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.

“Love these shoes! I wear these from the gym, to work, to church, to the beach.
Great style and wearability!”  – Larry K.

The Z-Trail EV offers the perfect combination of lightweight protection, natural flexibility, durability, versatility, style and affordability. 

Is it the best barefoot hiking sandal? We think so!

WHAT MAKES THE Z-TRAIL EV THE ULTIMATE SPORTS SANDAL?

LIGHTWEIGHT PROTECTION THAT FEELS JUST RIGHT.

The Z-Trail EV features an updated 10mm FeelLite™ sole with a middle layer of TrailFoam™ and an updated dual chevron lug pattern that offers the best combination of comfort, protection, and trail-ready traction while still allowing you to bend, move, flex, and feel the terrain beneath your feet. 

At just 5.4 ounces each for a men’s size 9, the Z-Trail EV remains just as lightweight and versatile as the original best-selling Z-Trail. 

MADE FROM EARTH & VEGAN-FRIENDLY MATERIALS.

The Z-Trail EV eliminates 70% of the unnecessary materials used in modern sports sandals – and because its soft, tubular quick-dry webbing is made from nylon sourced from recycled water bottles, it’s even better for the planet than before!

GOES ANYWHERE. GOES WITH ANYTHING.

Available in three colors, the new Z-Trail EV is ultra-capable yet stylish enough to accompany just about any look, so you can take anywhere from the trail to the boardwalk and everywhere in between. 

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-Trail EV.
 
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 non-elevated “zero drop” heel for proper posture, 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.

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

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.

Caring for your Z-Trail EVs

Because of the TrailFoam™ in the Z-Trail, these need a bit of extra attention. Do not leave Z-Trail in hot cars or exposed to intense or direct sunlight. This could cause the TrailFoam™ to deform and is not covered by our warranty.

To clean your Z-Trail sandals, hand wash with warm water, mild soap and allow them to air dry (away from direct sunlight).

Very good

Bought these to wear around camp or when wading across a stream while section hiking the AT from GA to VA. Comfortable, easy to put on, grippy soles. They are a bit heavy, but I traded weight for durability and a thicker sole to protect my feet. Good purchase for me. Will use them again next year (VA to CT).

Bought a second pair

Loved the first pair so much I bought a second. Love how light they are- it’s like barefoot but not

Great minimalist sandals!

Other than being slightly cumbersome to put on, these are great and tough sandals for walking, hiking, and everything in between.

Z-Trail EV - Mens

Love the product and customer service. Had an original pair of Z-trails that worked out great but a strap tore. Called customer service and sent pictures of my shoes with the torn strap. They sent me a new pair just in time for my Grand Canyon River adventure. Warranty and customer service is 5 stars. Thanks

Great sandals

I've really enjoyed these sandals, so far. They fit securely and I find the tread to provide more than adequate traction. Some of the other soles have softer, less pronounced chevrons and I find those to be a little slippery when things get wet, but I haven't had any problems with these. They're great sandals for hiking, running, or just kicking around town. My only minor complaint is that these sandals do require you to sit down to put on. It'd be nice if it was easier to slip them on, but then I imagine they'd be less secure. Oh, and wouldn't it be cool if there was a loop to store your hash pipe?
