The welt is the strip of the fabric that is attached to the insole and upper, and to which the outsole is sawn to.

I follow Antonio on Instagram where he posted several times details of the hidden sole stitches in the waist of his top of range line, which are only possible by hand.

Although his test shoes are good-year welted, I am not sure if he attach the soles by hand or machine, although is possible he could attach the front by machine and the waist by hand....

Dude I freaking give up. These are the best pictures I can take of what you wish to see.
My stupid cellphone cam just keeps going in and out of focus. Maybe it's because of the lighting, it's 7am here and not much light yet.
Hope this helps.

No problem. Glad the photos helped.
I'm a cheap bastard, scrimped and got a lousy phone so I could spend more money on shoes. Ha.

He refused to send me any pictures after my most recent request for them.

Instead titillating me by discussing details of my shoes, thus hinting at what stage he was at in making them. And conveniently ignoring my request for a picture.

Cheeky bastard.

That's a slim waist yes, but he will trim down the edge of the sole a lot more in forepart so the waist looks extra slim on that pic.
