Feit has unveiled their latest footwear release, a Hiker boot in Horween leather on an X Ray sole.
The transparent sole brings 3 major internal components into plain view – the bamboo shank, cork foot bed and thread weave. The natural bamboo shank used in the mid foot provides strength and support where it is most needed. The cork foot bed is an all-natural, lightweight material used for absorption and flexibility. The thread weave can be seen travelling in and out, around the printer of the sole. Each stitch is hand sewn, joining the upper the sole. This technique provides maximum strength, flexibility and breathability. It is an age-old footwear construction greatly lost in footwear today, replaced, unfortunately, by cheaper cemented constructions.
Gorgeous. Available for pre-order through Feit.
