Yuketen Wingtip Gillie



—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.

These remind me of some spacecraft I saw in Star Wars, I just can't quite put my finger on it.

Hideous-----and this is from someone who generally likes Yuketens output.Wish they'd stop the onslaught of white vibram soles----which are totally passe' now.Printable Ryan old fruit?!!!

That's funny Ryan. I am the exact opposite. I have four pairs of all-black leather shoes, and am always instantly drawn to all-black shoes first (except for maybe Loden Green). These mocs are magnificent looking.

These are as cool as fuck. I could do without the broguing on the toe, but otherwise epic. The only word I can think of is 'badass'.

ripple sole looks like its aimed squarely at some kind of special needs orthopedic market. seriously these look beyond ridiculous.

when I was a teenager they called these numbers 'brothel creepers'.

I think Ryan lost touch. Most of the stuff he posts here is ridiculous, especially the footwear. Supreme fanboy back in the hizzay, methinks.

They look like barbecued alligators.

it's a crazy design and it's nice that yuketen build a sample of these for their showroom but I doubt that a buyer will ever get these. It's plain unsellable, specially at Yuketen's prices
