This is, by far, my favorite pair of boots that have been offered in quite some time.  I wish I knew about these while the auction was still active.  I think the sales tag identifies them as being from 1941...what'dya think?  The seller also stated the tag reveals a price tag of $15.00.  Save for the aftermarket metal work, this is truly a museum piece.  One that I would’ve paid good money for, but reluctant to wear.

I’d bet that if these Vintage Engineer Boots were a half or full size larger, at least five more bills could have been made.  I would’ve been content with taking these home at the selling price.

Not much more to say, except for…”Wow!”
