Made with the finest hand cut Portuguese leather, we tip our hats and raise a well cut glass to the decidedly smart Lisbon.
The Lisbon is our beautifully crafted formal dress shoe. Available in polished black or brown leather and free of fuss or embellishment, besuited style breathes effortlessly with every step; a shoe for a true gentleman. The leather footbed is durable yet comfortable and will form around your foot. The Lisbon is a premium shoe designed to be hard wearing and comfortable, and as ever, finished to our highest crafting standards.
Like all our hand cut range, you'll get total flexibility from the unlined leather. The 4mm sole is stiffer than other Vivobarefoot shoes but still allows your toes to engage with the ground beneath you. Over a period of three to four weeks, the sole will soften and adapt specifially to your foot, offering you the true benefits of natural movement.
Handcut Lisbon Mens - I don't really know yet since I bought them for a wedding which hasn't happened yet, but they definitely seem less compfrtable than I expected
Handcut Lisbon Mens - Good fit
Handcut Lisbon Mens - The best dress shoe I have ever worn. Thank you for saving my feet.
Handcut Lisbon Mens - Very high quality shoes, but they run large. Had to exchange for half size down. Once I receive the new ones, I'm sure they'll be amazing.
Handcut Lisbon Mens - I liked the quality of the shoe but the shoe size was too big and I didn't like how rounded the front of the shoe was.
Handcut Lisbon Mens - The shoe is not at all what I expected. In the ads and on the web page, it looks like essentially a better looking replacement for the "everyday street" shoe I bought about 2 years ago(which by the way is not available anymore) --except it is not a replacement at all. Unlike what you'd expect from Vivobarefoot, it is not a soft soled shoe at all. It has a hard sole --indeed hard enough so that my shoemaker put on heel plates with tacks to demonstrate that it was the same as any other shoe sole. There is no feel of my foot on the surface as I walk, which is supposed to be the distinguishing feature of Vivobarefoot. The shoe in not nearly as supple and flexible as a typical Vivobarefoot shoe, although the picture on the web site shows it bending like any other shoe. Because of the lack of suppleness, it is just like packing any other shoe in a suitcase. I waited months to get this shoe in black in a US size that would fit me. it is a real disappointment.
This is my second bad experience with Vivobarefoot in a row. I bought Ultra II. When I want to use it this summer to run along the beach front, it was a real disappointment. First of all, it does not drain sand, although other water shoes on the market do drain the sand. Second, the inside surface is too coarse. It was literally rubbing my feet raw to the point of bleeding unless I covered my feet with socks or tape --which defeats the purpose of a water shoe. Finally, the sole is pretty hard if the idea of the shoe is to give a barefoot feel. I had to give the shoes up. I suppose I can still use them with socks to run on regular surfaces but that is not why I bought them and it will still not give me a barefoot feel like the Evo Pure which I use for surface running but I may be able to use the Ultra II if and when I run on trails..
I am rethinking my whole use of Vivobarefoot and wondering if I am not better off with some of the other minimalist shoe offerings that are around. My sons have shifted to them and are quite satisfied.
Handcut Lisbon Mens - Super comfortable
Handcut Lisbon Mens - Very good. Exactly what you want in terms of delivery etc
Handcut Lisbon Mens - The quality seems good, love the looks & fit
Handcut Lisbon Mens - Just perfect. I'm sure gona buy the black ones. But I have to earn some money first, they are expensive as hell... But sure worth it.
Handcut Lisbon Mens - The sole was too stiff and the shoe felt clumsy. The shoes were also very heavy.
Handcut Lisbon Mens - Absolutely love these shoes, all the benefits of being barefoot in a dress shoe. Perfect for work they look great with a suit.
Handcut Lisbon Mens - As above. Grateful for more dressy shoe in a zero rise.
Handcut Lisbon Mens - The shoes feel more rigid than I expected.
Handcut Lisbon Mens - More colours please!
Handcut Lisbon Hombre - El paquete de envio no era el adequado, enviando la caja de zapatos directametne dentro de una bolsa. La caja llego dañada y con los zapatos fuera de la caja. Por suerte no presentan ningún desgarre.
El modo de envio del producto no esta a la altura de la calidad del mismo, o del precio que se pide por ello.
Handcut Lisbon Mens - Ottime scarpe formali anche se danno l'impressione di essere più grandi di quanto siano realmente. Il comfort e feedback non è comunque al pari di altri modelli comunque meno formali come le RA.
