For you shoe lovers out there, you may already be familiar with the overachieving minimalists at FEIT. If the name is new to you, be assured that you won’t forget them. Self-described as a ‘neolouxury footwear and accessories brand,’ Feit crafts shoes by hand in New York using the best materials available all through a no-nonsense minimal lens.
Their latest release is the Feit Wool Double Stitchdown, a modern take on the desert boot. As per usual Feit style, the shoe is constructed like a wholecut dress shoe in the sense that the upper is made up of a single piece of veg-tanned leather with the only seam located at the heel. The upper is also double stitched to an advanced Goodyear welt with a Vibram Morflex outsole. This version sports 5 eyelets with either square leather laces or flat cotton laces.
The kicker is the toasty wool lining that they’ve put inside the shoe. They always recommend wearing their shoes without socks, so the wool lining will likely have you feeling like you’re wearing house slippers. The shoes are available in cuoio and black.
