Love the uplifted toe shape on these. Very slick look!

Haven't tried Wesco yet, but I like looking at the JP blog because they usually have some interesting/nice makeups. I'm liking the different JH Classics (the burgundy one in particular)...

I’m just curious, what is the historic significance of the MP toe?  I got my Boss done in that style and was going for the vintage engineer boot look.

Has Wesco or anyone here explained much about the MP toe besides the narrowness?  Any old ads showing this?

MP Toe = Motorcycle Patrol last used on their Motorcycle Patrol police style boots.

For those of you with paraboots, specifically the chambord, how would you say they fit in width compared to say a red wing 8 last? Hoping they’re somewhat wider.

Thinking about getting a pair of the natural paraboot micheals that s&s has. Would love to see some on feet if anyone has some.

Standard and Strange have an interesting looking as yet 'secret' leather on these Lofgren's.

Secret or not I personally feel that the leather color looks awful so they'd better age as fast as possible, on someone else feet too.

Not much of a secret if they have posted it on social media... also the fact it's white leather boots would pretty much guarantee they age quickly!

Is there a worse choice for boots than white leather?  

Appalling.

I think sagara made some boots in a similar looking leather a couple of months ago. They don't look really white on the sagara's pair.

I think the worn pair looks pretty good imho

Those white boots are hideous and I'm surprised Lofgren signed off on them as I generally like his designs and special edition leathers.

He might not know..hence the secrecy

They remind me of back in the 80's when you used to cake your Rod Lavers in that Kiwi shoe whitening crap with the little sponge on the end of the bottle..It was a bit like Tippex
