Sizing Guide: Yuketen moccasin styles are true to US standard size. We recommend checking your shoe size in the New Balance Made in USA models (ex. 993, 996, 998) or on the Brannock Device.
Ex. If your size is US 9D in the Made in USA New Balance shoes, you will most likely find a comfortable fit in the US 9E in our moccasin shoe/boot.
If you are comparing with Nike athletic shoes, we recommend sizing down a half size for our moccasins.
Ex. US size 9E in our moccasins, US size 9.5 in Nike athletic shoes.
Please note that this is just a sizing reference. Every single person has different shape of foot. Thus, to determine the most accurate size for your foot, we suggest visiting a Yuketen stockist if there is one near you for fitting advice and the opportunity to try on an actual pair. If you are unsure about the sizing, please contact us for advice before purchasing.
Yuketen has brought the comfort and quality of our handsewn moccasins to the iconic and leisurely boat shoe. Made from exquisite, American-tanned leathers, the Yuketen Boat shoe is the perfect compliment to summer dressing.
Each shoe is hand-stitched in our Maine, U.S.A. factory from American-tanned Horween leather. The shoe's upper is hand-punched and hand-sewn with awl, needle, and thread on Yuketen's proprietary last in order to ensure reinforcement. In addition, the base of the vamp is cinched to create an integumentary fit. The throat of this three-eyelet shoe is wrapped with a single collar piece, avoiding the blistering commonly associated with collar-seam stitching and concealing the shoe's 360 degrees of rawhide lacing. Our signature baseball stitch overcast and pinking decoration on the heel seam cover give a distinct aesthetic touch to this traditional boating model.
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 individual 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.
Yuketen’s signature boat sole is made from 100% rubber and is stitched directly to the vamp. Razor thin incisions in the outsole (known as 'siping') serve to provide traction by opening where pressure is applied but stay sealed against debris, therefore protecting delicate surfaces (such as boat hulls) against unwanted abrasion.
The Boat Shoe's attractive, classic profile and premium components make it a versatile addition to any wardrobe for the summer season.
