Maine Guide Chukka with 2021
Yuketen true moccasin footwear are genuine handsewn by highly skilled and experienced leather artisans who take great pride and fulfillment in their work.
Yuketen’s true moccasins are handmade at Yuketen’s bespoke moccasin factory in Maine, U.S.A. with the concept to create shoes and boots which cradle the bottom of the foot like leather socks. These specialized chukkas are handmade with Horween’s Chromexcel leather tanned in U.S.A or flesh side of full-grain leather tanned in U.S.A. Chromexcel leather is significant and particularly suitable for moccasin construction footwear as a result of the unique double tanning process (combination chrome tanning and vegetable tanning) that produces luxurious malleable pull-up leather with rich pleasantly aromatic liquor notes. Yuketen’s flesh-out leather is NOT suede because we retain the quality grain side of the leather for thickness, strength, and long-term durability. The replaceable sole is a soft-compound working sole from Vibram to maximize cushion and support and Yuketen’s full leather insole offers unparalleled comfort with genuine moccasin style and Yuketen’s full leather insole offers unparalleled comfort with genuine moccasin style. Complementary to the sole detail, an exemplary sturdy and comfortable nine layers of highest quality materials (e.g. 100% veg-tan leather midsole, composition rubber midsole, and 100% veg-tan leather tuck) are sandwiched between the lucky owner’s foot and the ground. Indicative of the quality materials in this incredible nine-layer platform combination are Yuketen’s exclusive leather tuck and leather midsole components, which are made from 100% veg-tan leather that is carefully tanned without foreign chemicals and hung to air dry for ninety days; artful leather creation with turn-of-the-century tanning processes from almost one hundred years past. Yuketen’s exclusive veg-tan leather tuck delivers comfort, durability, authenticity, and compelling proof of Yuketen’s indisputable position as a unique footwear innovator for generations to come.
Yuketen’s Maine Guide Chukka silhouette offers a clean-cut intentionally unfinished top-line with slightly more ankle coverage and more stitching reinforcement than Yuketen’s standard chukka. The Maine Guide collection, available only from Yuketen, is inspired by Maine wilderness guides with rugged features including functional and durable pattern shapes designed to endure the elements.
