—01. Yuki Matsuda's studio
Yuki Matsuda's passion for quality has allowed his talented team to engineer some of the best handcrafted footwear available. Yuketen's new Fall-Winter collection has slowly been hitting selected retailers worldwide and with the most diverse selection to date, we had the pleasure to sit down with Yuki to discuss their latest collaborations, styles, and inspirations.
• Custom Maine Guide Shoe design
• FO Khaki Suede Leather
• Yuketen for Inventory Items heel stamp
• Custom natural HBT shoe bag
• Black Vibram Christy sole
• 30 pairs made
The Maine Guide Shoe was first introduced to the western market last fall when we collaborated with Yuketen. The time around, our special make-up features a khaki suede upper, natural leather welt and a black Vibram sole. The combination of the light suede, dark sole and chocolate brown laces offers a refreshing take on one of our favorite Yuketen models. Our version, with the heel tab removed, also includes the Yuketen for Inventory Items stamp on the interior, and comes in a natural herringbone twill shoe bag.
—01. All black everything.
It's pretty rare that I like all black shoes. I can probably count on one hand how many pairs I'd actually like to own. When I saw these wingtip Gillie Mocs in Yuketen's Hermosa Beach showroom, I was immediately drawn to them. The grain of the leather, the way the broguing is more subtle in black, and of course the nice touch of the ripple sole top them off very well.
—01. New model for FW11.
Following trend with early fall deliveries, End has received their first shipment of Yuketen FW11 styles. Among them is one of the best new models from Yuketen. The Maine Guide Chukka is a nice mid-height version of their classic Maine Guide styling. The classic Vibram sole is met with similar lines, nice leather and a new upper.
The sun finally came out in Vancouver on the first official day of summer. It's still not entirely hot out however, so a jacket might be good to keep with you, say in your back pack? The colors here feel nice and summery, casual and easy to mix around together. Comfort is definitely key, so whether you need a little added layering, or the hot weather haven of a madras shirt, whatever the climate, you'll be set.
—01. 20-25% off all footwear.
For the next three days all of our footwear is on sale. We've never actually put our shoes or boots on sale before, so this is a rarity. For three days only, you can snag some great shoes from Red Wing, Yuketen, Viberg or Mark McNairy for 20-25% off. The sale will end on Sunday night, and all footwear go back to regular price.

We just had our one-year anniversary of the Inventory Stockroom this past weekend. We decided not to make a fuss about it, but we're still happy to have had a fairly successful first year of brick and mortar retail. We appreciate the support from everybody online, overseas and in Vancouver and look forward to a few more years in Vancouver, and hopefully even somewhere new within the next year or two.
