one quick wy to tell if your shoes are..

hand welt or machine welt
All 12 shoes shown are G&G.
those marked m = machine welt, yellow circled
those marked H = hand welt, red circled.
Those that are machine welt have a "mouth"/ V-shaped opening in the vamp to welt junction when viewing across. Those hand-welt are not, the vamp seems running direct into the welt- which is quite a desirable features IMO. I have counter-checked with Japanese shoes & other shoes I have & verified it is true.
There ARE OTHER elements to distinguish hand vs machine shoes &  is not the scope of this thread.
A shoemaker told me the reason why but I still need some time to figure it out.
Others input are welcomed why.

There are exceptions as it is not a law. A more accurate guess should also take into account of other factors . Without any Better way, It is a way to assist to tell. I have shown as least 20 pairs that follow this method - maybe U can suggest a more reliable one ?

I find few questions from the pics
First of all, a trial shoe is not welted at all! So the cut up shoe was not welted.Second, I don't think Church make hand welted shoes no matter how old they are.

U are right for the trial shoes, not sure for Church's

Let me tell you a more easy and reliable way to spot the hand welted shoes.
Do you want to learn?

geeboo 2017-12-6 11:15 AM

yes pls

想知係唔係hand welted 不是看出面,而是看𥚃面。
Machine welted因為條welted係黐上去的,不會拉扯到insole的纖維,所以是平滑的。hand welted就唔同喇,因為會拉緊纖維所以會見到好似波浪型的痕。
