These Hiking Boots Were Handmade By A Single Expert Craftsman

When it comes to urbanized hiking boots, a great-looking silhouette is essential; but that’s not the only thing that a wearer looks for when picking up his next pair. It has to exude an aura of taste and style while still remaining undeniably durable — something that Feit has boldly achieved with the Metal Unlined Suede Hiker.

The Metal Unlined Suede Hiker is a testament to the brand’s artful approach to footwear. Each pair is masterfully handcrafted by a single artisanal shoemaker and features a handful of alpine-approved construction elements, including a durable roughout suede upper, a Vibram Gumlite outsole, and a hand-sewn Goodyear welt that’s been reinforced by a water-based glue. A thin layer of natural wax has been added to each, helping to resist water and abrasion, while a Bamboo shank and elemental brass at the boot’s toe serve to gift wearers a pair of timeless hikers that remain decidedly original. If you’re willing to wait two weeks for a pair of your own, head to Feit’s website, where 40 examples have been made available for $950 each.
