In a Blake construction, the outer sole is directly stitched to the insole so it is like a half welt.
It has a more discreet profile and is generally used on finer boots and shoes, this allows more flexibility and lighter weight as compared to the sturdier Goodyear construction.
Blake welt footwear can be re-soled with specialist machines but not through general shoe repairers.
