Waxy winter boots for the Norwegian winter. Goiser for sure.

What was the rationale behind the decision to use the Goiser welt? Was it for design or for function?

Goiser isn't a decoration. Goiserbis the real stuff. Strong and heavy looking. Some people just love its beauty - just like me. I made plenty for myself.

Thanks!

Nice, Marcell!
I love the combination of eyelets and hooks for the lacing.

What's a Gozier welt and how does it differentiate from a regular welt?


If you mean regular welt = Goodyear construction (there are more, like pegged, german etc), goodyear is a little bit more dressy. Goiser cannot really be considered dressy..
OK some people here wear them like that, but.. goiser is developed for hiking boots.

Beautiful boots.

For those of us interested in construction, but are too young to know anything else besides Goodyear and Blake, is the Goiser welt just another name for the Norwegian welt? Also, I've read that the Norwegian welt is the same thing as the split reverse welt and storm welt. Storm welts I'm familiar with, but all this other stuff about Goiser, Norwegian, and split reverse I'm not. Are they just different names for the same thing?

Well, obviously there are different versions of goiser, and the construction, you have mentioned. The technique, what we (Austrian, German and Hungarian and I believe plenty more countries) call goiser came from goisernbad, where a local shoemaker didn't find his hiking boots strong enough. Maybe the same happened with some Norwegian in the storm?
Kidding. I believe storm welt is pretty much the same, Norwegian traditionally doesn't have a welt.

Ah, so goiser is a completely different kind of construction? I'd be interested in learning about it sometime, if you happen to have links.

Also, just to clarify - so are you saying storm welts and Norwegian construction are different things? I ask only because storm welts, I believe, do have welts (which is the thing on the outside, attaching the sole to the upper, to keep out water).
