The fundamental components for this style are rich and malleable full grain cow leather uppers lined with soft-tanned cow leather for added comfort and a foundation that is constructed of a combination of vegetable-tanned leather midsoles and the Vibram’s USA made Cristy sole, which provides high shock absorbing with great surface traction for higher grip performance.
Yuketen’s meticulous Goodyear stitches are made by a sturdy 1910 German-made welt stitcher and the Christy outsole - an allusion to 1970s work boots - is directly attached to the shoe's 100% veg-tan midsole, complementing the multiple layers of rubber, natural cork cushioning, and leather underfoot. Full-grain natural leather welt is Goodyear stitched to 100% vegetable-tanned leather insoles to create the sturdy bond of craftsmanship for which Goodyear welted shoes are famous.
These remarkable features mark a new direction for Yuketen’s design aesthetic verging toward formal elegance while simultaneously maintaining all core principles and construction techniques for highest-quality handmade products.
