This process of making shoes is referred to as Goodyear welt construction, as the machinery used for the process was invented in 1869 by Charles Goodyear, Jr. the son of Charles Goodyear. But I'm sure I'm wrong about this also.
I can tell you won't give me any credit about anything and you always have to be right, so I'm going to leave this one alone.
I don't have to be right... I'm just going on what AE says. Could you be right about the Kenwood? Sure, and I wouldn't be surprised. If you are right I will gladly give you credit, and I would be extremely confused about AE's marketing strategy and customer service department (not about their service as much as about how much their service and marketing departments actually know about their own products).
Maybe you are right and I am wrong and that wouldn't bother me in the least. But someone earlier had a question, and I answered it based on what Allen Edmonds says about the product. Until someone tears one of the shoes down and corrects the error or AE states otherwise, I'm going to have to go with that rather than what you are saying.
