    Blake rapid uses the mid-sole as a welt to sitich the outsole to the shoe. The midsole is leather and it is a stitched connection.

    This is contrasted against goodyear welt's plastic/canvas gemming glued onto a mostly leatherboard (composite of leather offcuts and adhesive) insole. The outsole in goodyear welt is stitched to the glued plastic/canvas gemming.
