• The welt on the Belluno is sewn down with a single stitch whereas on the Tahoe there is a semi-staggered double-stitch (this is visible in the website photos). In both cases the welt does not overlay the upper, which I believe is the criterion of a true Norwegian welt. So perhaps they are better characterized as some forms of Goodyear welt construction. Based on actual wear they are durable and perform extremely well, and should allow for relatively easy resoling. As for the shank, the Belluno is somewhat more flexible than the Tahoe which is said to have a nylon and steel half shank, so perhaps the former has a nylon half shank.
