What is a "Goodyear Welt" and why does Koolaburra use it on their Luxe Collection of boots?
Koolaburra's Luxe Collection of handmade boots are made in Spain using the finest leathers and techniques, including "Goodyear welt." What is that and why do you care? Simply put, this is the process of applying the sold to the shoe by hand, used by craftsmen on handmade shoes and boots in England, Italy, and Spain. Koolaburra's Luxe Collection of boots handmade in Spain are produced with the exclusive Goodyear welt construction process used only in the most expensive and best boots; this system allows air interchange within the footwear offering a remarkable strength and a matchless durability. This construction allows multiple sole replacements, extending the life of the footwear. Shoes with other types of construction may also have welts for finished appearance, but they generally serve little or no structural purpose. Goodyear welts are characteristic of high-end handmade British shoes.
The bottom line is this: Koolaburra's handmade boots from Spain are the highest quality handmade boots available. At least as important is the fact that they are down-right gorgeous! Enjoy!Shop Koolaburra boots!
