I had these in my cross hairs at the same time I won my first pair of WESCO Boss Engineer Boots and was secretly hoping I'd lose the auction just so I could win these.  After all, these are vintage (they appear to be older than circa "1986") and, in my opinion, pretty rare and WESCO's can be custom-made at any time.  I had to make a command decision and although the thought of bidding (with full intent on winning) both boots was very appealing, I snapped out of it and chose the WESCO's only because the fit seemed to be just a hair better.  I mean, what does one man do with ten pair of Engineer Boots? 

This here is a great pair of boots at such an amazing price.  With the desirable profile brass buckles and the predictably amazing patina, these should have sold for at least a bill or two more.  I would've bid no more than $350.00
