From Livestrong: "My favorite light shoe! These shoes did not seem like they were going to handle much when I first tried them on. Forty-five days of daily wear, including hiking over various terrain -- beach sand, river crossings, rocks, gravel, manicured city trails and a few trips off into the woods with no path at all -- proved that not only do they hold up to the abuse, they have become my favorite light shoe. The compact, minimal design, allows them to fit into the smallest pack, and washing them was as simple as a quick spray-down with a hose. The Z-Trek could be used as trail shoes and still look nice enough to wear at a barbecue."
Over 120,000 people in 94 countries wear Xero Shoes for hiking, walking, yoga, working out, paddle boarding, kayaking, travel, even running 100-mile ultra marathons.
The Z-Trek's patent-pending FeelTrue sole lets you enjoy natural, barefoot-style movement, but with the protection and comfort you like.
They roll up and fit in your pack or pocket -- keep them handy for when you need them, or store them away when you're done.
Lightweight (Men's 9 - 6.4 oz), water-friendly, comfortable tubular webbing, vegan, latex-free. Lightly textured top surface for grip in wet or dry conditions, and a dual-direction chevron tread for great traction.
For more trail-friendly protection and even lighter weight, check out the Xero Shoes Z-Trail sandal, instead. The Z-Trek is about connection/flexibility. The Z-Trail is about protection/comfort.

On the aesthetic side of things, the shoe looks a little bulky with the strap anchors sticking out, but I could get used to that. Overall the design seems like it would help keep debris out better than a simple flat sole. An option for a pattern regarding the straps would be useful since patterns help hide stains.
I ended up going with Luna sandals and a huarache type shoe that was on clearance, even though I was trying to avoid the strap between my toes. Turns out that their sole pattern fits my foot perfectly and the strap rubbing I was afraid of is a non-issue.
I got these bad boys for my trip to the Philippines, and let me tell you I was not disappointed! These guys were my main footwear for 30 days in the Philippines. I was in Manila (The BIG city), I went to Laguna to go trekking for waterfalls and swim on lakes, went to Batangas to go up mountains, Quezon for the beaches, and Palawan for their awesome beaches and scenery. I took this guy everywhere and let me tell you that it exceeded my expectations! These guys were tough! They were my hiking shoes, city shoes, casual shoes, water shoes!
Fit was excellent, all I needed to do was adjust it a lil bit to get the right fit and I was all set. I'm just really happy I pulled the trigger on buying them.
*Note, I would not suggest taking them for a hike if you're not used to barefoot walking/running you'll definitely feel the ground/rubble beneath you if you do. I actually prefered this cause it gave me an awesome natural foot massage *
It is very light and thin so it does not take up a lot of space.
It will dry quickly when wetted.
The trouble is the front strap is a Z pattern. To tighten the front, you pull the strap towards the buckle. The strap is not easy to adjust because it uses a buckle. Then there is the excess strap that flaps around. There is a band that you can slide up and down to hold down the excess strap.
The problem is each time you remove and put on the sandals, you will have to loosen and readjust the straps. The strap relies on friction to keep it in place in the buckle. While friction is good to hold the strap in the buckle, it works against you when you want to loosen it. It is not an impossible task. It just makes it harder. They should have used velcros instead of buckles.
These minimalist sandals are, after 4 days, my go to summer footwear. I haven't left the house without them since they arrived. They replace a pair of Chacos that I bought in the spring, and hated every moment wearing.
They're like walking barefoot, light as a feather, super thin soles. The straps are soft and comfortable, and don't chafe anywhere. I wear them all day with no discomfort.
Definitely not stylish, and could use some more interesting color options, but in general, they're great.
Put simply, these sandals welcome wide feet. My big toe can get close to the front edge of the footbed and my smaller toes are not in danger of hanging off the side. The front strap also still lands BEHIND all my toes (I hate sandals that have a strap that ends up running over my small toe). The midsection is also wide. There's no concern of footbed overhang in this area, either.
The strapping system fairly well placed and has nice advantages in its design. The strap that comes across the forefoot goes through a cinching point, rather than just an attachment point. This allows the forefoot strap to be adjusted and remain set without having it come back upon itself with a hook and loop (Velcro) closure. This reduces the thickness and ultimately stiffness typically found with straps in this area on other sandals. Really, this is a ingenious design characteristic.
My only complaint with the forward strap is the final closure, which is a cinch buckle. While this works well for retaining the fit, it also means that donning and doffing is accomplished by undoing the rear heel strap, which does have a hook and loop closure system. Maybe I've grown too comfortable with the universal strapping system offered by Teva, but I just like using a hook and loop strap that comes in front of the ankle to loosen and remove the sandal. If the cinch buckle at the ankle were replaced with hook and loop closure system, the strapping on these would be nothing short of awesome.
The other important aspect of these is that they are minimalist as well. Aside from being lightweight, you're not left feeling like you've just strapped some blocks to the bottom of your feet. If you're concerned about support and padding, then these are not right for you (at least until you've changed your views on foot support). Bottom line, there is none (as it often should be). If you've worn Vibram Fivefingers, then the ground feel is about equivalent, and they are zero drop from heel to toe, as one would expect. The thin sole in addition to offering a lightweight and good ground feel also makes these easy to pack as well.
The sole does have a modest heel cup which I've found to be distracting at times. I believe that my issue has to do with the my heel lifting off and then recontacting the footbed. Perhaps on my next pair I'll try going to the next size up and see if situating my foot a little further forward. It might be an interesting experiment to mold the sole with a stretchable tab that meets up with the rear strap. There's enough flexibility in the sole material that it probably could be held somewhat positively against the heel with this extra connection point. If designed properly, it could be easily removed or cut off by those who would find unnecessary, too.
All in all, I'm quite happy that I've given these a try, both for the fit and minimal sole. Thanks for making a product for us wide-footed people, too.

I am a 12.5 wide so I ordered the 13 (Medium). They are a tiny bit long but not silly long. Totally passable for open toe shoes.Read more
First, a wider toe box, so the foot can splay free. Secondly, a higher trimming will debris stay out.Read more
