Feit Hand Sewn Wrap Boot is a Unique Take on the Jodhpur
The Jodhpur is a lesser seen boot — at least here in the States — that tends to be on the sleeker side of things, with a simple closure by way of a single buckled strap. You may have seen a pair if you hang with the sartorially adventurous or at renaissance fairs, but rarely are they spotted in between.
Being that Jodhpurs tend to be single-cut boots, it made perfect sense that, sooner or later, Feit would take a stab at the style, since single-cut footwear is a self-imposed constraint made by the highly principled brand. Their take, however, goes full throttle on the renaissance, with laced eyelets shifted to the rear in place of the standard buckle on the side. Yes, that means your laces on threaded at your achilles and no, I haven’t yet figured out how one ties them with grace. The low-pile veg-dyed English suede is hand sewn to a leather sole with an L-shaped welt and it’s finished with a traditional stacked leather heel.
Hopefully a nearby elf can help you out mid-battle when your laces go undone.
$740 at Feit and you can wear them to the fair.
