In Depth: Lugged Runner
All-new for Fall Winter ‘19, the Lugged Runner is a first in many respects. This modern take on a trail runner is the only sneaker in production to incorporate a hand-sewn Goodyear welt, as well as the first style to feature FEIT’s fully customized lugged rubber outsole, designed in collaboration with Vibram.
The Lugged Runner begins where last season’s Trail Runner left off. This style is built for active, all-terrain wear, bringing all the rugged functionality of a traditional hiking boot to the lightweight, streamlined silhouette of a runner. A thick suede* rand wraps around the base of the leather upper, taking inspiration from technical approach and climbing shoes while adding protection and durability to high-wear points, and a sturdy bamboo shank and partially exposed cork midsole limit the overall weight of the shoe without sacrificing strength or stability.
