It's easy to fall in love with its minimalist design and groovy vibes. ZuZu Groove is perfect for walking, dancing, and running in ALL terrains, while providing great comfort for short or extended daily walks.
Featuring a 11mm thick triple-layered sole made from recycled tire, anti-bacterial EVA midsole, and a moisture-wicking vegan leather footbed, ZuZu Groove delivers a barefoot experience with a soft feel and a more natural look.
ZuZu Groove is our favorite sandal, and for good reason. It's beautiful, versatile, and incredibly comfortable, making it perfect for any occasion. Whether you're strolling through the city, hiking a mountain trail, or just enjoying a day at the beach, ZuZu Groove will keep your feet strong and free.
If this is your first time trying minimalist footwear, you simply can't go wrong with ZuZu Groove.
It's important to remember that transitioning to barefoot walking (or running) requires adaptation of your foot muscles and soles. As these muscles get stronger and adjust to their natural state, you will find that walking in minimalist shoes feels more natural and comfortable than anything else.
The ZuZu Groove model provides an excellent balance between ground feel and comfort, with improved shock absorption and mild cushioning. You'll enjoy all the benefits of barefoot-like footwear while also keeping your feet protected when moving on rugged terrain and stepping on sharp rocks.
City streets are often paved with dense materials like asphalt, concrete, and bricks, which can feel uncomfortable and unnatural underfoot when walked on for long periods.
However, with the extra cushioning layer attached to the tire sole and the additional soft vegan leather footbed, ZuZu Groove provides superior comfort, making walking in the city a natural, minimalist, and comfortable experience.
If you primarily walk on hard urban surfaces, we recommend considering either the ZuZu Groove or ZuZu Flex models for best comfort.
When it comes to barefoot running on both paved and natural roads and trails, the Groove or Flex models are our absolute favorites, providing a comfortable and natural feel for your feet while staying agile.
We make the ZuZu Groove soles from upcycled car tires, which provide excellent grip even after years of intensive use, allowing you to run long distances without worrying about sole wear and tear.
Thanks to the high-quality EVA midsole, the sandals provide better shock absorption and protection than thinner minimalist sandals with a 3-7 mm sole. This advantage is particularly beneficial for long-distance running, as the minimal shock absorption reduces the load on your feet, minimizing the risk of muscle pain and injury.
In summary, if running in sandals is your go-to, we recommend choosing the ZuZu Groove or Flex models.
An important element of barefoot shoe design is to enable natural foot movement without unnecessary assistance or support.
The ZuZu Groove model strikes a balance between ground feel, comfort, and softness. While not as minimalist as the ZuZu Flow model, the Groove's added cushioning can be an advantage when moving on hard surfaces.
The sandals are designed to become an extension of your foot, thanks to their flexible materials that mold to the arch of your foot over time.
Although ZuZu Groove is a great choice for those who prioritize ground feel, we also recommend considering the ZuZu Flow model for a closer-to-earth look and feel. Ultimately, the decision depends on your personal preferences and the types of activities you plan to do.
After a long day of roaming around the city jungle (or a real jungle), crossing the finish line of a trail marathon, or simply surviving a hot and humid summer day, the advantages of ZuZu Groove shine.
The unique vegan leather of the sandal's footbed features both anti-bacterial and moisture-wicking properties, which help your feet stay well-ventilated and combat unpleasant odors.
In addition, the midsole also contains an antibacterial component designed to reduce and prevent the development of unpleasant odors that may arise from the accumulation of sweat and dirt.
Thanks to these properties, the ZuZu Groove model is one of the best smelling sandals out there, keeping your feet fresh and free,
Here is where ZuZu Groove falls short of our other models. The soft and smooth vegan leather footbed performs exceptionally well with sweaty feet (due to its moisture-wicking properties), but once getting completely soaked, it can become somewhat slippery.
It is important to remember that due to the tying style of ZuZu sandals, prolonged exposure to water can affect the strap length and widen the textile fibers. If the straps become loose while walking in water, tighten them by adjusting the buckle.
In conclusion, if you frequently wear your sandals in wet conditions, we recommend considering either the ZuZu Flow or ZuZu Flex for optimal performance. However, in spite of the above, we find that for most people a good tightening of the straps when soaked removes most of the slippiness.
