Goodyear welt construction: the better way to build a boot
Goodyear Welt construction is the oldest and most reliable construction method, delivering footwear that's flexible, durable, and easily repairable.
So how does it work? In short, a strip of firm leather (called the welt) is stitched to the leather upper. The welt acts as a sort of "anchor layer" for the stitching that binds the boot together. Goodyear welt construction provides solid footing and flexibility, and allows the outsole to be replaced— effectively lengthening the life of the boot.
