The seasonless unlined hiker has range. This shoe can be worn in the summer without socks or in the winter with socks. The construction features a Vibram Gumlight lugged outsole that will last for years. This is your 365 days a year boot.
Each pair includes both square leather and cotton laces.
The Hand Sewn Hiker 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 leather hand stitched at the heel. Gusseted tongue reinforces the water-resistant construction. Shoe is left on the last for 10 days where light steam and humidity are used to tighten the leather and enhance 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.
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.
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.
All FEIT Hikers are made from start to finish by one master craftsman using a hand sewn Goodyear construction, whereby the one-piece upper of the boot is sewn to a welt, which is then sewn to a leather midsole. The sole is then filled with cork and a bamboo shank stabilizer is added. Finally, a Vibram outsole is cemented to the midsole using a natural, water-based glue.
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.
