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.

The aptly-named Masterpiece derby shoes are an extremely refined pair of not-quite-dress shoes. Made from a black tea-core box calf leather from Japan, these will age beautifully over time, keeping the upper class aesthetic if worn carefully, or tarnishing into something totally new (and equally handsome) if you beat them up. These are among our favorite footwear for versatile styling.

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 leather is a tea core finish, and will begin to show the warm tan layers beneath the die if scuffed.

Featuring tonal black hardware, they stand on a soft yet sturdy leather outsole, that will break-in quickly with wear, gaining traction as the sole scuffs up slightly - we do not recommend leather outsoles in wet or rainy conditions. The heel is a Biltrite Nylon heel, with exceptional comfort and durability. Inside, they feature RDT's usual kip leather lining.

These are built on the Rolling Dub Trio Navy last. We suggest choosing one half (0.5) size smaller than your Brannock measurement.
