Product Description

The Z-Trail gives you an unparalleled combination of:

  • Protection
  • Comfort
  • Light Weight
  • Flexibility
  • Durability
  • Versatility
  • Affordability

What can you do in your Z-Trail sandals? Practically anything!

  • At the end of a day of hiking, pull off your heavy, stiff 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 tell they were in your bag).
  • Enjoy a run on trails or roads.
  • Yoga class? 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 you’re in a canoe, a kayak, or a raft, the Z-Trail holds comfortably on your feet, and 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.

What makes the Z-Trail special is the 3-layer FeelLite™ sole.

Z-Trail FeelLite sport sandal 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 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.

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

If I’ve been wearing my Z-Trails around for a while, enjoying the comfort, when I then put on the Z-Trek, I think, “Oh, right, I can FEEL things again!” So I go back and forth between them, depending on how much I want to feel.

Let’s talk about weight! This is maybe the best part.

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:

The reviews for the Z-Trail have been AMAZING. Pretty much everyone says that they’re the best sandal they’ve worn.

Very nice, all terain shoes!

Most comfortable sandals

I’ve been using this sandal for a couple years, and now bought a pair for my kid - really comfortable, good quality, simple beauty.

Wai M.

Very comfortable

The straps are easily adjustable. I have very wide feet and they still fits very well. The sandals also works well with my painful bunion.


Very nice

At the begging I was a bit skeptical about this sandals and the way the leashes supposed to be regulated, but wit the time I am getting more fascinated by them. They are really light, comfortable, just the toes are a bit quite exposed and from time to time they get in front more then it is preferable, but it is depending on the terrain. I also have been swimming with them into the sea `(the situation suggested it) and it was quite comfortable. I do recommend it for sure.

Agata L.

Great comfort and performance

They’re smaller than z-trek and provide me a better, more secure fit. Super lightweight and comfy. The tread could be more aggressive though, it gets clogged with mud and soil quite easily.
