What Yuketen don’t know about hand-finished leather shoes isn’t worth knowing. If ever a footwear company could be classed a safe bet it’s Yuki Matsuda and Co. What is so refreshing about the brand is its willingness to take risks. They could churn out tough moccasins and chunky soled boat shoes season after season whilst comfortably retaining their stellar reputation. However they opt to take a few risks each outing alongside those returning classics. Risky colourways, off-beat shapes, snakeskin and some controversial use of brogueing here and there. Fair play.
