Why you’ll love Ridgeway.

Ridgeway – Look Good On and Off the Trail

Combine the allure of retro style with cutting-edge barefoot-friendly technology, and you get the Ridgeway – a hiking boot with a rugged canvas upper with suede accents. It’s ready to conquer technical trails with friends and comfortable enough to enjoy a beer afterward.

Best Barefoot Hiking Boots

I hated the way hiking boots looked and felt… until I found these. My feet stay protected, and I LOVE the style.

Your Wet Weather Companion

The Ridgeway is not just stylish and comfortable; it’s also waterproof, with a fully seam-sealed inner bootie, gusseted tongue, and waterproof membrane.

Grippy and Lightweight

Confidently navigate the terrain with an aggressive trail-ready lugged outsole.

At just 369 g (M8), the Ridgeway is lighter than most technical boots, but even lighter than many running shoes.

Embrace brisk mountain mornings, wet trails, or cozy evenings by the fire with the confidence that your Ridgeway boots have your back.

A "Midsole Illusion"

It might look like the Ridgeway has a thick midsole. Actually, we took our embedded TrailFoam™ layer (that evens out the bumps) and wrapped it around the upper giving the illusion of thickness. You’ll still enjoy the flexibility and natural movement you expect from Xero Shoes.

Ridgeway for everything you do.

Life changing boots!

I love these boots, and it really is life changing to have some that you can just wear on any occasion, totally waterproof, super comfy, and great grip. I have had a pair of Xcursion Fusion for years, so trying these out this time, and they are really great so far. One small quibble is that I much prefer the top open speed hooks on the Fusion, instead of closed hooks on the Ridgeway, as I find them a lot easier to lace up.

Not waterproof

I wanted to love these boots. Comfy, good grip, stylish; but they failed on the waterproof hurdle. I contacted xero about this, and after some chasing to get a response, they had a no quibble attitude and sent out a replacement pair. Unfortunately the replacements were not waterproof either. I don’t think there is a manufacturing fault, I just think the materials used aren’t up to the job. To be fair, I have been out in some very wet weather, but I do need a pair of waterproof boots. Waiting to hear back from xero about the non waterproof replacements, I’ll see what they say

Amazing find

Had been looking for a zero drop heel boot that had some sole padding (as opposed to none like most barefoot companies) These are perfect, have found my new footwear brand.
