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.
The chukka's liminal character, offering a mid-cut profile and slender silhouette between a shoe and a boot, made it an icon of mid-60's cool. The Yuketen Dress Chukka is a modern interpretation of the classic chukka that is rendered from an organic composition of leather, crepe rubber and traditional moccasin construction. The lined, three-eyelet shoe’s raw character is supported by details such as the omission of eyelets and Yuketen's signature pinking on the overlay and backstay.
Each shoe is hand-stitched in our factory in Maine from a combination of full-grain American-tanned leather and imitation snake skin 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. An absorptive Vibram Christy outsole is directly attached to a vegetable-tanned leather midsole which is stitched directly to the vamp leather. This outsole and midsole combination is replaceable, adding years of life to the shoes.
