Limited quantities are available before that date.

“Love these shoes! I wear these from the gym, to work, to church, to the beach.
Great style and wearability!”  – Larry K.

The Z-Trail EV offers the perfect combination of lightweight protection, natural flexibility, durability, versatility, style and affordability. 

Is it the best barefoot hiking sandal? We think so!

WHAT MAKES THE Z-TRAIL EV THE ULTIMATE SPORTS SANDAL?

LIGHTWEIGHT PROTECTION THAT FEELS JUST RIGHT.

The Z-Trail EV features an updated 11mm FeelLite™ sole with a middle layer of TrailFoam™ and an updated dual chevron lug pattern that offers the best combination of comfort, protection, and trail-ready traction while still allowing you to bend, move, flex, and feel the terrain beneath your feet. 

At just 5.4 ounces each for a men’s size 9, the Z-Trail EV remains just as lightweight and versatile as the original best-selling Z-Trail. 

MADE FROM EARTH & VEGAN-FRIENDLY MATERIALS.

The Z-Trail EV eliminates 70% of the unnecessary materials used in modern sports sandals – and because its soft, tubular quick-dry webbing is made from nylon sourced from recycled water bottles, it’s even better for the planet than before!

GOES ANYWHERE. GOES WITH ANYTHING.

Available in three colors, the new Z-Trail EV is ultra-capable yet stylish enough to accompany just about any look, so you can take anywhere from the trail to the boardwalk and everywhere in between. 

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-Trail EV.
 
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 non-elevated “zero drop” heel for proper posture, 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.

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.

Caring for your Z-Trail EVs

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).

Z-trail

They feel great , one thing I notice is they are made true to size , the only reason I didn’t give a 5 star is the back Velcro slides down a bit no , it may be because I have the wrong size I have a size 12 speedforce so I got the same size sandals

Great shoe - but not necessarily in line with the wide toe box idealogy

Great shoe, laces, sole, design all awesome. However, I had to return as the highest strap is right over both of my bunions and makes my foot feel compressed (forces my big toe to point in) when this space should not be doing so. Had it not been for this design flaw, I would be wearing them all the time!

Love 'em

Upgraded from the z-treks to the z-trail. There's more grip without sacrificing the the barefooted-ness. Very natural feel, will buy again in the future.

My new favorite sandals

I love my Z-Trail. They are confortable and look great. I am a woman with extra wide feet. I ordered a man's size to be sure it will be wide enough and it is. I would have been fine with the women's version.

Pleasantly surprised

I wasn’t sure what to expect from the Z-trail sandals without seeing them first but they are just what I’ve been looking for. Very lightweight and they fit my feet fantastic. I wanted them for a camp shoe after a days hike and have taken them a couple bicycle tours so far and they stow away perfectly and are a treat to wear. I’m so glad I got them and will get a lot of use out of them.

Durable & toe splay

These are durable sandals. I’ve had them for a few years. The only downside is that the Buckle system tends to loosen a little bit, very gradually, though. Also, like many other sandals, that have a thin material glued on to the sandal between the sandal and your foot, starts to come off around the heel after a couple years, whereas the rest of the sandal is perfectly fine. I prefer the sandals over others, because my toes can splay compared to others

Superb for walking and jogging

Love the minimalist design and comfort once on. However I’m used to stepping into my Pikolinos sandals and immediately closing the over the top Velcro strap. I am unable to slip into your sandal without disengaging the heal strap first. Then rethreading it before closing the strap. Minor inconvenience and doesn’t keep me from wearing them because I can already see they are virtually indestructible vs the Pikolinos

So far excellent

I have been wearing them for about a week and a half. I like them. Very comfortable. I'm still working on getting the straps all adjusted. I think I have it. When I get the occasional dirt or rock between my foot and the sandal they are easy to clear. Have to learn to pick my feet up on some terrain. I'm getting better. John Bend, OR

Great Sandals

I tried several other brands before finally purchasing these. I couldn’t be more happy with the purchase. I prefer a barefoot shoe but thought most sandals were close enough to barefoot… they aren’t. These are perfect if you’re looking for an all day comfortable barefoot sandal.
