Detailed Review

The Xero Shoes Prio is the brand’s best-selling shoe series. Since the first Prio model was considered to be more for fitness and for running, the brand decided to make a version that can be worn all day. Most Xero Shoes Prio Reviews agree that this version looks casual and semi-formal, and was specifically designed for people who are always on their feet. 

Materials

The upper of the Prio All Day is made of full-grain leather which is the strongest part of the hide of an animal. What’s great about this material is that it will have more fiber strength as it ages. Showing all the natural markings of the leather, the upper carries a bit of sophistication which many users have appreciated as they have easily shifted from doing casual activities to semi-formal ones in the same shoe.

The outsole is the same 5.5mm FeelTrue sole that is used in Xero’s Denver Boot. Some Xero Shoes Prio Reviews mentioned that the sole felt sturdy. Although the shoes have not been tested much off-road, many have mentioned that it feels protective on pavement and other common surfaces. The rubber the sole is made of is a high-abrasion material that was designed to last long, and it’s covered by Xero’s 5,000-mile sole warranty.

Durability & Grip

It’s important to remember that the Prio All Day is not a pair to be worn when running or hiking on tricky topography. As a daily shoe, however, it showed good grip based on some reviews. Durability-wise, many stated that the Xero Prio feels like it is of good quality and is well-made.

Design & Usage

The Prio All Day looks minimalistic and stylish enough to be worn with different outfits. Although it looks casual, plenty of reviewers have used their pair for semi-formal events and work. Many appreciated that the shoe comes in black, a universal color that can be matched with anything. The Prio All Day doesn’t come in any other colorway besides black but no one seemed to mind.

Almost all agreed that the All Day Xero Prios was designed for comfort. The upper material, full-grain leather, is moveable enough to go with the movement of the foot, allowing wearers to feel unrestricted.

Just like all Xero Minimalist Shoes, the  Prio All Day does not have a midsole. Users who were beginners to wearing barefoot footwear reported that they did not feel comfortable at all. That’s because barefoot shoes need some getting used to especially for those who have worn conventional shoes for years. The Prio All Day will feel uncomfortable at first for newbies, but for those whose feet are used to being barefoot, the Xero Shoes Prio All Day felt pleasant to the feet.

Fit

According to the Xero website, the Prio All Day is true to size. They suggest getting a pair in the usual size measurements. The fine-tuning of the fit can be done by tightening the laces which are connected to heel and instep straps. Inside is a removable insole which also improves the fit and can easily be taken out.

Performance

The Prio All Day has been worn by many in doing errands, walking, training, and even casual running. The sole felt protective but still flexible while doing these activities as mentioned in a good number of reviews. 

The upper is pretty flexible as well because of the material it is primarily made up of. One small drawback is that it’s not very breathable according to a reviewer. It’s best not to use the Prio All Day in very hot weather.

Prio All-Day VS Prio

There are a lot of similarities between the  Prio All Day and the Prio Shoes by Xero. Both have the same outsole material, both have a removable insole, and both are covered by Xero’s 5000-mile warranty.

The main difference between these models is the upper material. While the Prio has a breathable mesh upper that looks sporty. The instep straps also contribute to its sportiness by being reflective. The Prio All Day, on the other hand, has a full-grain leather upper with the usual non-reflective instep straps. It’s not as breathable but it does look more stylish and formal.

Taking a closer look at the lug patterns on the outsole, the Prio All Day is “luggier” compared to the outsole of the Prio. The protrusion of the pattern is not as prominent compared to the All Day version which supplies better grip as based on some reviews online.

Lastly, the Prio Shoes has a kids version which you can check out here. It can be an all-around sports shoe for your little ones. The Prio All Day unfortunately doesn’t have a kids version.

Final call

The Xero Prios All Day is a great shoe for everyday use. It was designed for users to do basically anything in them – going for a stroll, standing all day at work, casual running, and so on. Aesthetically, it’s a good option to transition from day to night and from casual to semi-formal occasions. In all, the  Prio All Day is a great shoe if you’re looking for a barefoot option that you can wear all day without feeling restricted and uncomfortable.

is it possible to use in all seasons?

Yes, the Prio All Day can be worn in any season. Do take note, however, that the upper material on this shoe is not very breathable. It may not be too comfortable to wear if you're feet get easily hot.

What are things I can do wearing it?

The Prio All Day was designed to be a do-it-all shoe. Users have done practically anything and everything in them. There are limitations such as running on highly technical terrain, but aside from that, the Prio All Day is a great companion for everyday activities.
