Such a nice profile on this pair of Vintage Engineer Boots with perfect patina on the leather and brass buckles.  The seller is rumored to have accepted an early offer of $1,000 for them.  That’s about right for this caliber of boot, especially if they are horsehide.  Brass buckles, toe tracks, great leather, patina, Cat’s Paw soles…have a cobbler pound in a set of Cat’s Paw heels and call it a day.  They remind me of my Real McCoy’s Buco’s/Toy’s McCoy Beck’s – perhaps, the inspiration for them?
