With the Runner 70 High, Yuketen has deconstructed the premium sneaker, reducing it to its rudiments and building upon the success of the original Runner 70. A testament to practical engineering, the silhouette is inspired by running shoes of the 1960s and 70s. A center seam vamp overlay, slim profile, and vamp perforations are presented in traditional solid colors, with gold metallic script - an allusion to these vintage running models - being the only embellishment.

     A full-grain leather upper with full-leather lining permits conformity to the wearer’s foot, while 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.

     A classic stitching technique unique to sneaker construction and known as 'side mcKay' stitching is used to securely attach our exclusive two-tone ripple sneaker sole directly to the upper. This traditional construction process bonds rubber and leather together, securing the sole for long-term durability. Cotton laces threaded through five eyelets adorn the upper.

     A simply offering of leather and lace, the Runner 70 High is a study in simple mechanics, bringing brevity to the luxury sneaker.
