Goodyear Welted Masters

Shoes made to last over time Goodyear welted shoes are made by following a rigorously handcrafted technique that requires 216 steps by taking about eight weeks to make a single pair. The upper and the insole are sewn together by our craftsmen thanks to a leather strip, called ”welt”, to which the outsole is subsequently sewn. The space between the insole and the sole would be filled with cork. This process requires only natural materials, such as cork, leather and waxed cotton threads to create an extremely durable, soft and water-repellent shoe which is easy to be resoled without damaging the upper.
