I've featured plenty of vintage Knapp Engineer Boots in the past, but nothing like this.  This is the holy grail of 'em all.  The bad news is we'll run into something like this once in a blue moon.  The good news is one can obtain the look of these boots with the Mister Freedom Road Champs.

These boots were sold back in 2008 by the fine folks at Rockahula.  There was no mention of how much they were sold for, but I'd definitely pay a pretty penny if I ever came across these.

It's no secret the Road Champs are an original pattern inspired by early American boots, but it's possible Christophe ran across a similar pair during his 2 1/2 years of research and development.  His work clearly paid off...
