WARRANTY & REPAIRS
Do your shoes carry a warranty?
We stand behind everything we make and guarantee our products will perform as intended.
Each pair of shoes we sell is handmade by a master craftsman and from time to time may need to be repaired. Each pair of shoes will wear differently from person to person and vary from style to style. Factors such as terrain, weight, and intended use will have an effect on how quickly the product wears. Sole replacement, wear to wool interior, scratches, scuffs, water damage, and insole replacement are considered normal wear and tear and are not considered defective.
FEIT guarantees all Vibram soled shoes including the Unlined Hiker, Wool Hiker, Double Stitchdown, Wool Double Stitchdown, Artic Hiker, and Hiker Mid against any manufacturer defect for the life of the product. If a defect occurs as a result of normal use, FEIT will repair the issue free of charge.
FEIT guarantees all shoes from our “Hand Sewn Collection” including the Hand Sewn High, Hand Sewn Low, and Hand Sewn Slipper against any manufacturer defect for one year from the purchase date. This includes a ripped stitch and separated leather wrap. FEIT reserves the right to determine if the damage is due to construction or normal wear. If a defect occurs within one calendar year from the purchase date, FEIT will repair the issue free of charge.
If you have any repair issues that are not covered under warranty, or would like to know if your repair is covered, please contact us directly at email@example.com or visit one of our retail locations for more information.
WHERE OUR PRODUCTS ARE MADE
Where are your products made?
FEIT products are designed in New York and made all over the world—primarily in the United States, Italy, China, and Japan. The origin depends on the product itself, the method of construction, and the location of the best craftspeople fit for the task.
FEIT founder Tull Price has been making footwear apparel and accessories for over 20 years. His footwear is produced globally in collaboration with factories in Italy, Portugal, Spain, England, Romania, Asia and the U.S. He is constantly searching for the best makers and the best results.
At the core of Feit footwear is an original set of lasts developed in Civitanova Marche, Italy with the help of Tull's favorite last maker: Veddicio Padrone. Soles are developed in partnership with Vibram Italy or France-based Lactae Hevea. Leathers are sourced from tanneries specializing in vegetable dyeing in the Tuscan region of Italy, and suedes are sourced from England's most prestigious dress shoe suppliers. All shoes are handsewn in southern China, where Tull has assembled and trained a small team of makers known for their strength and dexterity in the declining art of handmade shoes.
Handmade in Italy using Italian vegetable leathers.
Handmade locally in NY using materials from the U.S., Japan and Italy.
How do I care for my FEIT products?
Vegetable tanned leather shoes and accessories should only be treated with natural products to preserve the natural aging process and breathability of the leather.
Leather: Use the large horsehair brush to remove surface dirt from shoes or accessories. Dip the small horsehair dauber brush in FEIT x Skidmore’s Leather Cream and massage into the leather using circular motions. Wipe with the FEIT polishing cloth to remove excess cream. After cleaning, insert FEIT cedar shoe trees to help maintain shoe shape while drying.
We do not recommend using the Leather Cream on white leather as the beeswax content may cause discoloration.
Suede: Use the small brush to remove surface dust and dirt, then use the suede eraser to spot clean and remove marks. Finish by brushing the suede again to revitalize and restore the texture.
What size should I wear? Should I size up or down?
FEIT shoes generally fit true to size. If you are in between sizes we suggest sizing up. Some FEIT shoes come with a 2 piece removable insole - one natural cork, one buffalo leather. The cork insole can be placed under the existing buffalo leather insole if shoes are a bit large. You can click the 'size chart' button on product pages for exact insole measurements. Please note leather will soften with wear.
Do you offer wide sizing?
Not currently. Some of our styles are made off a wider last. If you are interested in a wider fitting shoe we suggest the Stitchdown and Hiker styles.
