Xero Shoes Umara Z-Trail

Xero Shoes Umara Z-Trail

Product Review (submitted on 11 June 2018):
+ 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
