Factory Production Capacity
1. Factory and Equipment
Our factory located at No. 63, Siyanjing Street, Xinzhuang, Baiyun District, Guangzhou City, Guangdong Province, China. The factory area is 500 square meters.
The machinery and equipment we use in producing our leather shoes are 2 cutting machines, 1 leather sewing machine, 1 hemming machine.
2. Production Process
Our production and processing processes include Gluing, cutting, sole laying, pull-out staple, toe lasting, counter lasting, folding, finishing and waxing.
Here’s how our factory makes leather shoes by hand:
(1). Make a Version
In other to make a pair of shoes, the first step is to design it.
The first step of making a pair of shoes is, of course, to design. Draw the shape of the shoes you want to build on the shoe last. This process needs to be repeated just like painting, to consider the overall proportion of the shoes, to push the arc of each line, and to keep the lines and lines in check with each other, Of course, this is not only a test of esthetic but also an examination of the experience of the production master.
(2). Cutting Leather Material
The design is completed and made into a flat template, and the leather is cut according to the flat model. The cut leather is not only cut according to the shape, but also the fiber direction of the leather in different parts (this is related to the production of subsequent processes, and a certain degree of wearing comfort).
(3). Upper Production and Put-on Last
Here we talk about shoemaking and put-on last.
According to the original design, the uppers were sewed together by a sewing machine. The finished upper is just a “shell” shape. At this time, there is no “shoe shape,” so the next step is the ” put-on last ” process. On the shoe last, the upper is shaped, and the difficulty of put-on last is very high. Handmade shoes are purely pulled by hand and then fixed with nails, and the shoe upper is stretched to the shoe last little by little. Each shoe has to hit one hundred and ten nails (still very laborious).
(4). Combining Sole and Upper
The next step should be the “Goodyear process” that everyone often talks about. The first step is to sew along the strips, in a more general sense, it is to fix a belt strip, upper, and midsole together with a wire. Next, attach the large base to it and the edge to the line together. In this way, the upper, the midsole, the line, and the outsole are all joined together by line. Along the bar, most of these large soles are all wired together, which is different from the essence of most “glued shoes.” It is conceivable that adhesive shoes will inevitably have a practice of ungluing, and it will be almost impossible for them to wear them for a long time. Leather shoes are stitched so that they can be worn for many years.
This is to be corrected. The technique mentioned above of combining the Sole and Upper is not called Goodyear. It should be called the Stitch process. In the early days, when there was no large shoe manufacturing equipment, it was made by shoemakers purely by hand. Later, a gentleman called “Goodyear” invented the machine to make this kind of stitching. The process is therefore known as the “Goodyear Process,” which is the “Stitching Process” of the machine. in simple terms, the “Goodyear Process” is the machine-made version of the “Stitch Process.”
Finally, the outsole and heel edges need to be polished smooth and then dyed and waxed. At the same time, the upper also needs to be waxed by hand. Our factory usually gives 6 to 8 waxes, making the shoe even more shiny and even shiny.
3. Quality Control
All products produced at our factory are quality-tested and meet international quality standards. We have a team of experts that does inspection during the manufacturing process, including semi-finished shoes and finished shoes.

Market Tone and Expertise
- The Five Emerging Trends Affecting China’s Footwear Market
1. Growth of E-commerce Business
From 2015 to 2019, China’s online retail market is expected to grow at a compound annual rate of more than 24% per annum. The popularity of the Internet has contributed to the increase in mobile device Internet purchases and promoted the development of online retail in China, thus also promoting an increase in sales of various consumer goods, including shoes.
In addition, active markets pricing, and customer attraction strategies all drive e-commerce sales in China. As a result, many shoe manufacturers and retailers have entered the e-commerce sector, offering a wide range of brands and designs through the portal, which has resulted in increased online sales of shoes.
2. Increased Demand for Leather Shoes
Suppliers are more focused on the design and style of the leather shoes. Since corporate employees and school students are the main consumers of leather shoes, the demand for leather shoes will grow. In 2018, Fujian Province was the leader in Chinese leather shoe production, producing 38% of Chinese leather shoes, followed by Guangdong and Zhejiang.
