Feit’s Latest Shoes Features Hand-Painted Details and Yak Skin
It’s always a pleasure to write about the newest releases from Feit. Their handmade shoes are so damn full of details and overall aesthetic excellence, there’s always tons to talk about.
Their new Raw White Cordovan Suede shoes are hand-cut and sewn and even feature a Goodyear welted sole so you can have them resoled as many times as you need. But the real star of the show here are the materials—the horsehide cordovan upper has been turned inside-out so you’re left with a suede shoe. And in an almost Margiela move, the suede is then painted white. Not wanting you to miss out on their handiwork, the foxing of the shoe has been made from a partially-translucent yak tendon (normally discarded in the leather production process), so you can admire just how well-made your new shoes really are.
These beauties are available for $650 at Feit.
