Yuketen Footwear - Page 119

post #1771 of 2032

Just received my 2nd pair of Yuks (from Bodega.. fast shipping!) and I know it's been said before, but I gotta reiterate, these shoes are pretty mind blowing. I grabbed the mismatched suede chukkas earlier this year, and this new pair is the Maine Guide DB Chukka with olive and orange waxed cotton panels (which were a steal for $198/60% off. Bodega!). Build quality is over the top, puts the Red Wing Wabasha boot to shame.

 

I ordered a 9 (my Barrie last size) in both pairs, and fit seems pretty consistent... that is, a bit narrow in the toe box that self-corrects as the shoe stretches out, and pretty roomy (even a touch wide) through the rest of the shoe, particularly the heel.

 

Anyways, killer shoes, killer retail experience, killer sale on Bodega's website.

hey kixslf,

man, i have been looking for some yuks for a minute now. i looked at the stocklists, and tried to stay within the states. very few stores carrying them this season. and at their price point, i want a pair i am perfectly pleased with. in a 7.5. i like the ones you're offering (top) but, i would prefer a darker sole. great shoes, and i may just pick those up!

Just picked up a pair of tweed hunt boots from the thrift store brand new. Pretty stoked on the find. Amazed at the quality. I've been a quoddy guy from the start but I may be leaning my allegiance towards yuketen.

how would something like the MG peanut suede hold up to winter weather? is the rain just going to ruin the suede?

Some exposure to rain won't ruin suede, but if you continually wear it the rain, it will get a bit hammered. You can get spray on treatments that help. In the long run, though, you'll be happier w/ a leather version of some sort.

Agreed. Suede doesn't need to be babied as much as many people think (unless you want it to look close to new), but it won't hold up to a lot of abuse, especially weather. Rough out leathers are a good choice if you like the aesthetic of suede, but want greater durability. Yuketen has a waxed rough out Maine Guide boot that is ideal for rainy weather.

Anyone have an opinion on how the basic boat soled unlined chukkas run? I tend to have a hard time sizing moccasin toe shoes (never got Oak Streets sized right; had a pair of Quoddy Ring boots that didn't fit). Always have trouble right where they crease over the toes.

cheers guys it would be my sole winter boot, specifically for wearing when i dont want to wreck something else so i think leather will be a better option

Geesh, the Yukuten Paul boot is not an easy one to track down. Anybody?

shameless plug, but i have a couple pairs of yukes up for cheap in the marketplace.

and just to add to the thread, peanut suede would suck in the winter weather if you live anywhere there is snow/sleet/rain.

The tan color is in my opinion by far the most beautiful one. Shipping is from Europe but I can ship worldwide. I'm asking $300 since they are new!

I just bought these in size 12. I wear 44 in common projects, 45 in birkenstocks, 11.5 in vans, 10.5/11 in converse. Hope that helps.
