Outlier x FEIT Supermarines

From two of our favorite purveyors of unrelenting quality and craftsmanship, Outlier x FEIT Supermarines handmade all-weather sneakers are great for boat, beach, commuting or just lazing around—they are ready for it all. Supermarine cotton uppers update a bit of history: developed in World War II to protect downed flyers from North Sea exposure, the dense cotton weave swells with exposure to moisture to block water, and this has been given a modern, non-wax-based DWR (durable water resistance) treatment for added waterproofing. It is a more natural solution that Outlier considers, after extreme real world testing, to be a match for GORE-TEX and other high tech waterproof/breathables. The uppers have only two seams, at the rear and to attach the tongue. Lining is a double layer of soft, breathable French calf leather. The Outlier/FEIT commando sole is layered cork, vegetable tanned leather, and grippy Vibram sheet rubber, sewn together with traditional Goodyear welt construction. Available in Black, Ghost, and Navy, shipping early summer, preordering now at $290.
