Yuketen–the Yuki Matsuda-helmed label–is emphasized with its approach to handcrafted footwear. Placing emphasis on artisanal production methods, the brand is dedicated to bringing out unique and high-quality shoes to the forefront.
Yuketen’s stylish and comfort-focused Spring/Summer 2020 collection of handcrafted footwear embraces numerous traditional American silhouettes and gives them an artisanal spin. This includes popular models like moccasins, chukkas, loafers, low-cut Western dress shoes, and worker boots. Some of the options that are available prove to be more daring than others. For example, Yuketen calls attention to a woven moccasin that features leather straps and subtle denim accents.
Each piece of handcrafted footwear takes about 96 to 120 hours to complete and the production centers are based in Maine.
