A classic court sneaker stripped-down to the bare essentials and re-stitched by hand from a single piece of leather. Raw, unlined edges highlight the simplicity of natural materials, while exposed stitching recalls the human craftsmanship behind each pair. Vibram rubber sheets pad and protect the sole from water as well as general wear and tear.
All Feit shoes are made from start to finish by one master craftsman. The one-piece upper is sewn by hand directly to the midsole. A cork footbed and a bamboo shank stabilizer are added, then the leather outsole is cemented to the midsole using a natural, water-based glue. They refer to this process as a modified hand-sewn Goodyear construction. Goodyear construction ensures all Feit shoes can be resoled for longevity.
Feit footwear is mainly built using vegetable-tanned leather. Vegetable-tanned leather breathes as in nature. It is non-irritant, soft to touch, ages richly over time, and biodegrades. The leather remains neutral regardless of the temperature and does not retain sweat or odor, allowing FEIT shoes to be worn barefoot and get better with age.
These shoes comes with an extra set cork and buffalo leather insoles to assist with in-between sizing. If you are in between full sizes, the additional leather insole can be used alone or with another cork pad, inserted underneath the leather for extra padding. Shoes will stretch some with wear. We recommend having them fit snugly at first wear.
