Product Description

Due to increased costs of materials, manufacturing, and shipping, the price of this product will be raised on September 1st.
Limited quantities are available before that date.

“I went on a two-week road trip and these were the only shoes I wore.”  – Andrew T.

The comfort of a sport sandal upper, the lightweight, barely-there feel of a packable travel sandal. This combo lets the Z-Trek do it all.

WHY WILL THE THE Z-TREK BE YOUR FAVORITE ALL-PURPOSE SANDAL?

COMFORT AND SECURITY.

The Z-Trek is an upgrade to the popular original, now with smooth, tubular nylon straps made from rPET recycled materials. The fully adjustable strap system lets you fine tune your fit, giving you the security you love in Xero Shoes.

The 6.0 mm FeelTrue® sole gives fantastic ground feel while still protecting you from the elements, while the dual direction chevron tread provides you confident grip. All that and they still only weigh 204 grams each for a men’s 42.

NATURAL FEELING. NATURAL STYLE. 

 The Z-trek is stylish and available in multiple colors. They’ll confidently take you from jogging at the beach, to your favorite water-sport, to a stroll through town, all while enjoying the benefits of natural freedom.

WE MAKE SANDALS 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 Z-Trek.

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, a 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.

The Z-Trek fits large and we recommend a snug fit, so…

Buy the Z-Trek in your usual US size, or go one size smaller

So far so good, feel sturdier than the cloud, but also a bit heavier.

These seem like really nice sandals so far. I switched to them after my clouds blew out for a second time. They're quite a bit more protective that my clouds were, but still lighter than my running shoes. They wear a bit different so my feet got some abrasions and a blister on my first run. I think as I break this in and build some calluses they're work out nicely. They also seem more durable than the clouds I had before.

hot weather only

1. Thin flexible sole has its price. No thermo insulation at all. When it is 18C outside the cold comes from the ground and makes feet cold. 2. Short stripe. Apparently I've got high instep so when I manage to put my sandals on, I don't need to tighten the stripe because it is too tight even when fully released. But it is not an easy task to put them on. Also due to short and flexible stripe it is an adventure to put the sandals on wet feet. 3. Maybe due to the same reason there is a slight discomfort on the inner part of feet where the stripe attached to the sole. Pros: 1. because of its low profile it is easy to carry them in a swimming buoy. 2. the sandals look durable, buckles work well

Z-Trek Sandal

So far they are really uncomfortable, I've worn them for nearly 2 weeks now and have blisters in the heel area. I have tried different tension in the adjustable straps, but no difference. I only use barefopt shoes, so its not an adaptation issue, and the fit of the Sandal is good.

Good quality but not a fit for my feet

The sandals seem to be of very good quality but when I wear them, the ridges next to the heel slip under my heel which is uncomfortable. I tried rearranging the fastening in all possible ways but couldn't avoid this problem. So I returned them.

You sure can. Just slide the webbing through the slots on the outside of the sole to get the tension you like.

Note: A lot of our customers report that they like the toe strap looser than they thought they would. Experiment and see what you like best.

Use the templates that are linked on this page (next to where you select the size, and in the product description).

NOTE: Please measure your foot and/or use the templates. Sandal size is very often different than shoe size.

Pretty much anything you want. Take a walk on the beach, a hike in the woods, hang out with friend, stroll around the campsite, approach a climb, paddle a canoe, run a marathon…

I’m not sure that Z-Trek, or any sandal for that matter, is right for lateral motion sports, like tennis or basketball.

So, use your common sense and HAVE FUN!

There are 54 different foot shapes. And no product will fit everyone perfectly.

If you’re not sure you have the right size, drop us an email with some photos (top, side, back) and we’ll give you our opinion.

If you have the right size but the Z-Trek shape doesn’t quite match your foot… CUT IT! That’s right, you can trim the Z-Trek with a good pair of kitchen scissors. To finish the edge cleanly, try some sandpaper. Don’t cut off too much, too soon, though. Take off just a bit, and then see how you did. Remember, you can’t UN-cut.

If you’re a man with a very narrow foot, you may be better in the “women’s” style. Conversely, women with very wide feet, or over a size 10, should check the sizing for he “men’s” products.

The women’s Z-Trek is a bit narrower, and the webbing is 4mm thinner.

So if you have a narrow foot, whether you’re a man or woman, you may want to check the “women’s” sizing templates and see how those work for you. Similarly, if you have a wider foot, regardless of your gender, check out the “men’s” templates.
