Xero Shoes Z Trail Review for Forefoot Running

Xero Shoes Z Trail Review for Forefoot Running

One of the most appreciated highlights of the Xero Shoes Z Trail is that the strapping system does not have the bothersome toe-post, rather the Z-pattern straps offers more fitting dynamics and a better feel as well as a seamlessly adaptable fit across the width of the forefoot. The straps are also sufficiently flexible to enable the toes to spread naturally and are easily adjustable for a customizable fit regardless of foot shape!

"I believe the forefoot strike is the engine of endurance running..."

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.
