The goodyear Welted ghillie brogue is the top of the range. This has a full leather upper, but the sole is full leather goodyear welted. This is a highly skilled craft which dates back hundreds of years. Today, this is still considered one of the best ways to construct a shoe.
Also, this construction offers better strength and durability and can be fully repaired after many years of wear leaving the upper intact.
This shoe also comes with the steel quarter tip.
