I just spent a week living in these Z-Trail Sandals (men, women), and I love them. They are very lightweight, they dry quickly and easily, and they pack well. I wore them to the beach, to the pool, and when out and about.
You may look at them and think they look similar to Tevas. They do, but they are much slimmer and provide comparable benefits. No thick nylon webbing to stay wet for a long time nor thick soles.
Z-Trail vs Z-Trek - I like the Z-Trek more. They are lighter than the Z-Trail and feel more comfortable to me.
Size - You can print out paper templates to confirm your size. In my case they were true to size.
Here are some pics of them on me
You can see just how flexible they are
The sandals feel great to wear, they have fantastic grip and are minimalist in looks and branding. It feels like you are barefoot - and in fact, the company and founders have created many types of shoes and sandals that focus on feeling this way. You can read more about them here. Finally, for a great review of these shoes, check out Alex’s site.
Lora and I both have these although she forgot to bring them on this trip 😢
I prefer traveling with these over traditional sandals. I find them to be more versatile.
