At 10.05am on the 26th of June 2012 I saw the first images of Yuketens newest model, the Hermosa Sneaker, the first sneaker they had ever made. It took me about three minutes to email Ryan at Yuketen and express my excitement. For those who know me know that this shoe ticks as many boxes as it possible could for one single shoe.
Firstly it’s made in Italy, by Yuketens specialist leather artisans, so you know the quality is second to none. Secondly it is a Navy outturned leather, with full leather lining (including foot bed) set off by a beautiful gum sole! Adding to all of this is the fantastic shape of the shoe. It is sleek, yet not too narrow and has a think sole, without being bulky, a tough combination that Yuketen have absolutely nailed. Dress them up or wear them casually, whatever you do, don’t miss out because you will regret it.
