Product Description

Now Xero Shoes are ready for you for KIDS!

You probably know how important it is to let your kids’ feet develop and function naturally — letting their toes spread, and their feet bend, flex, move, and Feel the World!®

That’s why we’re thrilled to release the Kid’s version of our best-selling Prio barefoot/minimalist shoe for everything they love to do.

The Kids’ Prio has everything you love about the adult version, plus we’ve made a few changes, just for them:

  • More grip! We spaced out the lugs and made them bigger on the FeelTrue® soles to give them better traction.
  • Ergonomic fit We didn’t just shrink the adult Prio, we changed the shape for a better fit.
  • Just-right feedback We also thinned out the sole a little bit to make it extra flexible, give kids the right amount of ground-feel and protection.
  • Unisex fit Don’t worry about boys vs. girls, the Kids Prio is made for both.

Of course, we’ve kept all the best things about 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 little feet bend, move, and flex the way, well, that feet are supposed
  • Lightweight — Your kids might even forget they’re wearing them
  • Natural FEEL — Remove the 2mm insole for a more “barefoot feel,” or keep it in for a bit more protection
  • 100% Vegan-friendly materials — No animal products are used in the Prio
  • Huarache-inspired design — The huarache-sandal inspired strap helps secure the heel
  • Adjustable instep strap — Use the “inverted V” straps aren’t sewn down to lock in the instep while keeping toes free to move
  • Reflective straps — The middle strip in the heel and instep straps are highly reflective for evenings and night
  • 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*

A note about sizing

The numbers for kids sizes change. The “Kids 12” is the smallest size, followed by Kids 13, then Youth 1-4.

Worried about your kids outgrowing the Prio?

We know that kids grow, and we’re not fans of buying shoes “that they’ll grow into.”

To help out if your kids get too big for their Prio, we’ve created a Facebook Group where you can trade/swap/buy/sell your shoes and pass your still-wearable pair to someone who still fits your size, and find a pair for the next perfect fit.

(Note: The FB group is for use at your own discretion. The deals you make are up to you.)

*5,000 mile sole warranty is non-transferable and only valid for the original purchaser of the shoes.

The Prio is an “all-around” shoe. It’s good for walking, running, hiking, playing, climbing… you name it.

That’s totally up to you (or them).

The Prio is made so they can be worn with or without socks.

The Kids Prio is “true to size,” so select the typical size for your child.

Now, that said, sizing is not a science, there’s a lot of personal preference involved… Three people with identical feet will have three opinions about how the same shoe fits 😉

If the size you get doesn’t fit, take advantage of our free domestic exchange policy. See https://xeroshoes.com/return-policy/ for details.

All the straps — the heel and instep — are adjustable for a secure, comfy fit.

To use the instep straps, simply tighten or loosen them with the tension of the lace that goes through them.

For the heel strap, it’s best to adjust it by gently sliding it through the “wing” in the sole rather than yanking on it.

The Kids Prio isn’t waterproof. But the breathable mesh should dry quickly.

We know that children have a habit of growing.

We’ve created a Facebook group where you can find other “Prio parents” with who you can trade/swap/sell/buy. Click Here to see it (opens a new tab in your browser)

Note: We don’t manage the FB group. The participants in the group are responsible for managing all transactions.

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.

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.

The bomb!

I love my adult prio’s so much I bought my 7 yr old son a pair. They fit like a glove and are the most comfortable shoes to wear without socks. He loves that we have the exact same shoes too!

Love These Shoes

They are cute and my kid loves them! He’s been barefoot most of the 5 years he’s been alive, but we needed something a little warmer for winter, so we chose these shoes. The little grips on the bottom are good for some activities, such as hiking (because we live in the woods), but I hope Xero will eventually make a shoe option without them as well.

My favorite running shoe!

I have tried so many different styles and brands. And this are my go to running shoe, I like running trails, and these offer good grip and roads too, so I can run road and then loop at a trail without having to change shoes... materials are durable and after almost a year the sole is still in great conditions! I have removed the insole for a more ground feeling.

Kid favorite

My 8 year old loves these shoes. He likes that he can do his “raccoon toes” inside his shoes and loves that he can feel the ground in the shoes. He doesn’t trip like he did in traditional shoes.

Great Shoes

My son really like these shoes. He didn't even notice that there was no support underneath them. He likes how they are really flexible and light. I wish they sold half-sizes, but I'm sure he'll grow into them very soon anyway.

Velcro Update

Xero has a great product and my children seem to enjoy wearing them. We took our son on a hike around 3.5 miles and he did great throughout the whole hike with rocks, branches, and a few falls I wonder if it may be possible to include a few other colors for children, maybe even including a Velcro edition for the younger children and even have some part of the shoe that lights up in some special way. Our son would be much more drawn to them and I would like to get him a few other pairs that will help him grow more familiar with the feel of the Xero shoe and experience. I wear mine just about everyday and look forward to expanding my line to include other models outside the Prio.

No velcro

The shoes themselves are great, but have no Velcro, just laces. My son doesn’t want to mess with laces when in hurry, which is almost always.

Shoes for my son

My nine year old loves his Xero shoes! He is very picky when it comes to shoes. He’s only worn barefoot style so anything that constricts his feet in the least he complains about, not these. He loves them and just wore them on a camping/ hiking weekend. His only slight complain was his ankles were sore at the end of the long hiking day (7 plus miles) which I told him meant his ankle muscles just got more work than usual. I found the same with my Xero shoes. Can’t recommend enough!

My son (just turned 5) really enjoys his Prios, and are usually his shoes of choice when he goes outside to play.
