OUTLIER got together with Australian born footwear line, FEIT to create this new Collection of sneakers. Though OUTLIER is dedicated to cycling apparel, they are considered one of the experts when it comes to quality material choices. Taking that genius and mixing it with FEIT’s knowledge of the sneaker community, they have hopefully created a winner. Check out the info on the drop, scheduled to hit shelves mid-February.
Outlier and Feit both share the same dedication to using the absolute best quality materials around and it comes through in these sneakers. 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. So supple that it makes you want to not wear socks.
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.
