How should a goodyear-welted shoe fit?Updated 8 months ago

A Goodyear-welted shoe should fit comfortably with: 

  • Toe Room: Enough space for toes without touching the front. 
  • Length: A thumb's width between the longest toe and shoe tip. 
  • Width: Snug fit at the widest part of the foot. 
  • Heel: Snug but not slipping; slight movement is normal. 
  • Arch Support: Adequate support without strain. 
  • nstep: Comfortable fit without tightness. 
  • Flex Point: Aligns with the ball of the foot. 
  • Comfort: In general Goodyear welted shoes need a break in process to get as comfortable as they really are.
