The slipper is a modern interpretation of a classic summer shoe – the moccasin. The seamless upper is built from one piece of leather, handstitched at the heel, which will mold and shape to the wearer's foot. Feit shoes comes with an extra set cork and buffalo leather insoles to assist with in-between sizing. The additional leather insole can be used alone, or the cork can be inserted underneath the leather for extra padding. If between sizes, take one size down for a snug and secure fit.
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.
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.
