Will go read now and be even more crushed.

The fish part was a joke.

The problem with making those types of posts is that people interpret them wrong; all I was doing was describing the different construction processes and dispelling the myth that Goodyear welting is the superior construction method. I don't think Goodyear is a bad construction method, it has just somehow managed to become a buzzword and erroneously assumed to be the best. I was just trying to show that it's not inherently more secure than the other factory shoemaking methods.

Blake, cemented, goodyear, blake rapid, they each serve a purpose and can be good options. Even bespoke makers will sometimes employ cemented construction when appropriate. Margiela sidezips would look weird with welted construction.

To me, those look like blake-rapid construction. IMO, it is probably the sturdiest of the machine made methods.

I have a couple from last year. They're fine for what they are, but in the majority of colorways the grosgrain tape just doesn't look good.

I was going back and forth on those butteros for a while but decided my feet wouldn't be able to squeeze into them. Great pair of boots though.

FWIW I just came back from the cobbler. He was a bit in awe and suspicious of the boot it having so varying leather types sewn together. I asked him similar questions and he basically said they were pretty good constructed shoes albeit they are probably cemented though he only agreed with me when I brought it up. Said that if there was any welting or stitching that it would have shown all the way through to the outsole. I decided to get a topy and he confirmed it will help the boot hold shape and last quite a while. Seeing how I have other boots rotating them should be fine in terms of wear over time. He offered to waterproof saying it will not darken the leather as he uses a different base in the liquid, which I thought was cool but opted out.

I emailed Damir perhaps I will get a PM back like Bam!

Believe it or not, a couple a MarJell-O's! have managed to escape Regis's tawny grasp, and in two days' time, I will return with the photographic evidence to prove it.
