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 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.

Quality but difficult to put on.

The shoes are high quality and appear to be resilient for our kids. However, they are difficult to put on so we actively choose other shoes we have. This may change over time with wear I am sure.

Great quality shoe

I ordered a pair for each of my kids. They are EXETREMELY rough on shoes. I had just been buying cheap shoes but they are getting tore up in 3-6 weeks. I am SOO glad I made the investment here. They've had them for about 4 months now and they still look fantastic. The kids love the fit and I am really glad to have a natural movement shoe for them. I'm super impressed with how well they've held up. Well worth the investment. I also got the quick laces, because we are still working on tying laces. They work great- just need the length cut down. I will be purchasing these again.

My sons favorite shoe!

We love Xero shoes! It has always been hard to find shoes for my son. He prefers to be barefoot. Before I found Xero he always complained that his shoes were too small, even though his measurement indicated the shoes were too big and too wide. With Xero I buy him is correct size and he is happy to wear them! I finally figured out the other shoes were too tight in the toes. Now he no longer fights me about wearing shoes. I am so happy to have found Xero!

My daughter loved them

We are continually impressed by Xero. These were her first lace ups and she loves them. The hold up to the everyday use of a 6 year old.

So comfortable they were worn to bed

My son and daughter are super excited to now have their own pair of Prios. And they're still young enough that matching mom and dad's shoes are still fun. My daughter put hers on, and said, "This feels weird! It feels like I'm wearing socks, but when I look down I'm wearing shoes!" My son hasn't taken them off since he put them on last night (yes, he wore them to bed). His size 1 fits, but there is not very much space for growth, so I went ahead and ordered the size 2 to have on hand when he outgrows them. Size one for my daughter was perfect. He's 7 and she's 9, ha!

Would be perfect if they were more durable

I love zero-rise, minimal shoes for my kiddos. (And I LOVE Xero shoes for myself). Ordered these in November and just the other day the little reflective strap that wraps around the shoe and holds some of the laces snapped. This also happened to the most recent pair we ordered for my other son. They are active and hard on their stuff, but nothing out of the ordinary. Disappointing that this has happened twice.
