The first sighting of the infamous Engineer boot was in 1938. Crafted on an English Riding Boot last with a stovepipe leg, the Engineer was adored by the true engineers of the Depression Era: ship engineers of WWII, and train engineers who needed performance footwear. They are now more at home on the open road, gripping the stirrups of a motorcycle.
A workhorse of a boot, this style gets its name from the people who wore them: the ship and train engineers of the early twentieth century who needed dependable performance footwear. With a form equal to its function, the Engineer remains a popular boot that is hard to beat when it comes to performance or looks.
