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.

Perfect Footwear For Little Adventures

Could not wait for our three year old’s feet to get big enough to fit some Xero sandals. My daughter loves being able to put her sandals on by herself. I love that she can run, play, and climb everywhere from the beach, lake, park, and downtown in shoes that a healthy for her growing feet. - solid construction - good traction - easy on/off with Velcro - adjustable sizing - versatile utility - limited color options I wish that these were available in smaller sizes. We made her some DIY genesis sandals with the Xero kit to hold her over until her feet grew, but little kids do much better with Velcro than cord lacing.

Daughter loves them!

After trying so hard to find appropriate sandals for so long, I finally found these and decided to give them a try. My daughter loves them, can run, jump, climb, slide, bike and hike in them. They’re holding up really well and I plan on passing them down to her little brother when he’s ready. We will be back next year for a new size!

Great shoe! Wish the soles were thinner…

These shoes are exactly what I was looking for. Versatile sandals that are great for every day activities. When we go on vacation, I only bring these. If I had to change anything about them, I do wish the sole could be thinner. Otherwise, I highly recommend this pair of sandals.

Great kids shoes

These have been great adult shoes and now our daughter loves that she has sandals to match mine. She wears them everywhere. Great product. I only wish they went small enough for our 4 YO and 2 YO as well.

I’m So Glad These Exist

Most minimalist shoe companies don’t make kids stuff, which is a bummer, and also seemingly goes against their purported philosophies about how they’re striving to help us all out by correcting the wrongs inflicted by traditional shoe companies. Because if that were true, you’d think that they’d be eager to start at the beginning, with the shoes that we put on our children’s feet. Which is a long way of saying that I’m grateful that these sandals even exist. My five year old wears them everyday and loves them. They are comfortable and very light and easy to play in. I only wish Xero would make matching colors for adults and kids!

Great shoes for active children

My daughter loves these. She has wide feet, so I bought her these because they allow her feet to be free. 🙂 She absolutely loves running and jumping in them and doesn’t mind at all that they are not “pretty.” She can put them on so quickly too, and we were able to adjust them to fit her feet perfectly. I have ordered an adult pair for my teenage daughter who has narrow feet and plantar fasciitis and has been noticing clear benefits from her own “barefoot” shoes.

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)
