From the guy that brought you Royal Elastics (yes, really), Feit introduces their latest sneaker with a bit of origami elegance. It’s been a while since their Biotrainer came out, but their recently introduced Runner sneaker riffs on classic sneaker aesthetics, featuring all of Feit’s hyperlux details in a minimal-er design package.
Even more true to their one-piece upper construction than their classic Hand Sewn sneakers, they’ve constructed the tongue on the Runner to be unified with the upper entirely, a design that was first seen on original runner spikes. So, when you lace up these bad boys to run that gnarly 3K charity run (WuTang is for the children), they’ll fold like a paper bag. The paper bag effect is actually Feit’s own wording, but it looks way cooler than your sack lunch. Trust me.
Per usual, they’re built in what Feit calls semi-cordovan, which is a vegetable tanned horsehide. It rests on some kind of EVA midsole which then sits on top of a leather outsole. So, if you decide to give back to your local community by jogging, you can basically do it in shoes that have the same sole as a pair of Alden’s. The only difference is that these aren’t goodyear welted.
Available in black and white for $540 at Feit.
