HiI took advantage of this year's BF discounts to pick up some boots and a pair of 'Spazzacamin.' I love the longwing blucher look combined with the short, rounded lasts Velasca uses. I'll post some pictures a little later.
For now, I'm looking for your thoughts on this much-discussed blake-stitch construction. Below we can see the topside of the stitch on the insole and the backside on the outsole... so far so good (though surely this should have been sunk into a channel on the outsole??).
However, there's also stitching around the outside of the shoe that's not visible on the underside. Is this just an attempt to give the appearance of a blake-rapid or Goodyear construction?
1. Stitching will wear out, not so dangerous though. Agree with you that the way stitching is made is not optimal
2. These are Blake-stiched, welt stitching is fake. Before 2017 Velasca made Blake-Rapid with rubber soles.
