Goodyear Welted Construction

British Goodyear welted construction is amongst the best quality in the world enabling clients to experience the most comfortable shoes without concern over their longevity. (We have provided more information regarding the specifics of the Goodyear welt and their benefits in our blog " What is a Goodyear Welt?")
One of the most stable and traditional forms of shoe making in Northampton, this technique enables Percy Stride footwear to become an investment for our clients. A welt of this calibre produces the most durable footwear, water resistance footwear and most importantly extends the life of the shoes, by enabling them to be re-soled and re-built in the years to come. When it comes to men's smart shoes, you need them to keep looking smart and making a lasting impression.
