Product Description

The Z-Trail gives you an unparalleled combination of:

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

What can you do in your Z-Trail sandals? Practically anything!

  • 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.
  • Yoga class? 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 with no hard edges.
  • Adjustable Z-pattern allows you to get the right tension you desire across the top of 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.
  • Super lightweight — a women’s size 7 sandal averages 4.3 ounces each.
  • Zero-drop means your heel isn’t elevated.
  • Rust-proof nylon hardware.
  • Heel cup keeps your heel in place and helps keep out debris.
  • Vegan-friendly.
  • 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).

How to adjust your Z-Trail for a perfect fit

Follow these simple video instructions to get the “just right” tension. This video is showing the Z-Trek, that uses a similar webbing system. But the Z-Trail hardware doesn’t have the “hook.”

Any questions? Just call us at 303 447 3100 or send us an email. We’re here to help.

Practically anything. 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 or a raft, do yoga or Crossfit, run a marathon…

I’m not sure that Z-Trail, or any sandal for that matter, is right for lateral motion sports, like tennis or basketball.

So, use your common sense and HAVE FUN!

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.

Also, if you have the Z-Trek, you may need a different size in the Z-Trail. The Z-Trek is a TINY bit longer than the Z-Trail, so if your toes come close to the edge in your Z-Treks, you may want to up one size for the Z-Trail.

The women’s Z-Trail 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.

Simple. First, slide the webbing through the slots on the outside of the sole to get the tension you like across your toes.
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.

Next, just pull the end of the webbing — our proprietary tensioner will hold everything in place. If something feels too tight, just flip the top of the tensioner up, and the webbing will easily loosen.

Finally, experiment with the tension of the heel strap. If you make it tighter, it’ll move your foot forward a bit. Make it looser and it’ll let your foot slide back.

Once you find the right tension, you have the choice to get in and out of your Z-Trail by either un-doing the heel strap, or loosening the top webbing. Personally, I leave the heel strap in place and use the top webbing to get in and out.

You can wash them with soap and water.

One thing to be careful of: Do not leave your Z-Trail in a hot car or exposed to extreme heat and sunlight (i.e. the back window or dashboard of a car is the WORST). The TrailFoam™ layer will deform if you do this, and this is not covered by our warranty.

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).

Amazing shoes!

The Z-Trail is hands down the best sandal I have stepped foot in. They work wonderful hiking, and they are my favorite shoes to wear for everyday use.

Z-Trail

I have to say the sole is a lot thicker than I'd thougt (also compared to my other barefoot shoes) but they are very comfortable and I can see myself making longer walkes and hikes in them. On the other hand it's nice to have a little more protection on sharp stones. It also seems to be of good quality, I hope it will last a long time.

Love these sandals!!

These sandals are my first experience with the zero drop style sole, and I love it so much! I'm not a runner, but I do like to walk without shoes as much as I can-and when I can't, these sandals are the next best thing! The only complaint I have is that I only wore them for about a month before the velcro on the heel started to get a little soft, and catches on my pants and floor length skirts, as well as the carpet on my car floor when I am driving. Not so much that they undo, but I wasn't expecting the quality to change so quickly. Otherwise, great shoe! I'd love to try some of the full footed shoes next.

Love the sandals and great customer service

These are so comfy and lightweight. I have been wearing them for about four months and then the strap broke on one of the sandals. The customer service was awesome and they sent me another pair of sandals as a replacement. I also love that they have a non-skid bottom. Highly recommend thank you

Love these shoes

I bought these for a trip to India and only brought 2 different pair of brand new Xero shoes with me. I have never worn them before but had heard good things so I went for it. A huge risk. I am beyond pleased. They are comfortable, lightweight and have carried me across India over many terrains. I am now a Xero shoes convert and will be buying more!

PERFECT FOR EVERY ADVENTURE

So I like to run, hike, and feel the water on my feet when I get out. I go almost everywhere with my Z trail! I feel connected with my feet, and at the same time I am provided with enough comfort. The grip is just awesome! Ahhhh highly recommend.

Still getting used to them

I really like the look. Still getting used to the way they feel. Like they are called, they are minimal. When I wear them all day my right knee (sensitive knee) is bothered by it. I like the idea of minimalist shoes, I hope my body becomes used to it soon.

Great shoe.

I now have several pairs of this shoe and wear them everywhere. I am going to hate the cold weather arrival when I need closed toes. But, I do my Xero shoes for that, also. It did take a while for the soles of my feet to get used to feeling the ground again. I have animals at home and never walk barefoot in the house. And that goes for outside also. If you have any doubts about these shoes, just get them and you will love them.
