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).
Also, check our Stores page. There may be a Xero Shoes dealer closer to you.

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).

My summer sandal

I have to admit, I was looking for the old Z-Trails, and I was a little apprehensive of this purchase at first, as the description says that due to the foam you should not leave these in direct sunlight or a hot car...however I have been wearing these sandals for a couple months and normal wearing on sunny 90+ degree days has not shown any signs of damage or deformaty. These sandals are very comfortable. I got the straps adjusted after the first day of wearing them, and I just open the Velcro on the heel strap to put them on/take them off so that I never have to worry about adjusting the main strap. There is a good "ground feel" while being thicker than the Z-Treks (which I also own), which makes these more comfortable for activities and light hikes. I've basically been living in these for the last month since the weather warmed up, and I plan to all summer!

Trail sandals

I love these sandals. I got them specifically for hiking in Hawaii with lots of mud and water. The tread were great and held on all the wet surfaces and my feet were comfortable the entire time.

Unreal comfort

These sandals have it all. The quality is 5 star and the comfort is incredible. They truly feel 'minimalist' while giving you confidence for hiking, biking or wherever you adventures take you.

Only problem is I don't want to wear anything else on my feet

I'm still not sure I really have the straps adjusted well and I also wonder if the velcro at the back will wear away (since that's how I take them off every evening), but otherwise I'm very happy with these sandals. I hadn't bought them for running but gave it a try and now I think I'd find it hard to run in anything else. In fact, I really don't want to wear anything else on my feet. Not sure what I'll do when winter comes, but I'll cross that bridge when I get to it. This is actually my second pair. The first pair broke during a game of tag in the yard with my kids. Customer service got in touch and kindly sent a replacement pair. Very happy they did.

Great Sandals!

I love these sandals! I'm not a fan of a toe strap, so they're perfect. The grip on the bottom is nice as well, while still allowing great groundfeel.

Great sandal, needs easy in-out

I really like this sandal, my first Xero. The only suggestion I have for improvement is using a clip buckle or something on the back strap to make the sandals easier to get into and out of. Also, I suspect the back strap Velcro will wear out well before the sandals do.
