Further information about this product

A tennis inspired premium lifestyle shoe exhibiting the traditional and high quality shoe making techniques of Portugal. The hand finished, polished leather and leather foxing looks the part whilst the leather footbed will feel great and get better with age.

The Bannister holds its own in terms of style, quality and barefoot principles; staying true to our unique Pure Barefoot Technology principles and is designed and built to our high standards. Your feet will thank you for it as you'll be using them as nature intended.

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.

Being barefoot has never looked this smart. This classic heritage tennis shoe, designed in England by Head Designer Asher Clark and Made in Portugal, effortlessly marries ancient wisdom with modern technology. The Bannister gives you premium luxury with all the hallmarks of a classic; the clean lines, unfussy tie-up lacing, unlined leather as well as our revolutionary patented ultra-thin, puncture-resistant sole.


Transitioning to barefoot. Learning to walk before you run and gradually relearning the skill of natural movement is best done slowly.
