If you like NO.6, Ancient Greek Sandals, or ATP (All Tomorrow’s Parties) then you just may like FEIT. Henry Cuir also comes to mind. FEIT is a NYC based company designing handcrafted leather shoes for women and men that appear to only get better with wear.
Yes, it is fall but this sandal immediately captured my attention. A sandal that doesn’t read trendy or ugly anything. It is unisex in appearance with an under the radar presence. A beautiful, soft, natural, caramel toned leather sandal with hand stitching, and a solid sole. I would happily slide my foot into for the trying. Without seeing them in person, I would say they are up for the task of walking a city. A neutral tone for any situation or style. Even the packaging is thoughtful. Not to mention there is no glaring logo stamped or printed on the beautiful leather. For fall, I have my eye on the edgy metal clog below. I’m digging its everyday appeal but my wallet is saying something else.
I love that all FEIT’s footwear are made by humans from all natural products and treatments. The focus is on quality and preserving the craft. The company is fully transparent. You can read more on their website about the production process. FYI these handcrafted sandals and boots come with a pricey price tag. So you must love and value their story. I could see myself wearing both the sandal and clog non-stop and getting my cost per wear to zero. There is something special about a shoe that becomes totally worn in from the places you have traveled. FEIT does have a loyal following.

Jewelry maker turned tapestry artist is weaving the most stunning works of art. Her pieces are bright, bold, and one of a kind. Each piece is more beautiful than the next which seems impossible when you experience your first piece of Tammy Kanat’s work. I discovered Tammy Kanat, like many other fab finds, on Instagram. I instantly fell in love with this Australian fibre artist’s work. She is the creator of all things lovely. I absolutely would love to hang a piece of Tammy’s tapestry but till then I will keep admiring from Insta. Tammy Kanat . I also appreciate her laid back vibe in the 1st image.
Love this summer travel hat from Tracy Watts. A foldable hat that you can tuck into its sweet travel bag. Besides that fact, you can wear it with everything and you can pack it in your suitcase! On a long haul flight, the last thing you want to do is guard your straw hat from getting crushed. The Dune Asymmetrical Fedora comes in a natural color with white, melon, or blue stitching. They are handmade. The raw edging is perfection!
