Dear sir,

First I would like to thank you for your great work. I am an avid reader and a big fan of your blog. I am faced with a decision and would like to hear your assessment. It's about a pair of Attractions lot.444 engineer boots that I want to order. I already own two pairs of John Lofgren engineer boots with which I am very happy. As I have taken it from your website, the sizes are identical, but what worries me is the shaft. Is this much narrower than the John Lofgren boots? At the beginning I had some difficulty in getting into the boots, which has improved significantly over time. I would be very grateful if you could help me on the matter.

Best regards from Germany,


Hello Stephan,

Thank you for your email! The shafts are quite similar on both the John Lofgren and Attractions Lot.444 Engineer Boots. Over time, depending of the level of wear, the soft and supple attributes of Horween's CXL leather really begin to take shape causing the shaft to slouch beautifully. The horse butt leather used on the Lot. 444 is quite stiff and will pretty much remain that way with very minimal slouch giving you that perpetual stove piped shaft.

I hope this helps.
