Goodyear Welted Shoes
The production time of one pair of shoes, taking into account that all steps are carried out by hand, takes up to 1 1/2 working days. The actual production relies on the Goodyear method. It is not for nothing that lovers of welted shoes prefer this method. It is a great attribute of quality shoe production.
In this type of production, the sole is connected with the upper part of the shoes via the Goodyear Welted method. The sole of a welted shoe consists of several layers. These are filled with a special cork blend, which is not only responsible for excellent insulation, but also ensures an optimal wearing comfort.
In a complicated staining process, the handcrafted individual items are then provided with the characteristic of the models patina. For this purpose, various waxes, such as bee or Canauba wax are applied to the natural leather. You will not find a single shoe that is like another. This is something special and the wonderful thing about a handmade product.
Especially the Tassel loafers, boots & derbys enjoy great popularity everywhere. They do not only exude a certain charm, but rather form a solid basis for your personal "Wardrobe Key Items".
