  • 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 Sports 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 unlined, two-eyelet shoe’s raw character is supported by details such as the omission of eyelets and an intentionally-unfinished leather edge at the ankle. 

Each shoe is hand-stitched in our factory in Maine from full-grain American-tanned leather, the flesh side of which has been preserved and displayed. This 'flesh-out' leather is NOT suede, because it retains the grain side of the leather, providing a thickness, strength, and longevity not found with the latter material. 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.

A sport crepe outsole - modeled on classic running shoe soles - is directly attached to a natural-crepe midsole. This double pairing of American-made natural crepe provides superb shock absorption and an incredibly soft and slip-resistant tread, ensuring sublime comfort for the wearer.

WARNING: It is important to avoid contact with any petroleum based products as this may cause the natural crepe outsole to dissolve
