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 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.
Handcut Bannister Ladies - style is great. i'm a little concerned about how long the shoe laces will last as there's already a slight tear.
Handcut Bannister Ladies - You can see the craftsmanship that went into these shoes. There is exceptional attention to detail. Definitely a luxury shoe and worth the price! I will say now I have not tested these outside of my apartment yet, so I can't speak to how they will wear. The sole is thicker and a bit more stiff than the other Vivobarefoot shoes. I usually wear a 7.5-8 and got the 7.5. There is some extra room in the toe area, but I would not want to go smaller. The shoe fits well everywhere else and having more room for my toes is okay for me! I also have the Gobi II Desert boot in a 7.5 and need to wear an insole in that, so they are smaller than the Gobi, if that helps for reference. The box says they have a removable insole, but I do not think that is the case. They are lined with leather. The laces are leather as well. Not sure how they will hold up, but easy enough to replace with leather lacing from a craft store or regular laces. I cannot stop staring at these shoes! Will try to post once I've worn them a bit.
Handcut Bannister White Ladies - I am a regular Vivobarefoot customer. Very comfortable shoes
Handcut Bannister White Ladies - I really like these bannisters though I think they are not really for wearing in the rain due to leather section on sole. I really hope Vivo will continue to bring out more stylish options in the stylish women's range. Much as I would like to, I cannot wear the penny loafers, for example, as 39 is too small and 40 gapes around toe area as i simply do not have a rounded toe form. More designs for narrower feet please - I am a convert with nothing to buy!!
Handcut Bannister White Ladies - Too big in size
Handcut Bannister White Ladies - The return/refund process could be more professional. For example, in showing clear options between refund and exchange. I wanted to exchange my shoes since they sent the wrong size, but they refunded me instead since the sheet didn't specify which one I wanted.
Handcut Bannister Ladies - The shoes are great now, though the size 6 was way too big and I had to re-order a 5, (i always wear a size 6 so I think that a size issue may have occurred during the manufacturing process).
Handcut Bannister White Ladies - Amazing quality footwear. Great fit even for slender feet.
Handcut Bannister Ladies - The first pair were way too big so I sent for a smaller pair which are gorgeous and fit really well. This could be a common problem as I always wear size six and I have ended up with a five.
Handcut Bannister Ladies - I got then with a leather shoelaces. My husband got textile ones... Hmmm
A but stiff at first but got softer with wearing.
Handcut Bannister White Ladies - They are beautiful, the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn.
Handcut Bannister White Ladies - Really comfortable.
Handcut Bannister Ladies - My best pair of shoes since I had foot surgery in August!! My doctor warned me that I would have to wear inserts from now on, but i refused to believe him. Now I know I am right - let the foot have space and it will do fine. Most shoes are too narrow and that puts the wrong pressure on the metatarsal bones and throws off the normal gait and balance - even though I have steel pins in part of my foot I am as close to barefoot as it gets!!
Handcut Bannister Ladies - Well made however the fit was not good (narrow) so I had to send these back.
Handcut Bannister Ladies - These are marvellous. So luxurious and such a simple design
Bannister Ladies - Lovely shoe, sizing totally incorrect, cost me €30 to return (which I consider the fault of Vivobarefoot) as the shoe is a full size bigger than any other vivobarefoot shoe I own (that's 6 pairs) resulting in a total cost of €210 for the shoes.... they're nice but I feel I've been ripped off
Bannister Ladies - Well made & comfortable
Bannister Ladies - Beau look ; très confortables (bien larges) ; belle qualité.
Mais : en ce moment il pleut beaucoup chez moi et j'ai constaté l'apparition d'une sorte de liseré tortueux sous la bande jaune...???
Bannister Ladies - Service was very quick, delivery with no problem, clear communication. Thank you very much :-)
Bannister Ladies - Good product - just not for me. returned.
Bannister Ladies - The look is not bad, but I found the shoe rather rigid compared to other Vivo models I've tried. If the look is refined even further and the shoe made a bit more flexible, it would suit me better. It would be great to have ballerinas with similar high quality leather, good shoemaker work and a sleeker look, too!
Bannister Ladies - Sole a bit stiffer than I would have preferred. Looks good and will hopefully soften with time.Good width.
