Yuketen’s Loafer with Christy Sole marries the beloved Vibram Christy sole with an elegant yet robust moccasin loafer upper.
Each pair of Yuketen’s American-made genuine moccasin-construction footwear is hand-sewn by leather artisans in the northeastern United States who have mastered their craft through decades of experience. The shoe’s upper is rendered in Horween’s waxed flesh-out leathers, giving it exceptional water repellent properties and an ability to vintage more quickly than other shoes. The upper is hand-punched and handsewn with awl, needle, and thread on Yuketen's proprietary last from multiple pieces of leather in order to ensure reinforcement and an integumentary fit. Lovely hand-sewn details include the skin-stitched saddle, overcast, plug and heel. Yuketen’s signature pinked collar and backstay round out the silhouette with Yuketen flair.
Although the Loafer with Christy Sole is one of Yuketen’s lower-profile silhouettes, it still enjoys the structural benefits of a vegetable-tanned leather tuck and steel shank. These components form a stable bridge along the arch of the foot, distributing weight more evenly across the footbed for increased comfort. The shoe’s upper sits atop a full vegetable-tanned leather midsole and the classic Vibram Christy sole, allowing the shoes to be resoled for years of prolonged wear.
