Specializing in "Goodyear Welted"
Goodyear stitching is the best method for making a good shoe. It is the oldest, most developed and most lasting method.
When we talk about sewing GOODYEAR, or DOUBLE STITCHED, we refer to an invented in England in 1869 by English craftsman Charles Goodyear process, which consists mainly of a double indoor-outdoor connecting the skin with floor sewn, this type of stitching means a guarantee of craftsmanship as it can not be done without human intervention. The GOODYEAR construction gives the shoe a unique comfort and adaptability to foot, as well as thermal insulation both cold and moisture, and heat.
Someone said in the film To Kill a Mockingbird that 'you never really know a man until you stand in his shoes and walk around in them.' After more than a hundred years, we have the experience to know the details of your steps, your footprints, your passions, and your desires. Thus a Yanko for each occasion.
