Yuketen's Maine Guide collection draws inspiration from the early wilderness guides of New England, who in leading European hunters and traders into contact with indigenous North Americans brought about a cultural synthesis most aptly reflected in the boots these guides wore. The close‐fitting, stitched wrappings of pliant leather worn by early natives reflected necessity laid bare by the bitterness of winter and the silent tread of the autumn hunt preceding. Modernization of the West brought lasts, dies and outsoles, applying durability to moccasin comfort. Rendered in a higher profile, the classic 'American' guide boot was born, and it is in tribute to the propulsive spirit of the boot's earliest owners that Yuketen has approached a new frontier in its design.

As one of Yuketen’s most challenging handsewn moccasins, the All Handsewn Maine Guide 6 Eye Boots is a testament to the incomparable capability of Yuketen’s handsewers. Each pair of the boots is handcrafted in our factory in Maine, USA. The boots benefit from their construction using only the best components and materials such as the leopard printed hair‐on cow leather tanned in the U.S. lined with Horween’s soft‐tanned horse hide leather for added comfort.
