The Short Pull-On Boot from Yuketen is a tradtional light trekking boot that takes inspiration from the early wilderness guides of New England. They blended the classic moccasin patterns of Native Americans with traditional European cordwaining techniques to create a boot that was warm, comfortable, and able to stand up to the harsh conditions of the Northeast.
Like all of Yuketen's moccasin-style footwear, these boots are hand-sewn and hand-lasted using multiple pieces of leather to ensure a shoe that has an incredibly comfortable and molded fit. A full leather insole sits above Yuketen’s distinctive midsole, ten layers of rubber and leather that is air-dried in a 90 day long process. A steel shank is used to create a stable bridge between the arch and the heel. This creates an ergonomic shape that distributes weight evenly across the foot, for improved comfort and reduced foot-fatigue. Finally, a replaceable, oil resisting soft Vibram 2021 sole is used to finish these incredibly well constructed, long-lasting shoes with unmatched comfort.
