Yuketen Blucher Rocker with Kiltie
Each shoe is hand-stitched in our Maine factory using a three-dimensional pattern. To closely mirror the incongruence of the human foot and deliver a molded fit, seven asymmetrical pieces of leather are hand-punched and hand-sewn with awl, needle, and thread on Yuketen’s proprietary last. The result is that the 'blucher' pieces (separate leather pieces sewn to the vamp for lacing) are asymmetrical, and contour more accurately to the wearer's foot during lacing. The base of the vamp has been cinched to further ensure an integumentary fit.
Full-leather insoles, leather tucks, and steel shank reinforcements increase fitting in the arch and heel as well as lessen foot fatigue by forming a stable bridge between the heel and ball of the owner's foot. Our Yuketen signature tucks are made from 100% vegetable-tanned leather and will naturally accommodate the distinct shape of the wearer.
The rocker outsole present on this shoe was once used for orthopedic patients in need of soft and forgiving outsoles. Repurposed for Yuketen footwear, the combination of EVA foam and crepe rubber result in a supremely comfortable outsole, upon which a full vegetable-tanned leather midsole sits.
The Blucher Rocker with Kiltie, available exclusively from Yuketen, combines contemporary outsole components with heritage moccasin construction for informal, urban elegance.
