Regarded as being very comfortable, these hand-welted monks have a leather suede upper from the notable British tannery, C.F. Stead. The details matter and, in this case, the two straps have been finely shaped to accent the last.

Yearn are noted for their handmaking techniques.

Hand-welted Construction

Hand-stitched Outsoles

Y07 Last

  • Not one, but two straps

    These pair of Monks have a classic two buckle strap design, which complement the look of Yearn's Y07 last.

  • Hand-welted Construction

    In contrast to Goodyear or cement welting, hand-welting is a labour intensive process that results in a lighter and more comfortable shoe. The uppers are held on the last for an average of three full days.

  • Bark-tanned Soles

    As a standard feature, all Yearn shoes have a single-piece Italian leather sole that have been bark-tanned. Every outsole is also hand-stitched, which extends the life of the shoe by increasing the number of possible resoles.
