    Just gotta look a little harder (it's under "Shoe Guide" in the online shop): http://zonkeyboot.com/shop/page/sizes-and-fitting

    I recall reading somewhere that Zonkeyboot was associated with Saint Crispin somehow

    I think some people, including the OP, are having some trouble with the notion of 'unknown'. Rubinacci, LBM 1911, Belvest, Caruso, Isaia, Borelli, Partenopea, Saint Crispin etc. are all well-known (not to say, aspirational and iconic) here and would be to anyone who pays any attention to men's clothing or reads any men's magazines. Even Jack/Knife has had some exposure here (from Urban Composition in particular, I recall).

    They may not be well-known to the general public, but then almost every brand people are interested in here is outside the worldview of the general public.

    The general public probably couldn't tell you what Zegna is. :)

    Not sure about the quality, but the obscurest brands I can think of are:

    Guilty Brotherhood
    and
    Conference of Birds (both are French street labels if I'm not mistaken)
