John Lofgren Bootmaker's Steel Gang SW (Storm Welt) Boots pay homage to the resilient men who laid railroad tracks in the logging industry. These boots are robustly constructed, providing both protection and durability. True to the essence of all John Lofgren Bootmaker footwear, comfort is a top priority. The JLB Steel Gang SW boots showcase a timeless early 20th-century design that transcends trends. Crafted by highly skilled craftsmen and women in Japan, every pair of John Lofgren Bootmaker footwear exemplifies quality.
The uppers are crafted from one of Tuscany's finest leathers, the iconic Pueblo leather from Badalassi Carlo, boasting a beautiful bone color. This extra-thick 1.6 cowhide is purely vegetable-tanned, showcasing a uniquely rustic appearance. While the leather initially has a slightly rough feel, it naturally evolves into a silky smooth texture with a distinctive patina over time. The renowned Carlo Badalassi tannery employs traditional methods of vegetable tanning, using tree barks with a history spanning centuries. Their commitment to these time-honored practices is underscored by their membership in the exclusive Pelle Vegetale Consortium, certifying adherence to strict traditional vegetal tanning methods.
John Lofgren Steel Gang Boots are available in a single E width. This last runs large and we recommend sizing down one full size from your standard US sneaker size or Brannock measurement. If you have wide feet, consider going down half a size. They fit similar to Viberg service boots (Lofgren Combat boots size US9 = Viberg 9).
John Lofgren Bootmaker, founded by California native John Lofgren in Japan, seamlessly blends vintage-inspired designs with contemporary fits and superior materials.
