Yuketen Suede Sneakers

Recently released at Florence’s favorite fashion festival – Pitti Uomo – is a sneaker from long-standing Maine leather stalwart Yuketen. Yuketen has long (since 1985) been making leather shoes of the finest variety, becoming a standout in somewhat of a crowded market. Having Yuki Matsuda at the helm has given Yuketen an advantage few other companies can lay claim to. It appears now that Yuki has turned his eye to the sneaker market. His lead-off effort is a suede sneaker with leather lacing. As I’m sadly not at Pitti myself and they haven’t been given a proper release yet I can’t say a whole lot more about them, but they seem like a product well worth following to market – I know I’ll be watching them closely and I’m sure they’ll make another appearance here closer to release.
