Description

Please choose carefully as all sales are final

Our craftsmen are among the most skilled in the world and our Bamboo Military Hiker showcases this fact. The highest level of strength, skill and discipline is required to hand-build this shoe from start to finish.

  • US Sizing. See more below. 

Craftsmanship and materials are brought to the forefront of this design via an exposed industrial bamboo shank and exposed nails on the sole. We used bamboo for its inherent strength-to-weight ratio; it is one of the strongest natural materials in the world. The vast majority of global footwear production uses metal or plastic as stabilizers. The handsewn Goodyear welted construction—exposed on the toe of the outsole—ensures stability and traction.

The inner section of the Bamboo Military Hiker midsole is made of cork that increases breathability and reduces odor as it is naturally anti-fungal. The Vibram® Gumlite lugged outsole will withstand years of heavy wear. The handsewn Goodyear welt stitching is highlighted throughout to further celebrate the quality work of our makers.
Each pair comes with a set of alternate black leather and white waxed cotton laces.

Due to the rigorous and lengthy construction process, the Bamboo Hiker is made in a highly limited run. 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. 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.

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 is added, then the leather outsole is cemented to the midsole using a natural, water-based glue.

Goodyear construction ensures all FEIT shoes can be resoled.

Sizing

Each pair of 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 you are between sizes, you can either size up and use the included insoles, or size down and use no additional insoles. All FEIT shoes include an additional buffalo leather insert that may cause slippage if worn with a sock. Flip the insert if friction is scarce.

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.
