More important than your rifle. Overstatement? Not really. Think about how long you'd last in the woods with cold, wet, blistered feet. Or how miserable you'd be trying to stay on your toes without dependable traction, a supportive fit or shock-absorbing cushion underfoot. Sounds horrible, right? Well, good news. With waterproof, insulated Wolverine Novack Hunting Boots, that nightmare scenario has zero chance of becoming reality.
Goodyear welt construction: a 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, flexibility, and allows the outsole to be replaced, effectively lengthening the life of the boot.
