Product Description

Due to increased costs of materials, manufacturing, and shipping, the price of this product will be raised on September 1st.
Limited quantities are available before that date.

“I’m absolutely in love with them and already use them for EVERYTHING. Walking, hiking, even everyday chores and tasks!”  – Megan H.

The comfort of a sport sandal upper, the lightweight, barely-there feel of a packable travel sandal. This combo lets the Z-Trek do it all.

WHY WILL THE THE Z-TREK BE YOUR FAVORITE ALL-PURPOSE SANDAL?

COMFORT AND SECURITY.

The Z-Trek is an upgrade to the popular original, now with smooth, tubular nylon straps made from rPET recycled materials. The fully adjustable strap system lets you fine tune your fit, giving you the security you love in Xero Shoes.

The 6.0 mm FeelTrue® sole gives fantastic ground feel while still protecting you from the elements, while the dual direction chevron tread provides you confident grip. All that and they still only weigh 5.6 ounces each for a women’s 7.

NATURAL FEELING. NATURAL STYLE. 

 The Z-trek is stylish and available in multiple colors. They’ll confidently take you from jogging at the beach, to your favorite water-sport, to a stroll through town, all while enjoying the benefits of natural freedom.

WE MAKE SANDALS SO COMFORTABLE, YOU'LL FORGET THEY'RE EVEN ON.

If your feet don’t feel as good at the end of the day as they did in the beginning, you haven’t tried the Z-Trek.

Life-changing comfort and superior performance come from letting your feet do what’s natural – bend, move, flex and feel.

All Xero Shoes feature a wider, foot-shaped toe box that lets your toes spread and relax, a non-elevated “zero drop” heel for proper posture, a low-to-the-ground design for perfect balance and agility, and a flexible sole that gives you “just right” protection so you can bend, move, flex, and safely Feel the World® in total comfort.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

The shoes of my dreams

I love these shoes!!!! I wear them all the time for walking around town. I can't wait to try them hiking when the trails reopen.

Eh

These are okay. If you're in doubt because of the size, and don't want to have to return them, try a different kind of sandals. I normally wear a size 9 in women's. I printed out the size templates for an 8 and 9. I was a tiny bit closer to the 9. On the product page it says that they run a half size large. In the product description it says to go with your size or a half size down. I ordered the 9 and they were too big. I couldn't tighten them without the straps hanging way out. I have a pretty hairy dog so I knew that would ruin the Velcro fast. And, if they aren't tight, they slide around on your feet. I thought about exchanging for a different size but, honestly, I really didn't care much for the design. I ordered the Aqua Clouds right away (I love them!), and took my Z-Treks to the free store in our town. I figured someone else might need them and it would help get the name around our town.

Love my Z-Trek sandals

They are very comfortable and I love how they look! They were a little longer than I needed but were super easy to trim to fit! Didn’t love DHL charging me an extra $23 on top of what I had already paid for shipping to take the parcel through customs. That just means I chose usps this time for shipping for my new xero running shoes.

Whole family loves them

I started out being the one in my family interested in these sandals. I love being barefoot and hate wearing shoes so these seemed perfect especially with no toe thong. I definitely did love them and now so do my husband and two children. All four of us have a pair and love them!

Love my shoes

Very excited to find barefoot shoes that fit my narrow feet! Waiting for restock to purchase more for work…I am wondering if you have thought about adding grounding to your sandals or other casual shoes? That would be marvelous!

Xero Shoes

Hi Sharon, Thank you for your feedback. While our shoes are low to the ground for balance and agility, and flexible enough to let your feet bend and move naturally, our shoes are not electrically conductive. At this time, earthing/grounding shoes are not a design that we are pursuing. Please reach out to [email protected] if you have any further questions. 🙂
