Hiking and Trekking Barefoot Shoes

For outdoor enthusiasts, we’ve compared the best-selling hiking/trekking barefoot shoes. Even in cold weather, you can go hiking and keep your feet warm and comfortable. Enjoy barefoot even during the winter months without worry.

Sole shape

Look at the sole because it can differ in shape, space in the toe box, and the angle of heel tapering. Some fit the dominant toe better, others comfortably accommodate a straighter foot type with similarly long toes, and others are more tapered to the little toe. All have an anti-slip pattern to ensure grip and comfort even on more challenging terrain.

And then make your choice - filter the length and width you need, and read the detailed comparisons.

We photographed the shoes in size 39 on foot which measures 24.2 cm x 9.5 cm, with a slightly higher instep and narrower heel.

Be Lenka & Xero Shoes

Be Lenka Ranger Red is a popular model with a new design, suitable for city and off-road. The shoes have a membrane and merino wool insulation for extra durability, and even in winter, your feet will be dry and warm. Thanks to the laces, you can tighten the shoes in the instep and around the ankle, so they accommodate both lower and higher ankles. We don't recommend them to people with narrow heels because they are roomy in this shoe part. The toe and heel part is made of rubberized leather guaranteeing resistance to wear and tear. The non-slip 4mm rubber patterned outsole provides excellent protection and grip. Choose from several colours.

Xero Shoes Xcursion fusion are waterproof ankle boots suitable for colder weather. They have an anatomically shaped toe box with enough room above the toes. Reflective elements increase safety in the dark, and the trail non-slip outsole is very grippy. High flexibility allows natural foot movement. The shoes are light and comfortable.

Xero Shoes & Vivobarefoot

Xero Shoes Alpine are specially designed water-repellent boots for winter use and hiking. They are insulated only in the upper part. The lining is made of polyester and keeps your feet warm. The sewn-in tongue protects the inside of the boot from snow. They are roomy enough in the toe area and adjust nicely to the foot, thanks to the laces. You can choose from several colour combinations.

The Vivobarefoot Tracker II is an all-leather trekking shoe that is best for lovers of natural surfaces. The multi-terrain outsole is exceptionally durable and flexible. Suitable for walks in the woods or more challenging terrain. They have a removable thermal lining, used mainly on cold days, to maintain thermal comfort. We recommend them for the narrower or the average leg.

Vivobarefoot & ZAQQ

Vivobarefoot Tracker Decon is a new addition to the autumn collection. The knitted sock made of premium wool in the ankle area ensures breathability, thermal comfort, and easy slipping on/off. The shoe adapts nicely to the foot. The separate leather part has a protective function and allows maximum flexibility in all directions. The new multi-terrain outsole offers a better grip on the road and off-road. Thanks to the premium materials and the sophisticated fit, you’ll fall in love with them at first wear. Suitable for narrower feet, fan-shaped toes, and dominant big toe.

ZAQQ TREQ ankle trekking boots are water-repellent due to a membrane. They are uninsulated and suitable for drizzly autumn and warmer winters. They have multi-terrain soles and are less flexible but comfortable, thanks to the space in the toes. The insole is amazingly soft and comfortable when treading. We recommend this model for average or narrow feet.
