History In 1858, a young employee from the sewing machine manufacturer Singer makes an invention that is a small revolution in the world of footwear. It democratizes the shoe sewn on leather sole and meets with great success. Advantages The Blake welt models are light and flexible, and even more on a rubber sole. The visual of the shoe is finer than a Goodyear construction. However, from a technical point of view, durability and impermeability are less than with a Norwegian or Goodyear construction.
