A Lightweight & Low Stack Height Hiking Boot
The Xero Scrambler Mid is one of the world’s lightest and most technical hiking boots and is designed to be used for anything from gentle day hikes to month-long thru-hikes. The sturdy yet minimalist Scrambler Mid incorporates a variety of foot-healthy design features, including a wide toe box to accommodate natural toe splay, a flat and flexible sole to encourage proper balance and enhance foot strength, and a low overall stack height to ensure stability and keep you connected with the ground below.
Durable, Eye-Catching, Ready for Action
This durable and eye-catching hiking boot—a collaboration with Michelin, the car and bicycle tire company—possesses mud-shedding lugs that perform well on a variety of surfaces and offer you extraordinary grip. The Xero Scrambler Mid’s Fiberlite sole also includes an embedded textile layer, which gives it unparalleled strength, flexibility, and lightness, while a thin layer of TraiFoam offers you extra comfort and protection when navigating gnarly trails. Indeed, this do-it-all mountain boot is ready for adventure.
Breathable Mesh Upper, Works With Other Footgear
The Xero Scrambler Mid is abrasion-resistant and incorporates a breathable mesh upper, welded sidewalls, a two-layer toe cap, and a gaiter hook that you can use if the elements present a challenge. This versatile vegan boot offers you the perfect combination of lightness, flexibility, grip, protection, and comfort, and you can even use it as a trail “running shoe” if you wish. The Scrambler Mid also works well in combination with Correct Toes, Injinji toe socks, Pedag metatarsal pads, and Naboso insoles for synergistic foot health benefits. Each Xero Scrambler Mid boot weighs about 11 oz.
Note: If you are new to using Xero footwear, we recommend that you start in slowly, gradually building up your wear-time and giving your body the chance to adapt to the thinner soles and the increased workload on your feet.

To get the most out of your Xero Scrambler Mid boots, the manufacturer recommends that you order your normal US shoe size. For example, if you normally wear a men's US size 11 shoe, consider ordering an 11 in the Xero Scrambler Mid.
If you're on the fence about what size to order, consider ordering both sizes and then simply return the size that doesn't fit as well for a refund. If you have concerns about sizing, feel free to contact us or Xero customer service.
Sizing Tip #1: To create additional roominess within the boot, we suggest removing the included (optional) boot liner/insole; this action does not, in any way, affect the performance of the boot. Optionally, and to enhance balance, posture, agility, and general foot/body awareness, you might consider adding thin, flexible Naboso insoles instead.
Sizing Tip #2: Correct Toes toe spacers will often add width and length to the foot. If you’re planning to wear Correct Toes with your footwear, we recommend sizing up, especially if you are on the border between sizes.
