Product Description

Get the foot-stimulating benefits of Naboso® technology with the summertime freedom of our best-selling Z-Trail sandal

Naboso Trail Sandal - Proprioceptive Sport Sandals by Xero Shoes
Dr. Emily Splichal created Naboso® (meaning “barefoot” in Czech) technology. It’s the first-ever small nerve proprioceptive material commercially available and designed for the purpose of improving posture and enhancing movement.

We’ve been proudly offering the Naboso® insoles for people who want that beneficial foot stimulation in their shoes.

The Naboso Trail sandal still has a 3-layer sole, like the Z-Trail. We’ve used the Naboso® Performance material as the footbed:

  • 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 Naboso® Performance Technology layer gives you stimulation
  • And the sole still maintains enough flexibility to allow for natural movement and ground-feel

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

More reasons you’ll love your Naboso Trail sandals:

  • Super-comfortable tubular webbing — no hard edges.
  • Adjustable Z-pattern — get the right tension across your foot, over your foot, and behind your heel.
  • Super lightweight — a Men’s size 9 sandal averages 5.4 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.
  • 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).

In short, yes.

Though it may take you some time to work up to wearing your Naboso Trail sandals all day.

No need to push yourself. Do what’s comfortable (and, over time, what’s comfortable will “expand”).

Category: Naboso Trail

It will depend on you.

Some people will put them on and wear them all day, right away.

Others will find that too stimulating.

Listen to your body and “be your own coach.”

Wear them for 20-30 minutes and see how you feel. If that felt good, add some more time.

If it ever feels like you “did too much,” then rest and do a bit less the next few times you wear them before you increase the amount of time you have them on (sadly, we never know we “did too much” until we, well, do too much 😉 ).

Category: Naboso Trail

For some people, the Naboso Trail can be too stimulating at first.

No problem. Get a THIN pair of socks and wear those with your Naboso Trail at first.

When you feel ready, try 5-10 minutes without socks.

Over time, by listening to your body, you can build up the amount of time and the activities you do in your Naboso Trail sandals.

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.

Caring for your Naboso Trail Sandals

Because of the Naboso™ Technology in the Naboso Trail, these need a bit of extra attention.
Do not leave Naboso Trail in hot cars or exposed to intense or direct sunlight.

To clean your Naboso Trail sandals, hand wash with warm water, mild soap and allow them to air dry (away from direct sunlight).

Great shoes

Getting used to the Naboso pad. The shoe is very comfortable, fits perfectly, and walking in them feels good. I also like the tread; slipping on slick surfaces won't be an issue. Thanks for a great shoe, Alison

Best shoes I’ve ever owned

I’ve been barefoot my entire life, and no shoe or flip flop has ever felt so perfect on my foot. I have a pretty wide foot for a girl, so I ordered the men’s edition, and was thankful I did. Perfect fit, I recently wore these with socks for a lengthy hike in the sequoias, and was even pleasantly surprised with how great they were to hike in. I’m literally obsessed with this shoe, and really don’t ever wear anything else anymore. If you’re on the edge, splurge, worth it.

Footwear for feet

I don't even wear shoes, so why would I buy these? Sometimes a person has no choice and I thought these might be a good thing to have in the back pocket when popping in someplace where shoes are required. Nope. A little too bulky for that. (Try the True Feel kit for that). However they are totally awesome if you are stuck for some reason needing to wear something for the whole day or at least a chunk of hours. They are in many ways even more stimulating than going completely barefoot. As in, concrete, asphalt, brick, wood, tile and most of the surfaces we routinely walk on are not terribly interesting for the nerves in our feet. A really fantastic pair of footwear that let you feel the shape of the planet while providing a stimulating massage at the same time.

First barefoot inspired sandals

These have become my daily shoes. My feet were a little bit sore from the Naboso texture the first couple wears but I’ve gotten used to it. This and a pair of genesis were my first sets of barefoot sandals. It didn’t take long for me to feel really cramped in pretty much all of the shoes I used to find comfortable. I use them for running too. I am up to running a mile in them and wiIl gradually build that distance up. I’m very happy with my purchase and will definitely try other Xero products in the future.

Every step of the way

The fit is comfortable and secure and the feel is amazing with every step. 20 years ago I became a Chaco devotee, I’ll be wearing my Xeros for the next 20 years.

These feel great on the bottoms of my feet

I’m wild about the way these seem to wake up the soles of my feet. They’re my walking around sandals, and I really look forward to putting them on after my morning runs.

First Impressions

After receiving my Nabosa, I've only been able to wear them around the house a few times since I'm up North and it's not warm outside yet. They fit Perfect, they feel perfect and hold to the foot very well. The feeling when you take them off is weird but fun, like getting hours of massage to your feet. Can't wait to wear them on long days walk/hike/adventures

Sandals

My husband is a quadraplegic and we used them while on vacation and when he is at home. They look great and stimulate his feet. Feeling in his feet has improved.

Best of both worlds!

I've always wished I could put naboso insoles in my z-trails. So when they wore out I bought these to replace them instead of the same ones. Best Choice Ever! All the function and comfort of the original with the goodness of naboso added in!
