EV Daylite Hiker Women's SIZE GUIDE

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

Note: The Women's EV DayLite Hiker was previously regarded as a full size small. We changed the sizing by a half-size as of September 19th, 2019. If you had ordered a pair before that date, a half-size down with our current sizing should fit you now.
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, UK or JP Size, check out the handy conversion chart below.
NOTE: The EV Daylite Hiker has a wider toe box than conventional women's shoes. If your feet are particularly wide, consider the Men's Daylite Hiker. 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

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

  • Great protection with a ballistic mesh upper and Tough Tech toe bumper
  • LIGHT — Only 9.2 ounces (each) for a Women’s Size 7
  • Huarache-inspired heel strap to hold your foot securely
  • Adjustable instep straps for perfect tension
  • Dual-chevron tread for great grip
  • Thin and flexible FeelTrue® sole
  • Removable sockliner (insole) if you want a more barefoot feeling
  • Vegan-friendly materials

We know from experience that whatever we say here, people will ignore and they’ll do whatever they want in their DayLite Hiker.

After all, we know of people who run marathons in their Hana and Lena, and those are described as “casual” shoes. 😉

We designed the DayLite Hiker for the kind of journeys that most people take, most of the time — day hikes, non-technical trails, and even just walking around. While it’s not a “technical” hiker, the flexible FeelTrue® sole will let it tackle more than just a stroll. Check out the reviews to see what others are doing in their DayLite Hikers.

Like all our shoes, the DayLite Hiker has a “huarache-inspired” heel strap. You can tighten or loosen that to give a bit more (or less) support around your heel, which can hold your foot in place better.

And like the Prio, the DayLite Hiker has independently adjustable instep straps. You can tighten the laces going through those “inverted V” straps to cinch the boot around your instep. This can also help keep your foot secure. Securing your instep (but not TOO much) can actually let your toes relax even more… experiment with the tension of these straps and see what you experience.

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.

Sizing, as you’ve probably experienced, is different between brands. You may wear a 9 from one company and then anything between an 8 and 10 from another company.

Luckily, if the size you get is incorrect, we do have a free exchange policy.

The Daylite Hiker runs small. We recommend choosing 1 full size larger than your usual size.

If you already have a pair of Prio, the DayLite Hiker fits similarly. If you have the Hana or Lena, you’ll probably want to go up 1/2 a size because of the difference in performance vs. casual shoes.

If you plan to wear thick socks with the DayLite Hiker, you may want to add 1/2 a size to accommodate that.
We have sizing guidelines on this page and our main sizing page but keep in mind that these are “guidelines.” People like their shoes to fit differently — some like their toes right up at the edge, others like to have 1/4″-1/2″ of extra space in front of their toes.

Using the guidelines we give, again, if you’re really close to the next 1/2 size up, we’d recommend starting with that.

Did I mention our exchange policy? 😉

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.

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.

Wish I could give this a million stars

Seriously love these shoes. Long story short: these shoes basically force me to walk the way I WANT to walk but can’t in other shoes! I have a background in dance, and it feels unnatural to me to walk in shoes that are stiff and heel-heavy. My legs feel totally different than they normally do after doing a routine hike, and I can really feel my feet try to curve and grab onto rocks! Thought it was too good to be true, but I’m 100% sold. I may take these on my thru hike of the Appalachian Trail this summer if my tests continue to prove them true.

Comfortable walking boot

I really like these boots, they are comfortable and light. I wear them with waterproof socks when the weather or wet ground demand. I often walk on beaches so this is a must.

Light and comfy!

These shoes are so comfortable that I forget I'm actually wearing hiking boots. I wear them often during my normal day because they give me foot support without any pain. I highly recommend them to everyone!

❤️ my Daylite Hikers!

I ❤️ My Daylite Hikers! These are the best hiking boots I have ever worn! They are comfortable, have just the right amount of wiggling room for my toes yet are able to hug my narrowish feet without any uncomfortable pressure. I find them warm and cozy for my winter walks as well as for warmer weather. My only regret is that I did not find Xero a long time ago! I am sold on Xero’s Daylite Hiker and will definitely purchase them again! ❤️
