Product Description

“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.

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).

Best sandals I've ever owned.

Amazing. I wear these sandals every single day. I love them. I can use them for everything I do and get great airflow to the feet with all natural motion.

Awesome

Blown away by how much I like these. Decided to jump on the barefoot/minimalist bandwagon after some health issues that impacted my lower extremities. My Allbirds and Birks were agitating this newly experienced neuropathy so I needed something as close to barefoot as possible. These were the answer. I’ve worn them in the backyard, out and about in town and at the beach. They did great on all these different surfaces. They felt like I was wearing nothing at all.

Love These!

These sandals are comfortable and versatile. Due to my wide feet, I have to order men's shoes. I've worn these with everything from hiking gear to maxi skirts and they look great. Best of all is how much my foot pain has decreased since starting to wear Xero shoes last fall. I've tried several inserts, etc. etc. Nothing has helped like wearing these. My only wish is that this particular sandal would have come in half sizes.

Great for walking and hiking, not running

I like these a lot. They are great for hiking and walking. But for running, the reason I bought them, not so much. Even with Injinji toe socks covering my feet, and then sliding these sandals on to go for a run, I’m still left with blood blisters at the base of, and underneath both big toes (so the bottom and base of both big toes), even for just a very short four miles. I run ultras - I’ve run as far as 355 miles in 4.5 days... and I was very curious to give these a go and strengthen my feet at the same time. The top portion of the sandals (the part your foot rests on) feels nice to the touch with your hands, and durable. But it reminds me of running on a treadmill shoeless, either with or without socks. Yes, I’ve tried that to experiment. Starts to burn pretty quickly after just a couple miles. These sandals are not THAT bad, but very similar. I may save these sandals for ONLY hiking, walking, casual-wear.

My other sandals

I split my time between my Amauri Venture and my Prius. One day the thong of my sandals were irritating that spot between my big toe and the next toe. After 5 years of frequent use my first bad day. So I ordered a pair of z-trails. I was surprised at the thickness but that’s a good thing many of the places I walk. Any way, I’m wearing them right now they are so good.

Z Trail EV

The product feels good on the feet. I actually prefer the feel of the Z Trek. That is why this product gets four instead or five stars.

Comfort

Very comfortable. Good feeling of being almost barefooted with a good ergonomic style. Surely easy to carry anywhere because if their physical profile. I surely enjoy wearing them as the summer rolls in. Would love to see them in all black color.

It's hard to say but I am sure that these sandals will be just fine! I'm still wearing wearing out my first pair of Z Trail sandals. I've always been in the habit that I if I like a pair of shoes or sandals, to quickly buy the next pair to have on standby ( no pun intended ) when the current are wears out!

I love these sandals! Great product!

I love these sandals! After purchasing my first pair of Xero sandals a couple of years ago, Xero shoes and sandals is all I wear! I have 6 pairs between shoes and sandals. (Daylight Hiker Fusion, Xcursion Fusion, Z-Trail x2, and Z-Trek x2.) I have replaced almost everything I have with Xero products because the other shoes and sandals just aren't comfortable anymore. I had been wearing Reebok, Nike, and Teva for decades. I have found that I am a lot more stable in these 'barefoot' style shoes than I was before, and that is more important to these old bones than it used to be!
