Stay the fuck in when it snows

Feit shoes are distinctive. The brand’s policy of one-piece uppers results in a collection of uncannily smooth looking footwear. They’re like newborns. As though they’ve just slithered into existence, unblemished. They’re like Bowie in The Man Who Fell To Earth when he’s all bald with weird eyes. But more shoe-like.

For the ultimate expression of this persuasive uniformity look no further than Feit’s ‘Hand Sewn Slipper’.

In natural leather, there’s certainly something of the Hender Schemes about these. But while Hender Scheme has been co-opted by the Hypebeasts, Feit remains comparatively incognito. For gentlemen of a non-Supreme x Off-White x Rick Owens x Vetements persuasion (basically bros that want to define a more surreptitious style) these could be a move.

I’m feeling the loafer style more and more right now – in total opposition to the relentless bumming the weather is currently offering. Sure, they’re not suitable for London living as I write, you’d get slush on your socks. But once temperatures start behaving I’m getting my slip-on on.

With their widthy sole these feel modern, and will easily slide into an existing wardrobe of Engineered Garments, orSlow, Kaptial and the other usual subjects. I’m sure they would wear well and many will enjoy the evolution of the (incoming overused menswear term) patina. Personally, I think nothing beats box fresh. I’d apply some leather protector and tread carefully. And just stay the fuck in when it snows.
