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.”

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.

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.

Finally walking with my legs, not my back!

Minimal shoes blew my mind! I have scoliosis and my psoas would tighten up every time I walked up hill or walked for more than 10 minutes, and I'd always have to hike with trekking poles. After my first hike with Z-Trail, I could feel the muscles in my calves working out, and no more pain in the psoas! I love that I can now feel the texture of different terrains and have a better grip on loose gravels. I started wearing them more around town, in house, in car, and they've been my main go-to shoes now. The only downside is the material of the footbed collects foot debris and not odor resistant. I'm not used to sports sandals so having dirt/dust under my feet is a new thing (I grew up in an Asian household), and it gets icky when wet/sweated on, obviously they're not the water sports model. Overall 9.8/10, they're lightweight, perfect travel companion, fixed my back issues and fun to walk with!

I can't wear anything else now.

Once you go zero drop, you will never go back. I live in these sandals all summer.

I like these shoes the more I wear them

When I first put them on, they felt a little weird. After about an hour after having them on around the house, I forgot I was wearing them. When adjusted properly, these shoes are very comfortable. I wore them hiking and had no problems with slipping. These were great for going from the trail into the creek and then back on the trail. They don’t feel heavy with water once you step out. They also dry quickly. Great grip on the rocks in the creek. The fit was true to size.

Natural Feeling Shoes!!

These sndals are very comfortable and feel like you're wearing nothing at all without the pain of the rocks in the soles of your feet. I love these shoes for daily use or working out in and plan to buy more.

Super happy with them!

I pined for the z-trails for over a year before purchasing. They fit well, and I expect to get many miles out of them. The only thing I would change is making the heel strap a little longer... my Velcro barely overlaps, despite all other straps fitting well. Overall, happy with my purchase!
