And the seller of these boots allowed it to happen ... to him/her.

Brand: Sears Roebuck & Co.
Model: Wearmaster
Circa: 1950's / early 1960's
Color: Black
Size: Unknown, but measurements read like an 8
Sole: 11 1/4"
Width: 4"
Sole: Full Composition
Hardware: Rusted nickel
Leather: Oil-tanned Cowhide
Sold For: $40

Besides the obvious discrepancies, these Vintage Engineer Boots are in amazing condition.  So amazing that I can't tell by the photos if they were worked on and conditioned by a cobbler.  Either way, it would take just a few bucks for ANY local shop to bring these boots back up to par.  I'd personally save time and money and perform the repairs myself.

On a bad day, these should've put at least five bills in the sellers pocket.  I'd pay six to eight without batting an eye.

Product knowledge, folks -  don't sell yourself short.  The interesting thing is the seller used two photos lifted from this here blog.  A simple search would've alerted him/her that these were gems which could have covered at least two car payments.
The toes on these suckers aren't even deflated yet!

All parts are accounted for with the left instep strap needing just a little creative work.

Stacked Woodsman heels

Is that composition, cork or leather?  Hard to tell with this photo
