Product Description

Now your kids can enjoy the freedom and natural movement of our best-selling sport sandal.

We’ve made two kid-friendly design changes to their Z-Trail:

  • Wider, comfortable, tubular straps
  • A solid FeelTrue® rubber sole for durability

After that, the Kid’s Z-Trail is everything you would want. Flexible. Comfortable with the BareFoam™ footbed. Lightweight. And backed with our 5,000 mile sole warranty.

Don’t worry about your kids growing out of them. When that happens, head to our Facebook Group to Buy/Sell/Trade for what they need next.

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.

These are great!!

My 10-year-old put these on after they came in the mail and ran up and down the driveway screaming, “I feel so free!!” He loves them.

So comfy!

My daughter loves her first pair of barefoot sandals. I love that she can spread her toes out

My kiddos love these shoes!

I bought both of my girls a pair for summer and they both love them. They wear them everywhere.

naturally wide

and the thin sole makes her feel like she's barefoot! bought a second pair (for those days where you can't find the first pair)

Sandal love

This was the only item of my order that was not returned . My granddaughter loves xero shoes and has worn them many years. This is the first pair I’ve purchased her since her parents are now on an extremely tight budget. I feel that they are rather expensive, but for my grandchildren I often spend more money than I should. Also her younger brother has been able to re-wear her styles in the past so hopefully these will get double use. She likes the fact that the sandals are “plain” without a bunch of girly accents like sparkles, sequins, etc. She prefers muted colors and simple styles, so xero shoes are definitely fit for her (they are just a very tight fit on the average individual’s income)

8 Year Old Loves

Asking my 8 year old questions: Me: How do you like your Z-trails? Forrest: Love them! Me: What do you like about them? Forrest: Everything! Me: How do they compare to your Earth Runners (also great shoes, tho) Forrest: Better in multiple ways. 1 is that they don't go into your toes (he's talking about the toe thong). 2 is that when you run, the Earth runners kind of collide with ground, but the Z-trails go softly. (I think he means the soles are more flexible and less slappy, but he had the thicker sole option of Earth Runners). 3 is that because of reason 2, hide and seek is a lot easier. I got Forrest into minimalist shoes a couple years ago. I always felt horrid buying him the big bulky things in the store that he wanted. I don't remember how, but finally I got through to him and he's gone through several pair of zero-rise, wide toe box shoes. One last thing. I learned when buying my own pair to print out the size template and make sure before ordering. I didn't do that, and my usual size was way too big. Used the template when ordering Forrest's and was able to avoid having to exchange sizes.

Amazing sandals for kids! Super durable. And fit my son's very wide feet. Thank you!

Favorite pair of shoes! Extremely comfortable and versatile.

Favorite pair of shoes! Only drawback is that if I wear them barefoot, my feet get black sweaty bits that are uncomfortable and nasty. Must wear socks with these.
