I'm not a big boot poster so please forgive any faux pas.
John Lofgren Black Monkey Boots...in a word....AWESOME!
Bought via S&S in August 2019 with February, 2020 delivery expectation.
S&S folks were super helpful, as everyone probably knows & after discussing sizing I went with a 10. I'm Brannock 11.25 & wear a Viberg 2030 size 10.
February rolled around & they didn't come in but were expected for March.
Then, well, ya know what happened next so delivery delayed again.
Finally arrived in late May. They were tight in the toe. Hurting tight. Fortunately S&S had a 10.5 in stock & we made the exchange, which arrived mid June. The 10.5 fit great. The boot is great. They are like buttah. No break in needed. I love them. If it's a style you like I definitely recommend.
Yeah, Buddy. Those are hot. I’ve wanted a pair since I first saw them. Excellent score. Enjoy.

@Markfisher702, I was thinking about them, saw your photos, and just placed my order. Mari was great, working me through proper sizing and other questions, eliminating that minor anxiety you get when ordering boots from a make you've not ordered previously.

Please do keep us up to date. I've got a bit of a wait ahead on these, so it'd be great to know how it's going with yours -- how they're feeling, how they're looking -- as you put more wear into them.

Yeah. Great move. So.....I have endless anxiety about sizing for online clothes and boots. Sometimes, it’s easy to make a mistake and spend a few bucks to return for another size. Not in this case. I read a lot of reports on Wesco sizing and talked to Mari as well. I decided to spend an extra $100 for custom sizing. I’ll tell you, they fit like gloves....stiff gloves that need some break in but the size is exactly right. I’m really happy with the up charge.
