Update:  Now on eBay

I was just going through my belongings and came across a pair of super rare Vintage Engineer Boots that have I've worn only twice in the past two years - the rest of the time, I pretty much just admire them sitting in the corner.  Since I purchased them close to four years ago, I would guess that they've been worn just a handful of times.  In my twenty-three years of collecting Engineer Boots, this is the only pair I've seen outside of the original catalog excerpt.

Feeling a bit guilty that they've been neglected so long, I've decided to afford someone the opportunity to actually add more miles to 'em. I shot myself in the foot with the past two pairs of 1940's Chippewa's, so I learned my lesson and I'm not letting these go for cheap this time.  Serious inquiries only, please.

If interested, I can be reached at

No size found, but measures (approximately) just over 11 1/4" from heel to toe and 4 5/16" at the soles' widest points.

All original studs and jewels!

With flash to show how the material still reflects nice and bright

Very prominent toe tracks!

A few missing studs, but absolutely does not detract

Original half soles and heels.  I added a piece of stick-on shoe gripper (boot on the left) to avoid any further loss of rubber from the sole.  It comes off as easy as a sticker.

Flash!! Even the Nite-Glo Welts still glow in the dark (only for a short period) when charged with bright light - It was difficult to capture it on film, but it's pretty neat.
