Inspired by traditional American footwear but updated according to a sharp, modern aesthetic, designer Yuki Matsuda's Yuketen collection for fall showcases shoes that are classically robust but also playfully contemporary. Employing materials that are as high quality as they are authentic, each pair truly exudes enduring style.

With a deep, well-researched appreciation of traditional American shoemaking, Yuki Matsuda creates immediately familiar yet uniquely modern footwear with an array of authentic textiles. Enlisting the most experienced, capable hands to carefully craft each pair, Matsuda sees the entire process through--from conception to reality. Prominently influenced by historic Native American detailing, Yuketen often showcases a playful, contemporary take on the moccasin or chukka boot each season.
