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 true moccasin footwear are genuine handsewn by highly skilled and experienced leather artisans who take great pride and fulfillment in their work.
Yuketen’s true moccasins are handmade at Yuketen’s bespoke moccasin factory in Maine, U.S.A. with the concept to create shoes and boots which cradle the bottom of the foot like leather socks. These specialized chukkas are handmade with with the flesh side of full-grain leather tanned in U.S.A. Yuketen’s flesh-out leather is NOT suede because we retain the quality grain side of the leather for thickness, strength, and long-term durability. The replaceable sole is a soft-compound working sole from Vibram to maximize cushion and support and Yuketen’s full leather insole offers unparalleled comfort with genuine moccasin style and Yuketen’s full leather insole offers unparalleled comfort with genuine moccasin style. Complementary to the sole detail, an exemplary sturdy and comfortable nine layers of highest quality materials (e.g. 100% veg-tan leather midsole, composition rubber midsole, and 100% veg-tan leather tuck) are sandwiched between the lucky owner’s foot and the ground. Indicative of the quality materials in this incredible nine-layer platform combination are Yuketen’s exclusive leather tuck and leather midsole components, which are made from 100% veg-tan leather that is carefully tanned without foreign chemicals and hung to air dry for ninety days; artful leather creation with turn-of-the-century tanning processes from almost one hundred years past.
