All Handsewn Sneaker Moc High is a joyful leap in footwear design, bringing together the pliant comfort of the genuine moccasin and the subtle aestheticism of the iconic 1970s tennis shoe.

As one of Yuketen’s most challenging handsewn moccasins, the All Handsewn Sneaker Moc Ox is a testament to the incomparable capability of Yuketen’s handsewers. Each pair of the boots is handcrafted in our factory in Maine, USA. The boots benefit from their construction using only the best components and materials such as a combination of the Horween’s soft tempered naked baseball glove leather and the soft and silky full-grain flesh-out leather from Opera Leather from Tuscany, Italy who have been specialized in making flesh-out leather and suede since the 70s. The leather is described as ‘flesh-out’ as it is full-grain leather that is flipped so that the flesh side of the leather faces outwards. The advantages of using full grain, flesh-out leather rather than split suede leathers are two fold; full grain leathers retain their structure, thickness and durability for long-lasting strength and the smooth grain side of the leather wears pleasantly against the skin, negating the need for additional liners. This way, the wearer enjoys the benefits of full grain leather and the pleasant aesthetic of the nappy, suede-like flesh side of the leather. The baseball leather is the very same utilized by top U.S. baseball glove manufacturers, carrying a full, "natural" color and remarkably soft texture. Baseball Glove leather is “naked leather”, meaning the grain surface is untreated and therefore quick to achieve a rich patina.

To closely mirror the incongruence of the human foot and deliver a molded fit, multiple pieces of leather are hand-sewn and hand-lasted on Yuketen’s proprietary last, which was developed in the 1950s and was known as the best shoe last for an American-made moccasin. In addition, the base of the vamp has been cinched to further ensure an integumentary fit.

A Vibram’s oil-resisting morflex sole complements the dense eight layers of rubber and leather underfoot. Full vegetable-tanned leather insoles and midsoles, and tucks with 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 which causes weight to be distributed more evenly across the foot. This results in reduced foot fatigue and improved comfort. Yuketen’s signature tucks are made from 100% vegetable-tanned leather and will naturally accommodate the distinct shape of the wearer’s foot over time.
