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, the Rios boots leather molds to your feet and holds them in place with every step.
Rios of Mercedes boots are made with all-leather construction. 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. Each pair of Rios of Mercedes is hand-lasted, hand-stitched, hand-pegged and hand-finished.
