Inspired by Mexican huaraches (native sandals often made only of leather scraps and strips of tire joined together by nails) Yuketen’s Braided Sandal is a simple work of craftsmanship with elevated components befitting of the hand-made construction of this style. The shoes’ perforated upper is accented by solid brass hardware and an exquisite braided leather cord that borders the bottom of the vamp.

Each sandal is hand-cut and completely hand-constructed from select cuts of tumbled, American-tanned Horween leather. Solid brass buckles and hardware on the straps and upper and a natural-crepe rubber sole, directly attached to the midsole, accentuate the hand-made nature of the shoe. Made in the U.S.A. from 100% natural crepe, the sole used on the Braided Sandal provides additional shock absorption and an incredibly soft and slip-resistant tread, providing sublime comfort to the wearer.

WARNING: It is important to avoid contact with any petroleum based products as they may cause the natural crepe rubber sole to dissolve.
