A long time resident of Japan, Californian John Lofgren is the driving force behind one of the world’ leading boot brands, John Lofgren & Co.
John’s obsession with creating the very best boots led him to Japan where he creates boots on his custom last, with unparalleled attention to detail, comfort, and construction.
John Lofgren has created a variety of classic military-inspired boots, including Combat Boots, Chukka Boots and Desert Boots.
The team behind the brand is flying into the US from Japan, in an MTO event that will allow fans of the label to design and build their own custom boots.
After making an appointment, customers will have a private consultation on the design.
Special leather options will be available at the event, where leather, hardware and other options can be customized to customers’ exact requirements.
There will be an additional fee of $200 per pair for MTO, and a $100 per pair fee for special sizing. The event is going to be held on Saturday the 20th and Sunday the 21st. The below gallery features some of military-inspired boots from the John Lofgren collection.
