The Anatomy

The Genuine Leather
Upper
Full Grain leather that makes up the upper half of the shoe is intended for the durability in industrial environment. (Genuine leather has been known that can last for 10 – 20 years, or even more)
The OutsoleMade of Nitrile Rubber. Oil Resistant. (HRO) heat Resistant of 300c. The pattered outsole that touches the
ground provides greater traction on a variety of surfaces.
The InsoleCushioned inner insole that molded your feet that offers comfort.
The WeltA trip of leather / rubber that runs along the perimeter of the outsole attaching the upper leather together with outsole; enhancing durability.
The Toe CapA steel toe cap with EN12567 standard certified is built to withstand an impact of 200 joules and a compression of 15,000 newton, ensuring safety at work.
The Midsole PlateA protective midsole plate constructed in between the insole and outsole that resistant to penetration minimum force 1100N.

THE GOODYEAR WELT TECHNOLOGY

Named after its inventor Mr Charles Goodyear Junior in 1869, the Goodyear welt machine used for process in shoe making is often cited as hallmark of well-made shoes. The construction technique was patented in 1891; it is usually applied to traditional footwear ensuring a truly ageless quality. This technology is widely employed by shoemakers around the globe nowadays to extend the legacy in the shoe making history.

A Goodyear welt is a strip of leather or rubber that runs around the edge of the upper shoes, and is used to hold the components parts of the shoe together. The Goodyear Welt Construction involves running a welt in a lockstitch through the leather upper, insole with a special waxed yarn. This lockstitch reinforcement makes the shoe incredibly resilient and will withstand many days of hard use. As the welt forms an intermediary layer between the outsole and insole, the worn soles can be easily removed and replaced.

THE GOODYEAR WELT CONSTRUCTION PROCESS AT GUZZI

The Goodyear Welt process at Guzzi is a machine based process, an alternative to the traditional hand welted method. The upper leather of the shoe is shaped over shoe last, and fastened on by sewing a rib to the shoe. The vertical ribs is hence created in order for the Welt Machine to run around the insole. The actual welting begins at this point when a special waxed yarn is sewn through the welt, the upper and the insole. The welt stitching holds the upper shoes and the insole firmly together. The welt forms a cavity which is then filled with a cork material. The final part is to cement the attached welted upper part of the shoe to the outsole with high strength adhesive. Cementing elaborates Goodyear Welted shoes, as his process allows the outsole to be removed individually, replace or resole.

GUZZI 365° LOCKSTITCH SERIES

In our 365 degree lockstitch, GoodYear Welt Construction technique is applied to this series of safety shoes. The Stitches is not only run around the entire perimeter of the shoes, but it went through the outsole which further enhance attachment of the entire shoes as a whole. The welt is attached to the outsole through a separate stitch. It is a labor intensive process. The double stitch reinforcement allows the safety shoe to be durable, feel sure on your feet.

THE BENEFIT OF HAVING A PAIR OF POLICE® AND GUZZI® WORK BOOT

SolidityGoodyear stitching ensures perfect adherence of the insole, sole, welt and upper leather, giving the shoe a top robustness.
DurabilityThe precise sewing method makes Goodyear welted shoes solid, to ensure that the shoes processed according to the Goodyear’s technique will last a long time, beyond the normal wear of the outsole.
ConvenienceThe midsole that fills the space between the insole and outsole provides a comfortable support for the foot, making these shoes beautiful and also comfortable.
Beyond the soleMost of the shoes on the market today, are of disposable quality. When the outsole is worn (if the upper resists), the shoes have to be thrown away because replacing the sole would mean to destroy the shoe. In a Goodyear welted
shoe, outsole can be replaced without any damage to the rest
of the structure.
DesignThe particular technique of stitching in the Goodyear Welt Construction technique makes these quality shoes perfectly recognizable.
