John Lofgren is a California native, a long time resident of Japan and the creative mind behind the brand John Lofgren Bootmaker. When Lofgren first ventured into a thrift store in the early 1980s, he quickly felt a deep connection with the style and quality of another time when substance and tradition were considered important. The brand John Lofgren Bootmaker embodies exactly these values. It's about shoes for customers who understand the difference between fashion and style and who care about quality and integrity. Classic and durable boots - handmade in Japan.
