Footwear that rises to the ankle or higher; can be casual or dressy, practical or fashionable. Boots that are designed for protection from the elements may be made of a single, closely-stitched piece of leather, rubber, or other material to prevent the entry of water, mud or dirt. Other types of boots are sturdy in nature, intended for protection in wilderness or industrial settings. Fashionable boots for men and women may have all the variations seen in other shoe styles, including high heels, platforms, and lacings.
About Goodyear Welt:
Goodyear welt is a shoe construction technique used in the manufacturing of footwear with stitched soles. This construction method uses a narrow strip of leather called welt which is first sewn to the upper and inner sole of the shoe, then stitched to the outsole creating a stronger bond between the parts. Goodyear welt construction allows multiple sole replacements as well as better air flow through the shoe.
