Anybody here have any experience with the Donkey Punchers?

I am looking at pre-ordering a pair in the natural CXL. I don't need another pair of boots, but I've had my eye on these for awhile and I am liking the new colorway.

Also, any input on sizing? I talked to the guys at Standard & Strange and they said based on my Wesco sizing to go with an 11D (my usual boot size pretty much across the board), despite the fact that the description says they run big and to size a full size down.
You won’t be satisfied until you wear Iron Heart.

Received a new pair today...
Donkey punchers - Natural chromexel
this is my second attempt to buy the donkey punchers, first failed due to the wrong size, and then I failed to find my size. I had to wait for almost a year for new releases and finally found this boots in a different color(the first attempt was to buy burgundy).

this is size - 9, and Natural Chromexel color.
I have bought them from Standard and Strange web store, some description from their website:
*6" lace-to-toe boot
*Goodyear Welted
*Exclusive John Lofgren last
*Natural Chromexcel Horween leather
*Japanese horsehide lining
*Vibram 705 sole + 700 heel combination
*American-made brass eyelets and speedhooks
*Stacked logger heel
*Removable leather 'kiltie' toe cover
*Made in Japan

The Horween Chromexcel in natural used for these boots has not been dyed or treated in any way, and will have a range of tones out of the box. With wear, they will settle into a uniform color from use.

my own first impression is very positive, they are comfortable like bespoke boots, and very well made.


good packing

just out of the box

first try

closer look

horse hide lining, very soft and supple

vibram sole

sole edges has very nice finish

after initial treatment using some Saphir for chromexel stuff

probably would wear like that, without kiltie...
