In a year that saw the launch of two new models, Goodyears welts and Sunwelt, the pair that have seen the biggest leaps in price and performance have finally found their way onto the shelves of some retailers.
Goodyear welting and Sun welts were launched in August 2015 and both pairs feature a full-grain leather upper, while the new models are now available in either a full grain or a satin finish.
A full grain leather upper is a premium leather that has been treated with a synthetic coating that has a higher grain and more durable than a traditional finish.
This gives the shoe a more refined and soft feel to the leather and provides it with the properties of a high-end shoe.
Sunwels are the next generation of the Goodyear brand and come in a variety of finishes and colours.
While the price for a Sunwel has risen significantly since the launch, a price drop for a Goodyear one has not.
In its current form, the Sunwelf is a full suede shoe that has the same overall construction as the original Goodyear model but is also made with synthetic uppers that are softer and longer lasting than the original.
As for the price of a Sun welter, the Goodyears version has a price tag of £5.99 while the Sun welters price has risen to £8.99.
The price of both the Goodseason welts will increase in the coming months and the new versions will be available in select retailers in March.
