Brand: Kirkendall
Circa: 1950's
Color: Black
Hardware: Nickel
Sold For: $671.00

Here's a brand I'm not familiar with.  The busy factory of the F.P. Kirkendall Boot Company was established in the four-story Millard Block building in Omaha, Nebraska at the beginning of the 20th century.  It was once the world's largest producer of riding boots, supplying them to such prestigious customers as King Gustav V of Sweden and Emperor Yoshohito of Japan, as well as working cowboys everywhere.

One thing is for sure...they produced a great looking pair of Engineer Boots!  Not a bad price for a somewhat obsure brand in lightly used condition.
