At Cheaney, we specialise in the manufacture of Goodyear welted shoes and boots. The Goodyear Welted construction gets its strength, durability and repair qualities by stitching the upper leather, lining leather, and welt (a specially prepared piece of leather) to the ribbing that has already been bonded to the insole. The welt is then stitched to the leather or rubber sole. It is this final stitch, holding the sole in place, which we can cut through enabling complete removal of the sole without causing damaging the upper which enables us to offer a full refurbishment service. Goodyear welted shoes and boots provide superior cushioning, comfort, durability and longevity. Explore all our Goodyear welted shoes and welted boots to experience the quality for yourself, including our men's Oxfords and men's Brogues.
