1940 Milspec Oxford


Yuketen’s Milspec Oxford style is a casual lace-up oxford that is Goodyear-welted in Mexico with classic American machinery and made with the same Italian full-grain calf leather that is traditionally used for military officers’ shoes. 

The shape originates from a mil-spec last that is specifically designed for infantry to guarantee long-wearing comfort. Natural leather insoles are used for this model to ensure conformity to the shape of the wearer’s foot over time for improved fit. The outsole is made of extra-thick oiled leather to maximize durability and longevity while the Goodyear stitching through the bottom of the outsole leather is sealed to eliminate thread breakage. This style also boasts a natural leather welt and deadstock Cat’s Paw rubber heels to complete the outward statement of high-quality materials and construction.  

Quality components and classic details are invaluable intrinsic elements for Yuketen footwear that are assuredly present with Yuketen’s 1940 Milspec Oxford.
