I haven't had this issue, but I can say that both my wife and I have had a lot of work done at Derek's in Portland (in Morgan's Alley) and it's all been top notch--and very fairly priced.

You can try and contact Meg Company the parent company to yuketen. My Maine guides are there for a resole and tightening up because they stretched a lot over the years. Working with a gentleman Yusuke and he has been top notch with informative and prompt replies. PM me if you need his contact info

I missed out on these Sports Hunt Boots. Does anyone know if Yuketen generally makes these every season? I can't find them in stock anywhere.

Yeah, that's a pretty classic standby model for Yuketen. The problem is that they only manufacture what shops order, so if no one ordered it this season, you're out of luck.

Try here, still some sizes available.. And on sale!

Thank you! Unfortunately none in my size, assuming that they run pretty true. I'm a TTS 9 and could sometimes fit in an 8.5.

Great. Guess I'll just have to wait and see. I just started exploring the brand recently.

Hi everyone,

 

I'm looking to get my first ever pair of leather boots and my stockist is currently having a sale for yuketen.

 

Most likely i'm going to get this:

Any comments on the boots? What are the proper care method for the boots? I'm from Singapore, so the weather is pretty much sunny and rainy. Usage wise i guess i'm pretty much going to wear it to school. No rough usage etc.

 

Would really appreciate you guys help! If there's any fellow singaporean in this thread please shout out too!

Looks like a nice pair of boots. As for care, it depends of the leather. If it's CXL it's pretty sturdy and just have to brush it after it gets some dirt. Other regular type leathers just brush and condition them. If you're putting them through a lot of wet muck then go with obenaufs or something designed for waterproofing.

Hey guys. I recently bought these Yuketen chukkas from another SF member and I'm curious to know if the leather is horween chromexcel or something else. I also read recently that sometimes Yuketen had their footwear mostly constructed in the Dominican Republic and then finished in the USA. So I'm curious what years they did this, and if anyone can identify what season/year these boots are I could tell further. I've been wearing them a few weeks now and although I do really like them, they don't seem as supple as a pair of Quoddy bluchers that I have (which I'm pretty sure are horween chromexcel). I never found out from the person I bought them from what season these were, nor more detail about the leather - so I'm hoping someone with more Yuketen knowledge than I could give me a little bit of insight. Just curious!

Thank you!

At first glance, that appears to be some sort of waxed flesh.

 

As far as I know, Yuketen manufactures their handsewns in Maine, primarily through Highland or in their own small workshop

Yuketen has a small workshop in Maine where everything is done from start to finish. They're definitely made in America. The Monitaly lookbook from FW10 actually features the "manager" of their workshop modeling Monitaly garments.

I dont think Yuketen would label some footwear made in Mexico or Canada, if they could just finish it here and say "Made in the USA"

I wouldn't worry about it. smile.gif

There are, very clearly, some Yuketen boots that are made in Canada. uhoh.gif

Not sure what you mean here. As Mr. Moo said, all of Yuketen's goodyear welted footwear is made in Canada or Mexico, and is clearly labeled as such right there on the shoe. I have heard they have a small workshop for some of their moccasin constructed shoes, but Highland also used to make some of them. I'm not sure where they are currently making all of their handsewn moccasins. They don't seem to be making many these days

Thanks guys. Last question - any idea what would be the best way to care for these? I emailed Yuketen customer service a few weeks ago and haven't heard back. Mostly just wondering what kind of oil I should use to keep the leather happy.

Some pretty rad Plain Toe Walkers from Yuketen, made for Woodlands in black suede.
