Goodyear Welting

Goodyear welting is a process patented by Mr Goodyear. He realised that the upper could only be stitched onto a sole a very few times before it was ruined. He invented a process where the upper was stitched to a sacrificial strip of leather which in turn was stitched to the sole. A Goodyear welted shoe therefore has several lives rather than just one life as you can re-sole the shoe. The welt itself can also be renewed carefully. Thus when you buy a Goodyear welted shoe, not only are you buying a quality item, you are buying a pair of shoes that, if looked after properly, could last a lifetime
