Hiking boots transformed into wearable masterpieces.

Showcasing the very best of the modern handmade movement, the FEIT for BDDW // BDDW for FEIT collection stuns with its creativity and craftsmanship. Tull Price of FEIT and Tyler Hays of BDDW are two leading forces of the handcrafting revolution. Based in New York, their companies operate in different areas of the movement. If Price crafts footwear that marries traditional techniques and modern design, Hays uses his artistic skills to create products with a heirloom quality for his small American furniture company. Together, they recently made some magic.

This ultra-limited edition collection features only 60 pairs of hiking boots, each with their own unique design. Works of art, they look almost too beautiful to actually take on a hiking route, on rough terrain. Although their exquisite craftsmanship ensures they’d handle it. To create these masterpieces, the two pioneers collaborated closely. Tyler Hays painted, dyed, or embossed the leather uppers by hand in his own Philadelphia studio, before sending the pieces of leather to FEIT in New York City. Here, they went through some hand lasting and hand sewing before transforming into hiking boots under the guidance of Tull Price. Photographer Ben Pogue beautifully captured behind-the-scenes moments that show the complex process of bringing the boots to life.

Many designs have nature-themed designs, while others boast striking patterns. No two are the same. Individually numbered, each pair comes in a custom BDDW wooden box that features a gorgeously minimalist design. A bespoke catalog that details the entire process is also included. A series of custom prints that display the hand-painted uppers were also added to this collection. Each numbered and one-of-a-kind pair of boots has a price tag of $2500. You can see the entire collection and order a pair here. Photographs© Ben Pogue.
