Yuketen true moccasin footwear are genuine handsewn by highly skilled and experienced leather artisans who take great pride and fulfillment in their work. Yuketen’s true moccasins are handmade at Yuketen’s bespoke moccasin factory in Maine, U.S.A. with the concept to create shoes and boots which cradle the bottom of the foot like leather socks.
These specialized boots are handmade with a combination of American jacquard woven wool and the waxed flesh side of full-grain leather tanned in U.S.A. Waxed leather is inherently waterproof and was therefore adopted as a preferred material for U.S. Marine footwear. Yuketen incorporates this leather on several styles because waxed leather vintages more quickly than other leathers. After only a few months of wear, the footwear will appear as though they’ve been worn for years.
The handsewing technique applied to this unique Maine Guide Boot style is fondly referred to as “baseball stitch” because it resembles the cross-hatch seams of a baseball. The “baseball stitch” handsewing technique is more difficult and time-consuming than the traditional handsewn technique.
The sole is Vibram’s soft composition outsole designed for maximum impact absorption on concrete or asphalt surfaces. Complementary to the sole detail, an exemplary sturdy and comfortable nine layers of highest quality materials (e.g. 100% veg-tan leather midsole, composition rubber midsole, and full leather overlay) are sandwiched between the lucky owner’s foot and the ground.
The Maine Guide collection, available only from Yuketen, is a heritage collection that is inspired by Maine’s wilderness guides and replete with rugged features including functional and durable patterns designed to endure the elements and the test of time.
