Tens of thousands of people have worn Xero Shoes sandals for millions of miles of running. But sometimes a shoe is a more appropriate option.

The Prio is a high-performance, true minimalist running and fitness shoe.




Why you’ll love the Ipari Prio


Natural FIT - a wide toe box lets your toes spread and relax. Plus the “XERO-drop” sole (non-elevated heel and low-to-the ground) allows for proper posture, balance and agility.

Natural FUNCTION - the Prio is flexible enough to let your feet bend, move, and flex the way that feet are supposed to. Plus, they’re so lightweight, you’ll barely know you have them on. A Men’s size 9 shoes is only 7.6 ounces / 215 grams each.

Natural FEEL - the Prio uses the same 5.5mm FeelTrue rubber sole from the Z-Trek sandal, so you get great protection while still getting the ground feedback that your feet and brain like. The Prio truly lets you Feel The World.

Vegan friendly materials - no animal products in the Prio.

Huarache inspired design - the heel strap is not only eye-catching but functional.

Adjustable instep strap - the “inverted V” straps aren’t sewn down, so you can use them to lock in your instep while keeping your toes free to move.

Reflective straps - the middle section of the heel and instep straps is highly reflective for after dark.

Optional 2mm insole - if you need a bit of extra protection, add in the optional 2mm insole.

Barefoot friendly - wear the Prio with or without socks.


Why is it called "Ipari Prio"?


The Prio is about proPRIOception. Your feet are supposed to move, bend, flex and feel… the Prio lets you do that. Take them for a spin and FEEL the Freedom, FEEL the fun, and FEEL the World.


How to pick the correct size

  1. Fantastic Review by Richard

    Rating 


    These really are great if you want a simple and comfortable zero drop running shoe. I have short, wide and deep feet (size 6 UK) I bought the UK 7.5 size and they are perfect . Having had them a few weeks I have run about 40 miles on roads and trails and they are so light and comfortable I feel like I could run all day in them. They are a great all purpose and durable shoe so possibly not suitable for more specialist use and I do need to test them out on a longer route and in different conditions. However I am very pleased that I appear to have found my perfect running shoe at last. (Posted on 14/05/2017)

  2. Amazing - best shoes I've ever worn Review by Scottydog40

    These shoes are amazing! Straight out of the box they are instantly comfortable. I've searched for, and tried on so many pairs of trainers but never have I had a pair like these. I'm so impressed with them, I've already recommended them to friends and this is the first time I have liked anything so much that I have felt the need to write a review. Thank you Xero shoes, please don't stop making them!

  3. Run Small Review by Gonk

    I must admit I'd been looking forward to Xero's running shoe for a long time.

    First off do be aware that these run seriously small, and I could have sized up one whole size no problem. I wear the Venture and Z-Trek in US size 9 and have often wished over the course of last year that I'd ordered a smaller size. This is not the case with the Prio. I'm a UK 8.5 in Clarks, Walsh, Inov-8. The Prio in US 9/UK 8.5 leaves me with well under 1 cm between toes and the end of the shoe. The forefoot area is only just wide enough for my foot. So just OK for casual use or the odd jog/fast run as long as thin socks (or no socks - the interior of the shoe is plenty soft enough for that) are worn. I didn't even try the supplied extra insole.

    The uppers feel sturdy and soft, the styling is definitely a little quaint and there is quite a bit of padding around the ankle (I would have preferred far less). The huarache style straps, if I may permit myself this observation, are more part of the structure of the upper than true functioning huarache straps. Still, a nod to Xero's origins, a fun design element, and reflective (always a good thing in my opinion).

    The soles are excellent, great grip and protection, I still think Xero has the best soles in the business. I cannot stress this enough

    In sum: small sizing, warm upper, styling a matter of taste, first-rate soles. I feel this is more of a general fitness or parkour shoe than a 'proper' runner. For most running I reckon the sandals, especially the outstanding Z-Trails, are more suitable.

    My plan was to use these where sandals are not always quite as acceptable (workplace etc.), and for this they will be fine. If you are planning long runs or walks in them though, do be generous with your size. (Posted on 14/03/2017)
