    Maybe via Self Edge, if you go into store and ask them to add some boots to their order? They're stocking shirts and caps from the Lofgren collection these days.

    That said, John ships globally via Rakuten or by orders placed directly over email, so you should be able to order a pair of boots fairly easily, I'd think.

    Lofgren is very easy to deal with direct as opposed to going through Rakuten, have recently ordered from them myself and will do so again.

    Good luck

    His boots will be available at all Self Edge stores once the new run is done (at prices which are very close to the Japanese prices) in April.

    John Lofgren's Made in Japan Champion Sneakers

    John Lofgren footwear needs no introduction. In the span of a few short years, John Lofgren's engineer boots have become the gold standard for boot aficionados. Now he brings his footwear passion and love of vintage style to the classic sneaker.

    Lofgren's new low top sneakers are, of course, fully hand-made in Japan. They're vulcanized at one of Japan's last remaining factories still committed to this process and made from 100% cotton woven in Japan. But it's only when you pick them up, or more importantly put them on your feet, that you'll find what truly sets them apart. Feel that extra heft, that extra cushion. Double soles, a feature rarely seen on sneakers now, make these some of the most comfortable sneaker available. And the bar keeps rising...taped seams, metal eyelets and vents, double stitched stress points, full sponge insoles, reinforced heel and toe cups. A new gold standard for the classic sneaker.

    John Lofgren Natural Chromexcel Engineer Boots

    John Lofgren has taken his wildly popular black engineer boot and done it up in a natural Horween Chromexcel leather. These things are going to look unreal once they're beat up looking. The leather shade combined with his perfect engineer details and shape create a truly unique and beautiful boot.
    These are made in small numbers and we're not sure when or if restocks of this boot will take place.

    Self Edge x John Lofgren "Dessau" High-Top Sneakers

    Once we saw what John Lofgren could do with sneakers with his wildly popular Champion series we needed to get in on the action. We've work with Lofgren to create these classic high-top styles, a sneaker that could be part of your daily uniform. They're comfortable, built very well, and the rubber/canvas/stitching quality is as good as it gets for a sneaker.

    The new Dessau sneakers are fully hand-made in Japan. They're vulcanized at one of Japan's last remaining factories still committed to this process and made from 100% cotton woven in Japan. But it's only when you pick them up, or more importantly put them on your feet, that you'll find what truly sets them apart. Feel that extra heft, that extra cushion. And the bar keeps rising...taped seams, metal eyelets and vents, double stitched stress points, full sponge insoles, reinforced heel and toe cups. A new gold standard for the classic sneaker.

    These are available now in limited numbers in our online store and at SENY, SELA, and SEPDX.

    John Lofgren Black Engineer Boots

    We've received the long anticipated new run of John Lofgren's black Chromexcel engineer boots. It's obvious to us that these are the best engineer boot you can buy, with many clients coming back for other colors once they try a pair out. They're that good, and they're back in stock.

    John Lofgren "Short Shift" Engineer Boot in Badalassi Leather

    Nobody does engineer boots like John Lofgren, so it was only natural that when we looked at making a modified engineer he was the perfect guy. This is a "short shift" version of an engineer boot, so the shaft has been made shorter for both comfort and to make it easier to wear with a wider range of jean fits. This version also has a slightly less stacked sole/heel, so the boot is slightly lighter in weight and has a shorter break-in period.

    We went all out with the leather for this one and had Lofgren source Badalassi's black leather, with a great feel and grain this leather is going to look unbelievable after it has been broken in.

    These are available now in limited numbers in-store and in our online store.

    My Lofgren cognac Badalassi engineers after 6 weeks of wear, i can't believe how quickly these evolved. Also the most comfortable boot i've worn in years.

    John Lofgren Burgundy Chromexcel Engineer Boots & Champion Sneakers

    Fresh from Japan we've just received a large shipment of boots and sneakers from John Lofgren.

    First up we have Lofgen's popular engineer boot done in a dark burgundy chromexcel leather. This leather starts as a deep dark shade of burgundy and is sure to age well considering the chromexcel treatment it's gone through.

    We've also received a new run of Champion sneakers, available now in three colors. There were only 100 of each color produced and the fabrics used are as special as the sneakers themselves. Many of our longtime clients purchased the first run of Champion sneakers and have been waiting for a new run to be made so we're happy they're finally here.
