Product Description

“I went on a two week road trip and these were the only shoes I wore.”  – Andrew T.

The Z-Trek is the ultimate sports sandal.

From the trail to the city, on water and on land, set your feet free with Z-Trek – the lightweight, versatile sport sandal with a barefoot feel.

“Just-Right” Protection:

5.5mm FeelTrue® outsole protects you from unpleasant surfaces and gives you great ground feel.

Lightweight:
A men’s 9 is only 6.6 ounces each – you’ll barely notice you have them on.

Secure-feeling:

Adjustable Z-Pattern straps give you the right tension around your foot and heel, but leave your toes free to move.

Plus, the Z-Trek is made from 100% vegan-friendly materials.


Note: If you’re looking for more protection or even lighter weight in a Natural Movement sport sandal, check out our Z-Trail sandal.

Imagine you’ve just come home after a long day at work or on the trail. If you can’t wait to take your shoes off the moment you walk in the front door, you’ve been wearing the wrong shoes.
 
Life-Changing comfort and superior performance come from using your feet naturally.

That’s what Xero Shoes let you do.
 
Natural Fit. Natural Motion. Natural Feel.

Plus Xero Shoes are backed with a 5,000-mile sole warranty.

Use the templates that are linked on this page (next to where you select the size, and in the product description).

NOTE: Please measure your foot and/or use the templates. Sandal size is very often different than shoe size.

There are 54 different foot shapes. And no product will fit everyone perfectly.

If you’re not sure you have the right size, drop us an email with some photos (top, side, back) and we’ll give you our opinion.

If you have the right size but the Z-Trek shape doesn’t quite match your foot… CUT IT! That’s right, you can trim the Z-Trek with a good pair of kitchen scissors. To finish the edge cleanly, try some sandpaper. Don’t cut off too much, too soon, though. Take off just a bit, and then see how you did. Remember, you can’t UN-cut.

If you’re a man with a very narrow foot, you may be better in the “women’s” style. Conversely, women with very wide feet, or over a size 10, should check the sizing for he “men’s” products.

Pretty much anything you want. Take a walk on the beach, a hike in the woods, hang out with friend, stroll around the campsite, approach a climb, paddle a canoe, run a marathon…

I’m not sure that Z-Trek, or any sandal for that matter, is right for lateral motion sports, like tennis or basketball.

So, use your common sense and HAVE FUN!

You sure can. Just slide the webbing through the slots on the outside of the sole to get the tension you like.

Note: A lot of our customers report that they like the toe strap looser than they thought they would. Experiment and see what you like best.

The women’s Z-Trek is a bit narrower, and the webbing is 4mm thinner.

So if you have a narrow foot, whether you’re a man or woman, you may want to check the “women’s” sizing templates and see how those work for you. Similarly, if you have a wider foot, regardless of your gender, check out the “men’s” templates.

Z-Trek Lightweight Sport Sandal

I prefer to be barefoot but when I go out I wear my Z-Trek sandals. These are my replacement sandals as I wore out my first pair.

Loveed while they lasted

I loved wlaking/hiking in my Xero sandels. However, with less than 500 miles on them the sole broke where it attached to the strap. I suggest making that part of the sole a little stronger.

Hi Jeremy,

We've had people in the same pair of Z-Treks for almost 3 years... so what happened to you is clearly a manufacturing glitch (sadly, no manufacturing process is 100% perfect).

Contact our Customer Happiness Team directly at either support@xeroshoes.com or 303.447.3100 and they'll help you out.

Almost perfect

Well, I didn't wear all the way through the soles on my last pair, but I definitely got my money's worth out of them. That being said, I was slightly disappointed when I received my new pair and the same hard plastic clip that eventually got brittle and failed on my last pair, was not what appeared to have been replaced by a metal one as it looked in the pictures online. Not a biggie overall, I may have to get a new pair again next year, but not before I get my money's worth out of this pair.

Ditch the Chacos, ditch the Tevas, this sandal is what you need.

I used to own a pair of vibram five finger shoes, until I wore those out. I wore Tevas, then I finally joined the Chaco train. I've been an avid hiker, backpacker, runner, Crossfitter, biker, etc. in all of these sandals. The Z-Trek is the most durable and most naturally feeling sandal I've ever worn. I finally get the barefoot feeling of the five finger shoes, but with much less material and a simpler, more durable construction. With Chacos and Tevas, I had to constantly make multiple adjustments to the straps, could never just slip my feet into them to take the dog on a walk at 5am, nor could I loosen them when my feet swell on a long hike. Also, the straps would constantly rub against my bike pedals! I have NONE of these issues with my Z-Treks. Do yourself a favor - ditch the Chacos, ditch the Tevas, get yourself a pair of Z-Trek sandals.

Best sandles I’ve owned

These are great! Practically lived in them all summer. Trick is to get them nice and snug on the ankles, and the rest follows.

Better than expected

These were my first pair of xero/minimalist shoes and I really didn't know what to expect. I'm really glad I took a chance and bought them though. I wear these every day and haven't worn "regular shoes" in almost 3 months. They are holding up great and I feel like my feet are stronger than they have ever been. Definitely recommended.

Great shoes and great support

So I love these sandals. At least I did until they broke after fifty miles and outside the 30 day return window. So what did they do. Made it 100% right. Paid all the shipping and sent me a new pair. Mistakes and accidents happen. Only get upset when people aren't accountable. Xero was accountable and treated me very well. Great product and great company. Patronize them and encourage this behavior if you want to be treated well by companies.
