Product Description

“I went on a two week road trip and these were the only shoes I wore.”  – Andrew T.

The Z-Trek is the ultimate sports sandal.

From the trail to the city, on water and on land, set your feet free with Z-Trek – the lightweight, versatile sport sandal with a barefoot feel.

“Just-Right” Protection:

5.5ml FeelTrue® outsole protects you from unpleasant surfaces and gives you great ground feel.

Lightweight:
A men’s 9 is only 6.6 ounces each – you’ll barely notice you have them on.

Secure-feeling:

Adjustable Z-Pattern straps give you the right tension around your foot and heel, but leave your toes free to move.

Plus, the Z-Trek is made from 100% vegan-friendly materials.

Note: If you’re looking for more protection or even lighter weight in a Natural Movement sport sandal, check out our Z-Trail sandal.
Imagine you’ve just come home after a long day at work or on the trail. If you can’t wait to take your shoes off the moment you walk in the front door, you’ve been wearing the wrong shoes.
 
Life-Changing comfort and superior performance come from using your feet naturally.

That’s what Xero Shoes let you do.
 
Natural Fit. Natural Motion. Natural Feel.

Plus Xero Shoes are backed with a 5,000-mile sole warranty.

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.

Love all Xero Sandles

I've tried other "Minimalist" sandals and none of them compare to Xero.

5 Stars with an explanation

This is not a criticism of the product. I just have platypus feet, i.e. an extremely broad forefoot. I like the strap system for the lateral stability but it squeezes my foot, at the little toe in size 11 and at the base of the toe in size 10 (I tried both). I just needed it to be 1/4 to 1/2 inch wider. Too bad for me, but I still would highly recommend the sandal to people with normal feet

Pair #5

I love these sandals so much that this is the fifth pair that I have bought. I wear them all the time - Summer, Winter, running, hiking, going to the store...you name it. These are overall the best Xero Shoes that I've owned. I started with DIY huaraches, but the cord between the toes bothered me; not so here. My only criticism is that the top straps can loosen on me during a run or hike. I mitigate that by putting a small rivet through the strap. That takes all of about 20 minutes on a new pair and I'm off and running. Love these things!

Love Them!

I really like them! I've been wearing them for trail stuff and think they actually work really well for that even though their the "sport sandal." For climbing steep stuff they do get a little slidy when my feet are sweaty (that may be because I didn't get the trail shoes). I love what your company is doing and I feel really good about supporting you while also buying shoes I love. THANK YOU! Keep up the great work. These sandals were suggested to me by a friend, and I will definitely spread the good word.

Great sandals

Bought these for a trip to Bali, put about 50 miles on them walking around and they held up amazingly! My only complaint is the straps are a bit difficult to quickly take off and on, but that's a fairly minor thing.
