Johnston & Murphy
"Goiser Construction"
All Weather, Cap-Toe, Monk Strap, Canvas, Spectator
Euro 280
Johnston & Murphy's version of this classic Spectator, boasts a robust all-weather, all-terrain rubber sole, Goodyear welted, with additional split-reverse-welt (storm welt). Apart from the handsome brogued cap, solid brass buckled monk strap and full leather lining under the canvas exterior, this shoe promises to be unusually comfortable and altogether a lovely and sporting presentation. It will never fail to draw compliments.
Size:  9.5D US...... (8.5E UK)...... European 42.5D, for the mid-width foot.
Condition: Excellent, lightly worn.  
Goiser/Norweger Contruction: This experienced collector will appreciate that this is a genuine Norwegian (or Goiser) construction -notice the double line of sewing around the 360 degree welt.  Both the welt and the top leather are turned outward and sewn to the street sole. The term "Norwegian" is used promiscuously to refer to several styles of shoe, notably the "Split-Toe Norwegian" with its outward turned moccasin-like apron and joining at the toe, and among Italian shoemakers, of a variety styles with decorative double sewn welts. Unlike in the present shoe, the sewing is mostly non-functional and conceals construction even as rudimentary as Blake Stitching. Very few of those are the true complex Goiser/Norwegian construction, as shown here. The term "Goiser" is derived from Bad Goisern in the Salzkammergut region of Austria. This construction was once commonly found in hand-made all-purpose mountain shoes worn in that region of the Alpsand was intended to prevent water from entering through the seams.
