Product Description

“I went on a two week road trip and these were the only shoes I wore.”  – Andrew T.

The comfort of a sport sandal upper, the lightweight, barely-there feel of a packable travel sandal. This combo lets the Z-Trek do it all.

Z-Trek Sport Sandal by Xero Shoes - barefoot inspired sandals

WHY WILL THE THE Z-TREK BE YOUR  FAVORITE ALL-PURPOSE SANDAL?

COMFORT AND SECURITY.

The Z-Trek is an upgrade to the popular original, now with smooth, tubular nylon straps made from rPET recycled materials. The fully adjustable strap system lets you fine tune your fit, giving you the security you love in Xero Shoes.

The 6.0 mm FeelTrue® sole gives fantastic ground feel while still protecting you from the elements, while the dual direction chevron tread provides you confident grip. All that and they still only weigh 7.2 ounces each for a men’s 9.

NATURAL FEELING. NATURAL STYLE.

The Z-trek is stylish and available in multiple colors. They’ll confidently take you from jogging at the beach, to your favorite water-sport, to a stroll through town, all while enjoying the benefits of natural freedom.

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-Trek.


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 wider, foot-shaped toe box that lets your toes spread and relax, a non-elevated “zero drop” heel for proper posture, a 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.

You sure can. Just slide the webbing through the slots on the outside of the sole to get the tension you like.

Note: A lot of our customers report that they like the toe strap looser than they thought they would. Experiment and see what you like best.

Categories: Sizing, Z-Trek

Use the templates that are linked on this page (next to where you select the size, and in the product description).

NOTE: Please measure your foot and/or use the templates. Sandal size is very often different than shoe size.

Category: Z-Trek

Pretty much anything you want. Take a walk on the beach, a hike in the woods, hang out with friend, stroll around the campsite, approach a climb, paddle a canoe, run a marathon…

I’m not sure that Z-Trek, or any sandal for that matter, is right for lateral motion sports, like tennis or basketball.

So, use your common sense and HAVE FUN!

Categories: Sizing, Z-Trek

There are 54 different foot shapes. And no product will fit everyone perfectly.

If you’re not sure you have the right size, drop us an email with some photos (top, side, back) and we’ll give you our opinion.

If you have the right size but the Z-Trek shape doesn’t quite match your foot… CUT IT! That’s right, you can trim the Z-Trek with a good pair of kitchen scissors. To finish the edge cleanly, try some sandpaper. Don’t cut off too much, too soon, though. Take off just a bit, and then see how you did. Remember, you can’t UN-cut.

If you’re a man with a very narrow foot, you may be better in the “women’s” style. Conversely, women with very wide feet, or over a size 10, should check the sizing for he “men’s” products.

Category: Z-Trek

The women’s Z-Trek is a bit narrower, and the webbing is 4mm thinner.

So if you have a narrow foot, whether you’re a man or woman, you may want to check the “women’s” sizing templates and see how those work for you. Similarly, if you have a wider foot, regardless of your gender, check out the “men’s” templates.

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.

Awesome sandals!

I wear these sandals a lot while I’m out and about as it’s pretty hot in Miami, they are very comfortable and light weight. I don’t like sandals that go between my toes so these are great, they are also very secure to my foot without being constricting on my movement. Very happy with this purchase!

Z-Trek Lightweight Sport Sandal

I prefer to be barefoot but when I go out I wear my Z-Trek sandals. These are my replacement sandals as I wore out my first pair.

Loveed while they lasted

I loved wlaking/hiking in my Xero sandels. However, with less than 500 miles on them the sole broke where it attached to the strap. I suggest making that part of the sole a little stronger.

Hi Jeremy,

We've had people in the same pair of Z-Treks for almost 3 years... so what happened to you is clearly a manufacturing glitch (sadly, no manufacturing process is 100% perfect).

Contact our Customer Happiness Team directly at either [email protected] or 303.447.3100 and they'll help you out.

Almost perfect

Well, I didn't wear all the way through the soles on my last pair, but I definitely got my money's worth out of them. That being said, I was slightly disappointed when I received my new pair and the same hard plastic clip that eventually got brittle and failed on my last pair, was not what appeared to have been replaced by a metal one as it looked in the pictures online. Not a biggie overall, I may have to get a new pair again next year, but not before I get my money's worth out of this pair.

Best sandals ever!

These are by far my favorite Xero product. They are comfy, easy to wear, and provide an extraordinary feel when waking and running. I never have felt something quite like it before in sandals.

Best sandle ever

Amazing product! I wear them all the time, whether it be for hiking, camping, or around town. They've been sturdy, yet are exactly what minimalism means. They protect my feet but allows them to do what they were intended to.
