Product Description

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).

Great sandals! Run tad small.

Love the sandals. Suggest you order bigger size i.e. if you normally wear a mens 9 order either 9-1/2 or 10. Sandals well worth it!

almost perfect

sandal took me a couple of days to get used to but now are very comfortable and wear them daily. the only thing i have a problem with is the foot bed, it is very slippery when wet, so i wouldnt take these hiking close to rocky water. Also they also stink, and the foot bed holds the smell, I dont do anything strenuous during the day and but my feet do sweat during hot days and my sandals stink.

Love these sandals!

I immediately put these on and haven't wanted to take them off! They are easy to adjust for the perfect fit and I found them to be very comfortable. I purchased the men's Z-Trail as was recommended on the store site because I need a wider toe box and these fit great!

New Wearer

I really like the weight and minimal feel after transitioning from a VERY heavy competitors sandal. I do notice some soreness after long wear, but this is probably me getting used to minimalist footwear. Biggest draw for me was limiting the reliance on velcro as that fails over time based on experience with other sandals.

Soft and sturdy

It's my second pair. My first lasted for two and a half years running, walking and hiking in the mountains. They're soft on your sole and strong for your soul.

Good for running, not great for the beach

I've had a good run in these, and many good walks. I find when I'm walking on sand at the playground, or at the beach, lots of sand gets under my foot because the tread is so thin. I'm not really sure if this is something that could be fixed. Maybe a little lip around the whole shoe, like the one at the back? Still only a few weeks in

So far so good

It was different than any sandal that I’ve ever worn, but they feel and wear great. I can’t wait to cross my first river with them backpacking!

Stop shopping and buy these shoes

When I first looked into natural foot pattern shoes I was recovering from another ankle injury. These sandals for the bill. I have been walking in Florida where it’s really hot and these are a perfect fit to keep my feet cool. Customer service is great and they really do stand by there product for warranty. I would just get them and stop shopping around.

Love them !

They are exactly the feel I was looking for , not a squishy sole, super light and minimalist ; and Yes you can hike in those ! . After trying "the other guy’s” brand that weighs a ton 😉 the Z-trail EV are definitely the way to go !

Life changing shoes!

My second pair of Xero shoes! I bought these for summer trail hiking and couldn’t be more pleased. Lightweight, comfortable and plenty of sole protection. I decided to try Xero shoes because I wanted something that would pack well for vacation and because I was having trouble at work with my feet hurting by the end of the day. After a $300 podiatrist visit for a steroid injection, I was willing to try anything. I believe that wearing my Xero shoes has “fixed” my feet problems. My feet never get sore at work even though I still have to wear my “work” shoes. When I’m not at work, I’m in my Xero’s! I’m a very happy customer.
