Description

Originally created in the Victorian era, the Chelsea became a staple until World War I. In 1932, the English Chelsea boot was adapted into a sturdier design to be used as a work boot for Australian stockmen. The FEIT Chelsea boot draws on this hard-working heritage, built with the FEIT hand sewn Goodyear construction and a rugged Vibram® Gumlite outsole. The FEIT Chelsea boot has a one-piece upper built from a single piece of leather, handstitched at the heel, and a pull tab is applied by 8 hand stitches.

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 is added, then the leather outsole is cemented to the midsole using a natural, water-based glue. We refer to this process as a modified hand-sewn Goodyear construction.

Goodyear construction ensures all FEIT shoes can be resoled.

Sizing

Each pair of FEIT shoes comes with an extra set cork and buffalo leather insoles to assist with in-between sizing. The additional leather insole 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.