Handcut Lisbon Mens - Very comfortable
Handcut Lisbon Mens - Greater leather, look like 'normal' shoes in that they are not too broad at the front. No VB symbol as well - this is essential.
Handcut Lisbon Mens - Best looking 'barefoot' shoe I have seen. Comfortable for a formal shoe though without the supreme flexibility of the Vivobarefoot running shoes due to different sole. Nonetheless, was impressed so ordered another pair.
Handcut Lisbon Mens - great shoes, but arrived damaged and I could not exchange for undamaged pair.
It would be great if you offered a vegan shoes similar to Ra model.
Handcut Lisbon Mens - Fantastic
Handcut Lisbon Mens - Finally a shoe I can wear for work with zero drop, wide toe box and looks good. As I wear five fingers outside of work had struggled previously to find a suitable dress shoe.
Handcut Lisbon Mens - Good
Handcut Lisbon Mens - Beautiful shoes. Great philosophy.
Handcut Lisbon Mens - Leather ended up looking less smart than on the picture, but Inrealise that at rhis price point this is excellent value. I can of course better it through shining and will do it!
Handcut Lisbon Mens - inbetween size
Handcut Lisbon Mens - I am surprised at how solid the sole is. I expect this will soften over the coming weeks as I wear them. Also, at the price, I think they could look significantly better - they are quite basic looking. It's nice to have room for my foot to follow it's natural motion, but you could have this AND improve the look of them - the front could be extended and brought more central so that the anatomical outside curve around the toes doesn't look so goofy.
Handcut Lisbon Mens - Very pleased with this shoe. One of the only barefoot shoes that can pair with a suit in a legitimate white-collar work environment.
Handcut Lisbon Mens - I like the idea behind the shoe. Would like a tan option. Keep perfecting the design.
Handcut Lisbon Mens - very fast and reliable delivery
Handcut Lisbon Mens - Excellent shoes ... very comfortable.
Handcut Lisbon Mens - So far the only dress shoe in its class. I imagine it's hard to get the feel of the ground while maintaining the classy look. I think that getting a better feel of the ground is the only place for improvement.
Handcut Lisbon Mens - Great shoe
Handcut Lisbon Mens - runs large but very confortable and light. Will rate excellent next year if resistant.
Handcut Lisbon Mens - Love the shoes. Alternate designs for zero drop wide toe box dress shoes would be nice. Black and brown are identical.
Handcut Lisbon Mens - Descent quality, too small, still need to return for a larger size, couldn't get foot to fit, despite being 1 size too small. e-mail: *personal details removed by Feefo*
Handcut Lisbon Mens - The shoes are good, I have a slightly smaller pair than I would like but the ideal size is not an option. I would recommend having a wider selection of sizes.
Handcut Lisbon Mens - Would be even better if you could pay with Maestro or Bancontact on top of just a credit card.
Handcut Lisbon Mens - you should list the EU eqivalent size on the US website
It was hard to find out my correct size because I couldn't find consistent information so I ordered 2 pairs and will return one
Handcut Lisbon Mens - Still breaking them in.
Handcut Lisbon Mens - Returns service is excellent
Handcut Lisbon Mens - Very handsome
Handcut Lisbon Mens - gorgeous shoes! I already own about 15 pairs of various vivobarefoot shoes, and these are truly the tops... just wish I could afford more of these hand made models. waiting for another chance at a deep discount ;-)
Handcut Lisbon Mens - These are nice, soft and comfortable and make my feet feel like they are in slippers, not shoes
Handcut Lisbon Mens - These are beautiful, high-quality shoes. My husband fell in love with his Vivo Gobi shoes and wanted to continue the great feeling into his work wardrobe. The Lisbon are perfect A little stiffer than the soft suede Gobis, but they will break-in beautifully and become like a second-skin.
Handcut Lisbon Mens - Nice, but very expensive.
Handcut Lisbon Mens - comfortable -
Handcut Lisbon Mens - Love the sneakers I bought in a size 45. Shoes in a 45 were gigantic. Ordered a 44 which is better. Just ordered two more 44 which seem snug. Is there no size between a U.S. 10.5 and 11.5? I seem to be stuck in that middle size. Would of .africa shoes very comfortable. Ra 2 Hopewell are extremely stiff and u comfortable
Handcut Lisbon Mens - Very nice, best barefoot dress shoe yet. Still just a touch clunky-looking & stiff (as a result, the fit is a bit loose). The ideal for me would be something very similar in styling but with softer leather like the Ra. Not sure if this is realistic...
