Outlier x FEIT Supermarine Sneakers – A Detailed Look

After announcing this interesting collaboration a while ago, we can give you a detailed look at the two colorways of the Outlier x FEIT Supermarine sneaker today.

“The Outlier Feit Supermarines. A handmade sneaker, built with the best materials possible. Highly water resistant, extremely breathable and all around a pleasure to wear.

Like all of Feit’s shoes the Supermarines are handmade using traditional shoemaking techniques that today are generally only used by high end dress shoe companies like John Lobb, Alden and Tricker’s.

The upper is made from two materials and uses only two seams, one to attach the tongue and one to close up the rear. The outer material is Supermarine Cotton, a highly water resistant and extremely breathable fabric made solely of the longest staple Egyptian cotton. The inner is a double layer of French calf leather, an extremely soft and breathable material.

The Feit/Outlier commando sole is a similar combination. A full length French vegetable leather outsole provides an excellent combination of flexibility and stiffness, while a two piece Vibram sheet rubber layer ensures solid grip and traction. A cork midsole adds in natural breathability and shock absorption. Everything is sewn together using the traditional handmade Goodyear welt construction. Waxed cotton laces, a 3M reflective heel cap, a discreet lace tuck and a buffalo leather insole with natural latex arch support complete the package.”

The sneaker comes in two colorways and is now available for pre-order here.

Take a detailed look at the sneakers and the packaging after the jump.
