As a maker of lifestyle driven footwear, Jump recognizes that you simply can’t wear sneakers every single day of your life and so comes our offering of some amazingly crafted boots using the Goodyear Welt construction as an extension to our sneaker collection.
This process begins by lasting the upper of the boot and fastening it by sewing the welt to the inner and upper sole. A thread is then used to hold the material firmly together. The welt forms a cavity which is then filled with a cork material. The final part is the sole which is then attached to the welt with a high power adhesive. The very nature of the construction means that Goodyear welted boots take much longer to manufacture than cheaper alternatives. We managed to find a hidden gem of a factory that could produce these constructions for us.
These are available at Jump SoHo and Saks Fifth Avenue.
