We use both, Blake Stitch and Original Goodyear production methods. Each of them has its advantages and defines how the sole is attached to the upper. Goodyear welting is the oldest, most labour intensive, and most durable of the the methods of construction.
All our Shoes by default are made using the GOODYEAR WELT CONSTRUCTION, which is renowned for its superior quality & longevity.
Some of our Belgian & Slippers & Casuals are made using the BLAKE CONSTRUCTION. This method is more suited for flexible shoes like our Slippers & Casuals & is also long lasting.
For more than 300 years, the Goodyear Welting process has been associated with excellence and superior workmanship. More than 60 craftsmen are involved in the process of manufacturing one of our Goodyear shoes, and they use between 25 and 50 different elements and pieces. All this involves a process with more than 120 handcrafted phases, from beginning to end.
The shoes from our Belgian + Slipper Collection is put together with cemented leather soles.
