Product Description

Due to increased costs of materials, manufacturing, and shipping, the price of this product will be raised on September 1st.
Limited quantities are available before that date.

“I’m absolutely in love with them and already use them for EVERYTHING. Walking, hiking, even everyday chores and tasks!”  – Megan H.

The comfort of a sport sandal upper, the lightweight, barely-there feel of a packable travel sandal. This combo lets the Z-Trek do it all.

WHY WILL THE THE Z-TREK BE YOUR FAVORITE ALL-PURPOSE SANDAL?

COMFORT AND SECURITY.

The Z-Trek is an upgrade to the popular original, now with smooth, tubular nylon straps made from rPET recycled materials. The fully adjustable strap system lets you fine tune your fit, giving you the security you love in Xero Shoes.

The 6.0 mm FeelTrue® sole gives fantastic ground feel while still protecting you from the elements, while the dual direction chevron tread provides you confident grip. All that and they still only weigh 5.6 ounces each for a women’s 7.

NATURAL FEELING. NATURAL STYLE. 

 The Z-trek is stylish and available in multiple colors. They’ll confidently take you from jogging at the beach, to your favorite water-sport, to a stroll through town, all while enjoying the benefits of natural freedom.

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-Trek.

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 wider, foot-shaped toe box that lets your toes spread and relax, a non-elevated “zero drop” heel for proper posture, a 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.

You sure can. Just slide the webbing through the slots on the outside of the sole to get the tension you like.

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.

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.

Pretty much anything you want. 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, run a marathon…

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

So, use your common sense and HAVE FUN!

There are 54 different foot shapes. And no product will fit everyone perfectly.

If you’re not sure you have the right size, drop us an email with some photos (top, side, back) and we’ll give you our opinion.

If you have the right size but the Z-Trek shape doesn’t quite match your foot… CUT IT! That’s right, you can trim the Z-Trek with a good pair of kitchen scissors. To finish the edge cleanly, try some sandpaper. Don’t cut off too much, too soon, though. Take off just a bit, and then see how you did. Remember, you can’t UN-cut.

If you’re a man with a very narrow foot, you may be better in the “women’s” style. Conversely, women with very wide feet, or over a size 10, should check the sizing for he “men’s” products.

The women’s Z-Trek 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.

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.

After you purchase a gift certificate, you’ll be able to enter an email address for the recipient.

You could email it to yourself and forward it at a later time if you like.

You can also take the Gift Certificate code and send it to the recipient.

Please go to Xero Shoes Return Policy page to learn about our 45-day return policy.

Just OK

Flat, compact, and durable, as expected. However, comfort-wise, I think the z-strap placement by the pinky toe is a questionable design. The strap on one of mine is 2 inches longer than the other, which I assume is a manufacturing error. Of course, this doesn't affect the functionality. I've since learned simple sandals like this have some disadvantages I'm not too fond of, mainly: the rubber-only sole can encourage blisters, especially in the heat; and despite the heel cup, plenty of debris will be finding its way under your foot.

My new Z-Treks

SO happy!! I've been wearing the "Jessie" sandals for several years now and thought I'd try something new. I'm in love. These fit my feet perfectly. I have them laced pretty loose because I hate tight things on my feet. They are perfect that way for almost every activity I've worn them for. Yesterday was my first real "hike" in them, over rocks, trees, a glacier, streams, up a mountain. The only disadvantage was on the way down when a few times they kind of rolled over on my feet, but again, I have them laced very loosely and I think had I tightened them they would have stayed put very well. I was actually pretty impressed on the slip-factor. I am 49 and not as balanced as I used to be, and I felt pretty confident in these sandals. Hooray! Thanks Xero!
