This is a brand not often seen on the action block, bust as can be seen they are very well built Vintage Engineer Boots.  I'm a big fan of the one piece vamp/heel counter as the look is typical of early century hunting/sporting boots.

It's pretty clear that tall boots gain the attention of only a small niche market of collectors, but keep in mind that this was the standard height back then - War rationing caused the shortening of this type of footwear.

I'd have be happy to reel these in for a best offer of about $350-$400, so the buyer made out really well - congrats!!
