It's definitely a slow time for decent Vintage Engineer Boot sales when the only pair worth mentioning over the past couple of weeks is this super small pair made by Pair-A-Trooper.  Even then, there's nothing truly spectacular about them -  just humdrum in my opinion.  I've been waiting for a pair with original half soles, but I can give up on those dreams since I can never find them in my size.

The seller states that these are "30's-40's" when in fact they are about a decade or two later than that.  In a much larger size, these boots would be worth around five to seven bills.  In reality, though, some crazed collector wouldn't hesitate to pay a few more bills for them.
