Since the vintage (online) market has been absent of anything really worth mentioning, it's easy to understand why someone would be willing to pay so much for these. Aside from the the flattened toe box, there's truly nothing to write home about. And it's worth noting that unless these are a half size larger than  the buyer's foot size, the toe box will more than likely lose its profile making them just an expensive pair of 1960's Vintage Engineer Boots. 

I'd sooner drop some hard-earned scratch on a pair of modern heritage boots. Congrats to the seller.
