Finally, a pair of 17" Vintage Engineer Boots bringing in the same market price as their shorter peers...and with good reason - they are "Blue Label" Red Wings.  The profile on these are pretty decent; I've seen sexier, but I say they sold for this much due to their scarcity. 
Although marked a "7D," I say it could easitly fit a size 8D.  I have plenty of size 8D Engineer Boots with the same measurements. 
In a perfect world, I see these selling for five or six hundred.  I personally would do no more than eight bills.