3. Increase in Retail Organizations
In 1919, China’s first pair of leather shoes were successfully produced in Guangdong. In the late 1970s, China’s footwear industry rose rapidly due to the presence of cheap labor and the supply of ready-made raw materials. In the 1990s, China’s footwear production exploded, making China a global footwear production center. It can be said that China’s shoe production reached its peak in 2014 with an annual output of 14.3 billion pairs, and the annual output in 2017 will be close to 13 billion pairs, still accounting for 60% of the world’s total output.
4. Technological Innovation
In the future, the innovation of the footwear industry will become the new normal, and the development of high and new technology will replace machines with humans, which will become the fuse for the next type of footwear industry change, and artificial intelligence will be fully upgraded.
5. The Fans get the World
The shoe company that can’t figure out whom it serves for 3 years is the most dangerous.
Whoever can get close to the consumer and truly interact with the consumer will succeed. Besides, consumer loyalty will be redefined. In the era where consumers are the core, fans are operating, and shoe companies that do not gather fans will be difficult to achieve.
Looking ahead, the global footwear industry will inevitably be affected by “Industry 4.0” and “smart factories.” Challenges and opportunities, maybe everywhere.
- Knowledge of Handcrafted Men’s Leather Shoes
Is the second-layer leather of cowhide the real leather?
There is still a big difference between real leather and second-layer leather in terms of material and technology: The first layer of cowhide: commonly known as “original skin” cowhide, is a pure natural leather product, good quality, strong durability, gloss and feel better.
The second-layer leather: It is a leather layer formed by dermal doped scraps after re-lamination processing. The surface is made of chemical material spray coating or covered with PVC and PU film.
In terms of global testing standards, the first layer of leather and the second layer of leather are both genuine leather, and both belong to the category of genuine leather.
But in general, the real leather that everyone needs is the first layer of cowhide.
The second layer of skin is obtained by cutting the skin under the most primitive thick skin of the animal with a skinning machine. The wear resistance and folding strength are not as good as the first layer of leather. The second-layer leather is made into a second-layer leather through a series of processes such as painting or filming. It has poor fastness and abrasion resistance and is the cheapest one of its kind.
Characteristics of second-layer cowhide: the reverse side is the second layer of cowhide leather, and the surface is coated with a layer of PU resin, so it is also called film cowhide, which has poor air permeability; after a long time of use, the leather material will be violent and serious. Rupture, it still maintains the characteristics of cowhide, but the wear resistance and strength are not as good as the first layer of cowhide.
The first layer of cowhide is also obtained by splitting the original thick skin of the animal with a skinning machine, but the first layer of skin is the upper layer of the original thick skin. The first layer of skin is grained cattle, sheep, pigskin, etc., and the skin is natural. Occasionally, there are also knife wounds during processing and areas of the brisket with very low utilization. The imported scalp and the number of cattle is stamped. The whole grain skin distinguishes which animal leather belongs to pore thickness and density. The first layer, which is made up of a dense and thin fiber layer and a slightly loose overlayer that is closely connected to it, has good strength, breathability, elasticity, and process plasticity.
The first and second layers are both genuine leathers, but the feel, performance, and price are quite different. When the weather is cold, the products of non-full-head cowhide will become stiff, brittle, and crack. When the weather is hot, the products of non-full-head cowhide can easily build up the air, causing the cladding to soften and blister, and making them uncomfortable to use, which will also reduce the life of the products.
2. Explanation of the Craft Made of Handcrafted Leather Shoes
You must have heard of Goodyear welted, but do you understand Goodyear’s sewn? These are also some handmade shoemaking techniques, let’s briefly introduce them.
(1). Flat Welted
Flat welted is the most typical method of hand stitch development, and it is also the representative method of British footwear. The midsole is engraved with grooves, and the edges of the shoe are manually stitched. Only the heel without welt is called 270 degrees welted. If the shoe body is sewn in a circle of welt, it is 360 degrees welded.
The midsole and the edge create an empty cavity, filled with the oak-shred end, with a shank on the back of the shoe. Traditional British wood, light and soft, but relatively not durable; some manufacturers use metal, strong durable.
