The Hand Sewn Mule is a reinterpretation of our classic Hand Sewn Slipper. This open-back style is built on a slim sole, elevated with natural materials and built with a high level of craft. Features our signature one-piece upper, leather outsole wrap, and handsewn modified Goodyear construction. Our shoes have historically been built using a vegetable-tanned leather.

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.
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.
