    I received my first pair of Yuketen Angler Mocs labeled Horween x Softy Glove Caramel from the S/S 2010 collection today. Here are my impressions. The mocs are extremely comfortable and it feels like the footbed is reinforced with support in the arch, it is like walking on a cloud. I think I could have went up a 1/2 size as it feel a bit narrow in the toe box. I am a 10.5 D and I got a 10.5 E. However, it is not uncomfortable and they may need to be broken in. With this said, the leather is of very high quality and the stitching is amazing. I hope to have these for many years. Here are some pics. Thanks to whatever123 for all the advice and help finding them. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Yuketen vs. Eastland comparison [​IMG]
    Love all the additional stitching in the Yuks. Color's good too. Just a thought, it would be nice if Yuketen began finishing off the edges of their leathers, sanding it smooth and coloring it, like Louis Vuitton does with it's leathers. That would be one sweet detail.

    ^Yup. I wear 9.5 in all Yuketens except the good year welt stuff thats made in Canada. It fits a 1/2 size bigger, so I wear a 9 in them.

    Our shipment will arrive on Monday, and be shipping out again on Tuesday, sizes already becoming scarce...

    hey randomkoreandude, can you take a close-up of the leather on your tab cr's? i wonder if its the same leather oak street used on their pebble leather shoes they did late last year.
