Product Description

Imagine your favorite sport sandal with less than 70% of the weight and almost all of the bulk.

With the Z-Trek, your feet are able to move, bend and flex. They can grip the ground as you hike. They’re as comfortable in the water — if you’re boating or fishing — as they are on land. They slide on and off in seconds but hold securely no matter what you’re doing.

Reasons you’ll love the Z-Trek:

  • Super-comfortable webbing
  • Adjustable Z-pattern — get the right tension across your foot, over your foot, and behind your heel.
  • Three color combinations — Coal Black soles with Black webbing, Mocha Earth soles with Coffee Bean webbing, and Slate soles with Multi-Blue webbing.
  • 5.5mm FeelTrue® outsole protects you from unpleasant surfaces without sacrificing ground feel
  • Elegant contour surrounds your foot, but doesn’t add unnecessary support
  • Super lightweight — a men’s size 9 sandal averages 7.2 ounces each
  • “Zero-Drop” — your heel isn’t elevated; your feet are anatomically correct
  • Rust-proof nylon hardware
  • 100% Vegan-friendly
  • Ready to wear — the lacing is already done for you. Just slide in your foot and go
  • Heel cup — keeps your heel in place, helps keep out debris, and adds a splash of color
  • 5,000-mile sole warranty! Wear out your Z-Trek soles in under 5,000 miles and we’ll replace them for a nominal cost (details here)

How to adjust your Z-Trek for a perfect fit

Follow these simple video instructions to get the “just right” tension (note: the new Z-Trek hardware no longer has the “hook”):

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

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Loveed while they lasted

I loved wlaking/hiking in my Xero sandels. However, with less than 500 miles on them the sole broke where it attached to the strap. I suggest making that part of the sole a little stronger.

Hi Jeremy,

We've had people in the same pair of Z-Treks for almost 3 years... so what happened to you is clearly a manufacturing glitch (sadly, no manufacturing process is 100% perfect).

Contact our Customer Happiness Team directly at either support@xeroshoes.com or 303.447.3100 and they'll help you out.

Almost perfect

Well, I didn't wear all the way through the soles on my last pair, but I definitely got my money's worth out of them. That being said, I was slightly disappointed when I received my new pair and the same hard plastic clip that eventually got brittle and failed on my last pair, was not what appeared to have been replaced by a metal one as it looked in the pictures online. Not a biggie overall, I may have to get a new pair again next year, but not before I get my money's worth out of this pair.

They're great (9/10)

I've had two pairs of the Z-Treks and they were faithful until the loop on the sole that connects the nylon band snapped (because I played tennis in one pair and basketball in the other. My fault entirely, I still completely recommend 'em.) Don't expect any---ANY---kind of support from these 'uns. You've come to the wrong shoe if you're looking for something plush. They will strengthen your Achilles' heal if you wear them con frecuencia, because it's truly like walking barefoot just with a very thick bottom of your foot. They're pretty light, very flexible, and the fact that they're designed off the footwear of the Tarahumara is a great conversation starter. Those people are crazy runners. My only qualm is that, without socks, (i.e. the way the vast majority of people would wear them) they smell bad and dirt/sweat accumulates in between your foot and the shoe. In conclusion though, they're great.

Amazing shoes; amazing customer service

I bought these because I have fallen arches and let me tell you; no other shoe compares. They came really fast in the mail EVEN over a holiday. I will say that my first pair broke but when I emailed Xero Shoes I got an email back in one hour and they shipped my new pair THE SAME DAY!!! The only customer service that compares is Lululemon. This is my third pair of Xero Shoes and I wouldn’t trade any of them for anything! Thanks Xero for giving me a pain free experience!

Best Shoes EVER...

I love Xero shoes. They are like walking barefoot and I wear them whenever I can and fortunately for me I live in Texas so that means pretty much all year.
