Up for sale is one of the best engineer boots you can get on the market today. Everything about the profile and hardware just screams "1940s Chippewa" to me. These are made in Japan, and getting through the waitlist takes about half a year. Not only are these boots gorgeous to behold, but they're also built like a tank. It pains me to have to sell these, as they're a tad too tight on my feet. I haven't really gotten to breaking these in because of it, so the soles are still like brand new and quite stiff. The leather is from Horween (not CXL), and it is thick yet feels moldeable. There's minor surface scuffing/scratching on the leather, see photos. Marked size is 8D, but they feel more like a 7.5D to me. Length across bottom sole = 28.4cm/11.2" Width = 11.3cm/4.4" Asking price is 400 euros plus shipping.
