The simplicity of the Wingtip Venetian places the focus of this silhouette on the fine hand-perforated details decorating the wingtip and collar and the top class Horween Chromexcel leather that comprises the shoes’ understated upper. Expertly tanned in the U.S.A., Chromexcel leather is particularly suitable for moccasin construction footwear because the double tanning process (a combination of chrome tanning and vegetable tanning) produces luxurious malleable pull-up leather with rich pleasantly aromatic liquor notes.
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. Although the Wingtip Venetian 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. The shoe’s upper sits atop a 100% natural rubber Boat Sole which is sewn to the vamp leather, allowing the shoes to be resoled for years of use.
