Sports Chukka

 
 

The chukka's liminal character, offering a mid-cut profile and slender silhouette between a shoe and a boot, made it an icon of mid-60's cool. The Yuketen Sports Chukka is a modern interpretation of the classic chukka that is rendered from an organic composition of leather, crepe rubber and traditional moccasin construction. The unlined, two-eyelet shoe’s raw character is supported by details such as the omission of eyelets and an intentionally-unfinished leather edge at the ankle. 

Each shoe is hand-stitched in our factory in Maine from full-grain American-tanned leather, the flesh side of which has been preserved and displayed. This 'flesh-out' leather is NOT suede, because it retains the grain side of the leather, providing a thickness, strength, and longevity not found with the latter material. The shoe's upper is hand-punched and hand-sewn with awl, needle, and thread on Yuketen's proprietary last in order to ensure reinforcement.

A sport crepe outsole - modeled on classic running shoe soles - is directly attached to a natural-crepe midsole. This double pairing of American-made natural crepe provides superb shock absorption and an incredibly soft and slip-resistant tread, ensuring sublime comfort for the wearer.
