Product Description

You’ll practically fly over your next trail when you’re wearing the Mesa Trail.

We made the Mesa Trail with lightweight, barefoot-friendly, minimalist running in mind. But we know you’ll wear it off-trail too.

You’ll look great when you pair the Mesa Trail with your favorite jeans, and is comfortable enough for all-day wear.

The breathable, mesh upper gets rid of the weight and keeps you cool. The moisture-wicking lining helps keep you dry. The welded protective covering of the adjustable midfoot and instep straps adds durability. The lugged, dual-chevron tread gives you sure-footed traction. And the “hidden” 3mm TrailFoam™ layer adds the right amount of protection and comfort.

Why you’ll love the Mesa Trail

  • Natural FIT — a wide toe box lets your toes spread, splay, relax, and function naturally.
  • Natural MOTION — the Mesa Trail is flexible enough to let your feet bend, move, and flex the way, well, that feet are supposed to. The “XERO-drop” design (non-elevated heel) allows for proper posture, and it’s built low to the ground for balance and agility.
  • Natural FEEL — the Mesa Trail has a 5.5mm FeelTrue® rubber sole, including the 3.5mm lugs to give you the right combination of protection and grip, plus ground-feedback so your brain knows how to move your body optimally. Also, you can remove the 3.5mm insole, for a closer-to-barefoot experience that lets you Feel The World®.
  • Light weight — so light, in fact, you could forget you have them on. A men’s 9 is about 7.6 ounces (each).
  • Huarache-inspired design — the adjustable instep and midfoot straps are not just eye-catching but functional, giving you a secure and comfortable fit.
  • Vegan-friendly materials — No animal products are used in the Mesa Trail
  • 5,000 mile sole warranty — like all Xero Shoes, the Mesa Trail is backed with a 24 month manufacturer’s warranty and a 5,000 mile sole warranty.

Caring for your Mesa Trails

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

The TerraFlex is our first shoe designed for trails. With a rugged, stitched upper, it’s great for running and hiking.

The Mesa Trail is made more specifically for trail running, with a lightweight breathable mesh upper, extra moisture wicking with the “37.5” lining, and a protective welded covering for the adjustable midfoot and instep straps.

Both shoes have a grippy, lugged, dual-chevron tread, and a 3mm TrailFoam layer (“hiding” in the outsole) for just-right protection and comfort.

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.

Please go to Xero Shoes Return Policy page to learn about our 45-day return policy.

Pure Awesome

So I've got about 75 miles or so in these since getting them and they're flippin' awesome! They're super light, super comfortable and I can feel every bit of the ground beneath me. I'll be buying these again when I need them. Go give them a shot, you won't regret it!

Great Shoe!

The Mesa Trail is light, flexible and enjoyable to wear on trails. I don’t suggest using it on extremely rocky trails, but it will be good for most trails where one can step around sharp rocks.

Nice shoe but sizing is off

I got the Mesa Trail 1 shoes on clearance sale so I can't complain about the price. I like the grippy tread and the springy bounce though my 69 year old feet would probably prefer a little more cushion. Since I use them mainly for working out, it isn't that big of a deal. I normally wear a size 12 in most every shoe I own. Xero recommended that I size-up 1/2 a size so I ordered a 12.5. My toe still touches the end of the shoe. I would have been better off ordering a 13 or 13.5. Time will tell how they hold up but they seem well made.

Wish they were wider

I really like these shoes. I wish they were a little wider across the forefoot I would have given them 5 stars.

Comfortable but had an issue

These shoes were great but the tongue loop on one shoe became unstitched and started to fall apart. I brought this to the attention of Xero and they said they would replace them. I already have the process was quick and easy.

Great feel and helpful for my feet

i believe this is my 5th pair of Xero shoes... Mesa Trail are now my favorite as i have sensitive outside balls of my feet )callous and deteriorated foot pad), and these still provide enough cushion in the tread without out losing the light shoe feel and helping with my feet feeling more natural in my walking, thanks again for a great product!!

Great shoe!

Very comfortable, nice and wide for my big/flat feet. Makes me more conscious of how I step and I love interacting with the earth beneath me. I’ve found myself wearing them in the house like slippers!

Great Product, Great Support

My wife has been wearing Xero shoes for quite a while, but this was my first pair. I have "unhappy" feet. They are wide with high arches and are impacted by neuropathy. I wear shoes as little as I have to...and when I have to take them off as soon as I'm back indoors (whether at home, work, or wherever). I was hopeful about Xero shoe's wide foot box but more than a little worried about how my feet would handle the lack of arch support. I read Xero literature about how it could take some time for feet to adjust to the shoes and wondered if mine would. Well, for me there was NO adjustment period. They felt great from the get-go. I particularly like how they feel sockless. On a recent international trip, I wore them for 17 straight hours comfortably! I was also impressed with great customer service (quick delivery) and support (useful information about how to get the most out of my shoes). We'll see how well they hold up over time, but at this point I'd highly recommend them to other's that don't like to wear shoes!

Best Trail Shoes I've ever owned

The Mesa Trail for men shoe is a barefoot trail shoe. I love the barefoot experience and the flexibility of wearing these as everyday shoes or walking the trails with. Most days I forget I even have them on. My feet are happy!
