These are named for the folks who operated "steam donkeys", steam-driven winches used in logging at the end of the 19th century. The operators were known as "donkey punchers". 

Nomenclature aside, when John Lofgren sets out to build a pair of boots, he builds the most comfortable, highest quality boot he can. All of the work is done in Japan from start to finish, using Horween leather, Vibram soles, and John's own custom last.

These run quite large, take a full size down from your size in the Red Wing Heritage Iron Ranger or Alden Barrie last; one half-size down from your size in the Alden TruBalance last.

  • 6" lace-to-toe boot
  • Goodyear welted
  • Exclusive John Lofgren last
  • Burgundy Horween leather
  • Japanese horsehide lining 
  • Vibram 705 sole + 700 heel combination
  • American-made brass eyelets and speedhooks
  • Stacked logger heel
