Product Description

Get the foot-stimulating benefits of Naboso® technology with the summertime freedom of our best-selling Z-Trail sandal

Naboso Trail Sandal - Proprioceptive Sport Sandals by Xero Shoes
Dr. Emily Splichal created Naboso® (meaning “barefoot” in Czech) technology. It’s the first-ever small nerve proprioceptive material commercially available and designed for the purpose of improving posture and enhancing movement.

We’ve been proudly offering the Naboso® insoles for people who want that beneficial foot stimulation in their shoes.

The Naboso Trail sandal still has a 3-layer sole, like the Z-Trail. We’ve used the Naboso® Performance material as the footbed:

  • 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 Naboso® Performance Technology layer gives you stimulation
  • And the sole still maintains enough flexibility to allow for natural movement and ground-feel

Check out these reviews (and then click the REVIEWS tab, above to see more!):

More reasons you’ll love your Naboso 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.
  • Super lightweight — a Men’s size 42 sandal averages 153 grams each.
  • “Zero-Drop” — your heel isn’t elevated; your feet are anatomically correct.
  • Rust-proof nylon hardware.
  • 100% Vegan-friendly.
  • Ready to wear — the lacing is already done for you. Just slide in your foot and go.
  • 5,000-mile sole warranty! Wear out your Z-Trail soles in under 5,000 miles and we’ll replace them for a nominal cost (details here).

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.

In short, yes.

Though it may take you some time to work up to wearing your Naboso Trail sandals all day.

No need to push yourself. Do what’s comfortable (and, over time, what’s comfortable will “expand”).

It will depend on you.

Some people will put them on and wear them all day, right away.

Others will find that too stimulating.

Listen to your body and “be your own coach.”

Wear them for 20-30 minutes and see how you feel. If that felt good, add some more time.

If it ever feels like you “did too much,” then rest and do a bit less the next few times you wear them before you increase the amount of time you have them on (sadly, we never know we “did too much” until we, well, do too much 😉 ).

For some people, the Naboso Trail can be too stimulating at first.

No problem. Get a THIN pair of socks and wear those with your Naboso Trail at first.

When you feel ready, try 5-10 minutes without socks.

Over time, by listening to your body, you can build up the amount of time and the activities you do in your Naboso Trail sandals.

Naboso Trail sandal after 6 weeks of use

It was my first time using a Naboso sole shoe or sandal. I have been heavily using for the last 6 weeks, and having done probably about 40 km rough terrain and about twice of that on smooth road, my experience is a mixed bag: (1) The Naboso trail is like sandpaper if you use it barefoot and sand and dirt go in, this sole has dimples which are perfect for holding grit. I had large blisters to show how quickly this abrades the skin. Socks are strictly required. (2) The ole is thin with great protection against sharp objects. Wonderful. (3) The straps are very long. They can be folded back, which is good, but I cannt understand why they have to be so very long on a European size 46 sandal..maybe they are shorter on small sizes. (4) The only way that this sandal does not slip and slide on your feet is by tightening the front strap really tight and bring that tension back o the main strap around the ankle. Especially true for any jogging, running and climbing where there are much greater forces at play. This is a tedious enough process through the sticky rubber eyelets at the front - and these are sticky and rubber so that they grip the strap. It is a small gripe. Overall, the sole is the best part of this sandal, but socks have to be used against abrasion. I hope this review helps to make up your mind about these sandals.

frustrated experience

the contact of the material with the sole of the foot is extremely aggressive. if you have a thin sole, you are skinless. the sandal and the grip are great. I don't understand how they put this material in contact with the sole of the foot

Good feel

The bumpy feel gives great feedback. You get used to it pretty quickly and the floor in my house feels oddly soft after wearing these. One minor thing is that the space in between the bumps will fill up with dirt and dead skin over time, so you'll have to clean them pretty regularly.

Great shoe

I bought the sandal with naboso sole, I was expecting a good sole with some nerve stimulus but I got a shoe that stimulates soo much, combined in a barefoot sandal. I am so happy with these, try them if you want to stimulate your brain through your feet. I love these sandals with naboso
