Xero Shoes Umara Z-Trail

Xero Shoes Umara Z-Trail

Product Review (submitted on 22 December 2016):
The Umara Z-Trails arrived yesterday and I decided to take them out for a short test run the same day due to a cut on one of my toes from the seams in my Vibram Fivefingers. I wore the Z-trails with socks due to the cold but 10 blister-free miles later I'll be binning the Vibrams. Absolutely superb.

One point to note is that the strap tension over the toes needs to be adjusted without your foot in the sandal since there's a lot of friction between the strap and the rubber bar on the side of the sole. If you attempt to adjust it whilst wearing it there would be a danger of breaking the rubber bar. Once adjusted the sandals don't move or slide even at quite a fast running pace.

The Z-Trail is an incredibly effective design for such a simple product. Highly recommended!
