The John Lofgren Donkey Punchers are John's take on the classic American Logger Boot. Built for work and of course play they are very versatile in purpose and style.

As with the Engineer Boots the original lasts used are very stylish, have a nice shapely slim waist (instep area) with a sleek rounded toe. They are quite a volumous boot inside with plenty of room for the toe's and thicker socks but still manage to retain a very balanced and non cumbersome profile which is complimented nicely by the woodsman heel. The contrast stitching adds a great touch, particularly with the burgundy leather making them overall, again, a very well executed and thought out boot.

The construction is superb! The stitching, as carried out by the fastidious artisans of Japan, is very neat and uniform, the heel well balanced against the whole boot and is elegantly shaped. The overall finish (including the sole trim) is very nicely done and considering the materials and amount of heavy leather and components used, the weight is suprisingly light, making them very comfortable for all day wear.

 

It can be quite difficult to decide your correct size when ordering shoes & boots online, particularly when they are sized and made in different countries. Please use the information below to help guide you in your choice:

  • The Donkey Punchers fit very similar to UK sizes. They are volumous/ roomy particularly in the front of foot height area. For comparison a Donkey Puncher size 8 is similar to Viberg 8 (2030 and 2045 last), White's 8-8.5D, Truman 8.5, Trickers (and majority of British brands) 8G/F and Red Wing 9US (8UK) - they will just feel a bit more supple and roomy around the lace area, good for thicker socks.

 

  • Please contact me: team@eastwestapparel.co.uk with any sizing questions you may have. I will do my best to assist you in as much depth as I can to get your sizing right. I have experience with a number of UK, European and USA made branded shoes/ boots to help with comparisons and can take any measurements you may need.

Resole and Rebuild:

John Lofgren boots, soles and heels are very hardwearing but there will come a time when they need replacing. They are Goodyear welted which means they can be resoled and heeled a good few times before the welt needs to be replaced, ensuring years of wear. There are a number of shoe/ boot repairers in the UK and Europe that can resole Goodyear welted shoes/ boots to a very high standard.
