Shoe Structures: Durksytt

The series of shoe designs continues with the durksydda. A construction of many critics fundamentally rejected as cheap and poor quality shoes. But is it really that simple?

The basic principle behind the durksydda design is really quite simple; A simple sömnadsrad attach binding and the outsole of the shoe upper. The advantage of this construction is that it allows a tidy sole which can be attached near the vast shoe uppers. In addition, the overall shape is very variable. Anyone who has ever compared a couple durksydda shoes with a pair of welted know that the difference is significant.

The major downside to the construction generally, the sensitivity against moisture. Unlike the welted construction has the durksydda direct contact between the outsole and insole which allows water from the ground more easily penetrate into the shoe. Likewise, because the shoes lack the rand is protection against moisture from the side nonexistent. Another problem that is often held out of the design is the difficulty that the sole of this kind of shoes, for the simple reason that it is not possible to loosen the tread but also loosen the shoe insole from the top. Something that far from all cobblers can do.

A way to get away from parts of the problems is the further development of the structure in English often called Blake Rapid, which means that the manufacturer sew an extra abrasion trust in the sole. This prevents water from penetrating the bottom and makes it easier to soles of the shoes. The shape is slightly more robust, but still significantly slimmer than the welted.

Now it may sound like it durksydda design is something of a compromise of the welted, but it should rather be seen as two different schools, created from completely different conditions. The welted mainly advocated by British manufacturers and durksydda widely used by Italian and southern European manufacturers. Simon Crompton who runs the blog Permant Style, equals the difference between the durksydda and randysdda design with a suit of thin super 180 fabric and a British tweed suit. The latter will have a far longer life, but will never be as simple in its form.

The comparison is far from being a hundred percent, but generally speaking, Crompton an important point. The most important thing is always that the design matches the user’s preferences and shoe model uses. There are many manufacturers who favor the durksydda design to the shoe shape becomes particularly prominent. As French Berluti, whose extravagant shoes arouses covetousness among skofantaster worldwide. But there is also no shoes that any person knowingly inside the forehead running in mud.
