These are John Lofgren's take on the Eastern European (primarily Czech) surplus boots favored by mods (and then skins). The actual origin of the name "Monkey Boot" is lost to history, but the prevalent opinion is that the tractor-tire-tread soles of the Czech boots offered enough grip to climb like a monkey.
As with all of John Lofgren's boots, these were developed slowly and carefully from last to leather. The uppers are Horween Cavalier leather in Whiskey, with Japanese made hardware, and Vibram's 705 sole / 700 heel combination from the USA.
Horween's Cavalier leather is a similar tannage to Horween's famous Chromexcel leather without glazing, but with the same pull-up and soft-break in as Chromexcel. The hardware in made in Japan and the Vibram soles come from the USA.
We reference Brannock sizing for our footwear. The Brannock Device is the standard foot measuring tool for the world's footwear industry. Most better quality footwear stores will have one.
