1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Any consensus BR welt is better than Goodyear?

    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.
