5 Eye Boots with Strap
Yuketen’s early notoriety owed much to our resuscitation of the ranger moccasin boots style. A classic, masculine design blending moccasin and blucher and made popular in the 1950’s, the ranger moccasin was long-overlooked prior to its reinterpretation and reintroduction by Yuketen. Keeping with a philosophy that seeks to push the evolution of footwear design and construction toward higher standards of excellence, Yuketen has continued to improve upon the fundamental structure of this popular silhouette, while preserving its New England heritage.
Each pair of Yuketen’s genuine moccasin-construction footwear is handcrafted in our factory in Maine, USA. The boots benefit from their construction using only the best components and materials such as the Horween full grain flesh-out leathers. Yuketen’s 'flesh-out' leather is NOT suede, because we retain the grain side of the leather, providing a thickness, strength, and longevity not found with the latter material.
Presented in a blucher profile, the 5 Eye Boots brings together the most advanced methods in hand and machine shoe construction. Hand-stitch the shoe's tip to the vamp leather, which cradles the foot, the heel is then machine-lasted, the resultant upper resting atop eight-layers of stacked midsole components and a natural crepe rubber outsole.
Full-leather insoles, leather tucks, and steel shank reinforcements increase fitting in the arch and heel as well as lessen foot fatigue by forming a stable bridge between the heel and ball of the owner's foot. Our Yuketen signature tucks are made from 100% vegetable-tanned leather and will naturally accommodate the distinct shape of the wearer.
Made in the U.S.A. from 100% natural crepe rubber, the wedge sole provides superior shock absorption and an incredibly soft and slip-resistant tread.
The 5 Eye Boots w/ Strap, available exclusively from Yuketen, combines contemporary components with heritage moccasin construction for informal, urban elegance.
WARNING: It is important to avoid contact with any petroleum based products. For example, subtle immersion in a puddle of gasoline or an oil slick while wearing these shoes may cause the natural crepe sole to melt.
