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.

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.
HA. dont get th the Santoni Marketing strategy. Once Upon A Time, the "Andrea Santoni Santoni Fatte A Manos" were the top line. They were all handmade Norv and Bentivegna models. The "Andrea Santoni" was handwritten with a pen. The "When Santoni saw that the "Fatte Models" were gaining popularity... especially on forums, they made more and more "Fatte A Mano" shoes, but most were NOT actually "made by hand". The top models were still the Norv and Bent ones... but they...
