About two years ago, when I used to think all shoes were the same, my wife bought me my first “nice” pair of boots - a pretty solid, Goodyear construction, rubber soled mid-dark brown pair of Brunello Cuccinelli boots. They were pricey, comfy, and I loved them. Anyway, I started to get into shoes, and the rest is history. These boots haven’t been worn since and have odd special meaning to me. So, I took them out of basement storage and decided to get to work. I feel like I just found a pair of $1,000 boots. The best part is that, because the leather is actually grade-A stuff, it has aged beautifully. A good service and maintenance just brought that out.

Zonkey’s Russian Hatch has really grown on me with time ... The patina is beautiful!
It was love at first sight for me. I got these back in 2016 when the only way to get them was via MTO.

They have not disappointed; only problem is I don’t wear them enough.
