Yuketen Maine Guide Boot

Aug 10, 2010

To be honest, I'm starting to grow weary of the masses of moccasin and work boot styles that have been flooding the market in recent years, but there's one name that still brings to mind a glimmer of hope. That name is Yuketen. Their beautiful craftmanship, bold styles, and quality materials are what help them to continually stand out from the crowd.

Yuketen Hunting Mocc Boot in Brown

Last fall, I was lucky enough to get my hands on a pair of hunting mocc boots for under $200, but I found the crepe sole to be inconsistent with my style and probably overkill for the snowy sidewalks I casually strolled. This season, Yuketen is much more accessible though their retail prices are still slightly out of my range. However, having felt the suppleness of the leather and deerskin used in their boots, I'm sure they are worth every penny. Let me just say this; I can see why people used to use deerskin condoms back in the day. Their boots are like sex for your feet. Maybe it's the same appeal Ugg boots have on girls. Anyway, the vibram sole is the icing on the Maine Guide boot cake, and with superior leather; these are above and beyond similar boat shoe boot styles from the likes of Quoddy and Sebago.

This month, one of my favorite shops, Très Bien Shop is carrying the Maine Guide boot in three colorways. The price comes in at about $650 before the 20% discount for non EU customers, but that's still a pretty penny. Still, if you want the best of the best, these are your best bet.
