Ramón Cuberta doesn´t come from John Lobb. He trained, for a short time, with a shoemaker from John Lobb who lives in Barcelona.

Sorry if this has been covered (and I'm on my iPhone), but my haiku had me thinking today. Is there any practical use to Norwegian welting?

Norwegian sewn without midsole/welt is harder to service/resole as upper are thinner and won't be able to sustain as many times of outsole stitching/restitching compare to a welt/midsole.

 

Norwegian sewn with an welt or midsole are both more serviceable as outsole are sewn to the welt/midsole.  At the same time, shoes will look slimmer with an turn-out welt vs an midsole.

Thanks for your reply. I guess I meant more is there any utility to having a Norwegian welt? Is it more storm/water proof? Is it purely cosmetic?

It should be as waterproof as other stitch down constructions like Veldtscheon.

 

The spinning stitching, if any, is more cosmetic but helps water proofing/tightening the inseaming.

One more. Notice no welt. I was given the option. I believe, on balance, I chose unwisely, although the difference is, thus far, only academic.

Mostly aesthetic, IMO. On this type of construction, the welt adds very little in terms of longevity or functionality.

How many resoling do you figure that the upper can sustain?  Without reinforcement of an welt, outsole is sewn directly onto the upper for the said pair, and resole will have to go through the upper...

The welt doesn't change any of that.
