There are two layers of rubber sole, a mid sole stitched to the welt and an outsole glued to the mid sole.This is the normal procedure for welted shoes, used also for Vibram Gumlite, Crepe soles, etc.
The cream is from saphir medaille d'or cordovan range from google translator: first link: "Persistent treatment with sapphire Cordovan Care and a hard smooth rubbing tool (similar to a shoe-Bone) produces the popular high-gloss" "... only sapphire Cordovan cream, black has been used and no water-gloss polishing technique was applied" Second link (where the wax tin is visibible): "...today discovered a method by which Cordovan within a short time can bring shoeshine...

Yes, It's used also on elbow patchs,It's exactly the point used by tailors on the lapels, lining etc. could be spaced in various ways and could have structural or decorative purpose.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vmYJhzXkpe0
