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

Fantastic Sandals

I have been a big fan of Naboso for a while and was super excited about this collaboration. It did not disappoint. I love these sandals! They fit well and the I love the sensory response my foot gets from the Naboso surface. The only downside is that your foot will slip around if it gets wet.

Excellent shoes

I got these shoes as a gift for my husband. He loves them. Our puppy chewed through them and he liked them so much we bought another pair. I think that says it all!

Great for what they are, but a little thick for me.

They are well built and well designed and the Naboso surface is amazing (I use Naboso insoles in everything), but they are a little thick for my taste. Most people would probably love them. I’m used to 4mm toe shoes and 4mm Xero DIY sandals, so these are just too much sole for me.

I miss the lip at the back...

The z-trails & z-trek have that lip at the back. And since this Naboso sandal is supposed to mirror the z-trail I thought it was a design flaw. I believe in Dr. Emily’s products that’s why I opted to buy these, however had I known these didn’t have the lip, I’m not 100% certain I would’ve gone through with the purchase as the price is considerably steep.

So far, so great!

My oldest son wore a pair of these on a trek through Europe and Southeast Asia in 2019 and recommended them to me to be worn while hiking here in the States. He said they would help develop “micro” muscles in my foot to help compensate for an old work injury! So far they have performed very well!

Great sandals!!

These sandals are great for all activities! We love them. They are comfy, lightweight, and adjustable! We have hiked in the water with them & used them for stand up paddle boarding too.

Just needs a little more cushion

These are amazing, but since I use them in the city I wish they had more cushioning. Walking on softer natural ground with them is a dream, though! They really stimulate your feet.

Perfect for TrueForm Runner + Training

TL;DR This is like when chocolate first got stuck in the peanut butter, two great products in one. I was considering the Naboso insoles for some time, I couldn’t justify the cost on a ‘maybe it works’ product, at the same time I spied a runner in a TrueFrorm video in sandals. Intrigued, I researched and stumbled across Xeros, then Xero Trails which had the Naboso soles integrated. For the price of a Naboso sole you get the Xero sandal? Sold. The texture took me very little time to get used to, and the Xero Trail is a dream to run in, especially on theTrueForm. Proprioception + minimal is just an incredible combination. Bonus: the Proprioception improves weight training, specifically lower body work i.e. deadlifts and squats. Having a zero drop `connected` feedback loop changed my training. Some thoughts: • Would be nice to know which specific Naboso product is used • Would be nice to select other Naboso sole options • You might find the Naboso soles give a pedicure; after a good training session they slough off a good amount of skin, be prepared to clean these regularly. • Sizing printout worked fantastic, I went up in size when in doubt and it was bang on. • I’m a size 11 and the top foot strap is very long, XERO could save on fabric/cost by researching if you could reduce that length. • The tread could use a chamfer on the studs, or a wider distribution pattern. Its not super for actual trails as they cake up quickly.

Best sandle ever

Absolutly hands down the best, most natural fealing, and lightest, minimalist hiking sandle I've ever strapped to my feet. I wear them EVERYWHERE. Less than 200 miles in em and I can allready tell you that these are life changing. My only hang-up is the material that binds the heel-strap and adjustable strap is already starting to tear with everyday use.
