LTG’S FAVORITE SUMMER SHOES 2013 | THE BIRKENSTOCK & YUKETEN SUEDE TRIO

since days it is summer in germany. real summer. everyday about 25 – 30 °C with nice winds, really comfortable and smooth. beside the YUKETEN ANGLER MOCs i prefer wearing my BIRKENSTOCKS. love the brown suede colored lightweight leather and the white soles. 3 days are left before going on summer holidays to spain … work is still stressing … pics | LTG


LTG’S HOT SUMMER WEAR FOR TODAY

okay, now it’s just 8:00 o’clock in the morning and the thermometer shows 27°C here at middle germany near frankfurt. the weather forecast told us that there will be about 37–40° in the afternoon. so, this is a day to wear short chinos, a hawaii shirt and some boat shoes. sorry, but i hope it will get colder the next days because as a middle european it is 10 degrees too hot for me while working. pics | LTG

YUKETEN @ VOLLS.DE | PERFECT SUMMER FOOTWEAR

yesterday i visited KLAUS c/o volls.de. it was time to pick up some stuff which was reserved for me since weeks. there wasn’t any time before: because of working, working and working … when i entered the shop i saw a line of new YUKETEN shoes and boots. wonderful, timeless classics: different styles and color-ways of MAINE GUIDE CHUKKAS and ANGLER MOCS. my favorite is the suede chestnut brown ANGLER MOC HEX EYE. for me a hybrid between a classic oxford and a boat-shoe – great look! for more information about the new stuff enter the YUKETEN site @ volls.de. i never slipped into a boot without socks and felt so comfortable as in the ANGLER MOC. i told you: an absolute perfect summer shoe. pics | volls.de, LTG


BOOT OF THE DAY | #150 | YUKETEN PLAIN TOE UTILITY BOOTS

volls.de got a new delivery from YUKETEN. some new boots and very nice bags. there is a new boot i never saw before: the PLAIN TOE UTILITY BOOT in moss suede with a white contrast heel cap. a great color combination which is completed by one of my favorite VIBRAM soles: the # 2021 in grey brown. beside the suede version of this UTILITY BOOT there is another boot in a chestnut brown smooth leather also with the #2021 sole. this boot looks a bit smarter and classic. pics | volls.de

YUKETEN & ALDEN | @ VOLLS.DE

last friday between OLLI THE BARBER and another photo shooting i went to KLAUS to pick up a rain jacket that works from ARC’TERYX VEILANCE. so i just could take some impressions of the new ALDEN & YUKETEN stuff KLAUS got a day before. the complete stuff is really awesome from the mocs over the main guide boots, the blucher and indie styles over to the leather bags. it will took some time to bring the stuff to the online shop, KLAUS said because today the order marathon starts for him with the PITTI UOMO at FIRENCE, italy. if you can’t wait for the stuff to order online, contact him and his staff at volls.de. bad pics | LTG

BOOT OF THE DAY | #103 | Red Wing Shoes CRAZY PATTERN

damn, what’s that? these shoes only could be found on a japanese website. there are other great SHOE REPAIR artisans called SILVER-SILVER. at this place i found these really crazy patterned RED WING moc shape of the iconic 875. made from a mix of differnet style colors. the leathers seem to be original RED WING ones. it looks really eye catching. but the idea is not new. YUKETEN did some shoes last summer called “mismatch”. i had a pair but i didn’t like them really. after wearing 3 times i sold them … pics | CREA, japan
