A Foot-Healthy Minimalist Sports Sandal
The Xero Z-Trail is a durable, versatile, and lightweight sports sandal that’s perfect for almost any activity. This water-resistant, vegan sandal possesses a 10 mm FeelLite rubber outsole that offers foot protection and grip without sacrificing ground feel. The comfortable tubular webbing system holds the sandal securely in place, and the adjustable Z-pattern allows you to get the perfect tension across your foot, over your foot, and behind your heel.
Flexible Sole, Comfortable Footbed, Built-In Heel Cup
The Z-Trail is as functional in the water as it is on land, and its flexible sole means that it packs small, making it the perfect travel companion. This zero drop minimalist sandal has a comfortable BareFoam footbed and a completely flat sole from heel to toe to help enable natural arch support. It also possesses a built-in heel cup to keep the sandal in place and debris from getting under your foot.
Compatible with Correct Toes, Ultra Lightweight Design
The Xero Z-Trail works well in combination with Correct Toes, Injinji toe socks, and Pedag metatarsal pads or Strutz foot pads. Each Z-Trail sandal weighs about 5.5 oz. Because of the TrailFoam in the Z-Trail, these sandals need a bit of extra attention. Please do not leave the Z-Trail in hot cars or exposed to intense, direct sun, as this could cause the TrailFoam to deform.
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.
