Designed in Vienna, made in Veneto.
Zonkey Boot, the brand, was founded in 2010 by Alexandra Diaconu and Michael Rollig and has its headquarters in their hometown of Vienna, Austria. Zonkey aim to marry modern design with traditional shoemaking values. There is no place for robotized manufacturing and each pair requires hundreds of steps. They are one of the few high-end brands that can boast hand-sewn welts, a process usually reserved for bespoke shoemaking,
Many of the other steps also rely on pure manual skill. Other operations are executed with old and often irreplaceable machines but it is always the guiding hand of a skilled craftsman which guarantees the perfect result. Zonkey Boot are certainly new kids on the block but their philosophy ensures that traditional craftsmanship is revered and respected.
