost bit the dust on a wet floor in a restaurant. I’m hoping as I wear them in both issues will resolve because I really like them.

DayLite hiker

I really was impressed at the quality of the material and the craftsmanship. I’d have liked the toe box to be even wider, but my foot fits snug in a 4E width, so that was to be expected. They are not narrow by any means, I just have quite wide feet. They feel like they’ll last quite well.

Very good minimalist hiker, not so water resistant

I'm an only-minimalist shoe wearer, and so these are truly the only hikers available that I've found, and for a reasonable price. Love the light weight, flexibility, and good styling. They are my winter shoes too, although I live tropical now so just visit the cold places for a couple weeks a year. I bought them quite big, and bought a men's even though I'm female with petite feet. It's just worth it to have all the room to move inside, and the body/nervous system adjusts rapidly so there's no tripping. In fact, more space inside means warmer feet (air insulation) and so I usually don't wear socks. That said, they are not proving to be water resistant. In anything more than a faint drizzle, there's a seepage along the sole. I did use them in snow blizzard conditions with available shelter (a glacier boat), and with plastic bags outside my socks inside the shoe, they got me through. If you all (Xero) achieve a water-resistant or even water proof flexible hiker, you will be royalty!
