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.

Love these boots

Just sliding my foot into the boots for the first time my feet and my whole body said we're home. They are great on the trail and around town.

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 326 g (W5.5), 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.

Love the style of the boots not so much the sizing

Absolutely stunning design boots. Love the colour and the style. Unfortunately the sizing for me is off. I first bought a 7.5 which has too small which I returned. I then bought an 8 which for me is usually a little big. Unfortunately I am going to have to sell the size 8 boots as they are too small. They feel comfy when wearing and when walking on flat surfaces but as soon as I walk down hill my toes jam into the front. Also part of boot around the ankle also rubs. I may try and 8.5 but I'm not sure now as I will lose money from postage and selling the boots for cheaper now they are worn.

Light and easy walking

I really like the light weight of these walking boots - noticeably less tiring walking and feeling my feet are well supported and protected from the elements. As a lot of my local walks involve both pavement and trails, so I also appreciate these boots have good grip on different surfaces.

Perfect for me

Loved the roominess of this boot especially across the toes. Also even after I inserted my prescription insoles there was sufficient room. However where I needed the boots to be a bit tighter such as round the ankles the laces worked well. Thank you Xero. Certainly your boots were a better solution to my sore feet than that suggested by my podiatrist - to have my smallest toes cut off!!!!

Katrin F.

Very happy

So far only used to go to the pub, but super comfy and all I’m looking for in a boot.

Sandi N.

Walking boot

The entire shoe is a lot stiffer than I expected. I thought I would have a better connection to the ground.
