Shift boot replacement

The shift boot on my Boxster S 2001 has not aged very well. The thin leather is looking worn and old, and is following the countour of the shift hole like some cheap material.

Any suggestion on possible replacements?

Obtain a new one through whatever means is cheapest. Replacement is real easy. Get your fingers under it at the back and pull up. It snaps right out. Unsnap the front part and pull the ring and leather up exposing the metal shift lever. You need to pull out away from the center console until the tabs in front clear the plastic trim batwing with "Boxster S" on it. If you have the standard boot, you can now just pull it straight up to get it off the shaft. If you have a fancy knob, such as carbon fiber, wood, or aluminum, there will be a hex screw locking it to the shaft.
