WHAT IS A GOODYEAR WELT, AND WHAT DOES THE TERM GOODYEAR WELTED MEAN - A welt is a strip of leather, rubber, or plastic that is stitched to the upper and insole of a shoe, as an attach-point for the sole. The space enclosed by the welt is then filled with cork or some other filler material (usually either porous or perforated, for breathability), and the outsole is both cemented and stitched to the welt. This process of making shoes is referred to as Goodyear welt construction, as the machinery used for the process was invented in 1869 by Charles Goodyear, Jr. the son of Charles Goodyear.[1] Shoes with other types of construction may also have welts for finished appearance, but they generally serve little or no structural purpose. The Goodyear welt is highly regarded for a number of reasons including being relatively waterproof by not allowing water to get into the insole due to the welt-sole construction, the relative ease in which the sole can be replaced, and the fact that the boot can last up to 20 years or longer depending on the treatment and condition of the upper.
