All Handsewn Canoe Moc with Camp Sole
Simplified the Yuketen’s timeless canoe moc silhouette, the upper of the All Handsewn Canoe Moc is constructed using only two pieces of leather while offering functional 360 degree leather lacing adjustability for optimum fitting. Yuketen canoe moc’s lacing technique is borrowed from the lacing method used by veteran river and stream guides for improved adjustability on 360 degree lace-through loafer shoes to provide a more secure fit in wet conditions.
Each pair of Yuketen’s genuine moccasin-construction footwear is handcrafted in our factory in Maine, USA. The shoes benefit from their construction using only the best components and materials. Chromexcel is a buttery, malleable "pull-up" leather born of a unique double-tanning process of vegetable and chrome treatments, which imbues the leather with pleasantly aromatic liquor notes. Its suppleness, revealing of lighter tones in its oiled surface when stretched, makes it particularly suitable to moccasin construction. Horween full grain flesh-out leather is is described as ‘flesh-out’ as it is full-grain leather that is flipped so that the flesh side of the leather faces outwards. The advantages of using full grain, flesh-out leather rather than split suede leathers are two fold; full grain leathers retain their structure, thickness and durability for long-lasting strength and the smooth grain side of the leather wears pleasantly against the skin, negating the need for additional liners. This way, the wearer enjoys the benefits of full grain leather and the pleasant aesthetic of the nappy, suede-like flesh side of the leather.
To closely mirror the incongruence of the human foot and deliver a molded fit, the upper leathers are hand-sewn and hand-lasted on Yuketen’s proprietary last. In addition, the base of the vamp has been cinched to further ensure an integumentary fit.
Full vegetable-tanned leather insoles and midsoles, and tucks with steel shank reinforcements increase fitting in the arch and heel as well as lessen foot fatigue by forming a stable bridge between the heel and ball of the owner's foot which causes weight to be distributed more evenly across the foot. This results in reduced foot fatigue and improved comfort. Yuketen’s signature tucks are made from 100% vegetable-tanned leather and will naturally accommodate the distinct shape of the wearer.
The shoe’s upper sits atop a camp sole made out of 100% rubber and cork chip, which reminiscent of 1960’s work boot style. The outsole is sewn to the vamp leather, allowing the shoes to be resoled for years of prolonged wear.
