Benefits of Goodyear Welt
Goodyear welt is a shoe construction during which the upper and sole of the shoe are stitched together for greater durability moderately than glued. The resulting seam is visible and runs across the outdoor of the shoe, where the upper and outsole meet.
About Dr. Martens
Dr. Martens is the stuff of legends. It all began near Munich, Germany in 1945 when Dr. Klaus Maertens injured his foot in a skiing twist of fate within the Bavarian Alps. To make walking easier all through the healing process, he designed a shoe with an air-cushioned sole. The usage of old rubber tires, he constructed soles that had air trapped within closed compartments. He showed his prototype to his engineer/inventor friend, Dr. Herbert Funck, and together they determined to develop and produce the shoes. Not only did the shoe solve the doctor’s immediate problem, however it also began to sell well in Germany.
By 1959 the two determined that they needed an organization to provide and distribute the shoes, then known as Dr. Maertens, in other parts of the world. In the beginning, many manufacturers rejected the idea that of an air cushioned sole as a short-lived gimmick. Then again, the R. Griggs Group, positioned within the village of Wollaston in England, determined to move at the side of the idea by creating the first work boot with the revolutionary sole. At the first of April 1960, the first cherry red eight-eyelet work boot used to be produced and named 1460 (1/4/60). To sell the brand name better in England, the name used to be anglicized to Dr. Martens. The range used to be branded AirWair and the remaining is history.
