"Love these shoes! I wear these from the gym, to work, to church, to the beach.
Great style and wearability!” – Larry K.
The Z-Trail EV offers the perfect combination of lightweight protection, natural flexibility, durability, versatility, style and affordability.
Is it the best barefoot hiking sandal? We think so!
LIGHTWEIGHT PROTECTION THAT FEELS JUST RIGHT.
The Z-Trail EV features an updated 10mm FeelLite™ sole with a middle layer of TrailFoam™ and an updated dual chevron lug pattern that offers the best combination of comfort, protection, and trail-ready traction while still allowing you to bend, move, flex, and feel the terrain beneath your feet.
At just 5.4 ounces each for a men’s size 9, the Z-Trail EV remains just as lightweight and versatile as the original best-selling Z-Trail.
MADE FROM EARTH & VEGAN-FRIENDLY MATERIALS.
The Z-Trail EV eliminates 70% of the unnecessary materials used in modern sports sandals – and because its soft, tubular quick-dry webbing is made from nylon sourced from recycled water bottles, it’s even better for the planet than before!
GOES ANYWHERE. GOES WITH ANYTHING.
Available in three colors, the new Z-Trail EV is ultra-capable yet stylish enough to accompany just about any look, so you can take anywhere from the trail to the boardwalk and everywhere in between.
WE MAKE SANDALS 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 Z-Trail EV.
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 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.
Ask yourself this question: Do your feet feel better at the end of the day than they did at the beginning?
If not, it’s because your shoes aren’t letting your feet do what’s NATURAL.
One quarter of the bones and joints in your entire body are in your feet. You have more nerve endings in your soles than anywhere but your fingertips and lips.
This means your feet are meant to bend, to move, to flex, and feel the world.
Comfort and performance come from letting your feet do what they’re meant to do, naturally.
Xero Shoes let them do that with what we call “3 Pillars of Natural”:
- Natural FIT — wide toe boxes let your toes spread and relax. A non-elevated (zero-drop) heel for proper posture.
- Natural MOTION — super flexible to let your feet bend and move naturally. Low-to-the-ground for balance and agility.
- Natural FEEL — the patented FeelTrue® soles give you just-right protection while still giving the ground feedback your brain needs for efficient, natural movement.
Plus they’re affordable, and so durable that they have a 5,000 mile sole warranty.
