Goodyear Welt is a method used in all of our footwear. Since the early years of this industry, the demand for a highly resistant and long-lasting boot required inventing manufacturing processes that responded to these market needs. This particular one is named after its inventor, Charles Goodyear, Jr., who in 1869, at the height of the industrial revolution, invented a process that replaced the traditional, fully hand sewn method.
The process creates an item with greater durability and that is easy to repair (and may potentially be repaired indefinitely). The increased comfort and flexibility, improved breathability and temperature range give this method a great edge, with the potential fallout of being slower and costlier.
