In 1872 Charles Goodyear revolutionized the footwear sector with the invention of a sewing machine that facilitated its construction by accelerating the sewing of the shovel and the turning of the shoe.

It was an expensive and handmade manufacturing method, which required the intervention of man, synonymous with a quality shoe. In fact, only the best manufacturers use this technique.


Goodyear stitching or construction brings genuine characteristics to the shoes such as durability, flexibility, comfort and insulation. In addition, it allows for the repair and replacement of soles, a service offered by all major brands, contributing decisively to their longevity.

El Goodyear Welted is handmade and consists of a double stitching: a Goodyear seam joining the blade to the sole; and other welts joining the welt to the sole. Between the outer sole and the sole, there is a space that is filled with the shank and with agglomerated cork, which provides comfort and adaptability to the foot, as well as thermal insulation against cold, humidity and heat.
