    Why on earth would you go out and name a high end shoe company "zonkey"? I googled it and was informed that there exists an animal that is a cross between a zebra and a donkey

    Can someone tell me what size these EG's on eBay would fit as. . . (US size, true to size, wide, etc.)?

    My best cordovan shoes are from EG- much nicer than any Aldens I've owned.

    They're meant to be my snow boots and will look better and better when broken in. I originally ordered a rubber, knobbed outsole, but they got lost in the process.

    True. Don't get me wrong, I like Aldens, but they have REAL quality control problems. To me, the Sandringhams above are an anomaly.

    The Zonkies are made in the Veneto region of Italy. (according to the web site).

    Sort of explains their vibe - Owners in Vienna, Plant in Italy.

    My inlaws live in this part of the world........wonder if I can track down where they are made next time I go.

    Thanks.
    So the 'E' doesn't mean wide here? Or does this model/last run slim?

    Speaking of EG quality control, I ordered an antique burgundy belt and they sent me one that resembled nightshade after 2 months of wait time so I have to wait another 2 months.
