These just don't pass the sniff test - Nothing about these boots indicate that they are a Red Wing brand, as the seller stated in the description.  The arched and tapered instep strap is reminiscent of ones used on Knapp Engineer Boots (these aren't Knapps - in my opinion).  The upper buckles (missing their straps) do not match the instep buckles.  They also do not appear to have steel toes.  Perhaps a description intended for a different pair of boots?  Either way, the boots didn't last too long before the auction was ended early with no bids.  I can't imagine what someone would offer for these boots (if that was the case).  Worth only a bill, in my book.
