Product Description

You’ll practically fly over your next trail when you’re wearing the Mesa Trail.

We made the Mesa Trail with lightweight, barefoot-friendly, minimalist running in mind. But we know you’ll wear it off-trail too.

You’ll look great when you pair the Mesa Trail with your favorite jeans, and is comfortable enough for all-day wear.

The breathable, mesh upper gets rid of the weight and keeps you cool. The moisture-wicking lining helps keep you dry. The welded protective covering of the adjustable midfoot and instep straps adds durability. The lugged, dual-chevron tread gives you sure-footed traction. And the “hidden” 3mm TrailFoam™ layer adds the right amount of protection and comfort.

Why you’ll love the Mesa Trail

  • Natural FIT — a wide toe box lets your toes spread, splay, relax, and function naturally.
  • Natural MOTION — the Mesa Trail is flexible enough to let your feet bend, move, and flex the way, well, that feet are supposed to. The “XERO-drop” design (non-elevated heel) allows for proper posture, and it’s built low to the ground for balance and agility.
  • Natural FEEL — the Mesa Trail has a 5.5mm FeelTrue® rubber sole, including the 3.5mm lugs to give you the right combination of protection and grip, plus ground-feedback so your brain knows how to move your body optimally. Also, you can remove the 3.5mm insole, for a closer-to-barefoot experience that lets you Feel The World®.
  • Light weight — so light, in fact, you could forget you have them on. A men’s 9 is about 7.6 ounces (each).
  • Huarache-inspired design — the adjustable instep and midfoot straps are not just eye-catching but functional, giving you a secure and comfortable fit.
  • Vegan-friendly materials — No animal products are used in the Mesa Trail
  • 5,000 mile sole warranty — like all Xero Shoes, the Mesa Trail is backed with a 24 month manufacturer’s warranty and a 5,000 mile sole warranty.

Caring for your Mesa Trails

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

Categories: Mesa Trail, TerraFlex

The TerraFlex is our first shoe designed for trails. With a rugged, stitched upper, it’s great for running and hiking.

The Mesa Trail is made more specifically for trail running, with a lightweight breathable mesh upper, extra moisture wicking with the “37.5” lining, and a protective welded covering for the adjustable midfoot and instep straps.

Both shoes have a grippy, lugged, dual-chevron tread, and a 3mm TrailFoam layer (“hiding” in the outsole) for just-right protection and comfort.

Pure Awesome

So I've got about 75 miles or so in these since getting them and they're flippin' awesome! They're super light, super comfortable and I can feel every bit of the ground beneath me. I'll be buying these again when I need them. Go give them a shot, you won't regret it!

Great Shoe!

The Mesa Trail is light, flexible and enjoyable to wear on trails. I don’t suggest using it on extremely rocky trails, but it will be good for most trails where one can step around sharp rocks.

Dependable All-Terrain Track Shoes

I am very satisfied with the natural fit of these shoes. They’re my overall shoes now over the Prios. The dark green is an amazing color that goes with most all of my outfits. They’re a right amount of sturdy and light. However, the support fails a bit at the heel of the foot. I use an alternative step, depending on my pace, between heel and balls of my feet. It feels the best walking/jogging on the front part. But when I am walking at a slow pace I use my heels and that’s where they’re most uncomfortable. A quick shoutout to Amber in CS, she was the best in helping me fit these.

Excellent option as a golf shoe

Ordered this because I was so happy with the HFS that I had previously purchased. I wanted to try these as golf shoes. I have struggled to find comfortable shoes to golf in as they all feel so stiff. Finally got a chance to play in these the past weekend and was pleased with the grip they provided during my swing. The biggest surprise was the watertightness. It rained for most of the round and the grass was wet throughout the course, but my feet stayed dry and comfortable.

Great everyday shoe.

I wear a pair of these for work, and another pair for hiking and running. They provide enough protection from sharp objects, but allow great ground feel and toe splay. They are also comfy enough I don't even wear socks most of the time. I will definitely be buying more of these if I ever wear them out.

Comfort and function for the trail

I have a 10.5 in the HFS and ended up exchanging the Mesa for an 11 after ordering a 10.5. Fit was similar to the HFS, but the Mesa toe cap is harder rubber for rough terrain, and would have caused blisters and discomfort where the soft HFS toe cap can afford to be a little more snug. As for the shoes, I have only hiked in them (as my long COVID has prevented me from doing any runs yet), but they felt very comfortable while being functional and sturdy enough for the hiking trail. I have only worn hiking boots in the woods prior to these and the lighter weight and flexibility of the Mesa was a breath of fresh air. I don’t think I’ll ever go back to boots. These have also become my go-to for playing in the backyard with the kids. If I’m outdoors, there’s really nothing more comfortable.

I like the shoes, but why the delay in shipping

I like them, but it took an inordinate amount of time to receive the shoes. I'm in Hawaii, but it IS part of the USA. Amazon packages get here within 3-4 days usually.

Very light and comfortable

I used these for easy walks at first, and then I transitioned to short hikes. I found that using the last lace holes helps with stability, and it takes getting used to the stickiness of the rubber. Have to lift my foot slightly higher than you'd think to not rub and stick to rocks.
