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.

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.

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.

They are so durable!

I have bought so many kids shoes that fall apart or wear out in a few months. These shoes are so durable and hold up to my active kids. And the best part is my kids love them too!!

My son loves them!

My son loves these shoes. He says they make him faster. They are good quality and very lightweight. We will probably purchase longer laces because my son gets frustrated tying such small loops. Otherwise, they are perfect.

Happy kid in robust shoes

We use them for a few weeks now - my kid loves them, all movements look great and they seem pretty robust so far. Thanks for producing these!

Fantastic shoes

My son says these are really comfortable. Both boys think the design is “cool” 😉 I’m happy with the shoe’s flexibility and the customer service experience was extremely kind.

Our son loves them!!

These are our 9 yo son's favorite pair of shoes. Before wearing them outside, he wore them continuously in the house. They are very light, well made, and flexible on the feet of a very active young man. We will definitely be a repeat customer. Very happy with our purchase!!

Flexible, comfortable, durable

I purchased Xero shoes for my active 9 year old son to see how they’d hold up to all the challenges he would put them through. The shoes first attracted my attention because they allow feet to be feet. They are incredibly flexible and well shaped. My son took out the insoles for the heightened “barefoot” feel and has worn them every day. He is a runner and puts these shoes to the test. They passed with extra credit! I will be purchasing Xero for the rest of the family.

Perfect choice for active kids!

Our son LOVES his Xero shoes! Why would anyone put anything other than Xero shoes on their kids? These help kids grow up with strong, flexible feet, avoiding the postural problems most of us have later in life. I only wish I had had these when I was a kid. Do your kids a HUGE favor and keep Xero shoes on their feet!

Love them and want more colors!

I bought three pairs for my three kids, but wish they had more variety of colors. Green and pink would be amazing!
