Yuketen was founded in 1989 by designer Yuki Matsuda. One of Matsuda’s primary driving forces behind the brand is to utilize and preserve traditional cordwaining techniques while marrying them with modern, progressive designs. The results are shoes unlike anything else on the market. Every pair of Yuketen shoes is made with carefully thought out design, unmatched craftsmanship, and a global perspective. In the words of Yuketen, “May you enjoy the fruits of our labor, wherever your journey takes you.”
