Named after Mr Charles Goodyear Jr, who patented the construction technique in 1871, the Goodyear Welt is the trademark of the finest quality Northampton-made footwear.

The welt, a ribbon of leather that runs around the edge of the upper, joins the insole to the upper on every pair of Tricker’s shoes and boots. Constructing a Goodyear welt involves running a lockstitch through the upper, insole and welt, while an entirely separate stitch is used to attach the outsole. The cavity between the welt and insole is then filled with a layer of cork that moulds to the wearer’s foot, providing insulation and comfort.

Whilst labour-intensive, this double-stitch reinforcement makes the shoe incredibly resilient and acts as a waterproof barrier. Plus, as the welt forms an intermediary layer and our welted shoes are sewn together, when your Tricker’s get tired our skilled craftspeople can unstitch and repair them, meaning your favourite brogues can live on for years to come.
