How good or bad is this shoe construction?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Ok, so I had an old pair of shoes with a glued leather sole (no chance of resole), so I figured I'd deconstruct one and see what you guys thought

Let me know how good or crappy you think it is, and take a guess at the brand.

A glued shoe can CAN be resoled.
The difference between goodyear and glued sole (for most people with access to only average skilled cobblers) is not as great as people think it is.

Poor quality leather insole (grainy) and sole (splitting).
Maybe even poor quality grain corrected leather (can't see it good enough to be sure).
Rusted nails (can effect construction integrity).
Cardboard under heels (never good).
It very very crappy.

No interest in the brand.

I dont know if it is junk, but from goodyear construction and glued sole, there is many difference. I do not know which brand is, but the lining is not even leather, I never buy a shoe like that.

Just though I would join the gang of people who quote the massive OP and then add very little in the way of comments.
