Daylite Hiker Fusion Women's SIZE GUIDE

We recommend ordering a half-size larger than your usual size.

FREE EXCHANGES: Most people find our size recommendation gives them a proper fit, but just in case, we have a free exchange program for all US orders.
*If you normally buy a Euro or UK Size, check out the handy conversion chart below.
NOTE: The Daylite Hiker has a wider toe box than conventional women's shoes. If your feet are particularly wide, consider the Men's Daylite Hiker Fusion. Just make sure to adjust the size by 1.5 (for example, a men's 8 is the same length as a women's 9.5).

Product Description

“These boots are AMAZING! I find myself wearing them all the time when I need closed
toe shoes even when I’m not hiking.”  – Kate

With its new lightweight, abrasion-resistant welded upper and grippier lugged sole, the Daylite Hiker Fusion is perfect for those hikes when a technical boot is more than you need.

WHAT’S NEW ABOUT THE DAYLITE HIKER FUSION?

PROTECTION THAT FEELS JUST RIGHT.

The Daylite Hiker Fusion features a new 10mm FeelTrue® sole that includes 3.5mm lugged dual chevron tread that has been re-designed to provide even more grip and control without sacrificing the ground feel and feedback you’d expect from Xero Shoes.

IMPROVED COMFORT AND DURABILITY.

We’ve tucked our Huarache-inspired tension straps under a sleek new welded upper so you can achieve a snug fit with even more splash and abrasion-resistance. At just 8.8 ounces each for a Women’s 7, the Daylite Hiker Fusion remains the perfect hiking boot for everyday adventures.

A CHIC, UPDATED AESTHETIC.

Available in black and a new subtle purple color, the new Daylite Hiker is a minimalist hiking boot that is stylish enough to pair with leggings, jeans, or khakis so you can wear it both on and off the trail.

WE MAKE BOOTS 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 Daylite Hiker Fusion.
 
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, 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.

It’s not waterproof because the tongue is independent of the rest of the upper, though the ballistic mesh material in the upper definitely makes this boot a little more rain-friendly than most other footwear. If you really want to keep the water at bay, check out our Xcursion — Xero’s first fully waterproof boot.

We use “men’s” and “women’s” as a matter of convention. We know there are some men who will fit better in the “women’s” shoe, and vice versa.

The “men’s” style is a bit wider across the toes and in the heel. The women’s, conversely, has a narrower heel and slightly less-wide toe box.

If you’re a man with a very thin foot, or a women with a wide foot, you may want to try the “other” style.

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.

After you purchase a gift certificate, you’ll be able to enter an email address for the recipient.

You could email it to yourself and forward it at a later time if you like.

You can also take the Gift Certificate code and send it to the recipient.

Please go to Xero Shoes Return Policy page to learn about our 45-day return policy.

Caring for your Daylite Hikers Fusions

To clean your Daylite Hikers Fusions, hand wash with warm water, mild soap and allow them to air dry.
We do not recommend putting the Daylite Hiker Fusion in the washing machine or dryer.

Comfy and lightweight

But sturdy. I ordered these in a size 8 (usually a size 7.5/8), and had to exchange them for an 8.5. When I first put the 8.5 on, I thought they were too small AGAIN, but I walked around my house a bit and they fit perfectly. I've only gone on one hike so far, but my feet (and the rest of me) felt great during and after.

Ely

I was a little disappointed and would like to try again. I ordered a half size up as instructed but they were far too big. The high top rubbed on my ankle a bit as well and the inserts did not go to the end of the shoe so there was a lip inside the shoe that I could feel with my toes. They are really nice feeling shoes and I love being closer to barefoot but it want quite right for me.

Too Short

I love other zero shoes I have bought but this one runs short at least for me.

My second pair

Loved them so much that I got another pair. Only issue is that they are slippery when it is wet outside. Step carefully!

Xero Shoes

Thank you for sharing your experience! It's great to hear you loved your Xero Shoes enough to get another pair. However, it's important to note the slipperiness on wet surfaces. Being cautious in such conditions is essential for safety. If you have any further feedback or questions, feel free to share!

Tight around the ankle

They are stiff around my ankle and have rubbed them. I’m hopeful they’ll soften. They are a bit tight. I didn’t quite understand the added .5 size up. I like the feel on the bottom. I’ll probably get another xero shoe in the summer but I think these will be great for Ohio winters. I loved my xero shoe—wore out the soul but needed more protection with all the concrete walking/stones on sidewalks were jarring. Thanks!
