Description

ALL SALES FINAL.

Originally created in the Victorian era, the Chelsea boot became a staple during World War I. In 1932, the English Chelsea boot was adapted with a sturdier design to be used as a work boot for Australian stockmen.

The FEIT Chelsea draws on this hard-working heritage and is built with the FEIT hand sewn modified Goodyear construction and a rugged Vibram® Gumlite outsole. Our interpretation of this classic boot style utilizes a one-piece leather upper built from a single piece of leather and is hand stitched at the heel featuring a pull tab with eight hand stitches.

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. We refer to this process as a modified hand-sewn Goodyear construction.

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.
