Love these shoes.

 

Maybe a shade darker IRL, and I agree- great pair of shoes!

Good question... I believe they are made in Quebec, but I don't know the manufacturer name.

Sorry I cant figure out how to post pics from another website, so I've got to post the link.

Whats the deal with the Yuketen 'Brandy' engineer boots? I love Yuketen, and I've been looking for an engineer style boot. Anyone know if these were available ANYWHERE?!?!

I spent the better part of an afternoon at work trying to track these down on the google but to no avail. Anyone have a clue where they might be?

They may not have made them this season.  Yuketen only produces what their dealers order.  It is a little misleading to look at their collection because many of the shoes available in the collection may not have been produced.

 

The Maine Guide is really a winter shoe and most dealers order them in the fall so that will likely be the best time to buy. 

 

They have a dealer list on their website:  http://www.yuketen.com/index.php/stockists.

 

Check out LN-CC, TBS, End, Norse Projects, Coggles and Up There (Context and BB as well) as they seem to have the best buyers and will generally find the most sought after Yuketen styles/colors at one of these stores.

Do a little digging on google. I've found past season Yuks for ~50-80% off. There was recently a flood of them for cheap, but most of them have been bought up. I've occasionally found some decent deals on ebay to. Like everyone said they should be coming around again in the fall. If you're interested in a similar boot, check Quoddy. They make the guide boots for Yuketen, and last I checked they had a sale on their Grizzly boot which is essentially the same boot.

Oak Street Boot Makers has a similar style available now, I think they are offering it in a few different colors.

Quoddy does not make shoes for Yuketen.  Quoddy makes Quoddy.  Yuketen sources several shoe makers around the US and Canada (NOT QUODDY) depending on the style, materials, and type of sole construction.  The Shorley's did at one point help Yuki but that was many years ago.

 

Quoddy's Grizzly and the Yuketen MG are totally different shoes and are in no way the same (other then they are both leather shoes).

Sorry, just going on what I was told by the shop I picked up my last pair at. They told me that the moc type shoes were done by Quoddy and I think Rancourt (think that's how you spell it) here in the US, and most of the welted type shoes are done in Canada. I have both the maine guides and grizzly boots and the stitching is virtually identical, except for the toe and sole difference.

Whatever, the point is mute, they're all great shoes. I don't have any experience with Oak Street but I'm sure they are on par.

Last I checked there were Maine Guides at Bodega if the OP is still interested.

Oh, Rancourt makes Rancourt, Oak Street makes Oak Street, Arrow makes Arrow, Russell makes Russell, Yuketen makes Yuketen.  I am sure you get the point by now.

 

None of the companies make each others shoes.  Rancourt and Eastland MiM do make shoes for several private stores but they are sold under the stores respective name.  Rancount also makes several moc constructed type shoes for a couple major clothing manufactures.

 

Not sure why you still conclude that Quoddy's Grizzly is the same as Yuketen's MG but again, they are completely different shoes.  It's like saying a Nike and Adidas are the same because they both have the same shape but we all know they are not the same.  Perhaps they have some similarities but they are not the same.

 

Hope this helps and clarifies the confusion.

Rancourt made Oak Street at one point I'm pretty sure and Quoddy definitely made Yuketens at one point
