Frequently Asked Questions
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 are made 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, Whipstitch Wool Hiker, Bamboo Hiker, and Bamboo Military Hiker 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 following the original purchase date. FEIT reserves the right to determine if the damage is due to construction or normal wear. If a defect occurs as a result of normal use within one calendar year from the purchase date, FEIT will repair the issue free of charge. This does not include normal wear and tear on the sole.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or visit one of our retail locations for more information.

Will I be charged tax on my order?

Do you have sales?
Our items are hand made and produced in very limited quantities, therefore, sales are not common. Please sign up for our newsletter at the bottom right hand corner of our homepage to be notified of any promotions we may have. All discounted items are final sale.
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. All FEIT shoes come with two removable insoles - one natural cork, and one buffalo leather. The cork insole can be placed under the buffalo leather insole if shoes feel a bit large. You can remove the soles at your leisure for a size that is best fit. 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 our Boot styles.
How are your shoes made?
FEIT products are hand made by the world’s finest contemporary craftsmen using biological materials from the highest quality suppliers. No harmful chemicals are used in the FEIT production process and all footwear is hand lasted, hand sewn, and produced in limited volumes to ensure minimal environmental impact and maximum quality. FEIT uses an advanced hand sewn goodyear construction whereby the upper of the shoe is stretched over a last and sewn to a leather strip known as a welt. The sole is sewn (not glued) to the welt/upper to unify the shoe. Each shoe is left on the last for up to ten days, where light stream is let into the room to help tighten and form the leather. Most FEIT shoes are constructed from one piece of leather. The resulting absence of seams ensures comfort and allows the shoe to naturally shape to the foot.
What is vegetable leather? What is vegetable tanned leather?
Vegetable tanned leather is tanned using tannins and other ingredients found in vegetable matter such as tree bark, wood, leaves, fruit, and roots. FEIT leather breathes as it would in nature. It is non-irritant, soft to the touch, ages richly over time and is biodegradable. The leather remains neutral during hot and cold days. It will never smell.
Where do you source your leather?
All leathers are sourced from the highest quality English and Italian tanneries.
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.
Our accessories are hand made in Italy using Italian vegetable leathers.
Our hats are made by a Japanese master milliner who studied haute mode hat making in Paris under the legendary Jean Barthet in the 1960s. They have been created by a hand knitted machine in a small atelier that focuses only on the production of knitted hats.
Our limited edition sweatshirts are spun on 1920s American loopwheel sewing machines in Japan.
How do I care for leather?
Vegetable tanned leather shoes should be left untreated. The leather will develop a patina and age beautifully over time. Clean with a horsehair brush or soft rag. If desired, use a natural oil based treatment or conditioner.
How do I care for suede?
Vegetable Suede and lighter leather can be protected with natural protectant or waterproofing agent. Soft wire brush and eraser recommended for light stains and revitalizing suede. Only use suede cleaner for heavy stains.
