The Prio is the most comfortable shoe for everything you do.
Whether you’re out on a run, trying out a new trail, hitting the gym, or toeing a slackline, you’ll love the Prio’s combination of freedom and protection.
The Prio uses the same 5.5mm FeelTrue® rubber as our Z-Trek sandal, so you get great protection while still getting the ground feedback that your feet love. The optional 2mm insole lets you have more or less of a “barefoot feel” depending on your mood.
A women’s 7 is only 6.4 ounces each – you’ll barely notice you have them on.
Our Huarache sandal-inspired reflective heel and instep straps hold your foot securely – with or without socks – while keeping your toes free to move.
Plus, the Prio is made from 100% vegan-friendly materials.
Imagine you’ve just come home after a long day at work or on the trail. If you can’t wait to take your shoes off the moment you walk in the front door, you’ve been wearing the wrong shoes.
Life-Changing comfort and superior performance come from using your feet naturally.
That’s what Xero Shoes let you do.
Natural Fit. Natural Motion. Natural Feel.
Plus Xero Shoes are backed with a 5,000-mile sole warranty.

I have had mine since mid-June 2021 and they are the only shoe I wear now. My daily shoe and running shoe. Removed the insole for greater sensitivity and feel. I run on trails and road. Like that I can feel everything under my feet. Toes have lots of room. I also like the way they look, but that is not very important to me.
4.5 stars rounded up to 5. Don’t love the Prio as much as the HFS, but still a terrific shoe!
I tried 3 sizes and tbh none were a great fit. I had to use a custom insole to get an acceptable fit. The sole started to separate off the shoe and the material started to peel off in under a year so quality control really needs to be looked at. I expected a bit more for $170.
I bought these after having worn through some Hana canvas shoes and still going strong with my second pair of Amuri Z-treks. So I kind of knew what I was getting. Really spacious, really comfortable. The upper is surprisingly like mainstream trainers, but the sole is wide, flat and flexible. As long as you're not pounding concrete too much they are a great shoe.
This is the first pair of barefoot shoes. So I didn't know what to expect. Taking it out o the box I was actually very pleased with how i looked. The sizing also was very good and so it fit very on my first wearing. It's taking a little to get used to the foot feel while exercising, but so far I'm enjoying the experience.
Have to say I'm a bit disappointed with these. I did a 25km walk mainly on roads but also on gravel, grass etc. That was a reasonable distance. I experienced discomfort when flexing both feet for about 3 days after that. Contrast this to an 18km walk across the identical terrain that I did in my Terra Flex Xeros. No pain or chafing. I did a 12km walk a few days ago in the Prios without wearing socks and had some heel chafing. I'd say the Prios are fine for flat roads, cement but not so great for trail walking. Using socks to provide additional protection works for me.
I’ve been a big fan of the minimalist movement and finally took the plunge into Zero heel drop XERO’s. So far so good... the feedback through your feet is beyond my expectations. Also never been a huge fan of buying online but the shoe fitment guide was on point. Thanks Xero Team!
I am very happy with the service and the shoes. So far I am finding them very comfortable.
These are my first pair of Xero shoes. I previously had other brands of minimalist shoes but the soles would wear too quickly. I have used these for gym sessions, road running and casually. They are comfortable and have so far stood up to the punishment that I have given them with no sign of wear yet.
