Yuketen designer and founder Yuki Matsuda has designed quite a few shoes since the brand's inception in 1985. And though it's been almost 30 years, Yuketen still churns out some of the best looking and expertly crafted footwear out there. Case in point: The Eric boot.
The boot is a fairly straightforward design, but done so elegantly with a scotch grain upper which is fully lined with soft-tanned cow leather. You also get a substantial cork and vegetable-tanned leather outsole, all-around Goodyear welt construction, and each pair is hand-stitched and benchmade, just like it should be.
