Not a bad pair of boots.  I wouldn't have paid this much scratch for them, but they're nice nonetheless.  I guess when you wear a size 11, you'd have to jump at any opportunity for a pair of boots like these.  Although, around the time these boots sold online, there were quite a few larger size Vintage Engineer Boots that sold for much less.  My only real complaint is the unsightly re-heel.  I can almost guarantee that these boots had factory low-profile heels and the new ones leave much to be desired.  In my opinion these heels give them a 1970's profile reminiscent of those put out by Sears.
