Product Description

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

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

Only one week in the wearing. First sensation was painful under my feet after 30 minutes inside the house. Gets better with time. Have not used them everyday as it's winter here in Europe. Also on the left side of the left foot, felt some pain where the foot touches the buckle on the side. Modified my position in the sandal to be able to wear it without pain. Time will tell. So far still trying to find my comfort with them. Too early to have a complete review of my experience with them. On the stimulation side, seems to do much. But again have to persevere to see how it goes for me.

Naboso surface is disappointing

18 months ago I bought the Z-Trek which I liked quite well, except for lack of grip in wet conditions: my feet slip in the sandals when wet and the sandals slip on wet rock. I hoped that the Naboso Trail would be better in this aspect. Concerning the grip on the ground this is true: the black rubber seems to adhere better to the ground and the larger distance between the logs helps with traction on muddy surfaces. Let’s hope that the duration of the sole will not suffer too much. (after a couple hundred miles the hard rubber Z-Trek has already worn half of the height of the logs in the spot where my forefoot hit the ground. We are nowhere near an expected 5000 miles !). However the Naboso surface turned out disappointing to me: it feels somewhat rough on the feet, but it does neither have a particular positive effect on me, nor does it increase the friction between foot and sandal: when wet I tend to slide forward in the sandal when running downhill just as much as with the Z-Trek. In addition, as to be expected, dirt and grime accumulates on the Nabs sole such that frequent washing and scrubbing is required. In general the sole of the Naboso Trail provides more protection compared to the Z-Trek (that is what I wanted for running on rocky trails), but it is stiff and reduces the ground feeling far to much for my taste. The toe space is so small that the front strap has to be kept somewhat loose, otherwise the side post will be pulled onto the small toe. I like the very low weight of the sandal. To sum up: a mixed review: positive the light weight and the good grip on the ground; not so positive: the stiff sole, the disfunctional Naboso surface and the narrow toes space.

Broken defect

I think, Naboso Trail can fit to me, but one of the straps on the ankle is torn after 150m ~ material defect is not known by you at all! Therefore, I would like to order a new pair identical pair, there this will certainly not happen.

Super légère et compacte. Acheter pour cyclo itinérant. Jusque-là utilisé à la journée à la maison. Je suis très heureux de mon achat.
