The Wool Super High is a winterized version of the original released in Spring ‘16. Cut from our superior Semi-Cordovan leather and fully lined in shearling wool, this style features a double leather midsole, rubber half soles for improved traction, our signature hand sewn Goodyear construction, and FEIT’s iconic leather wrapped sole with a double wrap. The Super High builds upon our Hand Sewn High with an even taller collar - the maximum height possible while maintaining our signature one-piece upper with only a single back seam.
Historically, cordovan leather, made from the buttocks part of a horse skin, has been used only for luxury dress shoes. For our FEIT shoes we 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.
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.
