Goodyear Welted sewn leather sole
For this are known master craftsmen from Northampton, England. The sole is sewn on the edge, which means that the shoe offers comfort after only 3-5 wears, durability, increased resistance to wear and water and also allows the skin to return to its original shape. It is a sole recommended for the warm season.

Rubber inserts on leather soles
It offers all the benefits of a leather sole, but adds grip, flexibility and durability, characteristic attributes of a rubber sole. It is the sole recommended for the whole year.
Leather sole closed by cementing
This is a construction obtained by using adhesives instead of assembling the shoe by sewing. This type of sole offers lightness and a thinner appearance of the sole in profile, which the welted construction cannot reproduce. Depending on the materials used, it can be worn either seasonally or throughout the year.
Given the characteristics mentioned above, we should choose our shoes properly, taking into account the season, weather conditions and wearing occasions.
