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 5.5mm FeelTrue® sole and 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.

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.

Great fit!

I was really worried about the sizing of this. Because they recommend half a size up. But my old hikers were kinda too big for me, usable but still I wished they were more snug. Basically, I always felt like some Xero shoes are made half a size up, even if it's not mentioned. So I decided to gamble and just take my usual size, hoping that they will fit more snug. And it worked! They seem just right now! So glad I didn't go with the recommendation. xD (For reference, I've always worn EU size 38, it was always fine for me, and 37.5 was always too small. My foot isn't narrow, and I have a high arch.) Now, I've very excited to test these in the field! They seem like they should be perfect for hikes and such.

Hiking Here I Come!

I just received these boots, and here are my thoughts. First of all can we talk about the color? I purchased the Mulberry color and who knew Purple was a neutral? They are a soft almost grey purple and I suspect will go with anything. Next let's talk about the comfort. I can see myself hiking for hours in these boots, they are light weight, comfortable and my toes are not cramped even with socks on. I did order a 1/2 size up so I can wear a thicker sock if needed. I will be heading back out to Arizona in the next few months and have plans on hiking in the mountains, these will be the boots I will take. I have foot and ankle pain in my right foot, however with wearing any/all of my Xero shoes I do not experience any pain and I have tried every "orthopedic" type shoe and inserts on the market. I am so glad I decided to try them a couple of years ago. with the purchase of these Daylite Hike Fusions, this will be my 6th pair of Xero shoes and I can tell you, they will not be my last. Thank you!

Yeah, no blisters

I have 2 pair of these and have walked all around New York City and Denali and no blisters. They will work out your calves because you need to learn how to walk again but once you hit your stride, they are perfect. AND no break-in. I love these shoes.

snow boots, 33 mi. hiking, like a warm hug!

In Michigan, testing my product review sample from Xero was going to be a little tough. My husband and I decided to go on a five mile hike in the snow on a 10° day. I was really nervous that the boots wouldn't be warm enough for me, because I'm pretty wimpy when it comes to cold feet! I wore two pairs of socks, one of them wool, and I actually kept getting too hot and taking off my hat! Even though we had to step off the path to let fat tire bikers go by a number of times, my feet never got wet, so for snow, water resistant is good enough. I said after that day that the boots felt like a warm hug, and I'm also struck by the fact that I didn't really have to break them in, so to speak. A win! From there, we traveled to Sedona, Arizona, to really run the boots through their paces. 33 miles, 8,000 ft vertical elevation, and still nothing bad to say about these boots. They are showing their wear a little bit on the toe, but they served me well and my feet never felt fatigued (or at least not more than one would expect).  I even compared the treads to another hiker just to make sure they gripped as well as traditional hiking boots, and they were exactly the same. I always felt very secure with all the climbing and ups and downs. I appreciated being able to give my arches a little foot massage on a rock or log since the sole is so flexible. Ultimately I love the boots and continue to wear them as everyday shoes now that we are back home.  Check out more photos and videos of our trip by searching for the review at Kitchen Stewardship.

Perfect every day hiking shoe

Thanks to Xero Shoes who sent me an early pair to test, I got to test drive the Daylight Hiker. I do hour hikes nearly every day and a couple hours a couple of times a week. And, gotta say, this shoe has made me and my feet very happy. I do have to tie them just right so my ankles don't rub against the shoe, but that's not an issue once I wore them several times. They are the perfect shoe with just the right amount of boot for warmth and stability. If it's really bad out - rain, mud, snow - I'll wear the Xcursion as they are really waterproof and has a bit more of a stable sole. But for anything less, the Dayligh Hiker is my go-to walking shoe. I've been wearing Xero Shoes for years - I practically live in them, so I'm very used to zero drop shoes with very little cushioning. I prefer shoes this way because I've healed and transformed my feet. I wear correct toes and have no problem wearing them because of the wonderfully foot-shaped toe box. I have to have lots of space for my toes. Was so happy to throw out old clunky hiking boots I never wore because of their stiff, think soles and too much heel, and how much they crunched my toes.

Great Boot!

The Daylite Hiker Fusion is very lightweight and comfortable. They are water resistant and very durable. They are a nice looking style. They are comfortable around the ankle and are a good fit. Thank you Xero Shoes for sending me these to review!

Amazing Hiking Shoe!

This is my new go-to hiking shoe. In Florida, we have plenty of flat lands, but we also have root-covered levies and swampy areas. This boot is great for ALL of that. I like that the shoe is water-resistant, but my favorite thing is the traction the grippy sole offers. I'm the queen of rolling my ankle, but with these shoes, I feel so sure-footed! Great job, Xero Shoes!

Best of both worlds - Protective hiking boot with minimalist feel

I'm so glad I was able to receive a pair of these to review from Xero. While being supportive, they are still very light and flexible. I really like the zero drop sole. The tread is impressively grippy, and I feel confident with them in mud and slippery wet areas. They're water resistant, so will keep your feet dry from a quick splash if you step in a puddle. Also, they were instantly comfortable, and didn't require any breaking in to start wearing/hiking. You get the best of both worlds of a protective hiking boot, while still getting some of the minimalist feel.

LOVE this new minimalist hiker boot!

Like all Xero Shoes there is xero drop and who doesn't love a minimalist boot?! Even in the snow and ice, they had an amazing foot to ground feel, which I am such a big fan of. Sleek, slim, and even more lightweight than the Xcursion Fusion. These boots were great for a wide range of activities, from working in the garden to playing with the girls at the park and even at the hospital/clinic on the daily! Easy to lace up and easy/on off, which is a definite plus when it comes to a hiking boot. Thanks to Xero Shoes for sending me these shoes to review.
