I recently reviewed the ZEM U Cross (Ninja/Split-toe). Today, I'll be tackling their 360 XT Round Toe—that is, it doesn't have the tabi-style split between the big toe and other toes. The Zem 360 XT is a trainer shoe for minimalist enthusiasts and all-around running shoe for experienced minimalist runners. A feather light shoe at a mere 3.6 ounces (.2 ounces less than the Vibram KSO EVO), the 360 XT is great for recreational running, workouts at the gym, and even light trail use. With no lacing system to speak of, the 360 XT stays on your foot with a comfortable stretch mesh upper and some painted-on material for extra structure.
For fitness use, track, and road running, the 360 XT is a great choice for those looking for a comfortable slip-on shoe.
