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 women’s 7 is only 6.4 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

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 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 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).

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

You can also take the Gift Certificate code and send it to the recipient.

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.

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!

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.

You need these shoes!

These are the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned. I don't want to take them off. We remove our shoes when we get home and I regularly forget they are on my feet until HOURS later. I will not ever need to buy another sneaker. Tip: do pay attention to the sizing reviews and size up a full size, even from other brand athletic shoes.

Loyal Customer

Years ago I switched from another name brand “barefoot” style shoe and have stuck with my Prios ever since. The wide toe box and flexible sole make any workout easier on my body. I’m a customer for life!

Helps with my Runner’s Knee

I’m getting older, and my body can’t seem to take the work out beatings I used to give it on a regular basis. I bought these shoes as a last resort for my Runner’s Knee that was cropping up a few hours after every run I went on. I watched a great video on barefoot running basics, and between that and these shoes, NO MORE RUNNER’S KNEE! I’m so happy I can run again without worrying about ruining my knees. I absolutely love these shoes!!
