Boat Shoe with Fabric

 
 

Yuketen has brought the comfort and quality of our handsewn moccasins to the iconic and leisurely boat shoe. Made from exquisite, American-tanned leathers, the Yuketen Boat shoe is the perfect compliment to summer dressing. 

Each shoe is made with vintage denim or  1950’s vintage U.S. army tent fabric for comfort, style and breathability. The shoe's upper is hand-punched and hand-sewn with awl, needle, and thread on Yuketen's proprietary last in order to ensure reinforcement. In addition, the base of the vamp is cinched in order to create an integumentary fit. The throat of this three-eyelet shoe is wrapped with a single collar piece, avoiding the blistering commonly associated with collar-seam stitching and concealing the shoe's 360 degrees of rawhide lacing. Our signature baseball stitch overcast and pinking decoration on the heel seam cover give a distinct aesthetic touch to this functional boating model.

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 individual owner's foot. Our Yuketen signature tucks are also made from 100% vegetable-tanned leather and will naturally accommodate the distinct shape of the wearer.

Yuketen’s signature boat sole is made from 100% rubber and is stitched directly to the vamp. Razor thin incisions in the outsole (known as 'siping') serve to provide traction by opening where pressure is applied but stay sealed against debris, therefore protecting delicate surfaces (such as boat hulls) against unwanted abrasion. 

The Boat Shoe's attractive, classic profile and premium components make it a versatile addition to any wardrobe for the summer season.
