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).

    Excellent Everyday

    Posted by Scott Ricardo on 24th Jul 2020

    These shoes are fantastic for everyday wear and they are durable. I have also used them for Trekking through the Aussie bush and although they were great most of the time, I they did lack a bit of grip when the going got tough but to be fair they weren't designed for that as there are plenty of others shoes in the range that cater to this. All round I love them for everyday use and will buy again.

    A little unusual to get used to, zero drop etc. but I'm really liking them. The fit is wide and therefore excellent for me. The laces tend to twist up which is more aesthetically annoying than anything. Overall very pleased.

    Good shoes, good policies

    Posted by David Moule on 17th Jun 2020

    My size 13's arrived yesterday, after I had received a pair of size 12's and realized that they were a poor fit. Xeros was happy to swap them out, and the new pair is a great fit. They're comfortable enough for my first pair of barefoot shoes and I'm keen to see how they go in terms of longevity.

    Even more comfortable than the Denver

    Posted by Justin Boulos on 6th May 2020

    I loved my Denvor shoes for the weight and comfort. But given my feet are very wide, I had to move to a more forgiving fabric to compensate for my foot shape. Just when I thought a shoe couldn't get more comfortable, this one was even better! And looks super causal. Great shoe!

    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!

    Ipari Prio

    Posted by Damon Isherwood on 25th Feb 2020

    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.

    Amazing shoes and customer support

    Posted by Marcio DaSilva on 5th Feb 2020

    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!
