Description

ALL SALES FINAL.

Hailing from France’s Occintinia region and widely worn across Spain since the 13th century, FEIT's Espadrille Hand Sewn Ballet evolves the classic style with a natural jute fiber wrap around our traditional cork sole. Our interpretation uses a one-piece semi cordovan leather upper stitched and cemented to the sole that will actively mold to your foot with wear.

Limited edition of 40 styles cut, available directly with FEIT. 

Construction

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.

Material

Cordovan leather, historically made from the buttocks section of a horse skin, has been used only for luxury dress shoes. FEIT shoes 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.

SIZING

We recommend sizing down as this style runs long and wide. This pair of FEIT shoes includes a set of buffalo leather insoles to assist with in-between sizing. The additional leather insoles can be used alone and inserted for extra padding. If you are between sizes, you can either size up and include insoles, or size down and use no additional insoles.

Please see our size chart for measurements.
