The Z-Trail by Xero Shoes is an excellent high-mileage barefoot trail running sandal ideally suited for long distance running in drier conditions on hard-packed dirt paths to light dusty trails to grassy areas. The 10 mm, lightweight, completely flexible outsole also provides an effective layer of cushioning and protection that has a smoothing effect for rockier, rootier, acorn-littered terrain.

BSc Neurobiology; MSc Biomechanics candidate, ultra minimalist runner & founder of RunForefoot. I was a heel striker, always injured. I was inspired by the great Tirunesh Dibaba to try forefoot running. Now, I'm injury free. This is why I launched Run Forefoot, to advocate the health & performance benefits of forefoot running and to raise awareness on the dangers of heel striking, because the world needs to know.
