The Hand Sewn High is a luxury handmade version of the classic court sneaker This FEIT interpretation features FEIT’s advanced Goodyear construction, all natural materials and unlined raw edges. These shoes feature all of the subtle details that the FEIT community has come to expect.
We recommend that this shoe be worn bare foot.
Each pair includes both square leather and cotton laces.
The Hand Sewn High is built by hand from start to finish by one master craftsman using an advanced Goodyear construction technique that produces a superior shoe.
The seamless one piece upper of the shoe is made from a single piece of vegetable tanned leather, hand stitched at the heel. Gusseted tongue reinforces the waterproof construction. Leather is left on the last for 10 days where light steam and humidity are used to tighten the leather, ensuring shape and fit. Buffalo leather is used for the footbed.
The leather is dyed with natural pigments so that the hide retains its natural state and ages richly over time. The superior construction technique and use of natural materials ensure that the shoe breathes and does not retain sweat or odor.
As a general rule, if you are between sizes we suggest sizing down. This shoe runs a half size large. An extra cork and buffalo leather insole is included with each pair to assist with in-between sizing.
This FEIT low-pile English suede is vegetable-tanned and therefore 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 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.
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.
