A true brand leader in quality and style, the Bannister continues to wow with sleek, polished, hand finished leather craftsmanship.
This classic heritage tennis shoe, designed in England by Head Designer Asher Clark and Made in Portugal, effortlessly marries ancient wisdom with modern technology. You'll get total flexibility from the unlined leather as your feet behave as if they are barefoot in style. The 4mm sole is stiffer than other VIVOBAREFOOT shoes but is still allows your Great Toe to engage rapidly with the ground as well as independent rear and fore-foot movement.
The Bannister holds its own in terms of style, quality and barefoot principles; staying true to our unique Pure Barefoot Technology principles and built to our high standards. Your feet will thank you for it as you'll be using them as nature intended.
Handcut Bannister White Mens - The soles are very hard and rigid and I can't feel the ground very well. I even took out the insoles, which didn't help much. The soles on my Gobi shoes are a lot softer. But these look nice and more suitable for business use, which is what I bought them for.
Handcut Bannister Mens - good so far
Handcut Bannister Mens - Unfortunately, I'm not too happy with them. They have potential, but it seems the leather isn't consistent enough. The texture of the left shoe and right shoe are very different from each other and are wearing out asymmetricaly. Also, the shoelace was weak, broke by the 3rd wearing, and needed to be replaced.
Handcut Bannister Mens - These shoes run very large. My first order was normally my size but was about 1 1/2 sizes too large. I looked like I had clown shoes. I had to return them and buy another. The next pair fit perfectly. It was a 9 mens even though I usually get a 10 1/2. They took some getting used to. At first the back of my ankles were very painful because the back of the shoe was rubbing up against them even with wool socks on. This went away in just a few days though and it probably was the shape of my feet, not the shoe. Many people don't like the laces very much. I had no issue with them. In fact, the laces are great. They tie just fine once you break them in and they're very stylish. The shoes will become slightly darker if they come in contact with water but in about 60 seconds the water dries and/or soaks in and the discoloration disappears. One last suggestion for the designers would be to toughen up the soles. Especially the back. After a few weeks now, they are already beginning to wear out (not very much though). I would suggest either a harder rubber or a different material all together. I'm not a shoe designer so I'll leave it up to them. Very stylish shoe. They are just as good as the pictures show them to be. I will buy again!
Handcut Bannister Mens - The sole was very stiff almost brittle, not the soft, flexible quality that was advertised. I teach tai chi and am always looking for a good workout shoe. This had potential but too stiff. Will try Mata.
Handcut Bannister Mens - These are well made shoes, but aren't cut like other VIVOBAREFOOT barefoot shoes I've tried. I usually wear a 10.5, but with these they extended about 1.25 inches beyond my toes and were way too narrow. They were cut more like regular Converse than VIVOBAREFOOT.
Handcut Bannister Mens - These shoes are awesome, they look good and feel as comfortable as a dress shoe has ever felt.
Handcut Bannister Mens - These shoes were difficult to put on and kind of rubbed my foot in a bad way. Also, the color scheme looked different than online and I didn't like it as much.
Handcut Bannister Mens - Nice. I love them. Exactly what I need. I really want to buy the black Porto, also, but the price is a major problem (I bought the Bannister on sale).
Handcut Bannister Mens - Very good, but the leather laces, while looking the part, aren't really man enough for the job and have been replaced already.
On another note, PLEASE MAKE MORE SHOES AT UK SIZE 14!!!!!!!!! Preferably running shoes.
Handcut Bannister Mens - Comfortable and smart. Can wear them all day.
Handcut Bannister Mens - The sole is bit too thick compared to my earlier Vivo shoes. Otherwise they are perfect!
Handcut Bannister Mens - I just didn't like the look of the shoes.
Handcut Bannister White Mens - fit, feel and looks are all great.
Only tiny complaint about laces => although stylish, leather laces are a bit awkward to use.
Handcut Bannister Mens - Delivery was swift.
Handcut Bannister Mens - the shoes are too big... i ordered the same size i had for my other vivobarefoot shoes thta fit well but they were too big...
Handcut Bannister Mens - I really like them - I have been a connoisseur of bench made shoes for a long time and these have the same level of quality in their construction as I would expect from the traditional English manufacturers. They are certainly really comfy and fit my particular footshape. My only two complaints would be the quality of the leather laces - they are not strong enough, and the heel area of the rubber sole needs (for me anyway) to be of a harder, more-abrasion resistant material as I kick my heels out.
