Here's a really nice looking pair of vintage Chippewa Engineers from around the early 1960s that were recently sold at auction for a very reasonable and realistic price. With the amazing homage boot offering by all the Japanese brands, a vintage pair of boots would have to be pretty incredible for me to want to spend anything over five bills.
