Crafting Process

The LABUTA footwear is still developed trough an handcrafted way from the most patented processes and production methods, selects raw materials in a carefull and demanding way, opting for natural and high quality products.

Goodyear Welt

Invented by Charles Goodyear in 1869 during the industrial revolution, as manufacturing process that would replace the traditional process of hand sewing, giving the footwear the robustness, and high quality durability. It is considered one of the finest methods of shoe construction.

The process itself , makes it possible to switch at any moment the sole of any shoe or boot , without prejudicing in any way the quality or aspect of it, which makes it easier and possible repair of being carried out for several times.

The Goodyear Welt manufacturing process, gives longevity, quality and comfort in the use of our footwear, providing a perfect foot breathing.

Each of our pairs of our shoes or boots, takes roughly 4 hours 15 minutes being produced.

Blake System

In this construction system there is a direct cut attachment to the sole by sewing process using specific equipment. The most commonly used equipment for the execution of this operation is from Blake brand, a shoe stitching machine was invented by the American Lyman Blake in 1856 and perfected by 1864 leading to the designation of the type of construction.

In Blake construction, fixing the cut to the sole by sewing is performed in the forefoot and shank areas.

The quality and flexibility of this type of construction process, are points in favor for a type of lighter footwear, offering a sense of comfort and freshness in warmer climates, keeping unchanged the demanding Labuta quality standards.
