These American-Made Shoes Are a Summer Essential

For a great summer shoe in premium leather or suede, pick up a pair of these hand-sewn moccasins or loafers from Yuketen.


Yuketen designer Yuki Matsuda creates heritage-inspired footwear with a twist, elevating styles like the moc-toe work boot or beef-roll loafer to new levels of everyday appeal. The brand’s Maine facility partners with material suppliers like Horween Leather in Chicago to ensure that every hand-stitched shoe to leave the factory is worth the investment.

Yuketen may be known for its sturdy boots and chukkas, but for the warm weather heading your way, you’re probably looking for something that will let your feet breathe. Luckily the brand also produces hand-sewn loafers and moccasins, and you can find six good-looking styles right now at Huckberry. Pick up a pair now that will last for many summers to come, while every size is still present and accounted for.
