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’m absolutely in love with them and already use them for EVERYTHING. Walking, hiking, even everyday chores and tasks!”  – Megan H.

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 153 grams each for a women’s 37.5.

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.

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

*Please note: The Z-Trek is a gendered sandal with different widths between Men’s and Women’s.

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.

Z-Trek

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

sizing is waaay off

I wear EU41 and have other Zero shoes in that size. The description for this shoe suggested we should order one half size smaller, so I ordered size 40. Yikes! It was way too big, so I returned it and ordered a replacement pair size EU39. Still generously sized.

quality is amazing - just a few critic points

all in all : the shoe's quality is amazing. the only criticism i have is that i can't seem to figure out how to bind them, they always seem to end up slipping backwards as i walk and i am always stepping onto that back corner with my heel.

Very good barefoot sandals for every terrain

Finally I found this very comfy sandals that adjust well to narrow feet. I used them already on the beach, in water but also for trekking and I can recommend them. The sizing is the only downside. I normally wear size 40, bit this sandals fit in 38,5 because they run very long.

Nice sandals, but disappointed

First I ordered these sandals in the size that I had according to the template, but they were too big. As I had to pay the return myself I just kept them. Then I ordered another pair, which was two sizes smaller than my regular size, but was fitting. Now, after 3 months, one strap already broke. Apart from this, I really liked them.
