Yuketen's Sneaker Moc is a joyful leap in footwear design, bringing together the pliant comfort of the moccasin and the subtle aestheticism of the iconic 1970s tennis shoe. The three-dimensional pattern construction adopted specifically for this model is a testament to the capability and experience of our hand-sewers. To closely mirror the incongruence of the human foot, five asymmetrical pieces of leather are tacked snugly to Yuketen’s proprietary last before being hand-punched and hand-sewn with awl, needle, and thread. The hand-sewer must demonstrate controlled precision in order to ensure an integumentary fit, making the Sneaker Moc one of our most advanced and exacting creations to date.
Hand-sewn in our Maine factory from a combination of printed hair-on and scotch grain leathers, the Sneaker Moc is only partially lined, giving it both pliability and a traditionalism which underlies its forward-leaning design. 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 made from 100% vegetable-tanned leather and will naturally accommodate the distinct shape of the wearer. Directly stitched to the leather vamp, Yuketen’s boat sole is made from 100% natural rubber and can be replaced to extend the life of the shoe for years of wear.
Yuketen's Sneaker Moc Oxford offers the integrity and comfort of our handsewn moccasins realized in a more modern silhouette, providing an aesthetic of deconstructed athleticism.
