    I live in Canada, not the US. Are you somehow associated with the Yuketen supply chain in the US---is that why you keep shilling for them as well? Please tell me where I can find Yuketen in Eastern Canada...other than the Holt Renfrew Last call....I am not going there ever again! I find it impossible to believe that a fashion label can consider itself leading edge, and is not stocked in Toronto or Montreal....
    canada retailers: gravity pope inventory lark + there are ~ 20 on-line retailers.

    I'll check again and see but I emailed William at Context and he said "To my knowledge Yuketen doesn't make an E width, at least not that I've seen."


    nope, they most certainly make e widths. ask for sam or ryan next time ... although i think they only ordered d width with this order.

    Yo.....where can I find them? If you have such a shoe, can you post a (non-doctored) photo?

    This is coming from someone who has had my own problems with Whatever123 in the past...having watched the two of you go at it on here I have now come to the conclusion you are actually retarded. + 1 to Whatever. A.L.Z, you are one silly dude.

    If I must go into it, every Yuketen I own is E width. Two of my pairs came from Barneys, one from Opening Ceremony, one from Blackbird, one from Colette. In fact, go to any of those web retailers and look at the interior shots of the shoes. Though, Barneys latest might be D width (last season they were E)

    One pair I own, for example. http://www.openingceremony.us/produc...roductid=26738

    haven't tried any of the 3 but looking to make a purchase very soon. Thinking of going with oak street cause of relatively better pricing and positive reviews of quality.

    Question: what would you recommend for someone with a wide foot but without a really wide heel. As in i need an E for the middle and balls of my feet but don't want the heel to be too loose.

    hr does not carry them anymore. they havent since last season.

    canada retailers:

    gravity pope
    inventory
    lark

    + there are ~ 20 on-line retailers.

    your welcome.


    those are in western canada. i dont buy shoes unless i look at them first, in person. where can i find them in Eastern Canada? I think i already asked this to you, but you keep redirecting me to gravity pope....which has the worst online purchase return policy in the world adn i will not do buisness with them.

    they were in the holt renfrew last call this past february...when i went there after you praised those shoes....and they were the most disgusitng leather i saw, salt encrusted and feeling like sandpaper.

    Now I know you are just a troll. Either that or extremely stupid. I don't give a fuck if they don't have E widths in eastern Canada...the point is they make them and they are pretty ubiquitous for the company.

    Sir, I just asked a simple question: a. Where can I find Yuketens in Eastern Canada? Where I can physically try on the shoes, and bask in this fabled leather and this inimitable construction? Every reputable brand is available in Toornto or Montreal... b. I haven't seen any E-width Yuketens on even any of the online retailers right now. Can you direct me to a current shoe, that is available for immediate purchase? This is a simple question, and I really see no need for such vulgar invective or personal attacks.

    In my question above, in part (b), part of which you are quoting above, I was referring to E-width yuketens. i know yuketen is availablle online...you keep directing me to gravitypope.

    you should be okay in yuketen e widths in most styles. oak street has a wider width option as well but you might need to confirm that with them. quoddy makes several widths but you will most likely have to order from them and that can take anywhere from 2 - 6 months.

    i meant various width options, not heel. actually, if you need something really customized russell moc might be a good option for you as well. those guys can do anything with sizing. they have some really cool stuff and they do a single, double and triple vamp shoe. they are about 5 or 6 months out as they are extremely popular right now. their website sucks but they will send you a catalog (you have to request it) that has some great pics in it. the judy boot and some of the thula thula stuff are my favorites. http://www.russellmoccasin.com/
