Our Welts

Allen Edmonds is built on a strong foundation of American Craftsmanship. Every shoe we build is crafted by a team that is committed to the endless pursuit of making beautiful shoes designed with the best methods, materials and an unyielding focus on lasting comfort.

The 360° Goodyear Welt

We handcraft our shoes on the 360 Goodyear welt - the most labor-intensive, time consuming method of constructing a welt - creating the most durable, comfortable and long lasting shoes. A strip of leather is hand sewn around the shoe to connect the upper to the sole, surrounding layers of innovative materials to create an incomparable wearing experience.
