Product Description

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.

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).

Why did I wait so long?

The only regret is that I did not purchase them sooner. Looking forward to purchasing the Terraflex for hiking.

Priomania

I conduct a number of strengthening and balance classes. Wearing the Prio, I feel like I directly appreciate mid and forefoot movement and strengthening for the first time. Wish I discovered these a long time ago. Keep up the good work.

FINALLY a pair of shoes I can wear to the gym.

Great. Not always possible to run outside in the winter and i can't wear my sandals into the gym and on the treadmill. Now I have the perfect pair of "gym sneakers". Of course, the first thing I did was pull out the extra sole inside. Thanks again

Just what I wanted!

I've been eyeing these shoes for a while; and, when the shoes were released in all black I knew it was time to pull the trigger. Having seen them in person at a movement workshop a few weeks prior, I knew that they would be better looking in person than they are on the screen. When they (quickly) arrived a few days after ordering I was beyond satisfied with the look and feel of these shoes. Ordered a half size higher than normal, as per the site's recommendation, and these bad boys fit perfectly. The construction seems top notch, I've been wearing them casually all week and they feel like they are built to last. Great materials (no animal products is a plus) that manage to make the shoe feel more substantial than other barefoot products I've used; but, the sneakers still give you that barefoot experience w/ all the feedback. Love, love, love these sneakers already. Highly recommend.

Walking On Earth

I've only had these for a couple of weeks but what a joy they are. I've recently spent four days in Sydney and wore the Prios exclusively. My feet never got sore or hot. I was going to title this review "walking on air" but really, it's more like walking on earth and actually being connected to the ground.

Best my feet have ever felt in a shoe!

My own training consists of heavy lifting, sprinting, and athletic movements. I’ve never had a training shoe that could keep up with what I do until the Prio’s. Incredibly comfortable, and extremely supportive. They held up phenomenal with all lateral and rotational movements. My feet have never felt better during training. Thank you for making such a great product!

Light, comfortable, awesome toe space...a little hard in the heel

These are really great light weight shoes. I love the extra toe space and how comfortable it is. Only draw back is that they land a bit too hard in the heel to be a practical running shoe.

Most comfortable shoes ever!

I've been wearing barefoot shoes for a few years now and have tried a few different brands. These are by far the most comfortable shoes ive ever owned. They fit perfectly and didnt even need to be broken in. I absolutely love them and have recommended them to several people. They do run very small though. I had to order 2 sizes bigger than normal but the company was awesome about exchanging them for a bigger size and getting them back to me right away.
