As "Shoes explained part II", an explanation on how to recognize quality in shoes would be nice. Mathieu

This is what a hand-welted shoe looks like before the shank spring, cork and sole are atached. A machine welted shoe would look somewhat different because the feather would be glued on instead of skived. By Laszlo Vass:
Andrew, do you have a picture of a shoe cut perpendicularly to the feather? I'd like to see exactly how the feather is created out of the insole.

Great post Andrew. l now know the difference b/w a welted shoe and a reverse welted shoe. Santoni has alot of reverse welted shoes in their top range don't they?

a. harris:just a quick complement on your excellent "shoe review". Concise, informative and very well written. Bravo! I, myself, have written 8 books so I know from whence I speak. Not so easy to produce a piece on what could have been a bit of a dry topic, yet you have managed to bring this subject to life. thank you, dpw
