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.
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.
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.
