Ghillie Moc DB with 2021 Cordovan
The Ghillie Moc DB earns its name from the traditional Scottish dance shoes, which suggests an aesthetic alternative to common eyelet lacing systems available on most footwear today.
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 such as the Horween’s genuine shell cordovan. Shell cordovan is considered the diamond of cordwainery, an equestrian leather named for the posterior segment of the horse from where this irregular, oval-shaped 'shell' cut of material is taken. The motion of the animal's hip joints against taut skin gives this leather a burnish that, like a diamond, plays stunningly against the light.
To closely mirror the incongruence of the human foot and deliver a molded fit, multiple pieces of leather 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.
A Vibram’s oil-resisting morflex sole complements the dense eight layers of rubber and leather underfoot. 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.
