Rolling Dub Trio are produced in small batches from the Tokyo-based "The Boots Factory", the name of the production wing of RDT. Inspired by vintage styles, Rolling Dub Trio designs are unique, featuring inspired twists and always using the highest quality materials on the market.

Utilizing old world construction methods, from two-row stitchdown to 360 flat welts, Rolling Dub Trio footwear is built not only to last, but to be fully rebuildable and recraftable over time. Featuring heavy, precise stitchwork and cleanly cut uppers - Rolling Dub Trio's footwear is as handsome as it is strong and comfortable.

Side zip: cowboy edition. The Gleaner boots are a more western-styled zip up boot from Rolling Dub Trio, with a touch more detailing than the wholecut Casper boots. Despite their Western-leanings, they're extremely versatile, and can be easily incorporated into a number of different outfits, easily dressing up and down depending on the occasion. 

Made from a sleek, all-black Japanese box calfskin, the leather is dense yet surprisingly supple. Finished with a conditioning and brushing, they have a gentle shine, and will form small, tight creases as they break in. This is not a tea core leather, meaning it will keep its dark black die even through scuffs and bumps.

The hardware is up to the usual RDT standards, with custom woven pull tabs at the heel, solid antique brass locking zippers, a Vibram #269 "Western" outsole and a custom The Boots Factory heel. They feature a 270 degree Goodyear flat welt construction that can be rebuilt by any trusted cobbler when the soles wear down.

These are built on the Rolling Dub Trio LC-01 last. For average volume and D-width feet, we suggest choosing 0.5 size smaller than your Brannock measurement. If you have particularly wide feet, you may want to go true to Brannock size.
