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.

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).

Love them

My daughter loves her new sandals! They fit very well and she says they are comfortable and she likes the look of them. Just starting to turn to spring where we live so she has only tried them out around the house so far. Looking forward to summer coming and her wearing them outside!

Super kids sandal

Both my older kids love these. They have great tread which is important for hiking and outdoor school. They can put them on themselves and I love that as a mom of three. They love the colors, too.

Happy Kid Feets!

My son is rather particular about his shoes, so I was hesitant to get these, but his feet are ALWAYS hot and sweaty so sandals are a favorite year-round for him. (This kid also thinks 60 degrees is great weather to play outside in only shorts). He LOVES THEM! We had a pair of Chacos that lasted us 2 years and while they always looked great on him, he wasn't the biggest fan. They were hard to adjust, heavy and while he wanted to wear them, he wanted to take them off rather quickly as well. On my journey to more barefoot shoes, I've started transitioning his shoes as well and these are a HIT. Comfortable, flexible, easy for him to put on and take off himself.

Great for your kids feet

I LOVE the Z-Trail adult sandals. They are super comfortable, really lightweight, flexible, look pretty decent, and might be my favorite thing to wear on my feet. I wear them ALL THE TIME whenever it's warm enough, which is a good bit of the time in this part of the country. Probably 75% of the time during the year when I'm wearing shoes, it's the Z-Trail sandals. These are basically the same as the regular Z-Trail, but just the kids version. In my opinion, I think that wearing something like these would be better for your kid's feet, as a lot of shoes can be constricting and not let your kids use their foot muscles in the way they're supposed to be used, potentially leading to future issues. Set your kids up for a lifetime of good foot health. These are comfortable, pretty durable while being super lightweight, easily cleanable, stay on well on your kids feet and are easily adjustable, work well in wet or dry, and are all around a great sandal for kids. I couldn't ask for more in a kids sandal.

«Finally, I can run just like daddy!»

I am myself using the Z-Trek as my main running sandals, both on-road and in the trails. Over the years, I purchased countless sandals for my kids ... but in the end, none of them ever really held-up to the task of running ... especially durability-wise. Once again, Xero Shoes is "changing the game", this kid sandal has the exact same features and built-quality as the adult version. It's wintertime here in Montreal with tons of snow ...but my son Theoderic just can't wait to take them out for a run! We went to the indoor track and he loved the experience of speedwork intervals in them!

Kids Z-Trail

I LOVE that Xero is coming out with kid's shoes and these sandals are amazing! My kids don't want to take them off. They are easy to get to the proper adjustment and then they are completely secure on their feet - they can run, climb and everything else without worrying about them slipping. My kids also love that there is no uncomfortable strap in between their toes - they are super comfortable. They said these are the best sandals they have ever had!

Ready for Adventures!

A minimalist sandal for kids-whooo hoo! These are a breeze for my child to put on by himself and they stayed put as he jumped, climbed, and splashed his way through the day. The sandal is flexible with plenty of roomy space for healthy/strong feet and they dry quickly after a fun day in the water!

Big high five !

In behalf of my kids a HUGE high five for these ! At what temperature are sandals inappropriate to wear outside because my kids won’t take them off ! They are comfy out of the box and the straps are sturdy enough to get wet but don’t rub. My kids have been living in them outside even if it’s 30 or 79 ! Awesome !

You have no idea how excited I was when I heard Xero shoes was coming out with a youth ZTrail!!! When the youth Prio came out we got that for our 7 year old daughter and those were a hit from the beginning. The youth Z-Ttail is no different. She loved them right away! I am excited for our daughter to wear them camping, hiking, biking and just doing kid stuff outside. She has sensory issues with how things feel (clothes, shoes, socks, food etc.) and Xero shoes are the first pair of shoes, first the Prio and now Z-Trail, we’ve ever owned that don’t bother her! Another WIN from Xero!!!
