    Xero Shoes would like to give away a pair of their Umara Z-Trail running sandals to a lucky winner!

    The perfect combination of protection, comfort, light weight, natural flexibility, durability, versatility and affordability.

    Go everywhere, do anything…

    Why are some people calling our Umara Z-Trail “The Ultimate Sandal 2.0”?

    Well, last year’s Z-Trek seemed to be the Ultimate Sandal… but the new Z-Trail takes it a step further. It gives you an unparalleled combination of:
    • Protection
    • Comfort
    • Light Weight
    • Flexibility
    • Durability
    • Versatility
    • and Affordability

    What can you do in your Z-Trail sandals? Practically anything!

    • At then end of a day of hiking, pull off your heavy, stiff, smelly 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!)
    • Pull ’em out when you need to cross a stream — they’re water resistant Okay, if you’re using them as a camp shoe, be warned: You may find that you can use them to hike INSTEAD of your boots! Talk about saving weight… send your boots home. ;-)
    • Enjoy a run, on trails or roads, with just the right amount of protection, and lightweight flexibility that’ll make you feel like you’re practically barefoot
    • Lifting weights at Crossfit — the Zero-Drop sole is perfect for deadlifts and squats, and the light weight makes pull-ups easier, too.
    • 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 your in a canoe, a kayak, a raft, or on a paddleboard, the Z-Trail hold securely and comfortably on your feet. But if you decide to slip ’em off, don’t worry, 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.
    • #FeelRealFun — do whatever you like in your Z-Trail. With our 5,000 mile warranty, they can handle it.

    What makes the Z-Trail special is the 3-layer FeelLite™ sole.

    • The bottom has our 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 just-right ground-feel.
    What’s the difference between the Z-Trek and Z-Trail?

    Trek-versus-Trail-Roll.png

    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.

    I like to think that the Z-Trail is about protection and comfort first, and the Z-Trek is about connection first.

    If I’ve been wearing my Z-Trails around for a while, enjoying the comfort, when I then put on the Z-Trek, I think, “Oh, right, I can FEEL things again!” So I go back and forth between them, depending on how much I 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:


    Get the right size for your Umara Z-Trail: http://xeroshoes.com/shop/umara/ztrail-men/


    More reasons you’ll love your Z-Trail sandals:

    • Super-comfortable tubular webbing — no hard edges
    • Adjustable Z-pattern — get the right tension across your foot, over your foot, and behind your heel.
    • Three color combinations
    • 10mm (~3/8″) FeelLite™ outsole protects you from unpleasant surfaces while still providing great “ground-feel”
    • Elegant contour surrounds your foot, but doesn’t add unnecessary support
    • Super light weight — a Men’s size 9 sandal averages 5.4 ounces each
    • “Zero-Drop” — your heel isn’t elevated; your feet are anatomically correct
    • Rust-proof nylon hardware
    • 100% Vegan (like all our products)
    • Ready to wear — the lacing is already done for you. Just slide in your foot and go
    • Heel cup — keeps your heel in place, helps keep out debris.
    • 5,000 mile warranty! Wear out your Z-Trail soles in under 5,000 miles and we’ll replace them for a nominal cost (details here)

    I need a pair of thicker soles for some of our rockier trails here in Colorado!
    Amuri Clouds are great for gravelly area but more is needed for rocks.

    I have a pair of DIY huaraches. I've never used them to run, but I like to wear them when the temperatures are warm enough.

    IMO huaraches and similar concept sandals are the closest to a barefoot experience.
