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).

    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!

    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.

    Wear them daily

    I love these shoes. I wear to work the gym everywhere. I only wish there was a wider option. My toes are still getting squeezed on the side.

    Great Shoe

    Posted by DH on 21st Sep 2020

    These shoes are super comfy and i'm able to keep proper walking form (without heel striking). I can't wait to get rid of all my old shoes.

    These are my first pair of barefoot shoes and I absolutely love them! The ladies style I wanted wasn't in stock so I bought a size and a half smaller in mens and they fit perfectly. Incredibly comfy and so light and the extra space in the toe box is great! My calf muscles are not as excited as I am about my shoes but they'll come around in time. :)
