The Ultimate Sandal 2.0

Why are some people calling the Xero Shoes Z-Trail "The Ultimate Sandal 2.0"? The Z-Trail gives you an unparalleled combination of protection, comfort, light weight, flexibility, durability, versatility and affordability.

What can you do in your Z-Trail sandals?

At then end of a day of hiking, pull off your heavy, stiff, smelly boots and slip into the freedom, comfort, and flexibility of the Z-Trail… they’re so light you’ll barely notice them on your feet (and will barely be able to tell they were in your bag!)

Pull ’em out when you need to cross a stream - they’re water resistant Okay, if you’re using them as a camp shoe, be warned: You may find that you can use them to hike INSTEAD of your boots! Talk about saving weight… send your boots home.

Enjoy a run, on trails or roads, with just the right amount of protection, and lightweight flexibility that’ll make you feel like you’re practically barefoot.

Lifting weights at Crossfit - the Zero-Drop sole is perfect for deadlifts and squats, and the light weight makes pull-ups easier, too.

Yoga class? Well, the grippy soles make the Z-Trail like having a yoga mat on your feet all the time. Do your own class anywhere you are!

Head downstream… whether your in a canoe, a kayak, a raft, or on a paddleboard, the Z-Trail hold securely and comfortably on your feet. But if you decide to slip ’em off, don’t worry, they float!

Take a walk - anywhere you like, from a mountain trail to an urban jungle. The comfort of the Z-Trail will surprise you.

#FeelRealFun - do whatever you like in your Z-Trail. They can handle it.

The 3-layer Z-Trail sole

The bottom has our FeelTrue® rubber for great grip and abrasion resistance.

The middle layer of TrailFoam™ provides an incredible amount of force absorption and protection.

Then, the top BareFoam™ layer adds a perfect amount of comfort.

And the FeelLite™ sole still maintains enough flexibility to allow for natural movement and just-right ground-feel.

What’s the difference between the Z-Trek and Z-Trail?

That’s the Z-Trek on the left, and the Z-Trail on the right. You can see that the Z-Trail is crazy flexible, but not quite as much as the Z-Trek.

We like to think that the Z-Trail is about protection and comfort first, and the Z-Trek is about connection first.

Let’s talk about weight!

The Z-Trail is about 20% lighter than the Z-Trek. But that’s nothing. Let’s compare the Z-Trail to a traditional sport sandal:

More reasons you’ll love your Z-Trail sandals

Super-comfortable tubular webbing - no hard edges.

Adjustable Z-pattern - get the right tension across your foot, over your foot, and behind your heel.

10mm (~3/8″) FeelLite™ outsole protects you from unpleasant surfaces while still providing great “ground-feel”.

Elegant contour surrounds your foot, but doesn’t add unnecessary support.

Super light weight - a Men’s size 9 sandal averages 5.4 ounces / 155 grams each.

"Zero-Drop" - your heel isn’t elevated; your feet are anatomically correct.

Rust-proof nylon hardware

100% Vegan

Ready to wear - the lacing is already done for you. Just slide in your foot and go.

Heel cup - keeps your heel in place, helps keep out debris.

Getting in and out of Z-Trail sandals

Follow these simple video instructions.

To help reduce the chance of getting an incorrect size, we HIGHLY recommend you follow these instructions.

Step 1 - Measure your foot

- Place a piece of paper against a wall (if you have VERY large feet, use a piece of newspaper).
- Place your foot on the paper, with your heel against the wall.
- Make a mark on the paper at the furthest point away from the wall… this will either be just in front of your big toe or second toe.
- Take a ruler and measure from the edge of the paper to the mark you made.

Here’s a video showing the process...

Step 2 - Check your measurement against the sizing chart

- For the most reliable fit, we recommend you use the foot length sizing info in the table below.
- Our sizing recommendations are based on customer feedback and we provide advice on a best efforts basis, however we cannot 100% guarantee a proper fit.

Step 3 - Print the template to verify the fit

You can verify you have the correct fit by printing the template and comparing it to your foot.

- Make sure you print the template at actual size (100%) and CHECK THE MARKED SCALE WITH A RULER.
- You MAY be a different size in the Z-Trail and the Z-Trek. The Z-Treks are about 4mm longer.
- For women, if your foot is longer or wider than the template, try one of the men’s sizes.

Here’s a video showing how to use the template...

Caring for Z-Trail sandals

To clean your Z-Trail sandals, hand wash with warm water and mild soap, and allow them to air dry.

Because of the TrailFoam in the sole, do not leave your Z-Trail in a hot car or exposed to intense / direct sunlight as this could cause the TrailFoam to deform and is not covered under warranty.
