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.

They are already with me.
I’m more than happy with them.
Very well executed, fits ok and what is more important for me They put a smile on my face when I tried them today.
in my opinion, They are on casual side of the dress shoes which is also important for me because with the pandemic and working from home I’m more a air max guy than a suit guy, which is what I was for the last 10 years😉

What was the turnaround time? Did you order through an AD or directly from the website?
I ordered the pair directly from the website.

Very good communication and process and reactive client service. They ask you to provide 4 measurements first to determine the size. I already owned 2 pairs from them bought in 2013 from an AD in Paris with 2 different sizes on the same last (6 UK and 6.5 UK).

It seems that those pairs were based on a hybrid fitting, because I used to wear 7 UK on almost all brands. They confirmed me I would be a 7 UK on the new ZB pair and indeed they fit perfectly.

The estimated manufacturing time was 10-14 weeks, I received them after 13 weeks.

Overall I am very satisfied with the experience and will probably order again.

All - please see below for a GMTO we are trying to get over the finish line. ZB Jodhpur boot 034 in Hatch Grain Embossed Vacchetta. @stephenaf2003 can confirm that if you were to only own one Jodhpur the Zonkey Boot is where it's at.