Handcut Bannister Uomo - Valutazione servizio : I prodotti sono molto buoni, scarpe ben fatte e robuste. Purtroppo non tutti i modelli sono in vendita come ad esempio le stealth e free trek (ho dovuto acquistare le stealth da un altro sito).Prodotto : Eccellente scarpa ben fatta, stupenda! Avrei preferito la suola con la pianta più larga, come contraddistingue i modelli vivobarefoot. Per questo modello rimane più simile a una scarpa tradizionale.
Handcut Bannister Hombre - Puntuación del servicio : Servicio sorprendente fantásticoProducto : Lo que esperaba, primera calidad y buen precio
Handcut Bannister White Mens - So sweet. Comfortable and stylish. I hope I can keep them clean. Perhaps you could recommend protection/cleaning products for them and even sell them with the shoes. White shoes are a bit of a commitment.
Handcut Bannister White Mens - Haven't had any occasions to wear yet. But tried them out for a walk and am impressed so far.
Handcut Bannister Mens - Did not like the look and returned them. I thought they looked quite different in the website.

Handcut Bannister White Mens - delighted, really nice product
Handcut Bannister White Mens - Questions were answered promptly, and product was shipped promptly.
Handcut Bannister Mens - The bannisters are Worth their price,This is not true for
the other pair I purchased I am longstanding Customer, if you look at my name in the records, but
Handcut Bannister White Mens - Great-looking and pretty comfortable right out of the box, but the leather laces are a bit stiff, making the finishing knot difficult to tie.
Handcut Bannister Mens - Noisy, squeaky shoes. They also squashed my toes.
Handcut Bannister White Mens - They fit OK. Too early to rate anymore as they are a summer wear.
Bannister White Mens - Comfortable if you like minimal shoes. Very, Very Bright white. A few people have made comments that they are too white. The shoes are getting a bit duller, with time and break in. The leather is breaking in nicely. I like them and will probably get a pair in black.
Bannister White Mens - These were wonderfully crafted shoes. However they were not right for my requirements, a little more formal than I thought. Your helpful representative gave me a recommendation of a pair that would suit my needs better. These were dispatched and a refund given for Bannister.
Bannister White Mens - A little stiff for what I was expecting but still a rather nice shoe!
Bannister Mens - Your customer service is just great. You reply rapidly and resolve problems and questions really well. Will definitely keep buying from you directly. Thanks.
Bannister White Mens - Only worn them once so far, but they are very stylish and very comfortable right out of the box. I'm not sure how I feel about the laces yet, since they are only finished white on one side so some of the natural leather color can be seen.
Bannister White Mens - Beautiful shoes. A bit narrower than other Vivobarefoot shoes I have.
Bannister Mens - No more comment
Bannister White Mens - I have 5 pairs of vivos. This Lisbon is my favorite for work. But the Bannister is such an amazing all around shoe. My wife loves seeing me in them. And if she's happy, I'm happy. Good job guys.
Bannister White Mens - Stunning shoes of a very high quality.
Bannister White Mens - I didn't realize the sole was different than all of my other Vivos.... I wasn't expecting a more rigid, cork sole.
Bannister White Mens - These look insane! I get compliments on them every day!
Bannister White Mens - Amazing shoe, but the size isn't true . I ordered a 9 but it seems like it's a 9.5 maybe even a 10. So not too happy about that
Bannister White Mens - Nice styling, but sole a bit too stiff.
Bannister Mens - only wore them a few times last week fo the first time. not enough wears to be absolute. I previously bought black bannistors whose sole wore extremely quickly. I have also some freud 2 winterproof which I have only used for a 2 wk trip in china but these have not worn well when compared to a similar shoe from camper. the side wall is becoming detached.
Bannister Mens - A little stiff but getting better after more use.
Bannister Mens - magnifique chaussures de très bonne qualitée
Bannister Mens - Love the style of these shoes however the leather is strange. No bad strange, just strange. You can tell the leather is high quality but it is rather stiff and when they start developing their authentic creases from the shape and movement of my feet they feel a bit 'bumpy'. I am hoping they soften up a bit through wear.
Bannister Mens - Great looking shoe. However as with most both conventional and Vivobarefoot shoes the toe box is not straight but curved, forcing the big toe towards the other toes. With a "straight" toe box theese shoes (and nearly all Vivo models) would be perfect.
