online: feit hand sewn high

© feit 

can sneakers be stunning? we thinks so, but feit has done so. cobblers tull and josh price have come up with the beautifully crafted hand sewn high sneaker in plush greige suede. unlike the original vulcanized court sneakers which required the upper to be glued to the sole via harmful chemicals, this sophisticated model is hand-stitched at the back and onto the sole, using a modified goodyear construction. the absence of glue not only makes it unique, but also allows your foot to breathe on hot days and does not retain odour. the hand sewn high is crafted from italian vegetable suede, so no chemicals have been used in the tanning process. the skin remains close to its natural state, retaining its porous, breathable qualities. it's 100% natural to the core from the cotton stitch, the cork insoles to the bamboo shanks and will age richly over time. the hand sewn high is available at the feit store in sydney, but if you reside elsewhere on the planet, you can also order online.
