Vivobarefoot Bannister Shoe

Roger Bannister was the first man to run a four-minute mile. But as far as we can tell, the Vivobarefoot Bannister Shoe wasn't named after him, as it's not really made for running. Instead, this casual sneaker — designed in England and made in Portugal — is meant to give you a barefoot-like feeling when you wear it, thanks to a hand-finished and -polished leather upper, leather foxing, a leather footbed, and a 4mm sole that offers natural foot motion without putting your tender toes in harm's way.
