Injured foot no longer sore in TerraFlex, was able to long distance hike Review by Gabor
Rating
Here's my story wearing the TerraFlex Trail Running and Hiking Shoe.

Since the fall of 2017 I have a sore right lower leg and foot, specifically the tibalis posterior and the so called "plantar fasciitis" hurts me. (Which are due to a short right leg and overexertion on a 70mi hiking trip - though a 82mi walk did not hurt it earlier).

I tried a lot to cure it - resting, night splint, SMR and stretching but none of these helped really, even my regular shoes and slippers started to hurt. I decided to

Probably I need to tend to a more lowcarb diet to get to the root cause.
But this month I decided to try to load it to see whether I can still run and later prepare for a marathon or an ironman which are my favorite sport.

I did one 2 hour hike and a 2 hour ride on my road bike in preparation for a hiking trail of 35mi with 9000ft elevation change over 12,5 hours.

On the morning I though about putting my "regular" drop running shoes but they often hurt on the outside of my sole, the lateral band. So I went for the Xero TerraFlex, the pair I had been using since July last year, on a daily basis, the only pair of shoes that I had not had any pain while wearing for casual wear (with negligible wear since last year).

Amazingly, I could do the whole distance without any irregular pain and over-injury. I tried to avoid shard rock to step on. The shoes were grippy and comfortable and even held in stick mud, too.

I cleaned them with plenty of water the next day and they were really soaking wet. I expected them to dry within 3+ days in the damp weather. Surprisingly they dried overnight!

Thank you Lena and Steven. I'm looking forward to buying another pair, soon. (Posted on 21/04/2019)
Absolutely delighted, completely hooked Review by Ant

I started running seriously again 6 months ago, after a long gap, and pretty soon I had the dreaded runner's knee. A local running shop analysed my gait and sent me away with a (very) expensive pair of motion control shoes. They didn't help. And they were horrible to run in. Eventually, via the book Born to Run, I came very late to the barefoot/minimalist running movement and purchased the Terraflex shoes 2 weeks ago. I've run in them almost daily since they arrived. To say I'm delighted is an understatement. I love the feel of running beside the river Thames, sensing the ground underfoot and adjusting my balance naturally. My tendency to land on my heels has vanished, and with it, all the shock that was hurting my knees. I can feel my ankles and arches getting stronger by the day. And my 10k times are already as fast in these shoes with my new running technique as they were in my old bouncy trainers. I'm hooked on minimalist running, and on these Xero shoes. If anyone else is interested, I found the YouTube video by Dr Cucuzzella on natural running technique to be invaluable in adjusting my running style to suit these shoes. (Posted on 20/03/2019)
My feet are alive! Review by Ben
Rating
Still getting used to the way of walking in these but I am really enjoying it. I bought these shoes for their wider toe box, they are so much more comfortable that any footwear I have worn except for my beloved slippers. After a few months of wearing these I can feel some changes in my feet, they feel less stiff and more relaxed. Walking in them is so different from typical shoes, I can feel the ground so well through the soles and I have the sensation of wanting to break into a run. I'm thinking about buying a different pair for smarter occasions. (Posted on 21/01/2019)
I love these shoes! Review by William

but oh how I wish they were waterproof. Apart from that, they are the first pair of properly fitting shoes I've had for about 4 years. I wear them to walk the dog in the morning, all day at work then out for a run when I get home. I've worn them on 2 camping and walking holidays. They're also lovely to drive in!
They're the perfect shoe for doing agility with my dog due to the amount of sharp turns, twisting and sudden sprinting. They really do help you balance and I feel much quicker when turning and more confident that I'm not going to twist my ankle or slip over.
I usually favour a boot style for every day wear and walking so I'll be getting myself a pair of the daylite hikers soon too and relegate these to running and summer wear.
It does state on the page that they're not waterproof and I wasn't expecting them to be and they do dry out quite quickly on top. However if you get the soles wet that takes a couple of days to get dry. I was a little disappointed to find the tops got soaked just walking around our campsite one morning and I couldn't wear them out for the day so I had to resort to my boots but they were dry enough by the next day to go for a good trek in. By our next camping trip I'd learnt to wear my boots until the morning dew had cleared.
If Xero shoes brought out a fully waterproof design I would be investing in a pair or two for sure. I don't suppose theres any chance of a pair of Xero Wellies? XD (Posted on 25/09/2018)
Perfect trail shoe Review by Kellee
Rating
I've had the Terraflex for about 3 months now and they are as close to perfect as a trail shoe can be - roomy toebox in both width and height, a secure lacing system and a very flexible sole. After a couple of hundred miles they show absolutely no wear and tear. I am a woman but ordered the men's size for more width. The only slight negative is the time it takes to dry them after running through water. (Posted on 14/06/2018)

Excellent Hiking Shoe Review by Thomas
Rating
TerraFlex provides surprisingly good grip and ground feel. I'm not sure how they manage to achieve both but I'm thrilled that they do. Fit and comfort were excellent right out of the box. The shoe's shape holds the foot securely while still offering plenty of toe room. I bought these for trails but they are quickly becoming my daily "around town" shoes as well. (Posted on 23/05/2018)
Great...in the dry, not for wet/muddy downhills Review by J A
Rating
I have had DIY Xero sandals since about 2012, so I was very keen when they produced a trail specific shoe; however, I should have looked more carefully at the sole unit. It didn't occur to me until I was lying on my back in the mud/wet. Now, I know magazines like Trail Runner said these were excellent in the mud and snow, but I struggle to believe this, especially on the downhills as there is little/no grip at all on the heel and the slightest bit of mud, or even wet grass on a steep-ish downhill can send you sliding. I run on local trails and venture off-trail regularly and (this being the NW of Scotland in the UK) it is more often wet and muddy and there is little flat ground. I can't imagine why there is a large pad of rubber with so little grip on the heel?

Amazing running shoes for cross or trails Review by Jesus
Rating
First of all, thank you very much for the speed of the shipment. I bought them on Monday 12/03/2018 and I received them on Wednesday 14/03/2018 two days nothing more. Very well packaged and protected. They have an unbeatable market price for running shoes for cross or mountain trails. At first glance they are presented very well made with hi-vis tapes. They are very comfortable and with a lot of grip. Its duration I do not know for now but it is my fourth Xero Shoes product and so far all perfect and durable in addition to super comfortable. Many thanks to Xero Shoes and its designers, of course you have done an excellent job and I totally recommend this product. All the best for next. (Posted on 14/03/2018)
Phenomenal Review by Sam D.
Rating
This is a phenomenally comfortable, rugged, and lightweight shoe. It exudes strength while also allowing your feet to move freely. The bottom treads are strong, rugged, and grippy. Great for hiking, biking, and camping. I don't want to take them off. Well done xero shoes! (Posted on 27/02/2018)