If the outsole is integrated with the front and back sole, the shank can leave it unattached, then attach the outsole, and make a dark groove on the edge of the outsole, stitch along the strip, and the outsole, and finally glue the dark groove.
Advantages of this method:
The shoe body and sole are connected by the welt. When the outsole needs to be replaced, you only need to replace the outsole and stitch the welt to the outsole again. The shoe body will not be damaged during the repair process. If the strip is damaged, you can replace the welt and the outsole, and the repair process will not hurt the shoe body, the shoes are durable.
Disadvantages: Relying on manual work, many processes.
Later, Mr. Goodyear invented the machine that could sew welt. Therefore, the source of Goodyear’s sewing method is the crystallization of the wisdom of folk working people, and Mr. Goodyear invented the Goodyear sewing machine and summed up the application for patent of the shoe technology.
Let’s take a brief look at the famous people:
Charles Goodyear Js is a 19th-century American inventor, known for inventing sulfuric glue, and known as the “father of rubber.” The famous rubber manufacturing Company in the United States today (Goodyear Tire Rubber Company) is named after this great inventor. So that’s why you search for Goodyear, and you come out with Goodyear tires, and that’s because those who invented the technology of Goodyear shoes also invented rubber. However, Goodyear shoes are not necessarily related to rubber tires.
(2). Goodyear Welted
So, Goodyear was born. The process is the same as that of the hand-stitched strip, but the step of hand-stitching is replaced by the machine. As a result, production efficiency has been greatly improved, meeting the needs of manufacturers pursuing commercialization.
However, it needs to be pointed out that it is impossible to finish the groove on the midsole exactly like the hand sewing, and directly sew on the midsole. Instead, it is a routine practice, to stick a loop of long strips, usually made of linen, on the lower part of the midsole, where workers operate the Goodyear machine, which stitches, shoes, and white strips.
With people’s demands on the quality of life, spiritual culture, and the persistence and legacy of rival crafts, there are still many handcrafted shoe workshops. Crafting artworks with the heart of a craftsman makes Goodyear shoemaking technology still shining in the times.
(3). Inner Spur Blake (Mckay)
The inner branch process is also called the Braque process, and there are many tricks.
Compared with Goodyear, the inner branch line is not so durable, and the bottom change is troublesome, but because there is no along the strip, the sole of the inner branch line can be made relatively thin.
(4). Blake Welted
This is the most common Goodyear technique on the market, and most handcrafted shoes use this Blake Welted stitching.
(5). Norwegian Seam
One of the most famous stitching lines in custom shoes is called Norwegian stitching. Top-level of shoes: Glue < Braque < Goodyear < Norwegian stitching.
Norwegian stitched shoes are denser than Goodyear’s shoes, with more layers and more patterns, so the palm is much wider, so it looks smooth and dignified. The sewn lines are thick and mad, showing a confident and heroic, a domineering masculine method.
The Norwegian sewing technique was first invented by the Italians. Because the stitches are connected in a figure of 8, it is also called a figure 8 stitch.
(6). Hand Welted Welt
Hand welted welt is a separate process, which is divided into Goodyear machine welt and purely hand-stitched welt, and juxtaposed with inner stitching and Norwegian stitching on shoes. In terms of cost, the inner seam <Goodyear machine welt < Hand welted welt < Norvegese welt.
It is worth noting that the Goodyear process is not equal to the Hand welted welt. Goodyear leather shoes refer to leather shoes that sew with Goodyear machines and are made by combining hand and machine. As far as the word “handcrafted shoes” is concerned, Goodyear shoes have a very high market share.
The machine Goodyear and the Hand welted welt are the same only in that they both use Welt structure to make leather shoes. Before the Goodyear machine was invented, shoes were made entirely by hand. The invention of the Goodyear machine made this kind of leather shoes reduce manual components and greatly increased the speed of production.
The welt structure shoes manually sewn welt without the Goodyear machine， it cannot be called Goodyear handmade leather shoes and should be called hand welted welt shoes, this is the real pure handmade leather shoes!
