THE BEST SHOE

 

GOODYEAR WELTING

Why goodyear welting?

There are three basic methods for attaching the outer sole to the upper:

  • Goodyear welting
  • Cementing
  • Blake welting

Goodyear welted shoes offer the highest level of comfort because they are moulded to the shape of the foot, adjusting to its contours for a natural and sculpted fit. However, goodyear welting is also the most complex and expensive technique to perform because it calls for the expertise of a seasoned artisan due to its painstaking precision. This technique almost quadruples the shoemaking time. At JMVC, we use goodyear welting for all our shoes except slippers/loafers that need to be cemented to make them as flexible and lightweight as possible, without compromising on style.
