One of the nicer pairs to be offered in recent times, these now very common Vintage Engineer Boots from the Herman Shoes & Boot Co. have been well taken care of.  It's clear that they've developed some desired patina only to be masked with a nice polishing.

I'd be happy to take these home for the final selling price, but since they've surfaced more frequently than not, I would find it hard to pay a penny more.   Frankly, for me, vintage Herman Engineer Boots have definitely lost their flair.

I really dig the quadruple stitching on the heel counter.
