What is Goodyear welted?

If you’re new to the world of quality footwear, Goodyear Welt Construction is one of the first major upgrades separating heritage shoes from disposable footwear. Though expensive, time-consuming, and difficult to master, Goodyear Welt Construction creates a tightly-crafted shoe that is water-resistant and wearable for years to come. Here, the shoe gets its strength, durability, and repair qualities by stitching the upper leather, lining leather, and welt. The manufacturing process is extremely time-consuming and requires highly skilled craftsmanship. Invented hundreds of years ago, it is still considered the best method of shoe construction today.
