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.

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.

FAQs

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

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.

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.

That’s totally up to you (or them).

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

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.

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.

Please go to Xero Shoes Return Policy page to learn about our 100-day return policy.

Best kids shoe

I was so happy when my daughter's feet were big enough to fit into the kids sizes of the Prio. I always used to buy her Converse for the zero drop and fairly flexible out sole but really wanted to get her into some Xeros for the wider toe box. When the Xeros arrived we actually also had some new Converse for her too. She was wearing the Converse for a few days before the Xero Prios arrived and after wearing the Prios, which she loved, and then wore the Converse again she immediately complained that they didn't feel good. They were definitely the correct size, but after wearing the Prios and having more width in the toe box the Converse felt uncomfortable for her, which tells me that she really needs a shoe built for the natural shape of her foot. A few other more practical notes about the Prios, especially important for kids shoes. The color and general style of the girls Prio is great and my daughter loves them. The out sole is very durable and she's been wearing them daily to camp for the past 2 weeks and, aside from getting a bit dirty, they've held up really well. Experience with my own Xero shoes tells me that these will wash up nicely. The laces are also easy for her to tie on her own and will stay tied up. This is a big deal as a parent. The laces have enough structure and stiffness on their own to allow the loops to more easily hold their shape and stay in place as my daughter learns to tie them up on her own, unlike flat laces that quickly flop over when making the 'bunny ears' and turn into a jumbled mess for little fingers. Overall, fantastic kids shoes. Make the switch to a better option to preserve their foot health, without sacrificing comfort, durability, or kid-friendly style.

Special needs

I have a daughter with special needs and it is very difficult to fit her for shoes. The Prios, two pairs, were a great choice for her! Thank you.

Very excited little lady

We are comparing some vivos on the boy, to xeros on the girl. Xero is winning the wear game, and the daughter thinks they are great!
