Hi, My name is Max and I've been lurking around for a few months. I'm just starting to build a decent wardrobe and I'm looking to buy a decent quality shoe. I've read alot about construction methods and I've decided to buy a goodyear shoe. The trouble is that I live in Brazil and I'm a noobie, so I can't really tell if the shoes that are being sold on the stores really are goodyear welted. I asked the clerk who works at the brazilian Brooks Brothers of sorts. He told me that the shoe's soles are stiched AND glued, so I was left wandering if goodyear shoes soles are glued to the insoles at all?? All responses are deeply apreciated, and excuse my English.
