A recent acquisition of our growing vintage department, these vintage Harley Davidson engineer boots represent a timeless work and motorcycle wear -inspired style. Paired best with a sturdy pair of selvedge denim (not to mention a beat up vintage leather jacket), these boots are as fierce as they are comfortable.
Engineer boots are designed to protect the wearer from injury to the foot and leg: for motorcycle riders, in the case of an accident while riding and to prevent burns of the rider's legs and feet from the heat of the motorcycle parts while riding. Engineer boots typically have an adjustable leather strap across the ankle as well as an adjustable leather strap at the top of the shaft to adjust the fit.
Though also a quintessential work boot, the engineer boot is a great all-purpose utility boot as well - ready for heavy labor, fast bike rides, or as an extension of your particularly rugged outlook on footwear and personal style.
DETAILS: One of the most bad ass boots out there is the iconic engineer boot. This style of boot started out as work wear and quickly became the boot of choice for bikers the world over. For bike use, they are typically equipped with steel toes and high back heels. This pair of Harley Davidson engineer boots, most likely from the 1970s or 80s has neither, meaning they are a bit better suited to normal everyday wear (especially with the low heel).
