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).

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 😉 ).

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.

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”).

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 Sandal

These sandals are simply awesome, and I'm really not sure why they don't get as much hype as the other designs. Yes, they are a bit more expensive than the other sandals with the same designs, but the textured footbed is absolutely delightful. It doesn't hurt my feet at all, and actually just makes me want to walk around in them even more than I otherwise would! I'd imagine it's the same sensory stimulation as walking barefoot, but as someone who recently did walk barefoot through downtown Denver (not on purpose!), I can absolutely state that these are far more comfortable and keep my feet way cleaner. To me, these are worth the extra few dollars, and a phenomenal sandal.

Just not a sandal guy

They're great sandals just not for me. I liked the increased feedback from the naboso foot beds but I couldnt get the steps adjusted comfortably

Worth it!

I was a little skeptical of the concept of the Naboso, but I like my other Xero shoes and sandals, so I decided to give these a try and I am glad I did. My feet just feel...more, better. It doesn't feel uncomfortable or like being on points; but like simply being more aware. I feel better walking and running in them, the sensation is like a massage, but somehow more subtle. The first day I wore them 3 miles and my feet felt more tired than usual afterwards, but in a good way, and that was the only time. I highly recommend these, by themselves and in comparison to the normal Zero sandals.

Great but...

They're great shoes and nice and comfy. My only complaint is that the toe box is a little too tapered. I wish it were wider.

I love these!

First off, finding a size 15 in most brands is impossible… So huge win there! Second, I absolutely love the lightweight feel of these shoes!! They are durable and provide just enough protection for your feet without taking away the feeling of the ground beneath you as you walk. 10/10 will get these again!

Naboso trail

Very comfortable. I wear them after I’ve been barefoot for a while, then have to go somewhere and I don’t want to put on shoes. These are like flip-flops for men. I’m thinking about changing careers so I can wear them to work.

Keeps my feet warm!

Get a load of this one...My slippers had too restrictive a toe bed - but I needed a barrier in the winter against the cold wood floor. I am a female - but got these Naboso men's sandals b/c they didn't have any women's available in my size going into the fall months. The templates to print out and measure your feet were perfect! I don't even were socks with these sandals around the house, and the Naboso technology is enough to keep my feet warm! Sockless in slippers that enclosed most of my feet didn't even keep my feet warm. Thank you Xero for this wonderful product!

Naboso Trail - Men - Coal Black / Black (10) Size a little small after longer walks

Having recently purchased the Naboso Trail sandals (US 10), I have to say these feel great and give my feet a sensory sensation that in the long run could be therapeutic, thanks to Naboso technology. Only time will tell. Though a bit tense I must say, just have to get used to them. Having tried them on indoors with restricted space and not reaping the full benefits, I decided to put them to the test outdoors. After walking in them for a while, I noticed my right foot in particular on the forward stride had a tendency of sliding to the front. It was to the extent that my toes would leap over the front of the sandal. I tightened the straps as much as I could but got the same result. Not that this is uncomfortable in any way but subconsciously I knew it was happening. The problem being is my right foot is slightly longer than my left one. I then came to the conclusion that perhaps I needed to go one size up and because I've worn these outside, can't exchange them now. As this is an international order, it would cost me quite a bit just to get an exchange even if I had the option, so will have to make do with them. Being based in the United Kingdom, the buying process proved quite expensive due to the delivery and especially custom charges being particularly high which was a slight hassle. Even at the time when a sale was on during the order. But this was my decision as here in England, availability and choice of Xero shoes isn't great and are more expensive. I would still recommend these sandals as the straps are of good quality and feel good against the skin. They secure the foot well onto the footbed and the sandals provide adequate support from any terrain you walk on, whilst strengthening your feet along the way. But they can get dirty pretty quickly so you'll have to wipe them down once in a while. Just a pity I didn't order a larger size. I now have to put the Prio shoes to the test when it gets a bit warmer. The cold weather doesn't help here at the moment.

My favorite sandals!

I didn’t know how much I’d love my Naboso Z-Trails. After a day of adjusting to their feel, I now crave wearing them because of how they make my feet feel!
