The Santoni Goodyear is not a style but a unique process that allows for the ultimate comfort of the wearer. A cross section of a Santoni shoe made with teh Goodyear process would reveal not one, but two insoles that sandwich a cork blend liner. Over time the cork blend will soften and shape itself to your feet. Another aspect of the Goodyear process; the stitching is outside the foot and covered with a leather welt. This further allows the leather to mold to your foot. Comfort and durability are the hallmarks of the Goodyear process.
