Xero Shoes Z Trail Review for Forefoot Running

Xero Shoes Z Trail Review for Forefoot Running

At 10-mm thick, the Xero Shoes Z Trail’s outsole still gives a low to the ground-feel that gets your feet moving quickly and the plush padding makes it premium for high mileage efforts! The sandal has a soft, cushy underfoot feel, but doesn’t feel mushy or excessive, that not only delivers a springy, clunk-free and responsive ride, but is packed with a surprisingly amount of durability without compromised flexibility.

"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.
