If you're lucky enough to own a pair or cruised the blogosphere, you've probably drooled over Yuketen's wildly awesome boots and shoes. Brand founder Yuki Matsuda has been hand-making footwear since 1985, and has unparalleled patience and skill that he injects into every stitch and welt.
The master craftsman is featured in a short video that shows him looking over hides and intently putting waxed threads through a shoe's heel. Matsuda shows his balance between conservative, well-made footwear and the most outlandish ideas that continue to push menswear and footwear in a new direction. Matsuda lives by the motto: "Every stitch has a soul," and his life and vibe has been translated through his work.
With boot season upon us, take a look at the video above, and get ready to lace-up something new this fall.
