Great review. Like you, I purchased a kit from Xero back when they were Invisible. DIY Huaraches!

I have some of the Amuri Venture Xeros, which are nice and light, especially for heading out in the heat, but it sounds like these would be more appropriate for heavier use and general kicking around.

Hey Greg!

Seems like they improved the fastening points from the Amuri Z-Treks I previously reviewed. Those sandals had a bit of a lip on either side, which can create a blister wall for wider feet.

These are more similar to Unshoes' Pah Tempe; strapped closer to the sole for a more curved and accommodating fit.

Looking good!

So I am wondering - I have a pair of the Luna that goes between the toes. When I tried a pair of Unshoes that did not go between the toes, it really disturbed me - apparently the way I walked did not work well with the strap change.
Is this a personal preference thing, or can the straps on these really be adjusted so it doesn't matter? Or should I go with a smaller shoe than I think so that there isn't as much of a sole in front of my toes? I ask because my Lunas are starting to wear out, so I am starting to look - and in the winter these would be more convenient if I am wearing socks.

"Quick lateral movement and jumping are less than ideal in the Z-Trail. I would argue that this is true of any sandal..."

How can it be a running sandal if you can't sprint and perform quick lateral movements? Shoes do this just fine. I don't think its impossible for a sandal to have the same agility ability as a shoe, but I have yet to see it.

How does the strap system on these not limit your toe splay? The front strap should trap your forefoot right?

I appreciate your honest review. All other reviews of this model are basically just advertisements or people who have never tried minimal shoes before.

I have gone through 2 pairs of these in about a month. On both pairs the d-ring kept rotating. Xero Shoes' advice is to just keep returning and reordering until I get one that doesn't rotate. You would think they would have worked out this design issue before putting these things on the market.
