HJ looks like a good option. Anyone have any idea on how to size either sandal model?

EDIT

Looks like they only ship within Japan.
Size : 7(25-25.5cm),8(26-26.5cm),81/2(26.5-27cm),9(27-27.5cm),10(28-28.5cm)

Email TETSUNOSUKE SHIMOMURA san at let it be clothing if you want to be sure

Most retailers would ship overseas but EMS to the states has been suspended. Place your order through zen market

Not sure about now but Let it be used to charge the 10% japanese consuption tax on overseas orders also

Saw this review on the JL horsebutt. While I don't agree with the fanboydom it is still a review. I know mine are a different leather but it still give me something to look forward to.

I really hope Lofgren will try and source that leather again for another run, or maybe even go back to doing some in badalassi again like he did ages ago. Still want a pair of these down the road at some point, but probably will get Role Clubs first.

Good thread. Thanks for posting. I have almost new Lofgren olive and timber combats in 10.5. Love them to death but they're a hair too small. KIlls me but I will be posting for sale later this week. I have 11s on the way. Huge fan here. You're going to feel it when you start kicking those olives around. The best !!
Black combats getting broken in with Shockoe Kojimas. My timbers are a few wears behind the black. Olives over the pond from ELMC. Here soon to complete the combat trifecta.

My M-43 roughouts on wear #3. The beginning of a long road to looking like the ones above. Denim is Oni 20oz secret denim. View attachment 1398382
Very cool. I have been wearing mine to hike in the wood, go to the park, shopping, and every day activities. I think I have about 15-20 mines on them so far. Still breaking in but starting to get some patina (mainly from denim color transfer). Once I'm happy with that, I'll move on to the Olive. I also have two pairs of White's boots incoming so I have my work set out for me.

Excellent. My biggest break in challenge ahead is Wesco x Standard&Strange Axe Breakers custom fit coming in August.

I'm not usually a black boot guy, probably from my time in the military, but these look amazing.

I have very dialed-in sizing to Lofgren 11 from Brannock 12B for my combats and M-43 but no experience with engineers.
Here’s a stunning pair of Lofgrens I just unboxed. The photos and hype don’t do justice to these boots. Whoa. Denim is Oni 16oz Aizumi.

M-43 Anniversary Horsehide. Thanks to Jamie at EastWest Apparel in the UK.
