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.
Is this even possible? http://www.styleforum.net/t/417427/modified-handwelted-shell-cordovan-trickers-by-brian-the-bootmaker Convert a goodyear welted shoe to a hand-welt? Maybe use a new insole, carve out a feather and resew it to a new welt? Resew the new welt to the holes already present in the uppers from the goodyear? Does this even make sense to do?
How do you deconstruct a Goodyear welted shoe, then rebuild it as a handwelt???
Fantastic price
please re-read my post. I see that. I detailed the errors. For example, top right says, "norwegian welted", but "norwegian/ norvegese" HAS NO WELT. No such thing.Top right and bottom left are Bentivegna/ goyser... but there is some variation in the insole stitching. Cannot tell from the pic if one has a handcarved feather and the other is glued (like in goodyear) or what exactly the difference is.Same with top left and bottom right. Both are similar and both resemble...
the labeling of the different types of construction here is dubious at best. They label the bottom right construction "bentivegna" and that is 100% incorrect. Bentivegna has welt outside the uppers. Either top right or bottom left shows that. Can't even clearly see what exactly the differnce is between those two, as they are drawings, rather than photos.Either top left or bottom right is Norvegese... no welt. On top left you can clearly see the side stitch goes into a...
I hate the fact the heel piece is so narrow. These don't fill the heel properly and cause the sides of the shoes to crease oddly.
stunning. thanks for sharing.
Thanks for posting, my friend. Be aware, these are neither norvegese nor bentivegna (goyser). They are either Goodyear stitched, or possible blake. More likely blake. The "welt" you see there is ornamental.
