Shoe Glossary

Brief yet thorough definitions of important footwear terminology.

Schuhwissen Glossar

P

Pelt

Tanned and cleaned dermis.

Pickling

Part of the tanning process, whereby protein is extracted from the pelt to ensure a soft and supple end product. Primarily used for leather shoe uppers. The leather used for the bottom parts of shoes is barely pickled, if at all.

Piping

A 2-centimetre-wide and 3-millimetre-thick strip of leather that is nailed to the insole and outsole to form a base for the heel. Piping makes the edge of the sole look thicker and more proportional to the bottom of the shoe. On Goodyear-welted shoes, the piping is affixed with wooden nails, whereas on double-stitched shoes the piping is stitched into place.
