It’s a shoe! Its a sneaker! No, it’s a pair of Hand Sewn Lows from FEIT. Coming in a rich caramel-y tan, this hybrid footwear from FEIT is a court classic on vintage steroids, with an upper made from one piece of veg-tanned calf leather that has been hand sewn onto the rest of the sneaker.
Made in South China by one craftsperson from start to finish, the FEIT Lows are a work of art as much as they are a functional pair of kicks. So functional in fact, that the best is yet to come. Since these sneakers are artisan-made and feature top-shelf materials, they will only look better over time as they collect scuffs, scratches, patina, and all those other markers of a worn-in pair of sneaks.
And while you’re collecting this wonderful wear, your feet can rest assured knowing that the hand-stitched Goodyear construction, bamboo shank stabilizer, and cork footbed will keep you cruising comfortably until those cushiony gum soles are completely worn down. And even then it’s no issue because the outsole and midsole has been bound with a natural water-based glue which means they’re totally re-soleable.
