THAT SUPERIOR FIT? THAT'S TRUE CRAFTSMANSHIP.
Our boots have a fit like no other. Snug yet supple, Rios boots are like gloves for your feet. They won’t slip or slide like boots with synthetic components often do. The leather is cut with the natural stretch of the particular hide in mind, so that it stretches side-to-side over the ball of the foot. With all-leather construction, Rios boots mold to your feet and holds them in place with every step.
We use premium hides because they’re naturally more durable, look better and will stand up to your demands. Before cutting, the hides are situated so that each cut is made across the width of the hide instead of the length. This allows the natural fibers of the hide to move as the good Lord intended. After the hides are cut to their specific instructions, the life of the boot has begun. Each pair of Rios of Mercedes is hand-lasted, hand-stitched, hand-pegged and hand-finished. Again, we take more time to make our boots because excellence is our standard.
