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

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).

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!

Five Stars for Xero Shoes

It has been a couple months since I purchased the Xero DayLite Hiker EV. The website suggested buying a size larger than usually worn, which I did, however the boots were too big and I returned them for an exchange in my usual size 12. The turn around time to get the exchange to me was very quick. It seems Xero shoes has very good customer service. The boots fit great and are extremely comfortable. I have waited to post a review because I wanted to make sure of the quality and durability of construction. In the last month and a half I have hiked close to 50 miles of trails in the Hoosier National Forrest. The DayLite Hiker EV have held up spectacularly. I am very happy with all aspects of this product and would highly recommend them.

Perfect fit, extremely comfortable.

I wil be sending back the previous order for these boots - ordered the wrong size - but the new ones arrived yesterday and I'm thrilled with them! Perfect fit and extremely comfortable. These, and the running shoes I ordered in August: definitely the most comfortable footwear I've ever purchased. I'm officially a Xero fan!

Awesome shoes

Great shoes (I bought three pairs) the fit was perfect. Very comfortable. The laces are designed in such a way that they don't come undone - nice little touch that most shoe co don't care about. Attention to detail, that's what I like to see

Initial sizing issues

I like these shoes, however it took 2 tries to get the correct size. According to the website, one should order a size up. I did so, and the the shoes that arrived were far too large, even with the recommended space in the toe box. So I sent them back for another pair, and these were too small. I sent these back and ordered my normal size and they fit correctly. So after a month or so after my original order, I finally got to try them for real (not just in the house). Went for a few walks, and a jog last night, definitely like these shoes. The reason I gave 4 stars is because of the sizing issues, but the folks at Xero were very helpful on the phone trying to get my order sorted out.

I love all the Xero

I love all the Xero shoes I own. The Hiker EV started to fall apart on me, but the staff at Xero was very helpful in getting a replacement pair. I am a satisfied customer.

Great shoes

I really like my shoes, they offer a barefoot solution for the colder months! The only reason I’m not giving them 5 is the shipping process was a bit of hassle and expensive. Plus I know there is size guide but a simple line like, our shoes run on the small side (my personal experience) would be useful in my opinion.

DayLite Hiker EV-Men

First time wearing a Xero product. Have tried other zero drop shoes, but you have found the right combination of feel for the earth under your feet and comfort. Can't recommend this shoe enough. Up hear in Canada we are headed for the cold winter weather, so will be looking for a Xero product to get me through to spring.
