JOHN LOFGREN BOOTMAKER
HORWEEN LEATHER CXL
MADE IN JAPAN
Ezo Shika are Japanese deer that live in Japan's northern Hokkaido region. Larger than all other Shika subspecies, this deer lives an extra rugged life in mostly snowy areas. For centuries the indigenous Ainu people have hunted them as a major food source and armorers incorporated the robust deerskin into samurai armor. Today deerskin can still be found being used in making kendo and kyudo bogu.
It is also a representative presence that can be said to be a masterpiece when talking about the John Lofgren brand.
The style is based on the design of engineer boots from the 1930-1940s, and Japanese craftsmen who have trained for many years have condensed traditional techniques into their works to create a sturdy and high-quality finish.
■ The material uses the finest Chromexcel leather (oil leather with aniline finish, leather thickness = 2.0-2.3mm) from the long-established American leather maker HORWEEN.
The feature is that the leather is hard to break even if you wear it and it is soft.
■ The sole is made by VIBRAM, a global manufacturer, and has excellent durability.
■ The buckle uses the brand original steel roller buckle.It has been given an antique brass finish and is made from scratch so that it fits more into the leather.
