Product Description

Most hikes don’t need a big, heavy, technical hiking boot.

And most hiking boots don’t let your foot bend, move, flex and feel the world… until the DayLite Hiker EV

“EV” is short for “EVolution” because this version of the DayLite Hiker is a new and improved version of the original. Plus it’s designed to let your foot move and function the way it’s supposed to.

Perfect for day hikes and casual wear, the DayLite Hiker EV is built with our foot-first design and natural movement philosophy.

  1. Natural FIT – Wide, anatomically correct toe boxes let your toes spread and relax, plus a non-elevated, “zero-drop” heel for proper posture.
  2. Natural MOTION – Your feet are supposed to bend and flex and move. The DayLite Hiker is super flexible to let them do that. The low-to-the-ground design is perfect for balance and agility.
  3. Natural FEEL – Your feet are supposed to FEEL the world. Our patented FeelTrue® soles give you just-right protection while also giving you the ground feedback that your brain and body want.
  4. Lightweight – You don’t want your footwear to weigh you down
  5. 5,000-mile sole warranty

What’s changed compared to the original DayLite Hiker?

  • More grip with a lugged chevron tread – (4.5mm FeelTrue® sole base plus 3.5mm lugs)
  • More durable, abrasion resistant upper mesh
  • More durable Tough Tech toe bumper
  • Wet/Dry friendly side “foxing”
  • Easy on/off lacing hooks

More reasons you’ll love the DayLite Hiker

  • LIGHT — Only 11.2 ounces (each) for a Men’s Size 9
  • Huarache-inspired heel strap to hold your foot securely
  • Adjustable instep straps for perfect tension
  • Thin and flexible FeelTrue® sole
  • Removable sockliner (insole) if you want a more barefoot feeling
  • Vegan-friendly materials

Best barefoot boots!!

I am VERY HAPPY with those boots! I tried 2 other minimalist boots before buying this pair and ohhh boy they are on a whole other level! I took them 1 size larger than my shoe size and they fit perfectly. They really have the barefoot feel it's incredible! I use them as winter boots and they are warm enough : I just tested them with normal socks at -15°C (5°F) and I could feel the cold a little bit but honestly I enjoy that! I assume that with warm socks, they will do the job for the colder days up here in Canada!

Too much shoe

I purchased these because they were rated Correct Toes Approved and I needed something more water resistant for extended periods in cold wet weather. They do the job, but are much stiffer and more narrow than I expected for a "barefoot" shoe. I removed the insert but still have rubbing against outer toes when wearing Correct Toes. Also the soles are not completely flat (like the running sandals), they have a slight molded shape. I think for someone transitioning from conventional shoes these would be a huge relief, but as someone accustomed to being barefoot 95% of the time and at most wearing soft moccasins, they feel pretty restrictive.

I love my Xero Shoes and so will you.

Go ahead and place that order. Trust me.......These will be my second pair of Daylite Hikers and I love love love my Xero shoes, they are all i wear now. The new design has some noticeable changes that i'm not to crazy about, and some i like. Maybe its just me but the souls seem to be a bit thicker and a little less flexible than my last pair. I did notice that the lug pattern on the bottom is a bit larger and more pronounced which will hopefully help with the traction issue on wet floors. The fit is more true to size now which is awesome. Since i have been wearing Xero shoes I no longer have any pain from the planters fasciitis and I no longer get ingrown toe nails. If you suffer from any such issues I highly recommend you try Xero shoes, I can almost guarantee those issues will disappear........Now if they will just come out with an all leather shoe with a leather soul.

Only boots that worked

I work a laborious outdoor job where I am on my feet and different terrain constantly. Every boot whether flat sole (which still has a raise inside the boot) makes my knee and hip hurt. These boots allow me to be flat at God intended and I feel xero pain all day everyday thanks to these boots

Diggin these shoes

Super light, comfy & stylish shoes. Doesn't seem like the best quality materials (they feel a little cheap), but they are pretty affordable especially when on clearance!

DayLite Hiker EV-Men

I am very pleased with this product. The sizing was correct and the hiker is very comfortable. So far I have not used this shoe in the recently fallen snow, but have hike/walked multiple days when the way was clear. Thumbs up for this shoe.

just awesome

Really wasn’t sure what to expect. I had tried on Xero shoes this past summer, and thought they were cool but I didn’t have any experience with the product. I made the switch to zero drop running shoes last year and was looking for some light weight hiking boot that didn’t have a lot of cushion and didn’t have a big offset. Researched the Xero line and made a purchase over the holiday. Everything about this boot easily exceeds what I had expected. Obviously I was a but unsure how they would fit, the quality, the fit and everything in-between. Very pleasantly surprised and impressed. These guys were instantly comfortable and the fit was amazing. I ran a rocky 11 mile trail run this morning and my feet were tired. I was kind of expecting to take it easy for the rest of the day, but once I put on my groovy new boots, it was like my feet were instantly happy. So, yeah……. Great boots, great fit, great product. Thanks guys…...

Daylite hikers

I overall like the daylite hikers. I started with the original model and was disappointed with the durability of the shoes. But I loved the ground feel of them. I got a pair of the upgraded daylite hikers and at first I was impressed with the overall feel other then the sole. I liked the extended lugs for better traction but was not impressed with the soles overall sensitivity to the ground like the original. But its not a huge difference compared to the original. But the upgraded model has been a much better shoe then the original. Alot more durable and they are overall more comfortable then the old version. I wear mine everyday. They are decent hiking shoes and if I could I'd wear them all 4 seasons hiking. But unfortunately they aren't waterproof and wearing spikes on them is uncomfortable. But a waterproof version of the daylite hikers would be awesome. Overall I lime these shoes and would recommend them.
