Get the right size for your Prio
Shoe sizing, especially online, is not a perfect process. That’s why we have a free exchange policy.
Because the foot is three-dimensional, any two-dimensional measuring tool, such as a ruler or Brannock device®, can only approximate your true shoe size. Manufacturers model their shoes on different foot shapes which is why you might be an 8 in one brand and a 9 in another.
The Prio fits “true-to-size” or a TINY bit small. So you’ll probably be okay selecting your “usual” shoe size.
NOTE: The width of the Prio is approximately EE width.
|NOTE for Hana owners — The Prio is a bit wider than the Hana and, with the multi-part upper (compared to the Hana’s single-piece upper), it’s more accommodating for wider feet. Also, if you already own a pair of Hana, we suggest going up 1/2 size from those; some people like a bit more room for a performance shoe.
Sizing for a shoe is different than a sandal, so if you own one of our sandals, that doesn’t mean you’ll pick the same size in the Prio.
After following these instructions, if you think you’re “between sizes,” go up a 1/2 size.
2 Simple Steps to the Correct Fit
1) Measure your foot
- Place a piece of paper against a wall (if you have VERY large feet, use a piece of newspaper.
- If you plan to wear socks with your Prio, put those on
- Place your foot on the paper, with your heel against the wall.
- Make a mark on the paper at the furthest point away from the wall… this will either be just in front of your big toe or second toe
- Take a ruler and measure from the edge of the paper to the mark you made.
Here’s a video showing the process:

Most comfortable shoes I’ve worn and trained in...I especially love the wide toe box...I’ve got paddles for feet and even good minimalist shoes squash them a bit at first...I just end up being barefoot most of the time!
My first pair of 'barefoot' shoes. I did all the online research - watched videos comparing all the different brands, and decided on Xero because of the wide toe box mainly: I hate feeling constrained in shoes! Anyway, took the plunge and purchased a pair, and so far I am completely happy. I can feel my feet relax when I stand in them. I have yet to put them through some rough terrain running, but despite being roomy they grip my foot well, so I think they will do just fine.
I just wanted to say that these shoes are worth every penny. The customer support here in Oz has been outstanding as well, promptly providing aid with an exchange. Really can't say enough good things about these shoes, I use them for everything. Formal work and social situations, commuting by bicycle and running around. Highly recommend!
These are great shoes BUT it is apparent that the pair that I got is a bit defective. Within a day of wearing them I've noticed that the adhesive holding the sole onto the right shoe has already failed on the inner left side. I'm a bit dissappointed with this but it isn't a reason enough to go through the whole return process. I sincerely hope that they are able to maintain a higher level of quality control into the future and continue to make excellent products.
I've run around 40km in them now and they're fantastic. Look out for sore calves as you get used to the flat profile and zero drop, but I love the feedback you get from these. They're at their best on the trail, but they're pretty comfy on the road too.
these shoes just tick all the boxes - lightweight, rugged and perfect for barefoot running
I love these shoes, It's like i'm running barefoot with the added security of covered toes.
I was already used to Zero Drop Shoes, but wanted something more minimal.
I also own some Xero Amuri Clouds, but find i am tentative in how i run.
With the Prio I get the best of everything. Zero drop, Barefoot Feel, Wide Toe Box and Covered Toes.
They feel so light on both Road and Trail.
With the almost barefoot feel, the trails are strangely so much more fun!
Fit wise, i didn't change from my previous brand shoe (Altra). US11.5.
Great Shoe, Love them!
I’ve worn minimalist shoes for the past 9 years and these are by far the most comfy i’ve ever worn
I can’t recommend them highly enough
Very comfortable lightweight running shoe. I have only been for two runs in them but so far so good. I initially ordered the largest women's size but I had to send them back as too tight on one foot. I had to get the equivalent of the next size up in the mens, which was fine but they seem a bit wider on my foot than the women's were. It's unfortunate the women's don't go up to US size 12 considering they are small fitting shoe. Other than that I am very happy with them.
