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 women’s 7 is about 6.4 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.

Category: TerraFlex

With it’s grippy, lugged soles, the TerraFlex is built for running and hiking on trails.

That’s not to say you can’t walk, stroll, road run, Crossfit and much more… you can.

Put on your TerraFlex and Live Life Feet First!

Category: TerraFlex

This is one of my favorite features in the TerraFlex.

The huarache-sandal inspired heel strap can be used to hold your heel and ankle in place. Pull the straps through the ankle holes in the sole, and then lock them in place with the laces.

The instep straps can be used to secure your instep, which can free up your toes and forefoot to relax and function better. Use the laces to tighten or loosen them to your liking.

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.

Great barefoot trail shoes!

I’ve hiked in them, run in them, walked in them, jogged on the beach in them, and I really love them! I’ve only owned Xero sandals before these, but there will be more shoes like this in my future, I’m sure!

Comfy and grippy

I love my Mesa Trail shoes! I've been wearing them on trail runs at home and in the woods at the cottage - so much grip and ground feel. I'd tried the Merrell Trail Glove 5s and found the arch too high (which seemed super weird in "barefoot shoes" and was glad the Mesa Trails hold up to their name and reputation. I will say I found they run even smaller than the half size you're warned about in the description - I bought a full size larger than my Aqua Cloud sandals for the right fit. Looking forward to better Canadian returns in the future! Love my shoes!

Great!

I hiked 12 miles over Burro Pass in the Eastern Sierras with my new shoes. They were perfect. I am completely pleased with both pair, and would buy Phoenix in black this moment if they had my size! I see no reason to wear anything else. Borro Pass was the test, and they were just great. Thanks!

Happy Feet

These are my go to shoes. Been walking 8-10 miles a day on gravel and concrete for 2 months and my feet don’t hurt. No longer need to buy inserts since switching to this shoe. Thank you Xero shoes.

So comfortable

I wear these when I go on long hikes (which for me is a 10 - 12 miles round trip) because they provide a bit more cushioning then my Speed Force ones. The only downside of the Mesas is that they are a tad more slippery on wet rocks than the Speed Force. Not that I am aware of that slight drawback, I am more careful or simple remove them to cross a creek.

I love my shoes! No need to break in. Just put them on and go! I'm usually a 9w and sized half size up which is perfect. If you want a thick sock, size up. Xero shoes can help you with this. Super comfortable and great customer service!

So comfortable!!

I was wearing Brooks running ahoes and then stumbled upon Steve talking about why our shoes are coffins for our feet and I got it. Makes sense! Now I have two pairs of these, one in the greenish color, the other in black. Easy to put on, easy to tighten or loosen the laces and the laces do not come undone easily. I like feeling the dirt trails under my feet. I feel like I am giving my feet the job they have been craving. I plan on getting a pair of their sandals soon.
