There haven't been too many nice Vintage Engineer Boots up lately, but this one caught my eye.   I am a big fan of 1930's and 1940's Engineer Boots and this pair has all the characteristics with the cheesy period "aftermarket" cigarette pocket.  No brand on these, but the way the vamp and heel pad are sewn together reminds me of Knapp.  Not sure why this one sold for so little (that's a great thing) when compared to all the blatantly obvious 1970's crappy boots being passed off as 1950's that sell for over $600.
