Set up by Yuki Matsuda back in 1995, then overseas brand Yuketen moved their operations to America in order to work with true footwear Artisans. Together they produced the Moccasin hunting boot, inspired by 1930’s mountain men, designed to be silent whilst tracking wild animals. For Fall/Winter 2009, Yuketen work up two new renditions, each made in the traditional moccasin way, using American hides, which wrap your foot, not just cover it. The sole unit is made from real crepe, which is of course, 100% natural rubber from Brazil and takes about 4 hours to hand sew to the upper. Both a Sports Hunt Peanut Suede and the Sports Hunt Grain Brown are now available through select Yuketen retailers including OiPolloi.
