NOTE: The Prio fits like the TerraFlex, and has a wider toe box than conventional women's shoes. If your feet are particularly wide, consider the Men'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

The most comfortable athletic shoe I’ve ever worn. – Stacy M.

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 women’s 7 is only 6.4 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.

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 fits a bit small. We recommend choosing a size that’s 1/2 larger than 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. And then, there’s personal preference: three people with identical feet might think the same shoe fits differently.

If your foot is wide and larger than a women’s 7.5, you may want to check out the “men’s” Prio. The conversion between men’s and women’s is 1.5, so a women’s 8 is the same as a men’s 6.5.

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.

Caring for your Prios

My feet feel like hands!

My feet feel so much in these shoes! I have depth perception issues and walking down stairs has always been a problem, but with xero shoes it's much easier because I can feel where my feet are. I also have always had a hard time finding wide enough shoes and the only previous pair I've had weigh one pound per shoe! So needless to say, when I first put them on I felt like I was stomping! I absolutely love xero shoes! When I first put them on I literally said out loud, "my feet are free at last!" Thank you guys so much for such a great product!

The best!

These are the best barefoot shoe that I have found. I barely notice that they are on my foot during my run. I also love that they are a full shoe so that I can wear them for my work fitness test. I usually wear a 7.5 in running shoes which allows extra room for my foot expanding or swelling. In the prio, I needed a size 8 to have the same space. So, be aware of that when purchasing!

10 outta 10!

Incredibly comfortable, perfect fit - everything I didn't realize I needed in a shoe! Would recommend to absolutely anyone. Can't wait to test them out on different surfaces when it gets warmer!

Exactly what I didn't know I needed!

I love the Prios I bought. I want to tell everyone about them! It's amazing how much I pay attention to what's going on with my feet now.

AMAZING

Bought these shoes for a hiking trip to Glacier, and I am so glad I did. When I first started seriously hiking almost four years ago, I started with a minimalist shoe; however, several people convinced me to ditch the minimalist shoes in favor of heavy hiking boots. I've had nothing but problems ever since with blisters and shin splints and hot spots. I never truly gave up my minimalist shoes; I wore them just about everywhere but hiking. I finally took the plunge and ordered the Prio. I hiked close to 70 miles in about five days through waterfalls, shallow streams and incredibly hot, dry mountain conditions. Not a single blister, hot spot or foot/leg pain. So glad I went back to wearing shoes that allow my feet to move naturally and experience all the terrains I trod on a daily basis.

Like wearing slippers all day

Loved them so much I bought another pair, different style. I’ve noticed my feet feel better and my balance is much improved in the gym. They are comfortable for daily wear and feel like wearing slippers all day.

Exceptional shoe and customer service!

I purchased these shoes for my girlfriend for christmas, and she was really excited to get them! The original pair may have had a 1/1,000,000,000.01 chance of a defect, which we inquired about and were immediately taken care of. They sent us a new pair within a matter of days. She has now put 100+ miles on them with XERO sign of wear or defects. I highly recommend this shoe, and this company. P.S. As felliw Coloradans, its great to know that a company like this does our state proud!

Happy Feet

I like the product and my feet are very happy! It’s taking my calves a while to be ok with running in these, but I don’t run long distances in them anyways. Might have to look into the running shoe next or MFS!

Prio

There is so much to love about these shoes. The one thing i'm not totally thrilled with is that the tongue sits a bit high on me and after wearing them for a shift at work this will become bothersome to me. Additionally the "made in china" was a surprise. I assumed based on what I read that they were made here in the USA.
