Boat shoes in cracked hand painted white leather and crocodile

Yuketen Summer/Spring 2014

Yuketen’s Summer/Spring 2014 lineup is another strong season of extremely well made heritage footwear. With a noticeable sense of humor – they used bagels to help prop up their shoes – and a willingness to experiment, they bring a much needed levity to the crowded field of workwear shoe brands.

Classic Yuketen models like their Ranger Moccasins, which merge traditional Made-in-Maine American moccasins with adventurous materials, and boat shoes, are featured prominently. Beyond these standards, Yuketen is expanding their range of sneakers. New this season is the Sneaker Moccasin, with a lace-to-toe design reminiscent of monkey boots, and featuring a new, custom sole design that’s halfway between a camp sole and a traditional athletic sneaker sole. The sneaker moccasins are benchmade in Mexico, with a surprising amount of handwork for a non-dress shoe.

Yuketen is also expanding their lineup of Hermosa sneakers. Bearing obvious (and acknowledged) similarities to Vans and other plimsols, these sneakers are Made in Italy of high-end Italian leathers with full leather insoles, and again feature a custom-designed, high wear sole.

The collection shows clear influences from the American southwest, with bright lapis lazuli blues and deep, verdant greens. Loafers are decorated with silver medallions inspired by Native American jewelry from the 1930s or bright leather contrasting tassels.

As always, Yuketen is no stranger to exotic materials, and the collection includes shoes in zebra stripe, leopard spots, degraded painted leathers and crocodile.

Are they going to re-issue the Holy Grail Bucks from a few years ago?
