The code was working on sale items last night... but no longer is. The details do state that it's on regularly priced items. Must have been a glitch last night as it worked on both my sales purchases. Anyone have a new code that works on sale items?

Who can tell me if they think these are Goodyear welted?

The description says "Genuine leather welt" but if you look at the bottom of the shoe the stitching stops whereas on the top it goes around 360 degrees.

Thoughts?

The stitching on the bottom is for attaching the sole to the upper, you're not going to see welt threads on the bottom of any shoe

Sorry, but that statement is false. It's visible on many Allen Emonds, Alden, etc.

I am by no means an expert, but I don't think welt stitching needs to be necessarily visible on the sole for it to be considered Goodyear welt construction.

Based on the price of those shoes alone, $120, I wouldn't say that they are Goodyear welted.

It's not necessary, but sometimes a clue. When you see the stitching stop like it does in the picture it's often a way for lesser shoe makers to fool people into thinking it's a proper stitch. Often the stitch like this isn't even't connected to anthing, it's all aesthetic.

Well I'm no expert either, but it's typical to have 2 separate threads. Upper sewed to welt, then sole sewed to welt. Check out one of the many shoe construction videos (Allen Edmunds has a few on youtube) to see how this is done.

A 360 degree welt'd shoe isn't going to have threads showing out of its 2" heel, anyway, that'd be silly. Heels are cemented/nailed to the sole after it's attached.

This is neither here nor there though, as Johdus says, don't buy shoes from LEC =]

Bought a pair of LEC canvas sneakers last year when they were $10 or something. Most uncomfortable pos I've ever had the displeasure of wearing. Long live PF Flyers.
