For more than 300 years Goodyear Welting has been associated with excellence and superior workmanship. It takes 100 time-honoured steps and days of edge trimming, welt sewing, sole stitching and burnishing before a shoe can receive our Goodyear Welt stamp of approval.
The 'welt' refers to a tough strip of leather that is stitched to the upper and insole of the shoe. During the process the leather is stitched and shaped to create the shoe’s upper, then skived, edge stained, seared and folded in the traditional way. A stitched welt is unique to shoes that are Goodyear Welted. Using two separate threads, the soles are lock-stitched to the welts for maximum strength and durability.
The finishing touches are completed by hand to ensure the stitching, detailing and characteristics of each shoe are highlighted in the burnishing, dressing and polishing processes.
