The art of Goodyear Welt manufacturing

There are three basic methods of shoe construction: cementing, blake welting, and goodyear welting.  We use both, Blake and Original Goodyear production methods. Each of them has its advantages, and defines how the sole is attached to the upper. 

For 300 years Goodyear Welting process has been associated with excellence and superior workmanship. More than 60 craftsmen are involved in the process of manufacturing one of our Goodyear shoes, and they use between 25 and 50 different elements and pieces. All this involves a process with more than 120 handcrafted phases, from beginning to end.

Goodyear welting is the oldest, most labor intensive, and most durable of the three methods of construction.
