Your new favorite minimalist shoe for running, working out, strolling, Crossfit, slacklining… and everything else you love to do

 

Tens of thousands of people have worn our sandals for millions of miles of running. But sometimes a shoe is a more appropriate option.

The NEW Prio is a high-performance, true minimalist running and fitness shoe.

The Prio is about proPRIOception. Your feet are supposed to move, bend, flex and feel… the Prio lets you do that.

Why you’ll love the Prio

  • Natural FIT — A wide toe box lets your toes spread and relax. Plus the “XERO-drop” sole (non-elevated heel and low-to-the-ground) allows for proper posture, balance, and agility
  • Natural MOTION — The Prio is flexible enough to let your feet bend, move, and flex the way, well, that feet are supposed to. Plus, they’re so lightweight, you’ll barely know you have them on. A men’s 9 is only 7.6 ounces each
  • Natural FEEL — The Prio uses the same 5.5mm FeelTrue® rubber from our Z-Trek sandal, so you get great protection while still getting the ground feedback that your feet like. With an optional 2mm insole, the Prio lets you Feel The World®
  • Vegan-friendly materials — No animal products in the Prio
  • Huarache-inspired design — The heel strap is not only eye-catching but functional
  • Adjustable instep strap — The “inverted V” straps aren’t sewn down, so you can use them to lock in your instep while keeping your toes free to move
  • Reflective straps — That middle section of the heel and instep straps are highly reflective for evenings and night
  • Optional 2mm insole — If you need a bit of extra protection, toss in the optional 2mm insole
  • Barefoot-friendly — Wear the Prio with or without socks
  • 5,000-mile sole warranty — like all our FeelTrue® soles, the Prio is backed by our 5,000-mile sole warranty

Caring for your Prios

To clean your Prios, hand wash with warm water, mild soap and allow them to air dry. We do not recommend putting the Prio in the washing machine or dryer.

Practically anything. The Prio is our first “performance” shoe.

It’s great road running, light trail running, walking, hiking, working out, Crossfit, biking, slacklining… it’s obviously up to you. Once you get them on, I’m sure you’ll do things we never thought of (and we want to see pictures of that!).

Put on your Prio and Live Life Feet First!

I’ll admit, this is one of my favorite things about the Prio.

The huarache-sandal inspired heel strap can be used to hold your heel and ankle in place. Pull the straps through the ankle holes in the sole, and then lock them in place with the laces.

The instep straps can be used to secure your instep, which can free up your toes and forefoot to relax and function better. Use the laces to tighten or loosen them to your liking.

It’s not. But the breathable mesh upper should help it dry quickly if you get them wet.

Shoe sizing, especially online, is not a perfect process. That’s why we have a free exchange policy.

For EU/UK/JP sizing, there’s a conversion chart at the bottom of the Prio product description.

The Prio runs a bit small. We recommend going up 1/2 size from your usual athletic shoe size.

Also, the Prio is wider than conventional running shoes.

Sizing for a shoe is different than a sandal, so if you own one of our sandals, that doesn’t mean you’ll pick the same size in the Prio, so use the measuring info if you can.

Keep in mind, though, that because the foot is three-dimensional, any two-dimensional measuring tool, such as a ruler or Brannock device®, can only approximate your true shoe size. Manufacturers model their shoes on different foot shapes, which is why you might be an 8 in one brand and a 9 in another.

If your foot is really narrow and smaller than a men’s 10, you may want to check out the “women’s” Prio. The conversion between men’s and women’s is 1.5, so a men’s 8 is the same as a women’s 9.5.

We do! We’ve sold Xero Shoes to people in more than 85 countries around the world.
We use the US Postal service to send our shipments. The cost to ship will depend on the weight of the package and the delivery speed you select; several options will be provided at checkout.

All domestic shipments come with tracking. Limited tracking is available for some first class international shipments depending on the country, and full tracking is available with all Priority Express and Express International shipments.

