LK-029 USN Low Quarter Shoes French Calf Black
John Lofgren's 140 last runs large, we recommend sizing down one full size from your standard Brannock measurement. Consider a half size if you have a very wide foot or high instep.
In 1941 the khaki uniform was approved for officers in all branches of the US Navy, and the plain low quarter shoe became the standard for wear with the uniform. Regulation US Navy shoes were made in black or brown chrome calfskin, had a Goodyear welt leather sole, a plain toe, and followed a classic blucher pattern.
John Lofgren Bootmaker USN Low Quarter Shoes are made robust and follow the same construction guidelines as the original WWII era shoes that were issued to USN and USMC officers. They are masterpieces crafted by people passionate about footwear and designed to maintain tradition while meeting modern day needs.
