Cheers Bengal, interesting ^^^^
But I don't hold that against the vintage shoes Isshinryu posts unless he's been misrepresenting them.
As u know, all shoes, including hand welted like Vass, Lattanzi, Lobb Ltd, are glued.
The reinforcements on the inside toe, counter and flanks are glued, the lining is glued and the midsole is glued to the welt and cork rite? The heel lifts are glued in place, and so is the heel piece.
So it's not whether shoes are glued - they all are. - It's about 1 functionality and 2. yr preference about ratio of machine versus hand.
I know u've posted many many times on this DWFII, and I don't want u to go over old ground again. From what u said in past it's debatable that a glued welt won't last as long. Gem-failure, as with stitch-failure, is no more than anecdotal.
and as with glue, so for machines.
Machines are universal in shoe-making. What renowned shoe-maker does't machine close the uppers?
Vass, Lattanzi, Lobb Ltd, Cleverly bespoke, use sewing machines. And there's the machines used in tanning the leather, making the thread, the cork, the pins, the nails and the cobbler's tools.
u say it like it's a bad thing
wait . shoemaker who posts in this thread? ??
