So in your mind, positive feedback means all is good but negative feedback means that I have ulterior motives ...

Enjoy your boots, Dave.
I don't understand the cyberbullying that is going on here against a good company. I have a dozen pairs of ZB and have never had any issues. I don't get discounts, except the 15% they offered everyone last month, and pay them full price. They are small business and comparing their quality and pricing to St Crispin, I stand by my statement they are a great value. I am transparent on what I pay and that I have way too many boots.

The way it sounded between the lines, you approached ZB to get discounts because you can influence with your reviews. You finally purchased a discount pair, had a concern about the shoe wax and wanted more discounts instead of fixing it. It wasn't that ZB wouldn't help. So yeah, I think you had ulterior motives. Now everyone seems to be in ZB bashing mode when, IMO, ZB is the victim here. I've had shoes from Japan arrive cloudy and needed to work them. Most turn out fine, a few had interesting depth to the polish. But I keep all my boots and shoes, I don't sell them.

Is anyone getting in on their anniversary sale offer of no surcharge for MTO? Also, can anyone comment on their elephant leather? I was actually thinking about the 230 split-toe derby in it, though I know that sounds kinda crazy. Would probably choose some other style in the end, but highly intrigued by the material. Would love to hear reviews.

Can't help you on the leather, but it's on my short list too. That, horsehide or shrunken bull

Yeah, I've also got my eye on that horsehide! I've never much cared for Horween shell, but this one looks intriguingly different. Wish I knew more about it. I'm also intrigued by the Tuscan boot leather and the Barenil. Spoiled for choice, I suppose.

I emailed Alexandra this am and got a very speedy response if that helps

I have pulled the trigger. My first pair of ZB. It was in my cart/eye for a lot of time and I’ve got something important to celebrate.
