The Yukerolean is an auspicious addition to the Yuketen collection derived from inspiration by the traditional alpine shoe style, which originates in the region of Tyrol, an area of the Alps and a territory that is now split between modern-day Austria and Italy.
Each shoe is hand-crafted in Yuketen’s partner factory in Italy, where has been making the genuine alpine shoe since the 1920s, from select cuts of supple cow suede upper and oiled full-grain leather lined with soft-tanned cow leather for added comfort. A full-grain pinked leather welt is stitched to both to the upper and the insole with Norwegian welt stitching, also known as "waterproof welt" because of the effective seal this creates. The distinctive ridge of pinched leather that runs from the tip to the collar is adorned by pinking as an artistic reflection of the welt pinking detail.
Vibram’s Italian-made lug sole, full-leather insoles, natural cork filler for cushioning, 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.
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.
