Just picked these up off eBay for $20 + Shipping. They are Hitchcock brand boots. I had never heard of the brand before, so I wasn't sure what to expect, but for $20, figured there wasn't too much to lose. I must say I am pleasantly surprised by them-- Biltrite soles, Goodyear welt (albeit plastic, not leather), and they definitely have the vintage style I'm looking for. Threw in some insoles, and they are pretty comfortable, too.
