FEIT Chukka X-Ray

It has been really quite around FEIT for a long time and therefore it makes us even happier seeing the Australian brand present one strong release after the other in recent months. The X-Ray sole was introduced by them on their last boot and now it also appears on their all new Horween leather Chukka Boot.

“The Moc Chukka X Ray is a hand sewn moccasin, built on a transparent sole, which highlights the custom Feit Hand Sewn Good Year construction, as well as the shoe’s internal components. The transparent 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 perimeter 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.”

You can order your boots already here, with a release set for mid April.

Many more images of both colorways of the boot follow after the jump.
