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 3mm 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 Kids Prio isn’t waterproof. But the breathable mesh should dry quickly.

Category: Kids Prio

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.

Category: Kids Prio

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.

We know that children have a habit of growing.

That’s totally up to you (or them).

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

Category: Kids Prio

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

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.

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.

Great for climbing

My son loves to climb - rocks, trees, etc. He tried to climb a tree in old shoes with no tread left and was just slipping off; I said wait till your xero shoes come and try again! He went right to the same tree to try it with his new shoes and spend about an hour in it just going all around. They worked great! The tread is super nice and grippy. They allowed him to move his feet all around and truly helped be a support for his movement. They were very flexible right out of the box when he used them. He felt no discomfort that he normally does with new shoes that are too narrow! I did replace the laces with tab + elastic ones because he's not confident at tying yet and I want the shoes to be easy enough to get on and off without the tying effort right now. He says they are comfortable and they do fit very well. A warning to those who are replacing laces - make sure that you cut after loosening to get the feet in. This shoe has ample spacing between the eyelets so the laces should be long enough to accommodate the right feel.

Great shoes!

These have been our go-to shoe for our daughter - they are super comfortable and have held up really well. She wishes she didn't have to tie them - that's the only reason I took off one star.

Good for us

My son prefers these shoes over ANY other shoes. He used to take off his shoes and run in the back yard as soon as he arrived home. With this shoe he is comfortable all day. And me? I finally have some shoes that don’t hurt my heels.

Kid loves them

Our 7 year old has been wearing the Kids Prio for about 2 years now. She prefers barefoot when it is warm enough and rocks these when she isn't barefoot or in snow boots. They aren't the quickest to dry and two pairs have had the sole come unglued from the toe. Xero is great with warranty exchanges when needed and there isn't anything else like these on the market so we'll keep getting them.

Great for Adventures!

My kiddo was super excited to get his purple Xeros for his birthday. He received a pair of mainstream high tops at the same time, but will only wear the Xeros because his toes aren't scrunched in them. They've been hiking, running, mudlarking, wading, biking, and so much more.

Great for my daughter

We are an all minimalist shoe family and we're looking for lightweight sneakers for our 8 year old. She LOVES her Prios the color is fantastic, they fit true to size, and best of all, we now have bathing sneaks! I only wish there were more kid options.
