All parts of the shoe are held together by stitching allows for a "suspension bridge effect" which improves flexibility and comfort
The thicker insole adds more stability and support to the feet resulting in a more comfortable experience. It has the added advantage of shortening the break-in period of the shoe significantly
Wherein a standard Goodyear factory construction the welt sits below the insole stitched to a cotton rib, in the 360 the welt is stitched to the side wall of the insole giving the shoe a sharper feather edge and better flexibility.
After lasting, the welt is Goodyear stitched 360 degrees to the channel and sits flatter on the insole. It is also easier to resole since it keeps the upper intact in the seat area.
In 360° Channeling welted Goodyear, we use the same full substance (5mm to 6mm) leather bends as bespoke shoe making and create a channel by slitting open the edge of the insole.
The thicker insole in more comfortable and the break-in period of the shoe is shorter.
