the design process is pretty cookie cutter — if the cookie cutter started at BDDW’s studio in philadelphia, received treatments of paint and dye and embossment and was then sent back to FEIT, in NY, for hand lasting and hand sewing. it’s more of an epic journey actually. after being handled just right by both master craftsmen, each finished shoe is stowed appropriately in a just-as-thought-out wooden box made by BDDW.
