Choosing Between Craftsmanship: Hand-Welted vs. Goodyear Welted Shoe

DIRECT ANSWER: NOT NECESSARILY. Read on for a more detailed response. While it’s indisputable that hand-welted shoes excel in various aspects compared to fused/cemented and Blake-stitched shoes, Goodyear-welted shoes are often considered to offer similar quality with a quicker production process using machines rather than artisans. Opting for hand-welted shoes can be likened to choosing a mechanical watch over a battery-powered one. Both serve the purpose of telling time, and the digital one might do so at a lower cost. However, there’s a certain intangible satisfaction we humans derive from being discerning about what we wear and appreciating the craftsmanship that goes into it. Presently, hand-welted shoes available in the market unquestionably exhibit higher quality than Goodyear-welted shoes. The artisans, committed to age-old shoemaking techniques, clearly value their craft, evident in the superior output they produce. Perhaps, we could attribute this to correlation rather than causation. In other words, our shoes aren’t superior simply because they’re hand-welted; they excel because the craftsmen behind them take immense pride in their work, resisting modern changes for years to preserve and elevate their craft.
