Goodyear welted leather sole
Goodyear welted is the method of shoe construction. The stitched construction gives durability, comfort and repair qualities, by stitching the upper leather, lining leather and welt to the ribbing, which is then stitched to a leather sole.
Welted Rubber soles
Charles Brooks also stocks shoes with rubber soles, which are more hard wearing and give a better grip on uneven or slippery surfaces.
Cemented sole construction generally has a more lightweight appearance and features a sole which is bonded to the upper shoe using adhesives, rather than stitching.
