Xero Shoes would like to give away a pair of their Z-Trail running sandals, ]the Ultimate Trail-Friendly Sandal, to a lucky winner! Men's: https://xeroshoes.com/shop/gender/mens/ztrail-men/ Women's: https://xeroshoes.com/shop/gender/mens/ztrail-women/ The perfect combination of protection, comfort, light weight, natural flexibility, durability, versatility and affordability. The Z-Trail gives you an unparalleled combination of: Protection Comfort Light Weight Flexibility Durability Versatility 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 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 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. 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: 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 lightweight — 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-friendly. 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 sole warranty! Wear out your Z-Trail soles in under 5,000 miles and we’ll replace them for a nominal cost (details here). RULES OF THIS CONTEST: 1.) You must post to this thread. 2.)
