The Z-Trail gives you an unparalleled combination of:
What can you do in your Z-Trail sandals? Practically anything!
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.
Yoga class? 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:
