The Wingtip Ghillie Moc earns its name from the distinctive Irish dance shoe-inspired ghillie eyelet design. The all-leather looped eyelets serve as an alternative to standard punched metal eyelets and in combination with the shoes’ hand-perforated wingtip toe detail and collar, give the shoes their unique character.
Each pair of Yuketen’s American-made genuine moccasin-construction footwear is hand-sewn by leather artisans in the northeastern United States who have mastered their craft through decades of experience. The Wingtip Ghillie Moc also features Horween’s Chromexcel leather, expertly tanned in U.S.A. Chromexcel leather is particularly suitable for moccasin construction footwear because the double tanning process (combination chrome tanning and vegetable tanning) produces luxurious malleable pull-up leather with rich pleasantly aromatic liquor notes.
Although the Wingtip Ghillie Moc is one of Yuketen’s lower-profile silhouettes, it still enjoys the structural benefits of a vegetable-tanned leather tuck and steel shank. These components form a stable bridge along the arch of the foot, distributing weight more evenly across the footbed for increased comfort and support. The shoe’s upper sits atop a lightweight Vibram 2060 outsole and full vegetable-tanned leather midsole, allowing the shoes to be resoled for years of prolonged wear.
