Product Description

“I hated the way hiking boots looked and felt… until I found these. My feet stay protected, and I LOVE the style.” – Ed M.

RIDGEWAY – Look Good On and Off the Trail

Combine the allure of retro style with cutting-edge barefoot-friendly technology, and you get the Ridgeway – a hiking boot with a rugged canvas upper with suede accents. It’s ready to conquer technical trails with friends and comfortable enough to enjoy a beer afterward.

RWHM-FNRK_Ridgeway_Fallen-Rock_Cerebral_02120.jpg

Your Wet Weather Companion

The Ridgeway is not just stylish and comfortable; it’s also waterproof, with a fully seam-sealed inner bootie, gusseted tongue, and waterproof membrane.

A “Midsole Illusion”

It might look like the Ridgeway has a thick midsole. Actually, we took our embedded TrailFoam layer (that evens out the bumps) and wrapped it around the upper giving the illusion of thickness. You’ll still enjoy the flexibility and natural movement you expect from Xero Shoes.

Grippy and Lightweight

Confidently navigate the terrain with an aggressive trail-ready lugged outsole.

At just 369 grams (M42), the Ridgeway is lighter than most technical boots, but even lighter than many running shoes.

Embrace brisk mountain mornings, wet trails, or cozy evenings by the fire with the confidence that your Ridgeway boots have your back.

WE MAKE HIKING SHOES 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 Ridgeway.

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 Live Life Feet First!

Comfortable hiking boots

My first 4 hour hike was nice with my new Xero shoes, they are very comfortable and my feet did not feel tired at all.

Five stars so far!

They are very comfy, and wide where I need it – which is along the entire foot. Toe box is wide enough for me, no problem, but some other brands tend to only think of the toe box. My entire feet are wide, apart from the heel, and these accomodate that width throughout. Other, more "traditional" hiking boots that I've tried work well enough at first, but after a few days of hiking my feet start hurting on the side of the foot, along the abductor digiti minimi. So far there has been no trouble whatsoever with that from these shoes. I can feel that there won't be an issue with that at all, with these boots. They are very sturdy and give enough support, without being heavy at all. They probably weigh as much (little) as regular running shoes. They feel great walking in snow, and they are great hopping between rocks. Looking forward to taking them to the Swedish mountains this Summer, to see how they hold up in that varying terrain with my bag packed full of hiking gear and photography equipment. Oh, by the way – they look even better in real life!

My Xero Experience

I ordered a pair of Ridgeway boots, and went with the online advice to go with my normal size. The boots were delivered over the Christmas holiday while I wasn't home, and got returned to Xero because I hadn't been able to collect them from the GLS Pick-up Point within 10 days. Xero managed to get the boots back to me, but I then found they were going to be too small if I wore my normal hiking socks. The return process was very easy, just had to print a label and take the boots to my local post office. I then had to wait a couple of weeks because the next size up was out of stock, but as soon as they were in, they were sent to me. The team at Xero (I don't know how many there are, but I just dealt with Hugo and Caitlin) responded to all my emails straight away through the whole process, and kept me fully up to date with the status of my order. There was absolutely no need for me to worry about anything. As for the boots, I took them for their first long walk over the weekend, and after 3 hours they felt as though they had been made specially for me. Highly recommend the product and the service.

Not Vegan

In the online store, I could not tell there was leather on the shoe. Upon receiving the boots, I immediately sent them back. Please list the materials in your online store!
