Zonkey Boot Appreciation Thread - Page 7

post #91 of 155


Got these beauties in today. Man I love Zonkey Boots Russian Calf!
post #92 of 155
Hey fella's, with summer just around the corner I'm thinking I need a nice pair of casual Zonkey's. I've put in an inquiry with Alexandra about their moccasin. I'm checking to see if any of you are interested in hopping in on a GMTO.

Zonkey Boot moccasins sewn by hand on the Walker last. The uppers are made from deer leather, lined with calf leather. Blake-stitched leather soles. (ZB 023)"

According to Alexandra, most customers with what would be considered normal feet wear the same size in the walker last as they do in all of the othe Zonkey lasts.

Here is the shoe in question.
.

And here is the swatch of their deer skin; which this shoe comes in. I'm partial to 160 or 520. But am open to what a group might decide on.

Just received my 048 wholecut derby boots from the GMTO a few months back, take a look below for my thoughts on them!

Very nice! Really excited to receive mine. They look like they broke in very easily.

They are stunning! I must admit I didn't expect the wholecut derby to suit the Norvegese welt as well as it does with it the boot being such a clean design but it works very well indeed.

 

I wish I had determined my size prior to your GMTO ending.

Lovely, but I dig those Jodhpurs more.  

 

What is the GMTO policy for Zonkey?

You need at least 3 people per makeup to qualify as a GMTO.  For other details, I encourage you to ask Alexandra herself via the shop e-mail.

My first pair of suede shoes and my second pair of Zonkeys. Such good quality as expected.

Any wear pictures of jodhpurs? How easy is it to get in and out of them?
post #104 of 155




Got my Zonkey wholecuts done up in Russian leather. Zonkey makes a really beautiful shoe; I know they aren't actually shoe makers, but such an under rated outfit IMO.

I am a bit disappointed though; the cross hatch is much more pronounced on my 142 Coles than on these wholecuts.
Still very happy I ordered them, and sure I will be as pleased with them as with the other Zonkey's I own.

I can take some photos later if you would like? What sort of photos?

 

Assuming the fit is correct (i.e. the widest part of the ball of your foot lines up with the widest part of the vamp) they are a good snug fit when putting them on/taking them off. The lining leather is smooth and the shaft acts as its own shoe tree so just make sure the belts are completely open first.

 

Fit is much the same as a Chelsea boot to be honest in that the first few times you have to put more pressure than you think you should but it soon becomes second nature.
