Comfortable, good grip, minor critique: durability Review by Johan
Rating
+ light, but comfortable.
+ surprisingly good grip.

- limited durability? After 1.5 year´s use the "extra friction" part of the sole is starting to wear out, probably due to my foot being slightly too much to the front.

I have worn these sandals for the past 1.5 years and I love them. I use them to go to work, but also to go hiking (carrying up to 20kg) or biking (1 month in morroco). They are a perfect approach shoe for climbing, since they are so light. The grip on granite slabs is surprisingly good. You feel the trail, but the sole is thick enough to walk on rough gravel or tree roots without much discomfort.

Sadly my heels are starting to wear through. I would love to wear these sandals for another 5 years but probably will have to get a new pair soon (which I will). Considering durability, it would be nice if there were a bit more of the hard rubber under the heel and less of the coloured softer rubber (Posted on 11/06/2018)
Fabulous Review by Windy

I just received my new sandals and the immediate impression is that these are nothing short of fabulous. Very comfy, super light and glued to my feet. The tubular stopping is very comfy and gives just enough. I'm so used to sandals slopping about as the soles are usually so stiff you can't tighten the straps enough without them hurting or restricting foot flex. I'm rarely so pleased with a product straight from the box but these are just fab. (Posted on 11/10/2017)
Fab sandals, fab customer service Review by Paula

After a winter in vivo's I put my Berkenstocks back on and realised that they were no longer something my feet felt happy in. On the advice of my running instructor I bought my first pair of Z-trails and hey presto, happy feet once more. I haven't actually been running in them, having used them for gardening, the school run and every other non running activity possible and love them. In fact I love them more than I ever loved my Berkenstocks.
Fantastic customer service too. (Posted on 22/09/2017)
I love my barefoot sandals! Review by aenkelkind

I live in Germany and the sandals arrived a week after I've placed my order. I've been testing them since (a few weeks now) in my daily life, on a holiday, and I even ran in them (I'm right now in a transformation process of becoming a barefoot runner and I'm running for about 12 years now up to half marathon). I have to admit that people's faces are priceless, when they realise someone's running barefoot or in sandals.

The sandals feel great, the grip is very good, I just had to slip in, adjusted the very convenient straps and they were perfect. Although I'm a female, I've chose the male width due to the templates I've tested out before ordering. I think it was the right decision.

It feels so great, when your toes are free and that's what they are in these sandals. Also the barefoot feeling is even in these--incomparision to the other Xero Shoes--thicker soles very good.

Nevertheless, I have to admit, that I developed a mark (not a blister) underneath my foot soles at the exact same spot during a city trip. But my wife had the same problem with her non-barefoot sandals. I've no idea, what exactly the problem was, maybe the heat, maybe that endless walking, maybe the dirt that sneaked underneath my foot sole. But since then the mark is no longer a problem.

To put it in a nutshell, I highly recommend these sandals. (Posted on 16/08/2017)

Great service! Review by Jana

I ordered "Xero Shoes - Umara Z-Trail". My order came within 5 days to Czech Republic so I could take my new shoes for my holiday to Spain where we were hiking quite hard trails...I was worried a bit because they look so "fragile and light" but no, they are brilliant and they last everything! I was very happy to have them there! I do barefoot for quite some time and couldn't find any good summer trekking shoes...so here they are. On top of that there is a great service and communication with Simon. Thanks for everything! I really appreciate it!

I will recommend it for everyone!

I have owned a pair of Z-Trails half a year now, so happy with them I ordered another pair in a different colour. A really cool item. Looks great, comfy and as far as I can say long lasting. Thank you. (Posted on 01/02/2017)
Excellent Review by scoptimusprime

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! (Posted on 22/12/2016)
So good Review by Jesus

Amazing sandals, very comfortable, beautiful, definitely one of the best sandals on the market. I strong recommended to purchase this sandals. As well, I have got Amuri Venture, Luna Sandals Oso and Ipanema from Grendene but this Umara Z-trail is the best. (Posted on 27/09/2016)
Amazing all-purpose running shoe Review by Edward
Rating
Having experimented with a wide range of shoes, I can confidently confirm that the Umara Z-Trails manage to find the perfect balance between providing excellent proprioception and ample protection for your foot.

I ran my first marathon in these shoes, just a couple of weeks after receiving them, because it was clear from the word go that they would be able to handle it. The marathon was a mix of roads, trails, and grass, and at no point was I concerned that the Z-Trails would let me down.

It takes time to build back up the foot and lower leg strength that conventional shoes have taken away from so many of us, but it's absolutely worth it. My recovery time after my first marathon was less than a day, and I will definitely be using these shoes in a number of upcoming races, including ultramarathons. Also, they don't smell bad.
