Product Description

Due to increased costs of materials, manufacturing, and shipping, the price of this product will be raised on September 1st.
Limited quantities are available before that date.

“Love these shoes! I wear these from the gym, to work, to church, to the beach.
Great style and wearability!”  – Larry K.

The Z-Trail EV offers the perfect combination of lightweight protection, natural flexibility, durability, versatility, style and affordability. 

Is it the best barefoot hiking sandal? We think so!

WHAT MAKES THE Z-TRAIL EV THE ULTIMATE SPORTS SANDAL?

LIGHTWEIGHT PROTECTION THAT FEELS JUST RIGHT.

The Z-Trail EV features an updated 11mm FeelLite™ sole with a middle layer of TrailFoam™ and an updated dual chevron lug pattern that offers the best combination of comfort, protection, and trail-ready traction while still allowing you to bend, move, flex, and feel the terrain beneath your feet. 

At just 5.4 ounces each for a men’s size 9, the Z-Trail EV remains just as lightweight and versatile as the original best-selling Z-Trail. 

MADE FROM EARTH & VEGAN-FRIENDLY MATERIALS.

The Z-Trail EV eliminates 70% of the unnecessary materials used in modern sports sandals – and because its soft, tubular quick-dry webbing is made from nylon sourced from recycled water bottles, it’s even better for the planet than before!

GOES ANYWHERE. GOES WITH ANYTHING.

Available in three colors, the new Z-Trail EV is ultra-capable yet stylish enough to accompany just about any look, so you can take anywhere from the trail to the boardwalk and everywhere in between. 

WE MAKE SANDALS SO COMFORTABLE, YOU’LL FORGET THEY’RE EVEN ON.

If your feet don’t feel as good at the end of the day as they did in the beginning, you haven’t tried the Z-Trail EV.
 
Life-changing comfort and superior performance come from letting your feet do what’s natural – bend, move, flex and feel.
 
All Xero Shoes feature a non-elevated “zero drop” heel for proper posture, low-to-the-ground design for perfect balance and agility, and a flexible sole that gives you “just right” protection so you can bend, move, flex, and safely Feel the World® in total comfort.

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).

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.

Caring for your Z-Trail EVs

Because of the TrailFoam™ in the Z-Trail, these need a bit of extra attention. Do not leave Z-Trail in hot cars or exposed to intense or direct sunlight. This could cause the TrailFoam™ to deform and is not covered by our warranty.

To clean your Z-Trail sandals, hand wash with warm water, mild soap and allow them to air dry (away from direct sunlight).

Quality, Fit and Comfort is Awesome

Bought these in prep for my 2.5 month excursion to Costa Rica. Consequently I haven’t had a chance to field test these yet as it’s winter in Canada! Having said this, just wearing them around the house, the fit and comfort is exception. Looking forward to putting them to the test hiking in the rain forests, the beaches and volcanic outcroppings. Given how light they are (250g @ size 8) and the fairly aggressive outer sole, I look forward to these being my “go to” camp/fording river shoes on my backpacking trips in the Canadian Rockies!

Great sandals and service from Xero

The sandals are really nice, they feel great on the soles of my feet, fit well, and are feather light. It was really easy to make purchase and the international delivery was fine given the current meta

Best sandals I’ve ever had

Love the sandals and how they feel on my feet. I used them every day until it got cold here and so I switched to my Xero sneakers for the winter.

They're a winner for me!

These are much more comfortable than flip flops for pacing around the house and yard, keeping my feet off the cold or wet floor and ground. Plus, I can wear socks if it's extra cold. Can't/won't try to do that with flip flops. These are great!

So far, so good!

Had these for a couple of weeks and they’ve been great so far. So light! So comfortable! Great ground feel and good traction. I’m curious to see how they hold up over time but for now they are terrific. My only beef (and it’s a very minor one) is that they take some work to get on and off, but so did the anchor-like Chacos they replaced.

Z-Trail

The Z-Trail sandals are the only footwear I use for summer running. I use them on asphalt, cement and many miles of gravel roads. I love the protection they offer and being able to keep my feet in the open air. I haven’t seen anything else that can compare. Thanks Xeroshoes!!

Service Review

My order got lost in delivery. Kelly from Xero responded to my email promptly and offered a replacement at no extra charge. My sandals are in transit now but I want to share that I'm quite happy with Xero's service. Looking forward to my first Xero experience and will share my feedback soon!

Love the Sandals, but a couple issues

I love these sandals - I have two pairs. However, on the first pair the tail of the strap was VERY long; I had to wrap it around the anchored ankle strap because it flopped around so much. The second pair the strap was just right. The only thing I'm not impressed with is the durability of the soles. I've nearly worn through the soles on my first pair in less than a year of wear (based on my step tracker, I'm estimating my actual step wear is under 1500 miles). It strikes me with these, as with a couple other models of Xero's that I own, the quality control is a bit hit or miss and usable sole wear will never reach 5000 miles on any of them. Still, I like them and have yet to find anything I like as much in the same price range.

A critique of the best sandals I have ever worn.

These are the best sandals I have ever put on my feet. There is no second place. The straps keep them secure, my toes are free, the soles are comfortable and flexible, nothing is too tight. Finding the proper size for my frankenfeet took some effort- the customer happiness team was accommodating with my exchanges and returns. I have worn these doing yardwork, walking around town, running, working out, walking the dogs, and on light hikes. They’re wonderful in every way. I recommend two improvements: First, the strap the holds the Velcro could be skived at the end which first passes through the retaining loop. This tapering would allow it to pass more easily through the loop, and extend the life of the straps. It would also make for a simpler way of putting the shoes on for someone who has lost finer motor skills. Second, it would simply be awesome if the soles of the sandals could be more slip resistant. During my hikes with them aI noticed they struggle on damp wood and with rocks that are more smoothly eroded by wind and water. They also have a tendency to “skip” a bit on different surfaces when I am walking the dogs- they lack the grip to deal with the pulling that happens on our outings. All in all, five stars!
