A Foot-Healthy Minimalist Athleisure Shoe
The Xero Prio Neo is a minimalist athleisure shoe that lets you feel the ground and experience the true joy of natural foot and body movement. To function at their best, your feet and toes need to move, bend, flex, and feel their environment, and the Prio Neo allows them to do exactly this. It’s a comfortable running, walking, and fitness shoe that encourages proprioception, enables natural toe splay, and helps prevent problems such as bunions, hammertoes, plantar fasciosis, neuromas, and shin splints.
Wide Toe Box, Flat & Flexible Sole, Breathable Upper
The Xero Prio Neo incorporates a wide toe box and zero drop sole, both of which encourage proper posture, balance, and agility, help stabilize the foot and ankle, and enable natural arch support. The Prio Neo’s flexible FeelTrue rubber sole allows your foot to move the way nature intended and become strong on its own, and its thoughtful design—including the breathable mesh upper and moisture-wicking lining—ensures that your feet remain cool and dry during physical activity.
Pairs Nicely With Correct Toes & Other Footgear
The Prio Neo is compatible with other helpful natural footgear, including Correct Toes, Injinji toe socks, Pedag metatarsal pads, and Naboso insoles. This combination of footgear helps rehabilitate the foot and restore normal and natural foot and toe alignment. This sporty vegan athleisure shoe also includes Xero’s iconic adjustable midfoot and heel/instep straps, which allow you to run, jump, lift, and play with confidence. Each Xero Prio Neo shoe weighs about 8.5 oz.
Note: If you are new to using Xero footwear, we recommend that you start in slowly, gradually building up your wear-time and giving your body the chance to adapt to the thinner soles and the increased workload on your feet.

To get the most out of your Xero Prio Neo shoes, the manufacturer recommends that you order your normal US shoe size. For example, if you normally wear a men's US size 11 shoe, consider ordering an 11 in the Xero Prio Neo.
If you're on the fence about what size to order, consider ordering both sizes and then simply return the size that doesn't fit as well for a refund. If you have concerns about sizing, feel free to contact us or Xero customer service.
Sizing Tip #1: To create additional roominess within the shoe, we suggest removing the included (optional) shoe liner/insole; this action does not, in any way, affect the performance of the shoe. Optionally, and to enhance balance, posture, agility, and general foot/body awareness, you might consider adding thin, flexible Naboso insoles instead.
Sizing Tip #2: Correct Toes toe spacers will often add width and length to the foot. If you’re planning to wear Correct Toes with your footwear, we recommend sizing up, especially if you are on the border between sizes.
