We recommend ordering your usual size.

Note: We resized the Prio on August 9th, 2019. If this style used to fit you in a size 9.5, then a size 9 should fit you now.


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.

“Just-Right” 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.

We now recommend ordering your regular size.

Note: As of August 9th, 2019 we changed the sizing for the Men’s Prio. If you had ordered a pair before that date, a half-size down with our current sizing should fit you now.

*If you normally buy a Euro, UK or JP Size, check out the handy conversion chart below.

NOTE: The Prio fits like the TerraFlex, and has a wider toe box than conventional men’s shoes. If your feet are particularly narrow, consider the Women’s Prio. Just make sure to adjust the size by 1.5 (for example, a men’s 8 is the same length as a women’s 9.5).

    Great shoe

    Posted by Brent on 24th Oct 2021

    After alot of back and forth postage in regards to getting the correct size shoe (ended up size 11.5 never been that big before), I finally got my correct fit and boy are they comfortable. Interested to see how durable they are, but after a week, everything is great. Biggest thing is the comfort, barely notice you are wearing them

    Weird in the best way

    Posted by Glenn McGill on 6th Oct 2021

    Such a strange feeling wearing these shoes at first, at first it's like your body tries to adjust as if you're wearing regular shoes. Incredibly comfortable, super light weight, great construction, and fit great!

    Love Them, So Comfortable

    Posted by Todd on 13th Jul 2021

    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!

    Odd fit and poor quality

    Posted by Carl on 8th Jun 2021

    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.

    Ipari Prio for Men

    Posted by David on 26th May 2021

    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.

    First Time Wearer

    Posted by James Mah on 29th Mar 2021

    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.

    Ipari Prio for men

    Posted by Russell on 30th Nov 2020

    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.

    Men’s Prio

    Posted by Brendo on 25th Nov 2020

    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!
