Update: Brian Truong, aka "Brian the Bootmaker" of Role Club posted the below photo of this exact model following his skillful shortening of the boot shaft down to ten inches.
Here's another one for the ladies having a difficult time finding good Vintage Engineer Boots. This NOS Pair of 1940's Chippewa's (with the pre-1955 label) sold for a mere $315. Even if one didn't like the height, the price of getting them shortened by a skilled Cobbler (ahem...Brian or Takeshi) still puts these at a great deal.
Size 6 1/2 (Men), 8 (Women)
