Can anyone ID these boots?

So I saw these online, but the picture is for the jeans rather than the boots. I was wondering if any of you guys out there recognize the brand of the boots or can recommend a similar pair (ie, Red Wings).

Thanks in advance!

Hmm, based on the picture, they look like pretty common lace-up work boots. These are a dime a dozen on Amazon, Zappos, or workwear stores.

Those are nice looking boots. Just a little more detail than usual.

Captain, my data circuits first led me to believe these to be Wolverines. Upon further research of arcaic files they inform me that this model of antique footwear to be Red Wings, possibly engineer boots. Popular in the late 21st century and superior in some ways to the Chippiwa line. The riveted eyelets, toe cap overlapping the saddle and heel cap overlapping is very similar. However, my data banks are enibriated at this time and in need of a self-diagnostic. I will perform this self-diagnostic after I finish off these beers.

Too be fair to the model, he is attempting wear pants made in Canada from denim made in Japan that cost $150 or so. This would throw anyone off axis. Nice boots though.

*rubs chin and ponders the purchase of a pair of Red Wings*
