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.

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.

Best shoes ever!

I bought these for my 10 year old son, whose feet ALWAYS hurt. This is the first pair of shoes ever that has felt good on his feet all day long. I will never buy a different brand for him! We've finally found his perfect shoe!

Awesome Vegan Shoes

In Los Angeles, California, in 2019 I participated in NARD’s parade-style event, where I referred many other vegans to Xero brand and the Prio model, in particular. This shoe is comfortably “barefoot” as well as stylish, without calling excessive attention to itself. 🙂 It requires consciousness and care to manufacture ethical products, so Xero earns my respect and business for making awesome vegan shoes without adding extra fees. I look forward to their continued R&D into animal-free options that feel and look as great as the Prio. The best part of “live feet first” is that with Xero shoes, I need not leave my mind and my heart far behind!

Prios are the best!

I love Xero shoes. I own several different sandal styles and Prios. I live in a part of Texas that is littered with really sharp burrs. If I walk through a grassy field they are stuck all over my shoes, socks and pants. Wearing Prios makes me feel like I am still barefoot while protecting me from the spikes. Love them!

Great so far

So far I really like these. I received them yesterday and wore them on a two mile walk. I like how there is that thin, zero drop contact with the road and gait/posture to go with it without being so thin that I’m uncomfortably feeling the gravel and other debris. Overall, these seem like exactly what I was looking for.

Very good

The quality of the shoes looks like on a very high level, no excess glue, threads... I´m a bit concerned about the durability of the upper mesh. Also the heel design is a bit edgy - I could feel it during driving where the the foot rests on the heel. But so far so good, time will show more.

Surprisingly supportive and comfortable - nice and light

Love these shoes for hiking rabbit mountain. I was torn between more support and cushion or more natural. For my 1-2 hour hikes these are perfect for minor scrambling on rocks / dirt roads / and concrete walkways. Love the width on these because my feet got girth baby! Lightweight and mesh is perfect for the summer.

Pokemon Trainer

Nice lite shoe, great for less technical trails and road running. Decent casual shoe, but definitely feel a bit like I'm wearing something out of an anime.

Natural Feeling

Good feel to them, I’m currently using with the I sole and socks cause unlike the extra Cush. Roomy toe box gives good freedom. My main use with these right now is for slacklining, I’ve tried them on a 2” trickline and short 1” park lines and like them so far. They’re very flat and flexible and give the foot protection I like when on the trickline while still being a very light shoe. I honestly still like being barefoot more for walking 1” lines but having a pair of shoes that I’m comfortable walking in is very convenient especially in cold weather. Need to try on a longer and higher 1” line and see how I like them

From skeptic to believer

I was skeptical even after reading all the reviews. How could shoes have a wider toe box and not feel like clown shoes? How could you have no support and be comfortable? Well I received my Xero shoes and immediately put them on. The clouds opened up and the angels sang 🙂 (ok not really, the kids were screaming and it was a tsunami outside) but the shoes fit like a glove. I walked around the house for a few hours and when I went to go outside I tried to put on shoes. I had forgotten I had my Xero's on my feet. I am a person that is SUPER aware of my feet always because I love being barefoot. My initial reaction is a good one and I look forward to wearing these for many many miles. Thank you Xero!
