Product Description

“These boots are AMAZING! I find myself wearing them all the time when I need closed
toe shoes even when I’m not hiking.”  – Kate

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 Women'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 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 240 grams each for a Women’s 37.5, the Daylite Hiker Fusion remains the perfect hiking boot for everyday adventures.

A CHIC, UPDATED AESTHETIC.

Available in black and a new subtle purple color, the new Daylite Hiker is a minimalist hiking boot that is stylish enough to pair with leggings, jeans, or khakis 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.

Déçue si l'on compare le prix de cette chaussure à la qualité de confort. Pour une minimaliste, elle est mal taillée et la semelle intérieure et basic. Aucun confort finalement.

Probleme - insbesondere Rücksendung

Die Rücksendung war sehr problematisch und musste um die Frist einzuhalten selbst bezahlt werden. Eine Erstattung ist angeblich nicht möglich. Das hat mich sehr verärgert. Für mich persönlich sind das auch keine Barfussschuhe. Ich bin da ansonsten seit sieben Jahren etwas anderes gewohnt.

take your time

I love the boot. Take your time to get familiar with it. The boot is changing I I love the boot. Take your time to get familiar with it. The boot is changing while walking... More smooth, wider, more soft, flexible and movable. So take your time - first inhouse, than outside... and you will have a boot right fitting around your foot. I am sure, my summerhike will be very secure and vital .... thank you also for the very easy conversion for getting the right size!
