Smart and stylish (but not formal) option

I bought these to wear at my wedding – dress code: 'glad rags and party frocks' – and they were the perfect choice.

They're not the most comfortable pair of Vivo Barefoot shoes I own, but that didn't stop me dancing in them for hours on end.


I bought the leather bannister shoes for my fiance and he loves them. They arrived really quickly and came with Vivobarefoot's 100 day money back guarantee. We now own four pairs of Vivobarefoot shoes between the two of us. They are incredibly comfortable and changes the way you hold your body giving you more contact/stability with the ground! Buy a pair - you will love them.

Not up to VivoBarefoot standards

Although these shoes look good, they are not, for me, anything like the other VivoBarefoot shoes I have (and I have three other styles). These shoes are not "fan shaped" as the company says their shoes are - they are not foot shaped, but long and narrow. Nor (even after wearing them for 7 days) do they have the barefoot feel: they are stiff alongthe sole, and do not give me the feeling of walking barefoot, as do my Ra II shoes, my Porto Rocket boots, or my two pairs of Ababa espadrilles.
One good thing: VivoBarefoot do do refunds (hopefully a full refund: I have yet to send these shoes back).
