Are these shoes Goodyear Welted?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I honestly have no idea how to tell.

 

Specifically:

 

http://www.neimanmarcus.com/p/Salvatore-Ferragamo-Casey-Brogue-Oxford/prod128340056/?eVar4=You%20May%20Also%20Like%20RR

 

I love these a lot, and I recently got a $500 gift card to neiman marcus, so I'd like to hop on these. I like Ferragamo a lot since I'm a big Audrey Hepburn fan and she sported a pair, but whatevs. Sooo, are they? How can you tell? And if they're not, can they still be repaired? These are likely to be my first quality pair of shoes that I intend to live with, rather than replace after a year or two.

They are shocking cheap looking corrected grain jobs. Why not use you card towards buying a pair of real leather shoes like Bontonis? Santonis. Neiman Marcus has lotsa good brands.

This was so helpful.. it really highlights what a good year welt is.. I would say the primary difference between the good year welt method and all the other methods of making shoes is the outsole is sewn directly to the welt that is beneath the insole of the shoe..so that's awesome..
