What is the welt?Updated 8 months ago

In a Goodyear-welted shoe, the welt is a strip of leather, rubber, or other material that is stitched to both the upper part of the shoe and the insole.

In our case you will always find a leather welt. 

This creates a visible seam that runs around the perimeter of the outsole. The welt serves as a foundation for attaching the outsole to the shoe. 

Goodyear welt construction is known for its durability and the ease with which the outsole can be replaced, extending the lifespan of the shoe.
