Update (7 May 2011): The person for whom the auction was ended early for put it back on eBay and it sold for $630.23 / 17 Bids.  Not a bad price at all - right where I feel boots of this caliber should sell for.

Wow!  Another pair of amazing Vintage Beck Engineer Boots.  This time at a size that appeals to the masses (or just me).  The only indicated measurement is the length, which tells me they are are about a size 7 1/2 to 8. 

These were listed then...gone.  I can only imagine what the seller let them go for.  My gut feeling tells me they were sold for a relatively low price.  Or...we may see them back on the auction block for a ridiculous price.

I don't know what to say about the size "470."  I performed a search and anything I found relative to this implied female footwear, which can't be right...I don't think.  Either way, I'd rock these in a heart beat.  The profile is awesome and although it'll take time for it to be broken in, these will definitely look amazing with age.


  1. I talked to the seller and missed these boots by about 10 minutes. They went for $550. Not bad, considering.

  2. I knew it...that's super cheap.

    Thanks Ray!!
