I've long been searching for some premium sneakers that can be resoled and a couple years ago came across the label Feit, which fit the bill. Founded by Tull Price, who also designs shoes for Rag & Bone, and his brother, Feit makes its sneakers in limited quantities. Each pair is handmade by a single craftsperson in China. As you can see below, they even sign a card with the shoe's unique number in the edition that comes included in the box. Also in box are shoe bags—one for each shoe, thankfully, because having one bag for both shoes is just so useless—a set of leather insoles, a pair of cork footbeds, and a set of cotton laces. The insoles and laces can be added to the shoes to adjust sizing. I recommend going with your normal sneaker size on these. Half sizes should go up and add the aforementioned insoles, footbeds, or both to make the sneakers more snug. In my case, I wear size US 10 in Nike and Adidas sneakers and went with a size 43 in the Feits. The cotton shoelaces are in addition to the vegetable tanned leather shoelaces that come prelaced on the the shoes.
The welt on the sneakers is Goodyear, so you can get them resoled. You can also add a Topy or Vibram rubber halfsole, if you prefer. I'm not a huge fan of the silhouette and look of these, but the quality is undeniable and I like the idea of having a sneaker I can wear often for many years. I'll update this post with more information once I've had a chance to wear them for a month or so. In the meantime, check out my photos of the shoes below.
