Shoe Size

Size Help

Our shoes are a smaller fit. We suggest going up half a size, or if you have wider feet going up a full size. Due to the knitted construction of the shoes a good fit may be snug at first, and will then stretch slightly to match the shape of your foot during the first few times of wearing.


Sweet and Bouncy. Our high-performance sugarcane based midsole foam is big on stability and cushioning, sucking up the miles and keeping a smile on your face.

Rock on. Our rocker design rolls you through your stride to make your run feel easier and more efficient, and our flared profile provides support and stability

Easy Breezy. Zoned lightweight & breathable eucalyptus fibre upper provides support, ventilation and protection right where you need it.

Weight: 286g / 10.09oz ( Size US M 9 / UK 8 / EU 42 )

Outsole: Made from FSC-certified natural rubber, keeps you moving with the right blend of durability, grip and rolling motion.

Care Guide

Wash in cold water by hand, or put them into a delicates bag for a gentle cycle in the washing machine. Use a mild and friendly detergent. Don't put them in the dryer, just leave to dry naturally. They'll return to their normal fit in no time. Insoles and laces can be pulled out and washed separately.

Had great sensations while running with Zen shoes. Light and versatile : roads, forest, shoes offer great balance between bounce and stability.

Shoes are great! Great ride on both short and longer runs. I was really surprised how much faster they were than the well known brand I have been running in for the last few years.

Alot of sizes but not mine

Too bad you dont have any in my size 36. This is to often the case with vegan shoes. They look really nice.

Hi Jennie, Thanks for your interest, and we're sorry we don't currently go down to a size 36 - this is something that we are working on for you and will be available to buy early next year.

Performance, comfort, style and eco-friendly!

I wasn't sure what to expect of an eco-friendly running shoe but so far it has exceeded my expectations! As a seasoned runner, I'm impressed with the overall performance, comfort, and style of this shoe. In recent years, I have trained and competed in wide toe box running shoes and these cradle the foot with the perfect balance of support, flex and responsiveness. I'm excited to continue training in these and see how they hold up long term as my road and tread training shoe!

Yes, first Zens association is comfort. I like them not only for running, but they also go well with my urban wear style. Another feature that was surpirsing to me was the durability of Zens fabric. Also the design is discrete as the shoe does not shout with an obnoxious logo. The future is bright for Zens!
