Product Description

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

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

And most hiking boots don’t let your foot bend, move, flex and feel the world… that is, not 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. Light Weight – 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 9 ounces (each) for a Women’s Size 7
  • 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 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.

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.

My Discovery of Xero Shoes

Love love love Xero shoes! I have bought several now (work, walking, winter) - every one of them has been absolutely amazing to wear! I have wide feet and trouble finding comfortable shoes that actually fit AND are high quality - Xero shoes is it!

What a comfortable everyday shoe disguised as a hiking shoe/boot, no socks necessary, very important side note: no inside rubbing or uncomfortableness when going sock free!

don't wait too long

This was the 1st pair of Xero Shoes that I tried. I wish I had bought the correct size because when I tried to exchange, the size I needed was sold out in the color I wanted. They were so light weight & flexible. I love the look of the shoes! Apparently so did a lot of other people. My advice, don't wait too long to order the shoes you want (& try to order the correct size) or you might miss out.

Fantastic Boots, Fantastic Service

I had originally gotten the wrong size and was about to send them back when my mom tried them on. She loved them so much she decided to keep them. With the fantastic customer service I was able to find the right size (the recent sizing updates had been confusing me). The new ones arrived quickly. The moment I put them on I didnt want to take them off. They are so lightweight and comfortable, almost like socks. I've been wearing them in the snow and its awesome to feel the snow crunch beneath my feet. They provide just enough sole to feel the ground while protecting you from sharp rocks and rough surfaces. The wide toe box is amazing and allows my toes to splay as they should. Only thing I would change: Most boots have open hooks at the top to hook the laces but these are closed. It is hard to get the shoes on and off quickly without loosening all the laces. Not a huge problem, as they are so comfy there is little reason to take them off often. Not sure if they could stay dry standing in a puddle, but I spilled a cup of water on them and they remained waterproof for that, and dried quickly thereafter. I definitely recommend, and will keep getting zeros for a long time!

Cute, comfy & versatile

I got these shoes in black. I love how I can pair them with jeans, shorts or leggings during my regular daily activities, AND I can count on these shoes to give my feet just the right amount of support/padding so that I can go for hikes on trails and hills and still feel the earth beneath my feet. https://xeroshoes.com/go/SarahK GIVE THESE SHOES A TRY!

The shoes look great and feel nice and roomy. However, there is a slight discomfort at the top when the shoes bend while walking. I hope it goes away soon after I use them more.
