Angler Moc w/ Hex Eye - FO G Brown
The Angler Moc draws its name from the style of shoe worn by Maine's freshwater fisherman of the 1950s and 60s. These anglers sought a secure fit in the footwear they brought to their sport and the moccasins they wore were distinct for the placement of the eyestay, which hugged the top of the foot. Yuketen's Angler Moc with Hex Eye brings to this classic New England sporting shoe improved vamp construction and arch support, finished with 1970s workboots detailing.
Each shoe is handsewn in our Maine factory from flesh-out full-grain leather tanned in the U.S.A. The upper is hand-punched and handsewn with awl, needle, and thread on Yuketen's proprietary last from multiple pieces of leather in order to ensure reinforcement and is cinched at the base to create an integumentary fit. Yuketen’s "flesh-out" leather is NOT suede, because we retain the grain side of the leather, providing a thickness, strength, and longevity not found with the latter material.
A Vibram Christy sole and hexagonal eyelets - both allusions to 1970s work boots - complement the dense eight layers of rubber and leather underfoot. Our distinctive midsole component, constructed from composition rubber and 100% vegetable-tanned leather [NEED PHOTO] which has been air-dried in a 90-day process, is Goodyear-stitched together before being directly stitched to the vamp leather. 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 owner's foot. Our Yuketen signature tucks are also made from 100% vegetable-tanned leather [NEED PHOTO] and will naturally accommodate the distinct shape of the wearer.
Yuketen's Angler Moc with Hex Eye draws design elements from 1950s and 60s New England sport fishing and 1970s workboots, placing them on the same stable midsole and outsole as our Maine Guide collection.
