Z-Trail - the Ultimate Trail-Friendly Sandal - Men's
The Z-Trail gives you an unparalleled combination of:
- Light Weight
- and Affordability
What can you do in your Z-Trail sandals?
- At the end of a day of hiking, pull off your heavy, stiff, boots and slip into the freedom, comfort, and flexibility of the Z-Trail … they’re so light you’ll barely notice them on your feet (and will barely tell they were in your bag!).
- Enjoy a run, on trails or roads, with the right amount of protection, and lightweight flexibility that’ll make you feel like you’re practically barefoot.
- Yoga class? Well, the grippy soles make the Z-Trail like having a yoga mat on your feet all the time. Do your own class anywhere you are!
- Head downstream … whether you’re in a canoe, a kayak, or a raft, the Z-Trail holds comfortably on your feet, and they float!
- Take a walk — anywhere you like, from a mountain trail to an urban jungle. The comfort of the Z-Trail will surprise you.
What makes the Z-Trail special is the 3-layer FeelLite™ sole.
- The bottom has Xero's 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 BareFoam™ layer adds a perfect amount of comfort.
- And the FeelLite™ sole still maintains enough flexibility to allow for natural movement and ground-feel.
What’s the difference between the Z-Trek and Z-Trail?
That’s the Z-Trek on the left, and the Z-Trail on the right. You can see that the Z-Trail is crazy flexible, but not quite as much as the Z-Trek.
Put another way, the Z-Trail is about protection and comfort first, and the Z-Trek is about connection first.
If you’ve been wearing your Z-Trails around for a while, enjoying the comfort, when you then put on the Z-Trek, you think, “Oh, right, I can FEEL things again!” So you can go back and forth between them, depending on how much you want to feel.
Let’s talk about weight! This is maybe the best part.
The Z-Trail is about 20% lighter than the Z-Trek. But that’s nothing. Let’s compare the Z-Trail to a traditional sport sandal:
The reviews for the Z-Trail have been AMAZING. Pretty much everyone says that they’re the best sandal they’ve worn.
