These John Lofgren Bootmaker M-43 Service Shoes in Shinki Hikaku Olive are downright crazy. Not only are they handmade by expert craftsmen in Japan with all the right details, but they’re cut from some of the most mind-bending-ly textured olive Shinki Hikaku Horsehide leather that we’ve ever seen. And we’ve seen a lot of leather boots.
Japan’s Shinki tannery is putting out some of the best tanned horsehide in the world, and for John Lofgren to put them on some boots means business, ’cause Shinki ain’t cheap. Despite the high price tag, we can all agree that these are drool-worthy in their craftsmanship and features, and they give us a boot to aspire to.
Details on these shinki-housed M-43 Service Boots include: John Lofgren’s sleek and narrow Munson last, single/double/triple/and quadruple stitched seams, Japanese steel shanks, Vibram 700 cork soles, Vibram 7335 cork heels, and Goodyear welt construction so they’ll keep on kicking even when you’re gone.
