Yuketen’s Ranchero boots are entirely handcut and benchmade in Mexico the way western boots are supposed to be made for an ideal union of comfort and style.
These boots are handcrafted from soft and supple cow suede upper lined with soft-tanned cow leather for added comfort and durability. An equally fundamental component of this style is the sturdy foundation that is constructed of multiple layers of hand-shaved 100% veg-tan leather and attached with lemon tree sourced wooden nails.
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. Veg-tan leather insoles ensure conformity to the shape of the wearer’s foot for long-term comfort. Forepart of the insoles are hand-sanded as it helps to absorb the moisture from the feet and keeps them dry. Perhaps the most fascinating detail of this style is the orthopedic fitting which improves posture and reduces foot fatigue.
These remarkable features mark a new direction for Yuketen’s design aesthetic verging toward formal elegance while simultaneously maintaining all core principles and construction techniques for highest-quality handmade products.
