Heritage Craftsmanship and Forward-Looking Design
Having formed creative partnerships with the finest leather footwear and luggage craftsmen, Yuketen’s designer, Yuki Matsuda, is able to combine the most refined shoe making traditions and techniques with progressive, adventurous designs. The result is something truly unique- shoes that reflect our global perspective, relentless pursuit of quality, and fearless attitude towards bold, forward-looking design.
Each season Yuketen strives to improve upon our tradition of progressive design and functional advancement. For the 2015SS collection, we’ve refined the fit on our popular moccasin-style silhouettes for improved comfort alongside our 100% natural rubber boat soles. The hand-made outsoles are stitched directly to the vamp, reducing the need for additional chemical adhesives. Other embellishments such as Native American conchos invoke the Native American spirit that inspires much of our work. Additional design features include Yuketen mainstays such as vegi-tan leather tucks, steel shank arch reinforcement, and hand-sewn stitching. We utilize only the finest components and construction techniques in order to provide the discerning customer with unique, durable, and fulfilling footwear.
Yuketen’s boundary-crossing products serve the new adventurers- global nomads who seek new perspectives yet have a profound respect for the past. May you enjoy the products of our labor wherever your journey takes you…
