Great warranty program Review by aenkelkind
Rating
After running round about 530 km in my Z-Trail Sandals the sole at the middle foot came off. I've sent pictures to Xero Shoes UK, quickly got a response, sent the sandals back to the UK, got a warranty discount code, ordered my new pair. I am really happy with this very fast exchange - all in all it took just a week. Thank you very much! (Posted on 28/11/2018)
Been on my feet for two weeks Review by Stephen

I have only just taken my Z-Trails off after wearing them almost constantly since I received them, and then I took them off to wear my new Terra Flex shoes. The Z-Trails were an upgrade from having worn a pair of Z-Treks for over a year. I liked this but gave them to my African boatman after a canoe trip in Namibia. He loved them, but then he had no shoes before those. The Z-Trail is a bit newer and I found the strap system worked better than the Z-Treks, plus they float too, a useful thing for river or beach use. But the main reason I chose the Z-Trail is the thicker sole. This is the decider for me. I've loved all my zero-drop shoes but I wanted a bit more comfort, and the Z-Trail sole is perfect for me. I can walk long distances on hard surfaces, go cycling in them and wear them to the gym, where light zero-drop shoes help me do my squats, deadlifts and other exercises that force the foot to work hard to balance, and also pull-ups and handstands where the light weight helps. I've only run short distances but have no doubt these are up to the job. The sole is nice and soft yet stiff enough for cycling and running, I think, and of course very packable too. A great backup shoe on a walk or trekking holiday. Top marks. (Posted on 07/09/2018)
Fantastic! Review by Jo

I'm so impressed with my Z-Trails. I used the sizing chart and received my sandals within a few days, which fit perfectly. They are the most comfortable sandals I've ever owned. It feels like I'm walking on clouds, which is remarkable considering the thin sole. Highly recommended! (Posted on 01/09/2018)
Great everyday sandals to get out and about Review by Riina
Rating
I found the process of finding the right size with given templates straightforward and easy. One of my feet is 0,5 cm longer than the other, so I have to choose bigger size usually, but it has not given me any issues. I'm not tripping over or anything. So even if it is a little bit longer, it's not a problem.

Ordering process was simple and quick. Just when I started to think when they would arrive, I got post notice.

The sandals are really comfortable and easy to adjust, the Z-strap specifically. It is little bit long for my foot as it is not too high, but the leftover strap is not bothering me so far.

I found the back strap to be very uncomfortable to use for getting the sandals on and off, but then found out (great customer service, btw) that I should actually use the Z-strap for that. Tried it out and it works great. Now I have to get the habit of using it.

Another thing I've noticed is that whenever I wear longer pants they tend to get stuck in the velcro of the back strap and it breaks the edge of the pants. Unfortunately with weather being like it is here in Estonia, I can't choose shorts every time I wear sandals.

All in all, great experience and I will definitely recommend these sandal to my fellow barefoot shoes enthusiasts as well. (Posted on 13/06/2018)
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
Rating
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!
