Zig-Zag Walk is the twelfth studio album by British hard rock band Foghat, released in 1983. Unlike the previous year's In the Mood for Something Rude, which consisted of all outside material, lead singer Dave Peverett wrote five of the album's ten songs, with guitarist Erik Cartwright contributing a sixth. A few of the songs are given a rockabilly treatment augmenting the blues rock the band is better known for. It would be the band's last album for over a decade until their comeback album, Return of the Boogie Men, in 1994.

Prouducer "Franz Leipkin" and keyboardist "Eli Jenkins" are pseudonyms for old bandmate Nick Jameson, who had played in Foghat in 1975 and produced several Foghat albums around that time.[1] Paul Butterfield makes a guest appearance on one song,[2] playing harmonica on "Seven Day Weekend".
