GOODYEAR CONSTRUCTION: THE BEST FOR SHOES AND FEET
When taking our shoes out of the packaging, what you hold in your hands is the result of a lengthy production process, with each part handmade. The famous Goodyear welted construction in a nutshell: it gets its strength, durability and quality by stitching the upper leather, lining leather and welt to the ribbing that has already been bonded to the insole. The welt is then stitched to the leather sole. The process requires complete mastery of working techniques and profound knowledge of the materials. Executing the Goodyear process in particular, is an art that requires competence, patience and precision. Invented hundreds of years ago, it is still considered one of the finest methods of shoe construction today, resulting in extremely smart footwear made with technical perfection. Needle, awl, string and pliers; each one of the 270 stitches is calibrated with accuracy. The result? Exquisite, high quality shoes that adapt to your feet perfectly.
