Yuketen’s Western Ox style is entirely handcut and benchmade in Mexico onto 1930’s American semi-modified lasts for the ideal union of comfort and style. The fundamental components for this style are suede upper leather and the foundation that is constructed of a combination of veg-tan leather and Vibram’s soft composition working outsole. 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.  Yuketen’s Western Ox is named after western boots that oftentimes feature embroidery design embellishment similar to the contrast stitch embroidery that is clearly displayed on the vamp of the Western Ox. “Toe bug” is the western slang term for this decorative embroidery element.  Yuketen’s creative addition of the “toe bug” design on an oxford dress shoe silhouette merges ideals of formal footwear from two different regional cultures that achieve a modern appearance with pronounced southwest American influence.
