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.

Love them! Add these Turkish slippers to your summer wardrobe. The perfect everyday slides. Simplicity! No breaking in required. I was lucky enough to check them out in person when they recently traveled through Boston. Sabahs come in two styles: Sabah (leather loafer) or Baba (slip-on). I tried both. Babas in the cognac color easily compliment any style. A neutral tone that will only get better with time. Favorites for years to come. Ones that have earned a space in my suitcase for this summer’s travels.
Sabahs are handmade shoes crafted by a family team in southeast Turkey based on a traditional shoemaking method. A perfect partnership created by Mickey Ashmore who lives in NYC. They come in a variety of beautiful colors. Order online or follow their insta feed for pop up shops near you. Sabah
Something for those hot summer days that is just perfect for your summer wardrobe. Check out Loup Charmant from NYC. A company I stumbled across recently and immediately fell for their lovely flowy style. Airy feminine dresses to be worn anytime of day. Summertime dressing to me should not be fussy or require accessories besides your sunnies and hat. I also love how a pair of Nike slides, tennies, or stappy sandals can easily transform these beauties from sporty to sweet. Effortless dressing from Loup Charmant seems perfect to me. There is beautiful selection so good luck picking your favorite. Happy Summer ladies!
Now these boots I can get behind. I am finally coming around to the white boot trend. Mainly because I haven’t really spotted a pair that have caught my eye. This has changed with my discovery of Everlane’s soft leather low boot called The Day Boot. They are made in Italy and have an approachable heel height for everyday travels. Loving the hint of edge with the center seam detail. The burgundy is also a beautiful color if you are still undecided on the white. To me the white seems a bit softer than other white boots I have come across. These would be an easy and lovely addition to your wardrobe. The Day Boot is classic, stylish, versatile, and reasonable at $225.00. Score!
Oh Yeah, it is a fall Sunday and it’s a sweats kinda of day. isostilo is thinking about this new release from Teva. A cozy pull on and maybe just the hippest slipper like shoe armed with a sole for your next trip anywhere. A women’s and men’s mocs/ slipper called the Ember Moc. They come in a selection of fun fall colors that will having you contemplating a purchase for yourself or better yet to gift. A sleeping bag for your foot, say no more.
The Embers are one of those items that you may not feel you need till you own them. Stepping out on a crisp morning or running out to grab something from your car, then you have that moment of I LOVE THESE. They seem like a perfect lounge shoe and I think I want them or are they too campy? But they are certainly an alternative to other slippers out there. Add these to isostilo’s previous post, Weekend Ready. Teva
