Shoe Glossary

Brief yet thorough definitions of important footwear terminology.

Schuhwissen Glossar

V

Vamp

The front portion of the upper. Can consist of a single piece or several pieces.

Vamp Cut

The basic shaft cut for shoes with closed lacing, whereby the vamp is added on top of the side pieces of the shaft.

Vegetable Tanning

A tanning method that only involves plant-based tanning agents. Leather lining is usually vegetable-tanned, since it comes directly into contact with the skin—vegetable-tanned leather is hypoallergenic.

Veldtschoen

Veldtschoen construction is a type of Goodyear-welting shoe production method whereby the lining is welted to the insole edge or the insole bridge before the upper is attached. Once the lining has been welted, the upper is placed on top of the welt and double-stitched onto the midsole. A second stitch connects the upper with the welting and the outsole. This shoe production method results in sturdy, waterproof shoes that retain their form.
