    You can find it at retailers but seems like their web store doesn't have any on classic at the moment

    I am very enamored of the Zonkey Boot Jodhpurs, but as a person with wide feet and high instep, I think I will likely need the H build. Does anyone with wide high arch/instep feet have any experience with the H? I am 10EEE in Strands. Whites Boots 9.5EE are my most comfortable shoe.

    Would anyone be interested in a GMTO for a Jodhpur build? It only takes three pairs, but they do all have to be identical. Then they waive the 30% up charge.

    These look great!! A few years ago, YOOX had several different styles from Zonkey Boot. If the pics had looked this good, I would have brought a few pairs:brick:

    IMO, they are criminally underrepresented on SF.

    Hi, would any body be willing to help me out with sizing for Zonkey Boot and their lasts?

    For reference I'm a:
    8.5D Alden Barrie
    8.5E EG 606

    Would be greatly appreciated.

    I saw some Zonkey Boot shoes when I was in Tokyo last year. They looked really good from memory, but they didn't have my size at the time.

    Best to email ZB and ask. You should be a UK 7.5 most likely.

    If you get interest on a shrunken buffalo Jodhpur with rubber sole I would be down. Possibly Russian Calf straps.

    Sorry to be pedantic, but the picture you posted is not a jodhpur.

    ^^ Looks amazing! I love the way my Russian Calf is aging as well.

    Yeah it's great as long as you don't get a pair that has finishing issues.

    In case anyone is interested, we are looking for just one more person to go in on a Zonkey Boot GMTO! The makeup is the exact same as the wholecut derby boots commissioned by ecwy and pictured above, but without the pull tabs on the back. I have been oogling them on Instagram for quite awhile now and couldn't wait any longer. Cheers, ecwy, on putting together a beautiful makeup! I hope you don't mind that we are hijacking your design :)
