Poster missed this photo...I am not a fan of the "Norvegese with Goodyear Welt" construction. It is an oxymoron. Norvegese has NO WELT by definition. If you add a welt, then it is no longer norvegese. This is Goodyear Welted... FAUX Norvegese.On a side note, I can't help but being saddened by that glued on piece of fabric that passes as a "quality construction". Somehow it just doesn't seem right for shoes north of $1k.
