Yuketen Johnson Ox Black
NOK 5.999,00 kr
Yuketen’s Johnson Oxford is a low-cut variation on Yuketen’s take on the classic Boondocker boot, reinterpreted through Yuki Matsuda’s design perspective. A cap toe with subtle perforation detailing in addition to the ever popular Vibram Christy sole bring this military classic into contemporary style and practicality.
Each shoe is Goodyear-welted in Canada with classic American machinery. The upper is crafted from rich and malleable pull-up leathers, resulting in wonderful contrasts and patinas over time. The updated shape of the Johnson originates from the mil-spec last used for this model that is specifically designed for army infantry to guarantee long-wearing comfort. Natural leather insoles ensure conformity to the shape of the wearer’s foot for long-term comfort in addition to a Vibram Christy sole for shock absorption and cushion. The Johnson also boasts a natural leather welt and leather laces to complete the outward statement of high-quality materials and construction.
The quality components and classic details that make up the Johnson Oxford are intrinsic elements of Yuketen shoes that reiterate Yuketen’s commitment to unique and fulfilling footwear.

How it's made
Each shoe is hand-stitches in Yuketen's Maine factory using a three-dimensional pattern. To closely mirror the incongruence of the human foot and deliver a molded fit, seven asymmetrical pieces of leather are hand-punched and hand-sewn with awl, needle, and thread on Yuketen's proprietary last. The result is that the "blucher" pieces are asymmetrical, and contour more accurately to the wearer's foot during lacing. The base of the vamp has been cinched to further ensure an integumentary fit.
Love & Care
Light cleaning: Use warm water and soft bristle brush to remove stuck-on dirt. Then use a clean, dry cloth to wipe away any remaining excess dirt.
Deep cleaning: For heavily soiled areas, use a clean cloth or brush to apply any leather cleaner. Wipe the cleaner away with a damp cloth and allow the leather to dry.
Proper conditioning helps preserve the finish and life of your footwear. Use a natural oil or natural leather conditioner. You can apply these conditioners with your fingers, a soft cloth or sponge.
Add extra protection to preserve your footwear. Use a Leather Protector to provide an invisible shield from water, dirt, oil and mud.
SIZING GUIDE: This shoe fits larger than Yuketen moccasin footwear. It is strongly recommended that you purchase the shoe one half-size smaller than the size you normally wear in Yuketen moccasin footwear.
A new pair of Yuketen should fit comfortably tight on your foot, with enough room to freely wiggle your toes. Over time the full grain leather upper, leather footboard and cork midsole mold to your feet, creating an enduring and customized fit over time with each wear.
