Watch out Dieg0:
HW is not GYW.
Unfortunately, Handmade Shoes means nothing nowadays for most brands (specially GYW brands).
Weston uses in some models original GYW or " a la Weston" (differs from EG/GG/Carmina....)
Yes, Vass is the only one you mention here that hand stiches the outsole.
EB is not partially HW. It is just HW.
Vass is just HW, hand lasted and hand stiched outsole.
SC is just HW (not partially), hand lasted and machine stiched outsole
There are differences between HW and GYW for several resoles.
But yes, quality is good in all those brands.
Hope to clarify possible confusion.
Hey there, I certainly cannot clarify this, but does Vass really hand stitch the outsoles?
Not to slam Vass, TBH, but I've seen some pretty crap outsole stitching on some of my Vass shoes and the SPI is deplorable as well.
But overall, they still make Ok shoes.
