    This shoe has been sitting at a clearance price for a few months in size UK12. I finally decided to take the Zonkey plunge and ordered them today. Hopefully they fit!

    Nice!
    If they had been my size they would have been gone long ago.

    They seemed to be up for a long time. I probably visit the site once a month and those have been on there since December or January. Finally decided it would be a great casual shoe and the price was good for sizing experiment.

    Got these in today. Haven't had a chance to inspect closely yet, but the fit seems good. Leather feels fantastic. 20180605_171658.jpg 20180605_171648.jpg

    Nice. They look even better than they did on their website. Enjoy!

    Thanks. One thing that popped out was how long the shoes look with the short apron. I am 6'5 so I don't worry about shoes looking like boats, but some people might. Otherwise these are awesome.

    I really like these boots, and when I wore these two weeks ago I realized I don’t wear them nearly enough. So, I’m fixing that.

    By and large, I simply don't do impulse purchases and haven't done for some time. But thanks to a heads-up from a fellow forumite, I now have my first pair of Zonkey Boot inbound. Interested to finally see an example from the brand for myself - and hoping they fit - lol!
