Over a year ago I featured the exact same model that had "Friedman-Shelby" stamped on the upper shaft.  They went unsold at only eight bills. 

I still can't get over the floating instep strap, otherwise this is a great pair of Vintage Engineer Boots with an attractive profile.  The brass hardware, toe tracks, cut top and pristine condition are definite pluses. 

A little steep in the sales department, I'd still have paid no more than twelve bills for this pair.  I have a gut feeling this pair is going to the Land of the Rising Sun.
