Yuketen’s early notoriety owed much to their resuscitation of the ranger moccasin style. A classic, masculine design blending moccasin and blucher and made popular in the 1950’s, the ranger moccasin was long-overlooked prior to its reinterpretation and reintroduction by Yuketen. Keeping with a philosophy that seeks to push the evolution of footwear design and construction toward higher standards of excellence, Yuketen has continued to improve upon the fundamental structure of this popular silhouette, while preserving it's New England heritage.
Presented in a blucher profile, the English Moc Ranger brings together the most advanced methods in hand and machine shoe construction. Each shoe is hand-crafted from select cuts of full-grain leather. Following the genuine handsewn construction of our moccasins, awl, needle and thread are used to handstitch the shoe's tip to the vamp leather, which cradles the foot. The heel is then machine-lasted, the resultant upper resting atop eight-layers of stacked midsole components and a Vibram ripple outsole.
