GOODYEAR LEATHER WELT

Goodyear® welt construction stitches the upper fabric, lining, and sole together, creating a single unit for added durability and flex. Goodyear® leather welt footwear delivers superior lateral support and is easily resoled, extending the life of the shoe or boot.

A strip of leather between a shoe’s upper and sole, which allows the sole to be replaced indefinitely

Recognized worldwide as a superior method of footwear construction for durability.

The oldest, most labor intensive, and most durable of the three methods of construction. It can be done by machine or by hand and involves multiple steps.

The first part of the process is preparing the insole for stitching. This is done by creating a perpendicular “rib” that runs across the insole. Some shoemakers create the rib by cutting and sculpting the insole, while others will do so by using a supplementary material like linen tape.

The second step is to last the shoe. This is done by stretching the outsole over the last and attaching it, along with the insole, to the last.

Part three is the actual welting. At this point shoe-specific thread is sewn through the welt, the upper, and the insole rib. Through a separate stitch, the welt is attached to the outsole. For both of these stitching points, a lockstitch is used – meaning the chain won’t unravel if it breaks down at any particular point in the shoe.
