2 Pcs Oxford - S Brown
Each shoe is hand-stitched in our factory in Maine with Horween shrunken chromexcel leather. Chromexcel is a buttery, malleable 'pull-up' leather born of a unique double-tanning process of vegetable and chrome treatments, which imbues the leather with pleasantly aromatic liquor notes. Its suppleness, revealing of lighter tones in its oiled surface when stretched, makes it particularly suitable for moccasin construction. 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. In addition, the base of the vamp is cinched in order to create an integumentary fit.
Full-leather insoles, leather tucks, and 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 individual owner's foot. Our Yuketen signature tucks are also made from 100% vegetable-tanned leather and will naturally accommodate the distinct shape of the wearer.
Yuketen’s signature Boat Sole is made from 100% natural rubber and is stitched directly to the vamp. Razor thin incisions in the outsole (known as 'siping') serve to provide traction by opening where pressure is applied but staying sealed against debris, therefore protecting delicate surfaces against unwanted abrasion.
