It’s hard to beat the quality of the Steadfast Chukka Boot from John Lofgren. Made in Japan, the style features Goodyear-welt construction, American Vibram soles and French calf leather that was tanned in Japan. The interior is lined with leather and includes a rough-out heel-cup for added support. Available in sizes 6 to 12, the Steadfast Chukka is sized similarly to a Red Wing Heritage Iron Ranger. And though the $685 may make some wince, it reflects the quality construction and durability of the boot — you’ll be able to wear it and rebuild it for years to come.
