Daylite Hiker Women's SIZE GUIDE

We recommend ordering a half-size larger than your usual size.

Note: The Women's DayLite Hiker was previously regarded as a full size small. We changed the sizing by a half-size as of October 16th, 2019. If you had ordered a pair before that date, a half-size down with our current sizing should fit you now.
FREE EXCHANGES: Most people find our size recommendation gives them a proper fit, but just in case, we have a free exchange program for all US orders.
*If you normally buy a Euro, UK or JP Size, check out the handy conversion chart below.
NOTE: The Daylite Hiker has a wider toe box than conventional women's shoes. If your feet are particularly wide, consider the Men's Daylite Hiker. Just make sure to adjust the size by 1.5 (for example, a men's 8 is the same length as a women's 9.5).

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.

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.

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).

DayLite Hiker

I am an avid hiker and these DayLite Hikers are perfect for me. They are so light and comfortable... yet they have really good grip. The great thing is that after a long hike..my feet are not aching!

Awesome shoes!

I bought a pair for my wife and for myself, I've worn mine almost every day. I'm a contractor, so that has meant rough job site terrain. Oh, and I went hiking in them a couple times. I think they're awesome!

Excellent purchase!

Wonderful shoe! Fit a bit snug but comfortable, a half size larger would have been too big. It did not require a break in period. I just put them on and took a long hike through the woods!

Love these

Probably end up with another pair. 4 stars because they started wearing within the first month but I’m wearing these all day long.. hiking, hanging out and at work on my feet. 10 times better than coming home in pain.

My new favorite shoe

I have a wide foot with a high arch which can give me pain from time to time wearing shoes. But my new Xero shoes are like a dream. My toes can spread out and I feel myself balanced on my whole foot instead of having all the force go straight to my arch. I love these shoes! I have even been wearing them with dresses. Ha! I don’t want to take them off!

Service

A while ago, just when the COVID-19 crises began in the EU I had a very difficult situation and I exchanged many (really many) emails with Xero Shoes support service. On the other end of these emails was Samantha and thanks to her, everything went perfectly. She was professional, understanding, compassionate and efficient. The nightmare of the situation became a breeze because of her. She explained every available option and went beyond to make things happen for me. I love the Xero Shoes! With this kind of product and equally great customer service there is nothing else to say than kudos and BIG THANK YOU! I will remain a faithful customer.

Great!

Lower back felt a little less stressed-and I've been wearing low heeled stuff for centuries! 🙂 Like wearing a really good and solid wee moccasin. The sole is not impervious to our really bad "chico bush" stickers out here-but handles gravel and other stuff with ease and comfort. I've recommended it to my friends who have bunions and hammer toes too!
