I ordered these without even caring about the expense. I used the chat function to speak directly with Lisandro who kept me upto date with the process. I love the boots so much.
I waited so long to purchase these, and now that they're here, they are everything I dreamed of! Buttery soft leather, extraordinarily comfortable. I've worn them every day since they arrived. They seem true to (Euro) size, but I made sure to measure in centimeters as suggested, just in case. Thank you, Gaucho Ninja!
I needed a pair of steel toed shoes for work but I couldn’t find anything else without a heel and anything with a heel confuses me enough to check my underwear every five minutes to confirm my gender. They are not as flexible as I had hoped for but time will change that. I don’t think I’ve worn a pair if steel toed shoes with a more spacious toe box and that alone I’m extremely satisfied with. I’m not a fan of ankle high shoes because they take forever to put on and in my ninety plus hour work weeks I don’t like to spend extra time putting my shoes on. The break in period was about thirty seconds and I’m not anticipating any blisters for the foreseeable future. I’ll order another pair in a year or whenever these begin to wear out and hopefully there will be an option that isn’t ankle high then.
Very comfortable shoe. Leather is soft and flexible to conform to foot and toes. Walked eight miles in them on second day and were the most comfortable shoe I have owned. Too early to know how they will hold up but the sole seems strong. I appreciate the hand made artistry.
Really noce boots
I would highly, highly recommend Lisandro and his work to anyone who is looking for top quality, hand-made and custom built shoes of any type. This is my third pair from Gaucho Ninja and it will not be my last. The quality is incredible, the fit (for my custom lasts) is perfect, and I'm only regretful of the fact that I didn't find his work sooner. These are worth the cost, no question.
The Tabis are wonderful - I have some issues with my feet due to kemotherapy - and the Tabis give me that extra layer of protection I need while not interfearing with my flexibility when I train karate. I love them! Perfect quality and beautiful finish.
Today on the farm started out rough with 2 stillborn goat kids and getting my car stuck deep in the spring mud. Then my Desert Blasters came and made not only my day but perhaps my entire year. These were comfortable the moment I put them on, and I haven't wanted to take them off. They're roomy enough for my wide-splayed toes, and flexible enough to stretch around the ball of my foot, which is particularly wide for how small my feet are. The color is gorgeous, and they don't feel like they'll need any breaking in. I wear my boots hard and have been looking for something to replace my Fryes and Blundstones. These are surely it, though I may have to save these as my town boots and get the Gaucho Ninja hiking boots for stomping around on the farm. Thank you Lisandro! They are a masterpiece.
thank you Lisandro
Amazing tabi. Incredible quality. Blown away at how quickly they arrived.
Basically if you are searching for the finest quality leather boot that combines barefoot with a solid, military style here it is. Sizing is a perfect true to size. I’m typically a 45 in moncler, 11 in U.K. dolce +G, Paul smith. Vs other barefoot the style maintains that military look: i always found the Vivo barefoot Scott looking to ‘walking boot’ and campers peu more like a trainer / shoe look.
Lovely warm colour, handmade quality workmanship shines through. Very helpful communication and fantastic packaging
truly made with passion and authenticity 👍
