Bostonian - Synthetic Vaqueta Black


Yuketen has deconstructed the timeless strap sandal style, reducing it to its rudiments and fundamental beauty. Yuketen’s Zuricher Rocker is a simple work of craftsmanship with elevated components befitting of the nature of handcrafted leather sandal. 

Each sandal is entirely hand-cut and hand-constructed from a synthetic vaquetta leather that Yuketen specially develops for this style for the vegan culture in California. This ‘vegan’ leather is easier to maintenance than the real leather as it is water-repellent, yet one can still have a joyful moment polishing them like a real leather. With the USA made solid brass buckle on the strap, it provides simple, yet delicate and elegant finish. 

The three-dimensional footbed constructed with the toe bar, arch support and heel cup increases fitting in the arch and heel as well as lessen foot fatigue, and helps the weight to be distributed more evenly across the foot and accommodate the distinct shape of the wearer. The rocker outsole on this shoe was exclusively made for Yuketen based upon an outsole that was used for orthopedic patients in need of soft and forgiving outsoles. The low heel-toe designed outsole creates a unique fulcrum effect like a rocking chair to guide a better gait cycle. This light-weighted EVA foam rocker sole gives a supremely comfort even for a long track.

Yuketen’s Zuricher Rocker is the recommended selection for truly comfortable footwear when wearing in sub-tropical climates among local neighborhoods, seaside communities or walkabouts.
