Yuketen’s Summer Leather Sandal is entirely hand-cut and bench-made in Mexico with American semi-modified lasts from the 1930s for an ideal union of comfort and style. The modified lasts were originally designed to stop the wearer from over-pronating, helping them to correct their gait and develop a better, healthier walking motion. As such, the semi-modified lasts provide exceptional arch support to the structure of the foot.
The fundamental components for this style are full-grain vegetable-tanned leather uppers and a 100% vegetable-tanned leather foundation including a hand-sanded insole, leather outsole, and leather stacked heel that is hand-crafted and attached with lemon tree wooden nails. The entire upper leather is lined with soft-tanned cow leather for added comfort while solid brass buckles guarantee a secure fit. Yuketen’s meticulous Goodyear stitches are made by a sturdy 1910 German-made welt stitcher and all Goodyear stitches are hand-notched along the welt for added security. The Goodyear stitching through the bottom of the outsole leather is sealed to eliminate thread breakage. In addition to their functional and aesthetic merits, these handsome sandals are also some of the most comfortable summer shoes in the Yuketen collection.
