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.

Please go to Xero Shoes Return Policy page to learn about our 45-day return policy.

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.

After you purchase a gift certificate, you’ll be able to enter an email address for the recipient.

You could email it to yourself and forward it at a later time if you like.

You can also take the Gift Certificate code and send it to the recipient.

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.

Great fitting sandals

Once we got the straps adjusted right, my five year old has had no trouble putting these on herself. She loves them and they stay on her feet. We haven’t had any issues with her tripping or anything, which I pay attention to with kids and open toe sandals. Great sandal! Love the color choices—classic colors and understated patterns.

great comfy sandals

I have the adult version of these and they are the best sandals I have owned. I got my kid these to wear in between sporting events (taking off his cleats) and initially he refused, but once he started wearing them he realized how comfortable they are and immediately puts them on whenever he gets the chance. Loves them.

Fits well, looks great

Love the shoes, and so does my kiddo. Gave my 5 yo the choice between three different types of barefoot shoes and he picked these. My only complaint would be that the strap is really long--so long that the end still flaps around when the little silicon band slides as far as it goes to hold it down.

Perfect for an active child

My son loves his sandals for running, climbing, and hiking. They hold up really well and match his dad’s and mine! We all love Xero shoes. I am wanting to buy my daughter a pair, but she’s a girly girl and doesn’t love the colors. Please make a pink, purple, mint or other color that might appeal to other little girls.

Awesome little kid sandals

Our kids couldn’t get past the toe thong in earth runners and we like the open toe/sock option in z-trails. They are simple enough for our 4 + 5 year olds to put on without help, and quick drying for creek play. Only complaint is they don’t come in small enough sizes for our toddler to wear.

Husband and I both have xero sandals and I have shoes and boots. Now both kids love their sandals!! Very well made and worth it. Wish it wasn't same price as mine, but I love supporting this company. Thanks for making a sandal that works really well!!!

Perfect kiddo UL Sandal!

We're outfitting the whole family with lighter gear and this shoe not only checked all the boxes upon review, but was a great fit and great sandal. Ultralight! Superior build quality. Nothing bad to say.

My kiddo loves them!

My Kid’s Favorite

I got these for my son after he sized out of another barefoot littler kids option. He had already been wearing the kids Prios for a while so it seemed like a smart idea. From the start they have become his favorite shoe. They look like an adult sandal, and work for casual and a sports look. The ground feel is great, he can run in them, and they are all around awesome!
