Just come from this thread: http://www.styleforum.net/t/191166/shoe-construction-behind-the-veil

 

It's fascinating and definitely worth a read - the author is knowledgeable and providing some fantastic answers to questions

 

Having read it I'm curious - does anybody know if GG shoes are gemmed?

post #4265 of 12527
Yes, the RTW line is gemmed.

As are all of the RTW shoes made in Northampton.

You will probably never find a Goodyear welted shoe that is not gemmed. It can be done without gemming but the time/labor involved is so great that one might as well hand welt the shoe if one is going to take the trouble.

Ah, thanks. The author didn't mention any brands so I was simply curious about GG as I'm particularly fond of them. I've got shoes that I've had for years that I assume are gemmed and had no problems with; and from what I read in the essay gemming seems more of an efficiency upgrade than a quality downgrade.
