The minimalistic kicks pictured above are the Hand Sewn Lows (available in indigo, natural, and black) from Australian footwear label Feit and they cost 542 USD a pair because, as the name indicates, they are hand sewn. Yes, these Goodyear constructed beauties will set you back a pretty penny. Yes, there will be an unpleasant break-in process. No, your friends will not realize that you dropped half a rack on them (unless you just tell them). But such is the essence of the Flex. It surrounds you, penetrates you. It's what binds the galaxy together. A patronizing old asshole once told me that you can actually measure your potential to Flex by counting the number of midi-chlorians in your blood and, shit, I'm talking about the Force again, aren't I? Why does that always happen? This post was supposed to be about expensive handmade sneakers, not an excuse to look at Wookieepedia. I know what you're thinking: Chewbacca probably doesn't know the first thing about stitching a Goodyear welt, because they don't wear shoes on the planet Kashyyyk. And luckily for us, most human cobblers don't pull people's arms out of their sockets when they miss a stitch. Wookiees are known to do that. Please let me know if any of these nerd jokes are landing -RB
