Product Description

The Z-Trail gives you an unparalleled combination of:

  • Protection
  • Comfort
  • Light Weight
  • Flexibility
  • Durability
  • Versatility
  • and Affordability

What can you do in your Z-Trail sandals? 

  • At the end of a day of hiking, pull off your heavy, stiff, boots and slip into the freedom, comfort, and flexibility of the Z-Trail… they’re so light you’ll barely notice them on your feet (and will barely tell they were in your bag!).
  • Enjoy a run, on trails or roads, with the right amount of protection, and lightweight flexibility that’ll make you feel like you’re practically barefoot.
  • Yoga class? Well, the grippy soles make the Z-Trail like having a yoga mat on your feet all the time. Do your own class anywhere you are!
  • Head downstream… whether you’re in a canoe, a kayak, or a raft, the Z-Trail holds comfortably on your feet, and they float!
  • Take a walk — anywhere you like, from a mountain trail to an urban jungle. The comfort of the Z-Trail will surprise you.

What makes the Z-Trail special is the 3-layer FeelLite™ sole.

Z-Trail FeelLite sport sandal sole

  • The bottom has our FeelTrue® rubber for great grip and abrasion resistance.
  • The middle layer of TrailFoam™ provides an incredible amount of force absorption and protection.
  • Then, the top BareFoam™ layer adds a perfect amount of comfort.
  • And the FeelLite™ sole still maintains enough flexibility to allow for natural movement and ground-feel.

What’s the difference between the Z-Trek and Z-Trail?

Trek-versus-Trail-Roll

That’s the Z-Trek on the left, and the Z-Trail on the right. You can see that the Z-Trail is crazy flexible, but not quite as much as the Z-Trek.

I like to think that the Z-Trail is about protection and comfort first, and the Z-Trek is about connection first.

If I’ve been wearing my Z-Trails around for a while, enjoying the comfort, when I then put on the Z-Trek, I think, “Oh, right, I can FEEL things again!” So I go back and forth between them, depending on how much I want to feel.

Let’s talk about weight! This is maybe the best part.

The Z-Trail is about 20% lighter than the Z-Trek. But that’s nothing. Let’s compare the Z-Trail to a traditional sport sandal:

The reviews for the Z-Trail have been AMAZING. Pretty much everyone says that they’re the best sandal they’ve worn.

 More reasons you’ll love your Z-Trail sandals:

  • Super-comfortable tubular webbing — no hard edges.
  • Adjustable Z-pattern — get the right tension across your foot, over your foot, and behind your heel.
  • Three color combinations.
  • 10mm (~3/8″) FeelLite™ outsole protects you from unpleasant surfaces while still providing great ground-feel.
  • Elegant contour surrounds your foot but doesn’t add unnecessary support.
  • Super lightweight — a Men’s size 9 sandal averages 5.4 ounces each.
  • “Zero-Drop” — your heel isn’t elevated; your feet are anatomically correct.
  • Rust-proof nylon hardware.
  • 100% Vegan-friendly.
  • Ready to wear — the lacing is already done for you. Just slide in your foot and go.
  • Heel cup — keeps your heel in place, helps keep out debris.
  • 5,000-mile sole warranty! Wear out your Z-Trail soles in under 5,000 miles and we’ll replace them for a nominal cost (details here).

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.

Caring for your Z-Trail Sandals

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).

Close to perfection

The Z Trail sandals deliver on every promise made - - they are comfortable, lightweight, and have excellent traction. I have just worn them for the first time for an hour’s walk on a packed earth/sand trail, and there was no discomfort at all from the sandals.

The most comfortable footwear ive ever owned

I’ve never been the type to wear sandals aside from when I’m at the beach, but I legit wear these every single day, extremely comfortable for a casual day out, lifting, running yoga and hiking, I do everything in my xeroshoes. Thanks for making an amazing product!

Really good sandals

These are really comfortable, also stylish. I've gotten a few compliments on them I'm only a few months of owning my pair. I'm just kind of disappointed that the lugs on the soles seem to be getting worn down faster than I hoped/expected.

Customer for life

Most comfortable sandal I have ever worn. The Z-Trail has more cushion than expected and soft straps that don't hurt my feet at the end of the day. Using these sandals for camp shoes, water crossings, kayaking, and around the house. Definitely will be purchasing another product from Zero Shoes.

Z-Trail Santa Fe

My men's Z-Trail met all my expectations, super comfortable, easy to get on and off. Haven't used them so much yet because we're in winter here in Australia... can't wait for warmer days to show them off.

Light and fast

Something about running in sandals makes me run better. These sandals have quickly become my fastest shoes - I've broken my PRs for 5km through to half marathon in the last 4 weeks wearing these sandals. What's more, I love the look of them. My first half marathon in these, without socks, I ended up with a few blisters (still got a PR), which I never have an issue with in shoes. My second - a trail half marathon - I wore toe socks and had no issues with blisters. That was a very rough and rocky trail with some very steep climbs, and I had no issues with traction or rocks hurting my feet. I got a bit of attention too - so got to discuss the benefits of more natural movement. I'm not super fast, but I don't think I let the team down - 31st out of 149 finishers, and 3rd in my category (Male 45-55).

Just Enough Padding

I bought the Z-trail for a secure but minimal pad experience. The design aspect that sold me was the heel cup. In the few early summer months I've had them, the Z-trail have become my preferred open toe shoe. While I've found that walking / standing without shoes during this Covid-19 quarantee was hurting my feet by days end, the padding in the Z-trail was just enough to provide support while still giving me ground-feel when I walked off concrete surfaces.

Better at half the price!

I am loving these sandals so far. I have put my keen sandals on ebay because I don't wear them anymore. I have strap tan lines on my feet now.
