Civardi Goodyear Welted Shoes & Boots

The Goodyear Welt Collection

For more than 300 years, the Goodyear Welt process has been associated with excellence and superior workmanship. More than 60 craftsmen are involved in the process of manufacturing one pair of our Goodyear Welted shoes or boots, and they use between 25 and 50 different elements and pieces. All this involves a process of more than 120 handcrafted phases, from beginning to end.

We are pleased to offer our collection of Goodyear Welted soles in leather, Dainite rubber and also a special combination of leather and rubber. You can find out more about each sole type below.

Goodyear Welted Shoes

All of our men’s dress shoe models are now produced with a Goodyear Welt sole unit. Within this high-end method of shoe production you still have a considerable choice of soles – full leather, dainite rubber or indeed a combination of leather & rubber.

We have managed to maintain our competitive prices for this labour-intensive production procedure – we hope you will like them!

Leather Goodyear Welt

Goodyear Welted Leather soles came to being when in 1872 Charles Goodyear invented a machine capable of stitching the welt to the insole, thus revolutionizing the quality of footwear worldwide. Due to its longstanding heritage, little needed maintenance, waterproof durability and clean aesthetic, the Goodyear Welting method is highly valued in the high-end shoe market.

Dainite Rubber Goodyear Welt

Dainite rubber soles are the only rubber outsoles that can be considered luxurious and the best option for someone looking for a long-lasting rubber sole with an added measure of durability. As well as being clean, slick, and applicable to anything from an understated Oxford to a more rugged Jodhpur boot – Dainite rubber soles are applied to footwear using a Goodyear welt. With the feet on the ground, there is visually little difference between a leather sole and a Dainite sole.

Combination Goodyear Welt

If you love the aesthetic of leather but value the grip of rubber then our Goodyear Welted combination sole units are the perfect solution.

Maintaining the production values associated with Goodyear Welted soles we can now offer the perfect combination of appearance and functionality.

    Hi!
    I am assuming that you are located in Europe somewhere, or UK, correct? (seems not to be mentioned anywhere on your site).
    What are the approximate duties/taxes for shipping shoes to the U.S.? This would be very helpful to know. I’m sure I am not the only person who would like to know. Does not have to be precise to the penny, just a rough idea.
    Thanks!

      Hello Alan,
      Thank-you for your query.
      Unfortunately duties/taxes tend to be an extremely complex area and it is very difficult to provide this information – however we would tend to see duties to the USA of approximately 5% of the total value of the order.
      Please note that this is indeed a VERY rough estimate.
      You may find the following webpage of some interest – https://www.freightos.com/freight-resources/import-duty-calculator/
      We export from our workshops in Spain.
      I will try to find a comprehensive breakdown of duties etc. but so far I have not been able to find such a thing due to the complexities of the international trading system!
      I hope my reply is at least of some assistance to you.
