Yuketen’s Alan boots are entirely handcut and benchmade in Mexico onto 1930’s American semi-modified lasts for the ideal union of comfort and style.

The fundamental components of this style are the handcut suede leather upper and the sturdy foundation that is constructed of multiple layers of hand-shaved 100% veg-tan leather and attached with lemon tree sourced wooden nails.  The entire upper leather is lined with soft-tanned cow leather for added comfort and durability.  Yuketen’s meticulous Goodyear stitches are made by a sturdy 1910 German-made welt stitcher and all Goodyear stitches are hand-notched for added security. 

Perhaps the most fascinating detail of this style is the orthopedic fitting which improves posture and reduces foot fatigue.  These remarkable features mark a new direction for Yuketen’s design aesthetic verging toward formal elegance while simultaneously maintaining all core principles and construction techniques for highest-quality handmade products.
