Ian with Crepe Wedge Sole

  • Reminiscent of a classic Mary Jane, Yuketen’s Ian shoe pushes the single strap design towards masculinity with an elongated vamp that reaches further towards the ankle and an elongated, pointed toe box. The fundamental components for this style are luxurious suede uppers lined with soft-tanned cow leather for added comfort and a foundation that is constructed of a combination of vegetable-tanned leather midsoles and 100% natural crepe soles. While the midsole offers structured and support, the outsole is extremely absorptive and soft to provide great cushion and sublime comfort.

    Yuketen’s meticulous Goodyear stitches are made by a sturdy 1910 German-made welt stitcher and all Goodyear stitches are hand-notched for added security. This casual style verges toward old-world elegance while simultaneously maintaining all core principles and construction techniques for high-quality, handmade footwear.

    WARNING: It is important to avoid contact with any petroleum based products as they may cause the natural crepe rubber sole to dissolve.
