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).

DayLite Hiker – Women (clearance)

Your favorite boot for your favorite trails and journeys

We recommend ordering a half-size larger than your usual size. If you are typically a size 9, a size 9.5 should be a better fit.

Note: We resized the Clearance DayLite Hikers on October 16th, 2019. If this style used to fit you previously, order a half-size smaller instead.

This product is currently out of stock and unavailable.

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.

Daylite hiker

DayLITE hiker is a great name. The shoes fit like gloves. I love them. The shoe feels almost like you have just a support on. The ankle is snug but not tight, the heal is sturdy from the ankle to the sole. The sole is so flexible, durable and comfortable that the foot just feels like it's wearing nothing, (Xero!) Only better. Not tight anywhere. The arch strap that is on every pair is brilliant.

Smallest size great for kids!

I bought these on sale for my 9 and 7 year old daughters. Both usually wear a size 3 youth (in other brands) but the size 5 in women's fit them both! Great boots...I'll probably buy the next size up, while they are on sale!

Love these shoes

Love love love these hiking boots. My feet have the room they need to move properly and be comfortable. I love the feeling of barefoot shoes and I don’t think I will ever go back to bulky stif mainstream shoes.

Absolutely love them!

I'm not athletic at all. I spend all of my time in my home, and normally wore Crocs every day...until I got these. I was a bit concerned that my feet would hurt from barefoot shoes, but they're so comfortable that I have switched to wearing these every day. I don't even mind having to tie them, and haven't experienced any foot pain at all! Also, I got the purple ones and they're so darn cute! I absolutely love them!

If you can help me, you can help anyone.

I ordered my first pair of Xero shoes June 3rd of 2020. June 6th I tripped and fell managing yet another set of orthopedic operations. I wasn't allowed to try walking with a walker until 2 weeks ago. My physical therapist suggested I wait a week before trying out such a revolutionary shoe. I started wearing them 2 days ago and I love them. It gives me more balance and fits the shape of my foot wonderfully. As a diabetic with neuropathy this is Very important. Sores and blisters can lead to amputations. I just wanted you to know why I have been so long in reviewing my shoes. I love them. Auntie Jane

NOT what expected

Why are these called zero shoes? Actually the hardest construction of any shoes I’ve tried. Didn’t care for the 9.99 return fee either. Not a fan wont be ordering again.
