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.
'At the frontier the environment is at first too strong for the man. He must accept the conditions which it furnishes, or perish, and so he fits himself into the Indian clearings and follows the Indian trails. Little by little he transforms the wilderness, but the outcome is not the old Europe... The fact is, that here is a new product that is American.'
- Frederick Jackson Turner, 'The Significance of the Frontier in American History'
Yuketen's Maine Guide collection draws inspiration from the early wilderness guides of New England, who in leading European hunters and traders into contact with indigenous North Americans brought about a cultural synthesis most aptly reflected in the boots these guides wore. The close-fitting, stitched wrappings of pliant leather worn by early natives reflected necessity laid bare by the bitterness of winter and the silent tread of the autumn hunt preceding. Modernization of the West brought lasts, dies and outsoles, applying durability to moccasin comfort. Rendered in a higher profile, the classic 'American' guide boot was born, and it is in tribute to the propulsive spirit of the boot's earliest owners that Yuketen has approached a new frontier in its design.
Yuketen true moccasin footwear’s are genuine handsewn by highly skilled and experienced leather artisans who take great pride and fulfillment in their work. Yuketen true moccasins are made like socks with leather which cradles the bottom of the foot for an incredible comfort sensation.
These shoes are handmade in Maine, U.S.A. from full-grain pull-up leather tanned in U.S.A. Pull-up leather makes beautiful moccasin footwear due to the definition of the shoe last that is impressed upon the leather during the hand-lasting production process.
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. Nine layers of highest quality materials (leather & rubber) are sandwiched between the lucky owner’s foot and the ground.
The Maine Guide collection, available only from Yuketen, is inspired by Maine wilderness guides with rugged features including functional and durable pattern shapes designed to endure the elements. The Maine Guide Ox affords identical capabilities of the other Maine Guide models in a more accessible low-cut silhouette.
