Minimalist runners wanting a bit more cushiness to their ride will be overly pleased with the Xero Shoes Z Trail! Amazingly, despite its added underfoot protective plush, the outsole has an incredibly lightweight barely-there-feel and gives good ground-feel, yet is structurally substantive enough to provide exceptional underfoot protection against sharp rocks, roots and acorns.

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.
