Most of the designs are constructed with Goodyear welted sole. Goodyear construction is time consuming, labor-intensive and requires a significant amount of hand work, but it is considered the best method of shoe construction. A layer of cork bed is inserted between the leather insole and the leather sole which makes the shoe sole conform to your feet and become softer and softer with each step you take.This unique sole constrtion will make the sole water resistance and very durable.
