If you're ready to demand nothing but the best from your sneakers, John Lofgren may just tick all the checkboxes on your list. The silhouette is a classic look that will never go out of style and each pair is fully handmade from top to bottom in Japan.

The shoes are vulcanized in one of the country's last remaining vulcanization factories and the upper is a cotton that's also woven in Japan. They've also added dual insoles for comfort, taped seams, double stitched stress points, and reinforced heel and toe cups. Now, would you want any less from a sneaker? 

$245 (also available in navy and camo), available now at
