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 July 31st, 2019 we changed the sizing for the Women’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 wide, consider the Men’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).

    Fantastic all round training shoe. Lots of room in the toe box & super light. Let’s your muscles do what they were designed for without restrictions like other brands.

    Happy so far

    Posted by Fiona on 26th Jan 2023

    These are my first barefoot shoes and they are quite comfortable. I've been wearing them indoors and am just starting to wear them for walking outdoors. It's good to have the removable innersole as an option for longer walks.

    Laces too short. Had to take lace out of last holes to do them up. Asked for longer laces but was told they don't have spare laces. Not good enough, product should be complete

    Comfiest shoes I've ever worn

    Posted by Rhianna on 30th Oct 2022

    I honestly thought these shoes were a gimmick. I've been wearing cushioned running shoes with custom orthotics for years. I've been stuck wearing the same kind of shoe all the time and if I change to wear something dressier I get pain in my left foot and my toes go numb and burn due to three Morton's neuromas. This type of shoe was recommended on Instagram (@thebarefootsprinter) to be more in line with how feet and toes want to move. I've found these shoes great, they're just the right amount of protection from the ground but give really nice grip and feedback. My feet have been able to breathe and flex completely unrestricted. I haven't been getting flare-ups of neuroma pain. It's been really amazing. I thought I would never be able to survive without orthotics but I've been able to go on 5km walks with no problems. I'm also really picky with sensory feelings of shoes, but with these, I can almost forget I'm wearing shoes at all; they really are that comfortable.

    Really loving the wide toe. First time in barefoot shoes so transitioning slowly. Week 3 and already spending most days wearing them.
