Product Description

WOW! What can I say about this upgrade?
The new style is just awesome.”
 
– Craig C.

With its new lightweight, abrasion-resistant welded upper and grippier lugged sole, the Daylite Hiker Fusion is perfect for those hikes when a technical boot is more than you need.

NEW Men's Lightweight Hiking Boot for 2021 - DayLite Hiker Fusion by Xero Shoes

WHAT’S NEW ABOUT THE DAYLITE HIKER FUSION?

PROTECTION THAT FEELS JUST RIGHT.

The Daylite Hiker Fusion features a new 10mm FeelTrue® sole that includes a 3.5mm lugged dual chevron tread that has been re-designed to provide even more grip and control without sacrificing the ground feel and feedback you’d expect from Xero Shoes.

IMPROVED COMFORT AND DURABILITY.

We’ve tucked our Huarache-inspired tension straps under a sleek new welded upper so you can achieve a snug fit with even more splash and abrasion-resistance. At just 351 grams each for a Men’s 42, the Daylite Hiker Fusion remains the perfect hiking boot for everyday adventures.

A FRESH, UPDATED LOOK.

Available in black and a subtle, earthy brown, the new Daylite Hiker is a minimalist hiking boot that is stylish enough to pair with just about any casual or work attire, so you can wear it both on and off the trail.

WE MAKE BOOTS SO COMFORTABLE, YOU’LL FORGET THEY’RE EVEN ON.

If your feet don’t feel as good at the end of the day as they did in the beginning, you haven’t tried the Daylite Hiker Fusion.
 
Life-changing comfort and superior performance come from letting your feet do what’s natural – bend, move, flex and feel.
 
All Xero Shoes feature a wider, foot-shaped toe box that lets your toes spread and relax, a non-elevated “zero drop” heel for proper posture, low-to-the-ground design for perfect balance and agility, and a flexible sole that gives you “just right” protection so you can bend, move, flex, and safely Feel the World® in total comfort.

Caring for your Xero Shoes

To clean your Xero Shoes, hand wash with warm water, mild soap and allow them to air dry.
We do not recommend putting your Xeros in the washing machine or dryer.

Sizing, as you’ve probably experienced, is different between brands. You may wear a 42 from one company and then anything between an 41 and 43 from another company.
Luckily, if the size you get is incorrect, we do offer exchanges for our shoes.

In Men’s sizes, the DayLite Hiker Fusion runs fairly true to size, so we recommend your regular size.
In Women’s sizes, the DayLite Hiker Fusion runs a touch small, so we recommend a half-size up from your regular size.

If you plan to wear thick socks with the DayLite Hiker, you may want to add an additional 1/2 a size to accommodate for that.
We have sizing guidelines on this page and our main sizing page but keep in mind that these are “guidelines.” People like their shoes to fit differently — some like their toes right up at the edge, others like to have 0.5 cm – 1.5 cm of extra space in front of their toes.

Did I mention our exchange policy? 😉

It’s not waterproof because the tongue is independent of the rest of the upper, though the ballistic mesh material in the upper definitely makes this boot a little more rain-friendly than most other footwear. If you really want to keep the water at bay, check out our Xcursion — Xero’s first fully waterproof boot.

We know from experience that whatever we say here, people will ignore and they’ll do whatever they want in their DayLite Hiker.

After all, we know of people who run marathons in the Hana and previous Lena styles, and those are both described as “casual” shoes. 😉

We designed the DayLite Hiker for the kind of journeys that most people take, most of the time — day hikes, non-technical trails, and even just walking around. While it’s not a “technical” hiker, the flexible FeelTrue® sole will let it tackle more than just a stroll. Check out the reviews to see what others are doing in their DayLite Hikers.

Like all our shoes, the DayLite Hiker has a “huarache-inspired” heel strap. You can tighten or loosen that to give a bit more (or less) support around your heel, which can hold your foot in place better.

And like the Prio, the DayLite Hiker has independently adjustable instep straps. You can tighten the laces going through those “inverted V” straps to cinch the boot around your instep. This can also help keep your foot secure. Securing your instep (but not TOO much) can actually let your toes relax even more… experiment with the tension of these straps and see what you experience.

We use “men’s” and “women’s” as a matter of convention. We know there are some men who will fit better in the “women’s” shoe, and vice versa.

The “men’s” style is a bit wider across the toes and in the heel. The women’s, conversely, has a narrower heel and slightly less-wide toe box.

If you’re a man with a very thin foot, or a women with a wide foot, you may want to try the “other” style.

Comfy shoes

The are good, light comfy, I like them indeed. Anyway, one pair I had to return back as to my mind they run one size small, I had to buy one size up.

They are ok but some drawbacks

I like the shoes overall, but they have a couple of inconveniences: I'm not fully comfortable with the width of the shoe, I'd better like the shoes a little bit wider (maybe should I have chosen 1/2 size bigger but the recommendation is choosing my size). Another drawback and the important one is that the sole is terribly slippery when wet, I'm not confident at all walking with these shoes on rainy days.

Great but

I love these boots. Very comfortable and warm but you have to be careful since you can easily slip when the ground is wet. Also they aren't very water resistant

Excellent walking shoes

I walk daily around 10km with these shoes, mostly on asphalt, gravel and occasionally in the forest. In the autumn weather they are great, other than the soles being somewhat pretty slippery on wet rocks!
