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
  • 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 fully waterproof — the tongue is independent of the rest of the upper — but the ballistic mesh upper is HIGHLY water resistant. Janice (here in our office) had to pour a bottle of water over her DayLite Hiker to remove… uh… something unpleasant… and her socks stayed nice and dry.

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.

Caring for your Daylite Hikers

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

No cushion behind heel

I hope these eventually work out for me. I haven't yet figured out the necessary sock + lacing combo that will allow my heels to avoid blisters. Unlike their other shoes (Prio, TerraFlex), these don't have any padding/cushion behind the bony part of the heel. The ankle support is well-padded. The sole feels amazing. I was able to wear my other Xeros immediately with hardly any break-in period, but these are proving to be a challenge. I hope it works out, because being able to really use my toes while hiking is such a great feeling.

Amazing product, unbeatable costumer service

These shoes are insanely comfortable and human centered. I had a tear in one of the tension loops and Xero sent me a new pair (exceptional costumer service). While waiting for my new Xero shoes to arrive I had to wear an alternate pair of run of the mill hiking boots and my mind was blown. I couldn't believe how great i felt after a six mile hike in the Xero shoes and after a short jaunt in the other boots, my hips and back were already aching. I will never buy an another pair of hikers unless they're made by XERO. Love these hikers!!!!

Great shoes, but coming apart

I like these shoes so much. My feet feel like they're been set free to do the work they're supposed to, and my whole body feels the results with better movement and less exhaustion. However, after about two weeks (40 miles or so) they are unraveling! I'm so disappointed. My hikes are not extreme, not rock climbing or scrambling, no water logging. I'm hoping I just got a bad pair, because it seems Xero Shoes really cares about their product.

I have been looking for

I have been looking for a pair of vegan, zero drop hiking boots for a long time. Since these run small, I got a full size up, as recommended, and they fit perfectly! They are comfortable yet sturdy. Very happy with these boots!

Great!

I love my Xero DayLite Hikers! The advice to get 1 size larger than normal is accurate, they fit perfectly now and I'm looking forward to wearing them on my roundtrip to India and Nepal.

Zero shoes

I wore them out of the box to play disc golf on a steep mountain course. They felt like I had worn them for years. Very comfortable.

I cannot wait

The DayLite Hiker EV shoes look great - I love the colors - and they feel very comfortable i.e. I thought I had no shoes on. Summer is heating up at the moment in France but I cannot wait to put them on once the temperature has cooled down. Thanks Xero Team for producing & selling these shoes!

Free toes!

I used to get blisters between my toes from my running and hiking boots, but not with these! My toes have space to spread and those blisters are finally healing!
