Feit Runner Sneaker
FEIT's Runner returns to and evolves the seamless one-piece, handcrafted leather upper of the original "running spikes". Built from vegetable-tanned semi-cordovan leather, the tongue is unified with the upper, so that lacing the shoe creates a folded "paper bag" effect at the collar. The natural materials ensure that the shoe is breathable and does not retain odor, and that the leather will mold to the wearer's foot over time.
FEIT footwear is mainly built using vegetable-tanned leather. Vegetable-tanned leather breathes as in nature. It is non-irritant, soft to touch, ages richly over time, and biodegrades. The leather remains neutral regardless of the temperature, and does not retain sweat or odor, allowing FEIT shoes to be worn barefoot and get better with age.
All FEIT shoes are made from start to finish by one master craftsman. The one-piece upper is sewn by hand directly to the midsole. A cork footbed and a bamboo shank stabilizer is added, then the leather outsole is cemented to the midsole using a natural, water-based glue. We refer to this process as a modified hand-sewn Goodyear construction.
Goodyear construction ensures all FEIT shoes can be resoled.
