Unlike the classic Mary Jane with a rounded toe box, Yuketen’s Mary Jane is executed with moccasin-construction for superior comfort and hand-sewn character. The playful Mary Jane boasts a single leather strap and solid brass buckle in lieu of traditional lacing in order to realize the open-top Mary Jane silhouette.
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 upper is hand-punched and hand-sewn with awl, needle, and thread on Yuketen's proprietary last from multiple pieces of leather in order to ensure reinforcement and is cinched at the base to create an integumentary fit.
Full-leather insoles, elongated 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 also made from 100% vegetable-tanned leather and will naturally accommodate the distinct shape of the wearer.
The shoe is anchored by a 100% natural rubber crepe wedge outsole and full vegetable-tanned midsole. While the midsole offers structured and support, the outsole is extremely absorptive and soft to provide great cushion and sublime comfort. The outsole is also replaceable, allowing for years of prolonged wear.