Though almost all of our international orders arrive without incident, we strongly advise you to select Priority Express International or Express International if you live in a country with a less reliable postal service, including (but not limited to) India, Brazil, Mexico, South Africa, and Indonesia. We cannot guarantee delivery of packages shipped using First Class International.

International delivery can take anywhere from 3 days to 8 weeks depending on how long your order spends in customs at the border.

Please note that some countries do require the payment of import duties for international shipments above a certain value. We advise you to know the import regulations of your country and understand that you will be responsible for payment of any duties and fees imposed by your government at the border.

All packages will be marked as merchandise; as a commercial shipper, we are not able to mark a package as a gift (if you’re giving Xero Shoes as a gift, that’s not the same as us sending a gift).
Also, check our Stores page. There may be a Xero Shoes dealer closer to you.

After you purchase a gift certificate, you’ll be able to enter an email address for the recipient.

You could email it to yourself and forward it at a later time if you like.

Loving Everything

I am loving these shoes. After going barefoot for many years I have struggled to find shoes I was happy with. In the least couple years I have started exercising now regularly and have been searching for a sneaker that works in the gym without hurting my feet. I finally found it! I am excited to have these and am looking forward to purchasing more and having options!

Better than expected

I heard about xero shoes on a podcast and thought I would just try them out since my feet are flat and wide and hurt all the time. I used to have severe foot pain in the morning that I would have to massage out my feet before I could bear to walk on them. I have been wearing my xero shoes for a couple weeks and that pain is gone. I am thrilled with my xero shoes.

Pros and Cons

For my foot, I like the boxy toe but the back rides too far up the heal for comfort. I fixed by stepping on the back and added a strap around the heal. Looks funky but walking is now painless.

Comfortable out of the box

I received these sneakers last night. They are so comfortable! I have wide feet, 4" across at my toes and I felt no squashing on the sides. There is no drop, the sole feels exactly like my Hana's. But the top of the foot is softer and more comfortable. I found them to run a little short, although my size did fit. I regularly wear a women's 8.5, men's 7. I bought these in the size 7, but am exhanging them for a 7.5. My big toe on my larger foot was rubbing against the front of the shoe in thin socks. I'm hoping to wear these with thich socks during the colder months, so a little roomier will be perfect. These sneakers are cute, functional, and comfy. I can't wait for those 7.5's to arrive.

Love love love

I’ve been wanting a pair of these for years and when I saw them on clearance I just had to pull the trigger. They’re everything I hoped and more. I took the insoles out to get even closer to the ground. As someone who owns 60+ pairs of shoes and wears a different pair every day, I’ve grown tired of having to make more space and buy more racks to keep up. I have worn my Prios every day for a week and honestly now I have a goal to get 3 or 4 different Xero models and get rid of the rest of my shoes. It will be a relief to free up half my extra bedroom and declutter. I’m Xero all the way!

Best Athletic Shoe I Own!

I love this shoe! I ordered these for daily use and when I am getting my workouts in, and they have not disappointed me. I even took these with me on my trip to Mexico. They are light and flexible which makes them easy to pack, and even with the heat and humidity, my foot felt cool and comfortable even after extended hours of hiking around the Tulum Ruins. While other tourists were ready to sit down and take a break off their aching feet, my feet felt like they had been resting the entire time and were ready for more walking adventures. Xero shoes continue to amaze me.

My New Everyday Shoe

The Prios are great for everyday wear. I love the minimalism of the soles and the material is very breathable, which is a nice upgrade from the Hanas that I have (which I still love, but they get a little smelly from the lack of breathability). The only complaint I have with these is the sizing. I ordered a half size up because when I ordered the website said that they run small. Well, between me ordering and them processing my order they changed the sizing, so the ones I currently have are a little too big and my foot slides around some. Overall, they're not a terrible fit, but for in the future I know to order a half size smaller.
