Can't Find Your Size

Why you’ll love Z-Trek.

Why will the the Z-Trek be your favorite all-purpose sandal?

The comfort of a sport sandal upper, the lightweight, barely-there feel of a packable travel sandal. This combo lets the Z-Trek do it all.

I went on a two-week road trip and these were the only shoes I wore.

Andrew T. USA, Verified Z-Trek Mens Customer

Comfort and security.

The Z-Trek is an upgrade to the popular original, now with smooth, tubular nylon straps made from rPET recycled materials. The fully adjustable strap system lets you fine tune your fit, giving you the security you love in Xero Shoes.

The 6.0 mm FeelTrue® sole gives fantastic ground feel while still protecting you from the elements, while the dual direction chevron tread provides you confident grip. All that and they still only weigh 204 grams each for a men’s 8.

Natural feeling. Natural style.

The Z-trek is stylish and available in multiple colours. They’ll confidently take you from jogging at the beach, to your favourite water-sport, to a stroll through town, all while enjoying the benefits of natural freedom.

Z-Trek for everything you do.

Caring for your Xero Shoes

To clean your Xero Shoes, hand wash with warm water, mild soap and allow them to air dry.
We do not recommend putting your Xeros in the washing machine or dryer.



Use the templates that are linked on the fit page (scroll down to find the different sandal templates by size and style).

NOTE: Please measure your foot and/or use the templates. Sandal size is very often different from shoe size.

There are 54 different foot shapes. And no product will fit everyone perfectly.

If you’re not sure you have the right size, drop us an email with some photos (top, side, back) and we’ll give you our opinion.

If you have the right size but the Z-Trek shape doesn’t quite match your foot… CUT IT! That’s right, you can trim the Z-Trek with a good pair of kitchen scissors. To finish the edge cleanly, try some sandpaper. Don’t cut off too much, too soon, though. Take off just a bit, and then see how you did. Remember, you can’t UN-cut.

If you’re a man with a very narrow foot, you may be better in the “women’s” style. Conversely, women with very wide feet, or over a size 10.5, should check the sizing for the “men’s” products.

Pretty much anything you want. Take a walk on the beach, a hike in the woods, hang out with friends, stroll around the campsite, approach a climb, paddle a canoe, run a marathon…

I’m not sure that Z-Trek, or any sandal for that matter, is right for lateral motion sports, like tennis or basketball.

So, use your common sense and HAVE FUN!

You sure can. Just slide the webbing through the slots on the outside of the sole to get the tension you like.

Note: A lot of our customers report that they like the toe strap looser than they thought they would. Experiment and see what you like best.

The women’s Z-Trek is a bit narrower, and the webbing is 4mm thinner.

So if you have a narrow foot, whether you’re a man or woman, you may want to check the “women’s” sizing templates and see how those work for you. Similarly, if you have a wider foot, regardless of your gender, check out the “men’s” templates.

Very Impressed!

Premium quality material makes for a comfortable feel on foot. No blisters, very soft and secure fit. I have used these for running, hiking, and everyday activities. Very impressed with this sandal and this brand.

Great for travel

The Z treks are my go to travel sandal. They pack easy, adjust to your foot well, and are made with high quality materials to last.


So wide, and heavier than you’d expect.

I wanted some minimalist sandals, and these looked very nice. First of all, they were set to arrive—per Xero’s tracking, on 01Apr. For the following 6 days, it was “arriving today” until this weekend when the shipping updated to 10apr, when they finally arrived. I’m generally a size 12 (including my other xero shoes) so that’s what I’m ordered. These sandals are an appropriate length but are wide, very wide. Definitely not suited for a svelte European foot, these are 100% beefy-American-fat-foot sandals. They also weigh 1/2 lbs each! I was expecting light weight along with the minimalist construction. Oh well. If you decide to buy Xeros, try to find them in a store so you can try them on first..

Z-Treks go anywhere.

They are very comfortable. The soles seem tough enough to last a long time. These will be my go-to footwear for the summer. The sizing chart is accurate, they run a little big. I wear 11 in HFS, 10.5 in daylight hikers and had to get size 10 in the Z-trek.

I was wary of the thin soles, thinking they wouldn't give my feet enough protection. But, they protect my feet even over rough shale rock in my driveway. I've never worn any footwear that allow such freedom of movement and comfort but still protect my feet at the same time. These are my go to Summer footwear.
