We recommend ordering your usual size.

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).

    Prio: Multi-Purpose athletic shoe

    Posted by james Budin on 8th Nov 2023

    Great product right out of the box. Fit's perfectly. I've only had them 3 days and have worn them constantly, my feet and joints feel great. I'm already thinking about the next Xero shoe I need for other uses!!

    These shoes are robust and offer the flexibility needed for maximum exertion under full sole bend.

    Enriching experience

    Posted by Omkar j on 1st Aug 2023

    A wonderful feel for the feet. Appropriate fit, catchy design, comfortable sole. Value for money. The breathability of materials is efficient for regular use and casual activities, but for intense activities and long durations it can be improved in further designs.

    Great all rounder

    Posted by Aaron on 12th Jul 2023

    This is the 2nd pair of the exact same style. I wear them every day casually, to work (admittedly I work in an allied health clinic/gym), and also for training. i also wore them travelling though SE Asia and they've held up well

    Xero Prio

    Posted by Jackson on 7th Jul 2023

    I Love my Prios, this is my second Prio purchase. Only down side is after 9 months I have almost worn a hole through the bottom of my first pair. I just wish the soles would last longer as they are an expensive purchase and I may have to find a cheaper alternative in the future

    Second pair

    Posted by Brock Nixon on 30th May 2023

    A Fantastic shoe. Definately worth the money. Was my first bearfoot style of shoe and was very happy with the performance and I am hooked on the feel. I mainly used them for Training in the gym and a bit of running and they've held up well.

    Almost perfect

    Posted by Joe on 26th May 2023

    As a teacher and runner, I’m on my feet all day. These shoes are ridiculously comfortable. Let me give you an example. Recently I was asked to referee basketball games all day. Throughout all of the hours I was on my feet, the Prio did not let me down. My feet were well supported and it was like I didn’t referee at all. The rubber sole is highly durable. After 2 years of daily wear, you can barely see any impact on the sole. However, there is a minor point I would like to mention. The upper needed a better glue to remain attached to the soul for a longer period of time. That said, I have just bought my next pair of Xero shoes. I simply love having them on my feet more than any other shoe.
