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.

Yuketen Johnson Boot

01

Images

—01. Made in Canada.

Words

Yuketen isn't especially known for their welted shoes, but they have done an exceptional job with these boots. Yuki managed to find a skilled boot maker up north that could deliver just what he was after this fall. The Johnson boot features a nice soft brown leather on a classic Vibram sole. It's not the most iconic Yuketen model, but it's one of my favorites this season.

Yuketen Fall–Winter

01

Images

—01. Maine, USA.

Words

Yuketen have just updated their website with the fall collection and a handful of images from the lookbook. The photographs capture the beauty that is Maine in the winter. Yuki and Ryan make the trip each season to shoot their lookbook in the wilderness, showing the Yuketen products in the environment they're made for. Now also featuring fall garments from Monitaly, my only complaint is that there aren't more of the shots on their website.

Yuketen Fall Delivery

01

—01. Peanut suede Angler Mocs.

Words

Yuketen is definitely one of the brands we are most excited to see each season. The brand and people behind it are great, and the products are always exceptional. We just received our first fall delivery which includes the Melton wool backpack, with natural veggie leather straps and accents. It's a serious bag, made by hand and lined with red canvas with multiple compartments. The first shoe to arrive is the Angler Moccasin in peanut suede - a great shoe that's arguably better than the Ranger Moc. We are looking forward to the arrival of a couple more styles in the coming month, including an INVENTORY/Yuketen collaboration.

Yuketen Spring Items

01

Details

—01. Canvas Canoe Pack & Ring Boots.

Words

Present are the most recent shop to receive a couple of Yuketen’s spring items. The Ring Boots and canvas Canoe pack and a couple of triangle packs are all nice looking spring pieces that haven’t been bought by too many accounts this season. The bags are made with a really nice tough fabric and the veggie tanned leather is the perfect accent.

Yuketen Fisherman Oxford

01

Image

—01. Sturdy and classic.

Words

While the Country series from Yuketen definitely had us excited this spring, the Fisherman Oxford is another great looking, slightly more sturdy model that a couple of shops have picked up. The Bureau still his the tough spring shoe in a couple of sizes and it’s definitely well suited to be a year round choice with the nice Vibram sole.

In Stock: Yuketen Sport Chukka

—01. Hand sewn in the USA.

Words

The Yuketen spring collection has been one of the most anticipated this season - at least in my own mind. There were a lot of great models, leathers and new styles but I felt that the three we choose for the Stockroom made a great little collection. Going with crepe soles across the board, a slight variety of brown leathers and suede and three very strong shoes. The Sport Chukka is the last of the three we ordered for the spring and they just arrived today. As usual, they look even better then I remembered from last summer.

Look: Just Another Day

—01. A couple Stockroom goodies.

Words

Sometimes getting dressed is just as easy as it should be. The staples of spring often work just as well all year round, but they look particularly nice as the weather turns and the lighter tones come together. The socks are left behind and the layers are light and comfortable.