Handcut Lisbon Mens - Fast, free shipping. Packaging badly damaged in transit ( obviously not VB's fault) but shoes were in great shape
Handcut Lisbon Mens - The bottom of the left one felt a little crooked
Handcut Lisbon Mens - Very good looking shoe. Not as wide in the toe box as other vivo's. This makes them less comfortable, but look more professional. The only problem I find, is that the inside of the shoe isn't as tall as other vivo's. When I walk my toes feel a bit of pressure on top. I'm hoping the stretch out over time.
Lisbon Mens - Straight forward ordering, Speedy delivery, No fuss returns - can't be bettered
Lisbon Mens - Please make them more water resistant.
Lisbon Mens - Fit: They were too big and the next size down would be too small. Style: In person, they look like clown shoes, exacerbated by their being too large.
Lisbon Mens - The Lisbons are the most comfortable dress shoe I own, to the extent that I really can't make myself put on any of my old shoes. A couple of thoughts on ways you could make them even better: (1)they don't hold a shine very well; (2)think about improving traction on wet surfaces - they're terrible on ice. Also, if you tweaked the style even just a little, I would buy multiple pairs. Best barefoot-style dress shoe on the market.
Lisbon Mens - Some cuffing on the rear heel that caused an instant blister. Nothing a bandaid could not fix.
Lisbon Mens - Good shoe, but not worthy of the price tag.
Lisbon Mens - .. but the quality of the leather suggests to me that the product is more a prototype barefoot office shoe (made in a low batch, for early adopters); would be nice to see future editions use a higher quality of leather (especially when the cost of the shoe is the same as something of the craftsmanship of a Cheaney);
Lisbon Mens - I love them. I just wish I didn't have to order them from Europe to get the right size.
Lisbon Mens - Still wearing them in. Happy with first impressions.
Lisbon Mens - Sole bad quality compared to the other Vivobarefoot products. Not good value for money.
Lisbon Mens - Best looking and comfort shoes I have ever experienced.
Lisbon Mens - Best dress shoe so far from Vivobarefoot. Wish the upper were a bit softer, more like the Porto. The lining seems unnecessary for this shoe. I prefer the unlined Porto for comfort. The Lisbon is the first Vivobarefoot shoe I've owned that is needing a break-in period.
Lisbon Mens - Shoes that are very comfortable. Like to see size 6 (40) in all styles
Lisbon Mens - Good company (I can use no other shoes now). How could they improve? Stock availability sometimes, I would guess, plus durability of some of the shoes (stitching, etc.)
Lisbon Mens - Super comfy!
Lisbon Mens - Not elegant enough
Lisbon Mens - Very good, but there should be an automatic deduction of sales tax when shipping outside EU. Vivobarefoot was kind enough to refund me the tax upon request, or else I would have paid double sales tax (always paying import tax when receiving).
Lisbon Mens - Phenomenal service!
Lisbon Mens - I have been waiting for a product like this for decades!
Lisbon Mens - It looks very different than the pictures and very strange to our society.
Lisbon Mens - The Size is a little more high than the other shoes in 45 europe.
Lisbon Mens - I have been using my Lisbons for about two weeks now. They definitely fulfill the promise of a zero drop, minimalist dress shoe. The toe box is sufficiently wide and at no point have I felt any sense of tightness or discomfort while wearing them. While before I used to take off my oppressive dress shoes every chance I'd get, I can now let my feet rest comfortably in my Lisbons throughout the day.
There are a couple of points of improvement, though. The sole, though thin, feels very stiff and unflexible. I understand the need to sacrifice flexibility for durability and form, but I was wondering if it was possible to make the shoe even a bit more "fluid" and glovelike. As of now, it is more like a thin, rigid leather shell than a regular barefoot shoe. This is not so much a problem when standing still, but upon walking I find myself longing for a more immediate barefoot experience.
Second, I would like you to improve the aesthetics of your current line of dress shoes. The Lisbons work fine, especially in brown, but they are still a far cry from what most people (in Europe) think of when they think formal dress shoes. To be frank, I would not wear the Lisbons to anything fancier than business meetings, such as Weddings or Cocktail parties. Perhaps introduce a model that is more like the classic black oxford (think Allen Edmond's Park Avenue)?
Lisbon Mens - everything worked out smoothly. I do wish I had been able to see as I looked at the product online that the insoles of the Lisbon men's cannot be removed (unlike other barefoot products). other than that, great service, great product,
