    Hi All, can anyone tell from these pictures (http://imgur.com/a/CEozs) if this Sutor Mantellassi shoe is Goodyear welted? Many thanks to any shoe construction experts/cobblers who can shed light on this. I can also take a picture of the box if anyone knows SM shoes particularly well.

    I cannot tell a GYW from other types of welt, despite reading past threads. I've gathered from those threads that SM does more Norgevese welting than GYW. Can anyone help clarify what I have and say a little more about how to distinguish GYW from everything else?
