This modern take on the classic heeled boot features a hand sewn Goodyear welt—a rare accomplishment in women’s footwear—making this style one of the sturdiest, longest-lasting, and most comfortable boots available. Each one-piece semi-cordovan upper is attached to a stacked leather heel with a hand-painted, bi-color base. Vibram rubber sheeting under the forefoot (Black only) provides traction and protection from the elements, and RiRi heel zippers create a minimal silhouette while allowing the upper to mold itself to the wearer’s foot.

Durable, flexible, and breathable natural materials
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.
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.
