Handcut Bannister

Classic tennis shoe made in luxury polished leather

A true brand leader in quality and style, the Bannister continues to wow with sleek, polished, hand finished leather craftsmanship.

Style code: 300036-01

Black Dark Brown
4 stars (16 Reviews)


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 will soften with a little time, so you’ll still get that total flexibility and plenty of toe wiggle room.

The Bannister holds its own in terms of style, quality and barefoot principles and is built to our high standards. Take to the streets, the club or wherever your feet want to explore, and let them do it all as nature intended.

  • A quick lunch and a decent chat
  • Commuting to work and fighting for a seat
  • Catching a late film with your other half
  • Discovering the wonders of Shanghai.

Bannister White Mens - A little stiff for what I was expecting but still a rather nice shoe!

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 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 - 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 - 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 - 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.

4 stars17 November 2014

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.
