1960s Sears Engineer Boots

Vintage engineer boots are in high demand, especially the ones before the 1950s. I’m not about to wear some 1950s boots around, so the 60s seem like a good alternative. Sears has been selling workwear for over 100 years, and making private label items as well. The engineer boots they carry vary from season to season. This pair just happens to made by Chippewa. The buckles, the backstay, the profile, pattern, etc. are a dead ringer for Chippewa boots made around the same time. Customized by Fukurokuju.

SPECS: Cat’s Paw soles and heels. Steel toe removed. New insole. Single mid-sole. New welt. Re-lasted.
