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 NEW 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.

Check out these reviews from kids and their parents (and then click the Customer Reviews tab, above, to read more)

We recommend buying the Kids Prio in your regular size.

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.

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 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.

Please note that some countries do require the payment of import duties for international shipments above a certain value. 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).
Also, check our Stores page. There may be a Xero Shoes dealer closer to you.

After you purchase a gift certificate, you’ll be able to enter an email address for the recipient.

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.

Racing shoes

Our son simply loves, what he calls his new racing shoes. Growing up on minimalist shoes, we are happy to finally see a kid’s version for the Prio! Daddy enjoys his own pair, too! We hope that in the future we don’t have to go through that time consuming process of having to order Xero shoes from your website, but that there will be retailers for all of your models here in the Netherlands or in the vicinity. Your sizing advice seems to be off big time and apparently some of your staff measures shoes in a different way. Even after receiving the supposed inner shoe length via email contact it was not correct and we had to return the first pair again. In total it took us about 6 weeks after the initial order before our son was able to enjoy his racing shoes. Thanks for making these great shoes!

Great

We love them and so does my son. Great for school as he finds other shoes too bulky and hot to wear all day at school. My only negative point is the laces... we bought the elastic type lace cause he doesn’t yet know how to tie normal laces!

Great, comfortable, roomy shoe!

When my son put them on, he said, "They are so flexible! I love them! They're super comfy. They give me space to move my toes."

Great Shoe

My daughter loves this shoe! She put them on and said "I can run so fast in them and they are comfortable!" I love that I can expect them to last long enough to pass them down to my son as well.

Awesome

My son loves these. I like how wide they are. Just wish they came in smaller sizes. Would love my one year old to have a pair

For my 9 year old

We noticed my daughters form and speed changed drastically when she took her shoes off for speed drills and she walks/runs on her toes a lot. These have a wider toe and are much more flexible than her regular shoes. Her first meet wearing these she cut 1min 20 sec off her time...

My daughter loves them

My 7 year old finds them comfortable and likes the purple. They are thick enough for cool weather as well, whereas other minimalist shoes provide little to no insulation.

We love them because they’re Xeros but

It’s difficult having a child’s shoe that needs tying. The laces are that type of cord that slips past itself and comes untied frequently. They do not stay tied the way my Lenas do. Other than that, the high quality and durability is what we’ve know and love with this company.
