The traditional Goodyear Welted construction gives to our boots the strength and durability by carefully stitching the leather upper with the leather welt through the insole rib. The midsole is then stitched to the welt to maximize stability and bonded with the rubber sole to create an excellent traction to the ground.
The Goodyear Welted construction requires highly skilled craftsmanship, and it is considered one of the finest method of shoemaking.
Been wanting a pair of burgundy boots for some time and browsing the web I came across ProjectTWLV (pronounced "twelve"?) which I just received today. Thought I would share some pics and a few details:
These Reflex boots are really cool; the tongue opens well below the instep allowing easy access and it is sewn to the sides of the vamp which keeps it in place. The Goodyear welted rubber sole is very stable as I have been wearing them today in the rain with no slipping.
The padded tongue and top make them really comfortable and they don't dig into your ankles; speed hooks are easy to tie and the laces stay in place even after a long walk.
Make sure you size down a half size (this pair is a 43 and I am usually a 43.5/44)
Paired with jeans you can't go wrong !
