I really, truly miss my NYC family but it’s great to see various brands continue to grow each time I’m back in town. While I was in the Outlier offices last week, I shot some photos of their new The Outlier Feit Supermarines 2012 Edition. These sneakers may not be for everyone, or everyone’s budget but as history proves, they’ll sell out faster than your RSS reader will pick up on this post. They presale now for $290. Check out a gallery and a press release below.

The Outlier Feit Supermarines 2012 Edition. A handmade sneaker built using our highly water resistant Supermarine Cotton. Using the best materials possible, we’ve made some subtle yet substantial changes based on the original model to make an even better shoe.
The removable insole is made with high quality cork and buffalo leather. A thin layer of natural latex has been added for comfort during the “break-in” period and the forefoot has been perforated for ventilation. The sole has been reengineered for enhanced wet weather traction with Vibram rubber sheets that have been bonded to the full-length, vegetable tanned leather outsole.
Supermarine Cotton covers the upper for incredible water resistance and breathability. Hand-sewn using Goodyear welt construction and lined with French calf leather for its luxurious feel. The result is a more balanced shoe – visually and physically.
We expect to ship them early summer, but they are available for presale now for $290. If there are any left after they arrive, the regular price will be $333, so grab them while you can. Available in Black, Ghost and Navy. WWW.OUTLIER.CC/
