Leather Notes
Horween CXL - Oka Black is a tea-core leather - dyed brown, with a black topcoat - this leather will fade to dark brown in high wear areas. It's the same Black CXL used on regular stock John Lofgren boots.

Horween CXL - Shin Black - this leather is dyed black all the way to the core of the leather - it will fade to a dark charcoal color in high wear areas, but the black color can be restored with any quality colored boot polish

If you want the absolute best in engineer boots, this is it. John Lofgren debuted these 5 years ago, and every run has sold out as fast as he could produce them.

Every great pair of footwear begins with a good last, and these start from a custom made last designed by John to give a 1950's silhouette to the boot (no toe bump, with a nice taper to the shape). Wrapped around that last is black Horween Chromexcel, tanned in the USA. 

The rest of the construction details are on par with that fantastic leather - Japanese steel shanks, British Goodyear welting, and brass-coated steel buckles made in Tokyo. Even the labels are made on shuttle looms.

All of this goodness is pulled together and turned into boots at one of the best footwear factories in Japan.

If you want to go really in-depth - check out what John at Vintage Engineer Boot's has to say about them.

These fit true to your size in the Red Wing Heritage Iron Ranger or Alden Barrie last. We recommend choosing 0.5 size larger than your John Lofgren Donkey Puncher, Combat Boot or M-43 boot size.
