Sometimes great ideas are already underfoot. Over two years ago we teamed up with Feit, and quickly realized that we could instantly upgrade any of our shoes simply by taking the insoles out of the Supermarines we created and putting them in whatever shoe we wanted. Clearly these insoles stood in a class of their own so we decided they deserved to step up as a solo act.
The magic is in the materials, especially the beautiful buffalo leather that Feit loves to use. The key is that it's both rather thick and quite dry for a leather, meaning it absorbs moisture well and molds to the shape of your foot, perfect for an insole.
Of course it's never as simple as it sounds, insoles come in two distinct shapes - flat and wedged, so we made both. The Flat ones are super straight forward, nothing but 100% pure buffalo leather, slide them into a shoe and it's all good. For the 8mm ones we needed a wedge material good enough to stand next to the buffalo leather. We added 8mm of cork in the rear for a firm and breathable shock absorption, and a thin layer of natural latex throughout for simple, clean cushioning. We then perforated the entire forefoot to add extra breathability for the ultimate in comfort.
