Why You’ll Love H-Trail

H-Trail – A Trail-Ready Huarache-Style Sandal

We’ve spent five years developing this sandal to give you the ultimate performance, comfort, and freedom of a huarache-style sandal. 

The H-Trail is your perfect companion for all your outdoor adventures, from warm-weather hikes to water sports.

Finally! I’ve been wanting a thong-style trail sandal from Xero Shoes! It’s so secure and comfortable that I could run miles in it.

Matt M., Verified H-Trail Customer

The Perfect Fit For YOU

With four adjustment points across the instep and heel, you’ve never had comfort and security like this in a huarache-style sandal.

Adjust the tension and angle of the toe strap, the location of the instep strap, and the position of your foot in the sandal with the heel strap. Put this all together, and the H-Trail holds your foot wherever you take it without the pressure points typically associated with a thong-style sandal.

Trail-Ready Sole

The H-Trail features a FeelTrue® rubber outsole with the dual chevron lug pattern gives you trail-ready traction, the TrailFoam™ middle layer evens out the bumps, and the BareFoam™ footbed gives you the just-right comfort. 

Put it all together, and enjoy your favorite trails (even urban ones) while your feet bend, flex, and feel the terrain beneath you. 

You’ll barely feel the H-Trail on your feet with a men’s size 9 weighing 6.5 oz each. And if you ever take it off (you may forget you’re even wearing it), it takes up no room in your bag and is perfect for travel.

Goes Anywhere. Goes With Anything.

The H-Trail is ultra-capable for outdoor adventures yet stylish enough to accompany any look, so you can take it anywhere from the trail to the boardwalk and everywhere in between.

Caring for your Xero Shoes

To clean your Xero Shoes, hand wash with warm water, mild soap and allow them to air dry. We do not recommend putting them in the washing machine or dryer.

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.

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

Good choice for hiking

Last month I won the Thebarefootrunners.org Xero Shoes giveaway and picked the H-Trail sandal. The 9mm thick sole appealed to me because of some of the rocky and technical trails we have in the area. My standard Shamma Cruzers (6mm sole) are great, but during a recent hike up a creek-bed my feet were not terribly happy toward the end of the day. And now I've found that the H-Trails are a solid choice for rocky terrain. In the last few weeks I've been on a few hikes and found what works on them and where I still see shortcomings. Like every pair of sandals I've ever owned the straps take a while to adjust correctly. In the first few days wearing the H-Trails for my daily walk they didn't impress me. The four adjustment points on the straps initially made it a challenge to dial in the correct fit. In fact, my first hike (Lone Oak trail on Buffalo Mt, Johnson City, TN. 3.5 mi and 1200ft elevation gain) left me with a nasty raw mark where the tab at the top of the toe post was rubbing for two hours. Eventually I adjusted the straps to my satisfaction, but it may have taken longer than usual simply due to the many adjustment points that I had to choose from. ​Where the H-Trail really stands out for me is the sole. The traction is fantastic on steep, rocky trails. The footbed is comfortable and generally didn't slip much when wet. Last weekend on a hike to hunt for wildflowers we ventured up a hollow on Holston Mountain and I never slipped an inch while scrambling up the creek and over rocks and downed trees. The H-Trails won't replace my Cruzers as my daily walking and running sandals, but they're now my first choice for hiking. The only lingering issue I have with them is still the straps. My heel never quite feels as secure in them as in my Shammas or Luna Origens. Despite my reservations about that straps I would recommend them to anyone looking for a trail sandal.

foot freedom

When I was much younger, I wore authentic huaraches made in Mexico. I moved on to higher tech sandals and found that the more minimal the footwear the more I liked them. The major manufacturers have for the most part abandoned any hint of minimalism. Popular brands and styles are clunky, have annoying straps, buckles, and clasps. Your H-trails are just what I wanted. I feel liberated when wearing them. I had lately been bothered by hip and knee pain and after a couple of weeks wearing the H-trails my pain has been reduced to almost none. I am 73 years old, I walk 5 km almost every day and much longer when on frequent trips. I can walk all day with H-trails without pain or discomfort.

3rd pair of Xero sandals

I saw these sandals as I was preparing to leave for a trip to Jamaica and purchased them and they came I’m just in time to hitch a ride in my suitcase. Very comfortable and it was nice to have 3 different sandals to choose from on the trip. I used them all in different settings and didn’t put shoes on until I was leaving to come home. I have not been disappointed by any of my Xero products and I have several pairs of shoes, 2 pairs of boots, and now 3 sandals. I will say the hiking boots are not the best decision for a long backpacking trip with lots of weight. Learned that the hard way.

Wore these sandals for about 2 miles of walking on hard surfaces, in beach sand, and on rocks. They performed well! My feet felt fin on the rocks and sand and walking on the hard surfaces went quite well. The piece that go between the toes was soft and did not cause any rubbing.

Great Little Shoe

I started wearing these shoes immediately after a little adjustment. After each walk, I would make a few minor adjustments and at this point I'm very happy with the fit. I've worn "barefoot" shoes before so there wasn't much of an adjustment period, although I did wait before I went on longer walks. I have two criticisms: 1. The material of the foot bed has already begun to "crumble" or pull apart. I honestly think this will not be an issue and I'll be able to wear these shoes for years, but it seems like this shouldn't happen so quickly. I've had flip-flops for years and this hasn't happened. 2. The adjustment straps, especially across the top of the foot are a bit bulky so it's hard to make fine adjustments. This is a minor issue.
