Inspired by the streamlined functionality of 20th century combat boots, heightened ankle-support, sturdy leather heel-counters, and hammered brass welt-caps at points of high-wear make for the most substantial boot we’ve ever made.
Edition of 30
100% Handmade Hand-stitched Goodyear construction
Durable, flexible, and breathable natural materials
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 are added, before cementing the leather outsole to the midsole using a natural, water-based glue. We refer to this process as a modified handsewn Goodyear construction—this method ensures all FEIT shoes can be resoled.
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.
This shoe runs half a size large. An extra set of cork and buffalo leather insoles is included with each pair to assist with in-between sizing. As a general rule, if you are between sizes we suggest sizing down. The additional leather insoles 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.
