[Goodyear welted shoes]
Our shoes are as close as it gets to hand made shoes. We work with Spanish craftsmen who work in the century old tradition of the goodyear technique. Since beginning of the 20th Century, this technique has been preserved through the generations and to this day remains a hallmark of the fine craftsmanship. Goodyear welted shoes are stronger than other leather shoes. That means, a pair of Barre & Brunel, well maintained, can live for years.
