Glossary: Blake Stich

Definition

Of the two primary welting methods, blake is the simplest and most common. It also is a byproduct of the industrial revolution because the stitching is done on the inside of the shoe – making it impossible to do by hand. For a blake welt, the upper is wrapped around the insole and attached between it and the outsole. A single stitch attaches everything together.
