Ekn Yew Camel Suede
This is our take on a burly dad-shoe aesthetic. The new YEW model sports a stripped-back upper that debuted in a camel and white colorway. Designed by David Mawdsley the shoe sports a premium vegetable tanned leather and recycled neoprene upper, completed by a light but chunky and cloudy vibram sole unit. This model features removable insole and comes with two pairs of shoe laces.
Ekn footwear was founded as a viable alternative for a global footwear industry flooded with poorly fabricated synthetic shoes, harmful both to the environment and the people involved – fabrication workers and consumers. Therefore Ekn are not afraid to take responsibility for everyone involved in the process and experience of making, shipping and wearing our products. Each shoe is handmade by experienced Portuguese craftsmen, using biological materials - vegetable tanned lather, organic cotton, and recycled rubber - from the highest quality suppliers. There are zero harmful chemicals used in manufacturing process. Every style is produced in limited quantities to ensure minimal environmental impact and maximum attention to detail.
