These are a great pair of Vintage Engineer Boots with perfect wear.  Unfortunately, the wear has gone beyond the heel pad and onto the heel.  Not a big deal, but the last thing one wants to do after spending this much money on a pair of boots is to send it to the local cobbler for repair...unless it's going to Okuyama.

These have a lot of vintage Chippewa characteristics to include the rectangular instep buckles and sharp-cornered square top buckles.  I hate to say it, but $425 is about right in today's market.  Ideally, it should have sold for $250-$300 in my opinion.  There's no doubt these would've sold for much more with a Chippewa label.
