Let customers speak for us
For decades I have been looking for somebody who is trying to produce long lasting things without any compromises.
After spending a long time in the wilderness learning that the only possible shoes are the barefoot ones I found this "mythical" person in England living shoemaker who believes in life lasting quality..
Thank you very much for all three items. Wallet, belt and of course a pair of barefoot shoes. The leather you have recommended looks actually much better in reality than on the website. Usually it is exactly the opposite. Most internet operating companies are spending billions on good photographs. Your labour speaks for itself and the photographs are actually unable to reproduce the pure quality and feeling your work has.
The incredible tasty smell of true leather which jumped out of the box after unpacking it, made me feel again the life in Siberia and Mongolia I had once a long long time ago.. Thanks for bringing this little piece of natural humanity into our over-civilised, overcrowded city "mary go round" chaos.
Wish you all the best.
You have my deepest respect for the creation you bring here.
Customer service was exceptional, Lisandro patiently answered all my questions and gave great advice when I was deciding which shoes to buy. He was also very helpful during the measurement process. These boots are the most beautiful boots I have ever seen. They fit exceptionally well, and the leather is soft and buttery. I barely needed to break them in at all. Now that I have these, I can't imagine ever wearing another pair of shoes. Luckily they have a lifetime warranty so I will never have to.
I found Gaucho Ninja through years of searching for minimalist steel toe work boots online. They’re almost impossible to find and so for much of my work life I’ve assumed that steel toe work boots just hurt feet and are a necessary evil. As a runner I’ve used minimalist shoes for years and find it’s the healthiest way to treat my feet. When I found the Gaucho Ninja website I was super excited but wasn’t ready to spend the money so I waited. I finally went ahead and ordered them and they are incredible! They’re beautifully made and stylish, they feel amazing, and the toe cap is wide so it doesn’t squish my toes. I never actually thought I’d find work boots I love as much as I love these. I’m just really grateful to have beautiful comfortable work boots that I love for once. My only regret is that I waited so long.
Thanks so much Lisandro for your beautiful work!
I just received a pair of bespoke chukka boots from Lisandro. The ordering and measurement were straightforward. Lissando sent me the directions for how to take measurements and we exchanged a few emails selecting the sole type and the leather.
It took a few weeks for Lisandro to make the boots. What's the outcome? The boots look and feel great!. My feet are pretty standard shape and size so most regular shoes fit OK. However, wearing something custom made for you is a unique and wonderful experience.
An extra bonus is the fact that I now know an actual person who made me the shoes that I wear every day. Time to start thinking about another pair :).
Highly recommended and the extra time and money for getting bespoke shoes are totally worth it.
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.
