Product Description

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

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.

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

Amazing

The shoes are so comfortable that I am wearing them around the house and everywhere else in between. I am already planning these as birthday gifts for the rest of the family.

Light and comfortable

Excellent Quality, nice and lightweight. If it had a loop around my big toe it would stay more firmly attached to my foot and I could use it for more outdoor purposes - i like to kayak in sandals and these are the lightest (good for swimming) I have found, but not quite secure enough on my foot for that purpose.

I preferred the previous iteration

I preferred the longer strap. It configured it in a way that was easier to use. The short strap prevents this from happening if i want to wear socks. These are amazing other than that.

Strange but Nice

My husband finds these sandals odd to wear, but in fairness he isn't used to all those little feelers beneath his feet. Wearing socks helps with adjusting to the Naboso Trail, but he hasn't reached the point of going bearfoot in them yet. Despite that, it's nice knowing they're good for the feet, easy to clean, and otherwise comfortable to wear.

Spider Feet!

I love these sandals! When I first read about the Naboso insoles, I was skeptical. But it was as advertised: I developed Spider Feet! When I took these sandals off, I could feel all my senses awaken. Deeper connection to the ground. And very grippy feet, which is perfect for my squat & deadlift work, where the foundation of the movement start at my feet. Love these sandals and would highly recommend to anyone! Thank you Xero!

Amazing minimalist trail sandals

I hike and run in these on some pretty rocky trails (Santa Fe NM high desert/Rocky Mountains), and they are fabulous. The footbed is a bit harder than one might anticipate, which was initially an unexpected let down. I have since come to appreciate it, as the hardness is necessary to foster the stimulation on the soles of the feet. These are amazing. The thin sole is deceptively strong, and provides surprisingly good protection from sharp edges, thorns, etc. Highly recommended

Helped me walk properly again

I bought Xero Shoes because I had knee pain and I was recommended these from a guy online. Was skeptical at first but tried it out and 2-3 weeks later I was no longer heel striking. Wearing these felt weird at first but now it’s completely natural. Only 1 complaint: It’s a bit of an annoyance to put on, you can’t just slip into these like regular flip flops. You have to adjust the strap every time you put them on. If they could make putting these on a bit easier, it’s easily a 5 star.

Naboso trail

Love the feel so much so that I’m wearing only them. Don’t think I would need another pair of footwear for sometime now.
