Xero Shoes Prio

Product Review (submitted on 26 December 2017):
Having tried and failed many times over the past 7 years to change from heel striking to forefoot landing I bought these as a last hurrah, they do come up small and I had to send the first pair back so postage cost me almost £12 to get the right size which was a shame, the original size 9 shoes looked like 7.5 so if you are between sizes go for the larger option.

If you have tried to change your running style then these shoes may just do the trick, you simply cannot land on your heels as it hurts, you will get aches and pains so be patient, I found I had to alternate between these and Newton Gravity shoes in order to give my calves and tendons some respite, having now had these 5 weeks I can do an hour in Prios with no aches other than stiffness in my heels which is an old injury that seems to have come back but may well go over time.

I haven't tried running fast in these yet as I am waiting to try it ache free and that day should be soon.

If you want to finally give up heel striking then buy a pair of these, they will do the trick but it won't be overnight, Keith Bateman's Older Yet Faster book/videos put me onto these shoes and I'm pleased he did.
