I’m not ‘into’ most of the Yuketen styles to date, I don’t really know why but they remind me of either eskimos or lads dressed like they are Urban Fishing! Any how LN-CC have produced a pair that has changed me. They are made from black leather and feature brogue detailing. The uppers are hand stitched to a black, ‘Vibram’ wedge sole. The boots are finished with a hand stitched leather insole embossed with the Yuketen logo. Buy em out here

Yuketen Spring Summer 2011

A name that requires no introduction, Yuki Matsuda’s Yuketen are one of the most respected names around at the moment – and for good reason. The time and effort that goes into the creation of every shoe is unequalled, Yuki has travelled the length and breath of the US, studying the designs and processes that hallmark classic American footwear.

Using only the finest leathers, each handmade pair of shoes is an interpretation of a footwear style that holds huge importance in American culture. From hunt boots inspired by native American moccasins to the boat shoes worn throughout the Eastern Seaboard, Yuketen’s network of carefully selected artisan manufacturers expertly create each pair to exacting standards, drawing on generations of experience.
