Prio Men's SIZE GUIDE

We now recommend ordering your regular size.

Note: As of August 9th, 2019 we changed the sizing for the Men's Prio. If you had ordered a pair before that date, a half-size down with our current sizing should fit you now.
FREE EXCHANGES: Most people find our size recommendation gives them a proper fit, but just in case, we have a free exchange program for all US orders.
*If you normally buy a Euro, UK or JP Size, check out the handy conversion chart below.
NOTE: The Prio fits like the TerraFlex, and has a wider toe box than conventional men's shoes. If your feet are particularly narrow, consider the Women's Prio. Just make sure to adjust the size by 1.5 (for example, a men's 8 is the same length as a women's 9.5).

Product Description

My go-to shoes for just about everything.” – Andy P.

The Prio is the most comfortable shoe for everything you do.

Whether you’re out on a run, trying out a new trail, hitting the gym, or toeing a slackline, you’ll love the Prio’s combination of freedom and protection.

“Just-Right” Protection:

The Prio uses the same 5.5mm FeelTrue® rubber as our Z-Trek sandal, so you get great protection while still getting the ground feedback that your feet love. The optional 2mm insole lets you have more or less of a “barefoot feel” depending on your mood.

Lightweight:

A men’s 9 is only 7.6 ounces each – you’ll barely notice you have them on.

Secure-feeling:

Our Huarache sandal-inspired reflective heel and instep straps hold your foot securely – with or without socks – while keeping your toes free to move.

Plus, the Prio is made from 100% vegan-friendly materials.

Imagine you’ve just come home after a long day at work or on the trail. If you can’t wait to take your shoes off the moment you walk in the front door, you’ve been wearing the wrong shoes.

Life-Changing comfort and superior performance come from using your feet naturally.

That’s what Xero Shoes let you do.

Natural Fit. Natural Motion. Natural Feel.

Plus Xero Shoes are backed with a 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.

The Prio is our best-selling “do almost anything” shoe — running, hiking, working out, you name it.

The Speed Force is our lightest, “most barefoot” shoe.

HFS is lighter than the Prio, more rugged than the Speed Force.

The HFS’s sole has a new tire tread-inspired sole that’s made to handle roads and have extra traction.

The huarache-inspired midfoot and instep straps are “hiding” behind a protective welded material.

And the lining using “37.5” material, which is designed for extra moisture wicking.

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 fit true to size. We recommend going with 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.

Amazing shoe and not going back to my Nano

I have been a Reebok Nano fan and always get them for working out. While the Nano 2 are my favorite I would try the newest iterations. But the Prio are making me even forget I have Nanos. The sole is grippier while the upper feels just like a slipper - something that kept me going back to the Nano 2. These are just overall better and fit everything I do in a manner I always wanted my Nanos to do. Seriously great shoe and I will be ordering more

Best shoes ever

I really don’t know why I didn’t purchase these earlier. So much better than the commercial runners. Having a wide foot base, these shoes cater for that. Now my other shoe are now in the cupboard and redundant. Will definitely buy another pair.

My husband (who has large and flat feet) loves these!

Got these for my husband because he goes through sneakers so quickly. These have held up really well because he has flat, wide feet and there is actually room for his feet to sit comfortably. He isn't pushing the sides of the shoe out with his feet. He wears them almost everyday and since they are black, he is able to wear them for casual dress when he has to go into the office. They are awesome!

LOVE these shoes!

I have now had a pair of the XERO Prio for one week. I have been struggling over the last two or three years with my go to athletic/hiking shoe company of choice as quality declined and their shoes kept getting narrower. I had begun to have symptoms of plantar fasciitis in my right foot with severe achilles pain. I tried other brands as well, but found them to be even worse. I took a chance on the Xero Shoes after a pop up add came up on YouTube - and after watching numerous informational videos and watching and reading customer reviews I thought I would give it a try.....but I had learned the hard way not to have positive expectations. As soon as I put them on I could feel a difference IMMEDIATELY. Super comfortable but in a different kind of way compared to other shoe companies. Not all of the cushiony kind of filling that are in some shoes, not hard either - but just extremely light and they fit my feet perfectly........ FINALLY. My feel have felt great! Already have ordered a pair for my wife's birthday and plan on buying another pair for myself very soon for work purposes. I never do customer reviews, but had to make an exception for this great product.

Super comfortable and really well made

Super happy with my Prio shoes. They don’t feel clunky like other shoes. Light on the feet and very flexible making movement a pleasure. Now I understand why everyone raves about Xero Shoes.

Traded in my Vivos for this

After hemming and hawing for months about getting a pair of Prios, my old Vivos had finally had enough and it was the perfect time to take the plunge into a different shoe. I'd already been wearing the Terraflex and Hana shoes for years, so I'm upset with myself for not trying the Prios sooner. They're flat-out the most comfortable minimalist athletic shoe I'v ever worn and I'd strongly recommend them to anyone looking for a decent-looking-but-ridiculously-comfortable athletic shoe at a fair price.

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.

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.
