Echoing elements of the first hiking boots invented in the early 20th century, but with superior modern-day natural materials and highly trained craftsmanship, this boot is built to withstand the harshest of winter conditions. Hand sewn details celebrate our makers via a running whipstitch that decorates the raw edges of the collar and tongue, and a triple row of stitching on the L-shaped welt that unifies the upper and the sole.
The hand sewn Goodyear construction produces the most durable and flexible product available: lightweight, functional, and resoleable.
Our wool shearling lining ensures your feet remain warm regardless of the weather conditions faced, and are equally comfortable with or without socks. The Vibram® outsole, seamless one-piece upper, and gusseted tongue make this boot naturally water-resistant. This is a hard-working boot built to withstand the harshest of winter conditions.
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.
All FEIT Hikers are made from start to finish by one master craftsman using a hand sewn Goodyear construction, whereby the one-piece upper of the boot is sewn to a welt, which is then sewn to a leather midsole. The sole is then filled with cork and a bamboo shank stabilizer is added. Finally, a Vibram outsole is cemented to the midsole using a natural, water-based glue.
Goodyear construction ensures all FEIT shoes can be resoled.
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.
