Where can I find these boots?

Ed Weeks is wearing some boots in today's NY Times that I am coveting. They have what looks like leather and then blue fabric sides.

Here.

If you have today's NY Times in print you can see it much larger.

Can you tell me where to find them?

Hmm. They look a lot like a lighter version of these men's frye boots. Frye has similar tan/distressed finishes, too, so it seems it might be possible that they're an older design of the same boots.

Seconding the Frye boots. Here are some close alternatives too:

Helm Handmade Reid $389
Billy Reid Bayou Boots on sale $222 but stock is dwindling.
Caterpillar Abe TX $140

They're (probably) definitely not the Fryes. The boots on Weeks really look like they have closed-lacing; the Fryes have open-lacing (primer on open vs closed). If that's the case (it's really small in the photo, but I just can't see flaps over the vamp), they're different boots.

Yes, those are some lovely boots y'all have linked to, but these have a different loo - The Michael's right, the way they are constructed isn't the same.

Some how my 'k' didn't make it on the end of 'loo'.
