The John Lofgren & Co. Engineer Boots post prompted quite a bit of e-mail traffic.  One common question pertained to the toe box and the level of celastic used to shape it.  Well, the answer can be found in the following two photographs.

While trying scrape off a glue droplet from the toe area, I was pleasantly surprised when it just caved in without much pressure. This is an indication that over a little bit of time, the toes are bound to deflate to a point that would make any collector happy.  They obviously won't completely flatten out, but just enough to make the already awesome profile even more desirable.
