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.

Awesome hiking sandals!

I recently purchased the z-Trail sandals in Santa Fe and I’ve been wearing them while walking my dog on trail hikes, at campgrounds, and even around the city shopping, etc. I bought the men’s because I have wide feet and I’m glad I did, the women’s version would have most likely been too narrow. I own many different brands of outdoor/hiking sandals and these are by far the most comfortable I’ve ever owned and already my favorite! Just buy them already!

Supersandals

I've worn these for virtually every hike I've done over the past two years. The insoles are incredibly grippy, the outsoles will hold their own against almost all types of terrain (smooth wet rocks seem to be its kryptonite, I've discovered), and the level of feedback is phenomenal.

Coments

I have sent several notes and worked to figure out the proper fit for the sandals. I think I have adjusted the toe strap on the right shoe enough to keep the toes from going over the front of the sandal. They are very comfortable and I will keep the size 12's.

Great lightweight sandals

I bought these to have alternate footwear after a long day of backpacking, bike touring, or just on a road trip. So far, I love them as they are light and comfortable. My only critical comment would be that they are a bit fiddly to get into, as it it takes a little time and two hands instead of just kicking your feet into them. I feel that this is a pretty minor tradeoff for something that otherwise is so light and works so well.