The large structure of the Goodyear leather shoes is the same as that of the hand-stitched leather shoes, all of which have a structure of more than seven layers and are independent of each other.
1). Insole: The inner bottom is the part of our foot that comes in direct contact with the bottom.
2). Midsole: The insole is very thin, so a layer of the midsole will be covered under the insole for a secure fit.
3). Outsole: The part of the sole that directly contacts the ground is usually made of thick cowhide. In addition to enhancing wear resistance, it is more important to have a good ventilation function.
4). Welt: A very important structure is a strip of leather less than one centimeter wide and about two or three millimeters thick. By connecting the upper, the insole, and the outsole, it effectively supports the entire shoe structure. After wearing for a long time, the shoes are not easy to deform, but also increase the firmness of the combination of the upper and the sole, and at the same time, enhance the repairability of the sole after wear. Basically, shoes that adopt the structure of welt can be replaced.
5). Cork layer: The role of the cork layer can provide cushioning for shoes and also absorb sweat and dehumidify.
6). Heel: It is made by stacking several layers of hard cowhide heels and adding some functional inserts. In the heel position, wear-resistant rubber sheets are used to reduce wear and tear.
7). The spring plate is generally made of a steel sheet with good elasticity. It is placed in the midsole of the arch and the hollow layer between the strips ,acting as a buffer when walking.
Regardless of Goodyear or manual, the advantages of the welt process are:
1). Long life
The decisive effect on the life of the leather shoes is: First, the combination of the soles and the sloping sides; second, the wear of the soles. The general adhesive process is easy to remove glue after long wear, and it is difficult to restore the new shoes after degumming. And welt process: First, there is no problem of degumming; Second, the sole can be replaced after the wear, you can sew again along the welt.
2). High grade. As we all know, although technology is developed, traditional craftsmanship is still one of the ultimate selling points of high-end apparel. As a traditional handcrafted shoe, the welt process shoe is a high-grade technique commonly used by all top shoe brands for men.
3). Comfortable (softwood midsole slowly turns into a container shape for your feet), breathable (all shoes are made of leather, and sewing is mainly used to make the breathability more than adhesive shoes).
What are the specific advantages and disadvantages of Goodyear craft shoes and welt craft shoes?
1). The inner soles of the Goodyear leather shoes are mainly attached to the strip. Each time the soles are changed, they will wear the material. So, the number of times the soles of the machine’s specially made leather shoes are limited. However, a good pair of handmade welt shoes can be replaced many times, so the ultimate life of the two shoes is different. Goodyear’s shoes will have a shorter life.
2). The craftsmanship is different, and the handmade ingredients of the welt are higher than Goodyear. The Goodyear machine is a semi-handcrafted shoe, measured from a certain angle (exact three-fourths of the hand shoes, or more strictly one-third of the hand shoes, because the welt is the most important structural part of the seam). Handmade stitching is a true handcrafted shoe. So, these two products of all major brands are different series with totally different prices.
3). The prices of the two differ widely. The price of hand-stitching is much higher than Goodyear craft shoes, because each one is handmade by hand. We all know that the price of private custom is high, but Goodyear’s price is even superior in quality.
- How Should I Maintain a Pair of Leather Shoes?
There are different ways to maintain different premium leather shoes. Several common leather shoes are:
1. Waxing Series: Wax skin care is best done with white wax, but not too much wax. If you don’t mind, you can use clear shoe oil to clean the leather first, then you can wipe the leather back and forth with clean white cloth to make the leather clean and shinny.
2. Frosted Leather Series: For this kind of leather surface, use a shoe brush to remove dirt and other debris on the surface of the leather shoes. When brushing, pay attention to the direction of the fur, and then use a household hair dryer to adjust the cold air to the dust accumulated in the plush. Blow off particles and other debris. Try to avoid wearing such shoes on rainy days.
3. Calf, fetal calf, sheep, soft sheep, soft leather series: Wipe the upper with a soft and dry cloth. Select an appropriate amount of high-quality leather shoe care cream of the same color and apply it to all parts of the upper. 5 minutes, then wipe back and forth with a soft cloth, do not apply too much force until a natural gloss appears.
