Earth Moc High
Yuketen Earth Moc High draws inspiration from the early wilderness guides of New England. The close-fitting, stitched wrappings of pliant leather worn by early natives reflected necessity laid bare by the bitterness of winter and the silent tread of the autumn hunt preceding. Modernization of the West brought lasts, dies and outsoles, applying durability to moccasin comfort.
Each pair of Yuketen’s American-made genuine moccasin-construction footwear is hand-sewn by leather artisans who have mastered their craft through decades of experience. The shoes benefit from their construction using only the best components and materials such as the Horween full grain flesh-out leathers. The leather 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.
The 100% natural crepe rubber outsoles, which provides superior traction and slip-resistance, are hand-stitched all around to the uppers. Moreover, the natural crepe rubber outsole increases stealth capabilities outdoors for close encounters with wildlife and in-town for silent stylishness. Our Yuketen signature full leather insoles are also made from 100% vegetable-tanned leather and will naturally accommodate the distinct shape of the wearer’s foot over time. The result is a shoe that will cradle its owner's foot, providing immeasurable comfort over a long trek.
Yuketen Earth Moc High is an iconic style for fully functional moccasin comfort and casual country outdoor lifestyle.
WARNING: It is important to avoid contact with any petroleum based products. For example, subtle immersion in a puddle of gasoline or an oil slick while wearing these shoes may cause the natural crepe sole to melt.
