We use two methods of shoe construction: cemented and sewn.
In cemented construction, the soles are glued directly to the insole. This method is the most widely used as it makes for a more flexible and lighter shoe, suitable for most people.
Sewn down construction is when a narrow strip of leather, called a welt, is sewn to the insole and the sole is then stitched to this welt. The welt is sewn by hand and is a very time consuming operation, making these shoes more expensive. This method makes a more rigid sole, which is very strong and prolongs the life of the shoes. Welting is a dying art, mainly because of the cost involved, but we offer this construction for heavy-duty footwear and men's dress shoes.
Internal elevations are made of Multicork (a blend of cork granules and rubber)
INTERNAL / EXTERNAL
are split inside and outside
of the shoe.
External elevations are made
of EVA, and are blended
into the sole.
Flares are used to help correct for heel inversion and eversion.
