Description

ALL SALES FINAL.

The Hand Sewn High is our interpretation of a classic court sneaker in a taller height. Built entirely by hand using FEIT modified Goodyear construction, it features all-natural materials, a one-piece vegetable-tanned suede upper handstitched at the heel, and unlined raw edges. During construction, the shoe is exposed to light steam and humidity over 10 days, which helps tighten the leather to enhance both the shape and fit.

Construction

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, before cementing the leather outsole to the midsole using a natural, water-based glue. We refer to this process as a modified handsewn Goodyear construction—this method ensures all FEIT shoes can be resoled.

Material

Cordovan leather, historically made from the buttocks section of a horse skin, has been used only for luxury dress shoes. FEIT shoes use the entire skin—hence the name "semi-cordovan”. The leather is tanned slowly, nourished with natural oils, and shaved. A century ago, when horses were still a driving force behind transportation, hides were plentiful. Now they are extremely scarce and difficult to come by. The use of this highly luxurious and elevated skin allows the foot to breathe and because it is much softer, does not require breaking in.

SIZING

Please see our size chart for measurements.

Size Chart

FEIT shoes come with a separate cork and buffalo leather insole to ensure complete comfort and assist with in between sizes. The natural cork should be fitted underneath the extra buffalo leather insole if the shoe fits a little large. Please note all Mules do not come with additional inserts.
