Are Mezlan shoes Goodyear welted?

The Goodyear method, invented by Charles Goodyear Jr, is an infamous method of constructing shoes. One of the most apparent features of Goodyear welted shoes is that the sole part of shoes can be replaced without damaging the upper stitched part or the rest of the shoe.

When we talk about Mezlan shoes, they are certainly hand-stitched but are not Goodyear welted. They instead use the Blake method to construct their shoes.

The Blake method includes attaching the upper leather part of the shoe to the sole. This is unlike the Goodyear welted shoes where the upper part and the sole are detached. This way, shoes made with the Blake method look more sleek and high fashion. They help in improving the image and design of “dress shoes for men”. 

The Blake method also gives off the typical sleek-looking Italian style while Goodyear welted shoes are mostly on the bulkier side. In Mezlan shoes constructed through the Blake method, the sole is thinner and smoothly finished unlike shoes built using Goodyear welted shoes.

The Blake method also allows for more flexibility to the sole. They make them lighter and more comfortable as compared to Goodyear welts.

In the Blake method, special machines are used to stitch the upper part of the shoe to a finer leather sole which means that the sole is not attached by hand. Machine stitch is neat and special machines are used for this purpose.

Is Mezlan a good shoe brand?

Is Mezlan the right brand for you? This question can have different answers depending on the consumer’s individual preferences.

In general, though, Mezlan shoes are worth the money and are definitely a good brand to buy. Size issues are surely present but buying a size down can easily help while purchasing online. 

Mezlan shoes are truly premium, and carry off a unique Italian style. They are also sleek, cleanly stitched, and not bulky at all.

They make the perfect dress shoes for men with rich taste.
