This is a GREAT pair of boots with what seems to be orginal 1950's Vibram soles. Check out the original 1950's photograph I found of a competitor signing up for a race wearing the same boots (perhaps the owner of these boots???). The low selling price of these boots indicate the lack of interest due to the soles. With normal soles/heels, these would've sold for well over $300 (at a minimum). I would've been happy to take these home for $200. You probably won't see another one of these any time soon.
