Cemeted construction :
In the "Cemented" construction, the upper part, and possibly the membrane, continue underneath the insole for a few centimetres. That upper part is glued to the midsole. The "sock" is then manually glued to the outsole. If you take off the removable insole, there will be no seams visible.
The advantage of this construction is that the shoe can be resoled with an identical outsole.
Strobel construction :
In the "Strobel" construction, the upper part and possibly the membrane as well, stop closer to the inner edge of the sole. By the use of specific machines, they are both sewn to either the midsole or the outsole. In some models, an outsole can then be glued on or injected. If you take off the removable insole, you will see seams.
In this case, it will be impossible to resole the shoe.
