Yuketen Johnson Oxford

01

Images

—01. Made in Canada.

Words

The soon-to-be classic Yuketen Johnson boot comes back in its spring form. The low cut shoe retains its rugged look and feel, beautiful lined leather and nice silhouette. The touch of formality on the toe is perhaps more suited to a low cut shoe. It continues to have a nice balance of rough and dress, while being one of the most comfortable shoes with a Goodyear welt.

Yuketen Spring Collection

—01. Yuketen Spring stockists.

Words

A couple times during the year we get a delivery of some of the best shoes in the world. These three styles are just tough to top and I think it's safe to say we're fans of the crepe sole and the beautiful hand-sewn moccasin construction. Each shoe offers a little something different, but all four are best in class. I am personally having a very difficult debate between the Country Loafer and the Sport Chukka.

These models are now available at Inventory Stockroom

New Mexico, Part Two

—01. Yuki getting ready to hit the road.

Words

As promised, here is the second batch of images from my recent trip to New Mexico. These ones have a bit more of a look at some of the weaving shops we went to, as well as one of the most amazing general stores in all of New Mexico. Although some of these shots aren't too bad, I just saw some of the film shot by Nicholas Haggard and really can't wait to see it printed in the upcoming issue of Inventory - due out in April.

New Mexico, Part One

01

Images

—01. Yuki and Nick in the desert.

Words

Last month I spent a few days traveling the dusty roads of New Mexico with Yuki and Ryan from Yuketen. We had spoken about the region early last year and about how Yuki used to go there searching for Native American jewlery and for the specialty woven goods. It had been a while since Yuki had gone, so we thought it would be fun to tag along on the trip. We also had Nicholas Haggard come along to take some photos and document the trip for our upcoming issue of Inventory. I had never been to New Mexico, and with some great luck and an experienced tour guide, we had an amazing trip. I'll put up another batch of images shortly, but the real goodies will be coming later in the spring.

Yuketen & Nigel Cabourn

—01. Army green Ventile and leather.

Words

Two of our good friends have linked up again for a special product. The Army Gym is one of the best shops in Tokyo, and its not surprising to see that Yuki and Nigel have teamed up on another pair of Hunt boots, this time using a military Ventile fabric to accent the brown leather and crepe soles.

Yuketen Suede Angler Moc

01

Images

—01. Features a Vibram sole, ideal for the fall.

Words

While I'm still overly excited about our Maine Guide shoes, I have to admit that these suede Anlger Mocs on the Vibram Christie sole look really good as well. I am feeling like the Angler might be one of my favorite models from Yuketen, especially for low cut moccasins. The Vibram sole, rather than the crepe, looks really nice and is ideal for the fall weather ahead. The shoe is just plain great looking and very well made.

Available at the The Bureau

Words

In the last year we've worked on a handful of collaborations that have all been interesting and exciting, but one of the companies we've really come to love and respect is Yuketen. It's been great to work with Yuki and Ryan, and also get to know them on a personal level, so creating a custom shoe together has been an incredible honor. Yuketen don't sell their products to many retailers, let alone do collaborative projects, so it's a very special one for us. Playing with one of their classic models, the Maine Guide Boot, we decided to bring back its unknown and basically unseen shorter brother, the Maine Guide Shoe. Using a waterproof leather, adjusting the height and taking off the heel loop, we came up with our perfect fall moccasin. They're sturdy and tough, but the leather is soft and functional. They are one of the best shoes I've ever owned and I couldn't be more excited about how they came out - thanks to Yuki, Ryan and the whole Meg Company team.
