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.

Check out these reviews (and then click the REVIEWS tab, above to see more!):





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).

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.

Love them

They feel great. I am a teva fan from way back and these are just as comfortable. plus the material that the sole is made of is smoother so feels even better against my feet. Wish they had been available in santa fe color. Now i live in Mexico and I don't think I can order another pair from here.

LOVE my Z-Trails

I purchased these to replace a pair of heavy, clunky sandals that were never as comfy for me as they were advertised to be. Then my Z-Trails arrived and they were exactly what I wanted - light, comfy, and perfect for my feet. I love my Z-Trails and can't wait to get a few more colors! I ordered my normal size of 10 and they fit well.

New favorite shoes!

These are my new every day everything shoes. I absolutely love them and they're so comfortable I forget I have them on. I have seriously gotten in bed three different times with them on and then realize I still have them on. The only downfall of them is that they smell easily. I stepped in some water and they've smelled every since. I'm having a hard time getting the smell to go away and stay away instead of coming back each use. Otherwise, I LOVE these shoes and just ignore the smell lol

Amazing!

I'm new to the barefoot movement and was a little hesitant to buy my first pair. I don't have any other pair so I can't really compare at this point. But I don't regret my purchase! They have excellent grip, they're pretty and discreet enough that they can be worn while exploring or in the city, and most surprisingly to me, they are incredibly comfortable (how is that even possible with such a thin sole??!). I'm almost disappointed that I don't feel the ground more. I love them and I 100% recommend!

I do love these!

They are adjustable enough for even my narrow feet and so comfortable I forget I have them on! Now, something as comfortable and well fitting for our Indiana winters! I have (regular) boots but I NEED shoes for when there’s no snow/rain!

Love these sandals

I bought these for summer hiking and as water shoes for days when I know I'll end up wading in a creek for a while or kayaking, and they've been perfect. They fit my wide feet well (I've never before had a sandal that my whole foot fits easily on width-wise). They dry quickly, are comfortable, and look nice.

Disappointed

I want to love these shoes, $80 is a hefty price tag for a simple sandal but THEY BROKE THE FIRST TIME I WORE THEM! The inner ankle connector piece wasn't even stitched--it was glued and quickly broke. Luckily I was in town and not on a hike. I'm really disappointed in this product because I liked the feel. However I need reliable footwear and this ain't it.
