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 Roots 8.5" Boots are actually a little taller than eight point five inches, clocking in a little over 9 and a half inches tall if you include the heel height. While not the tallest boots in our lineup, they're certainly up there for a laceup, and should be respected for their height and the additional few seconds it will take to put them on or take them off. They've also got a perforated cap toe, to dress em up a bit.
The leather is serious - Italian tea core horsebutt, hand-selected and then given a final oil treatment in Japan before being cut and sewn into boots. The leather is quite stiff initially, but over time will relax as it breaks in and takes the shape of your foot. The expertly selected horsebutt will form appealing rolls as it wears in, differing from the more tight creases that aged cowhide will develop.
Hardware and trims are similarly impressive, with a super-soft and plush gusseted Bison leather tongue, and an internal Kip lining. The front closes up with rawhide laces and a stack of solid brass eyelets and speed hooks (4 eyelets, 5 hooks, & one more eyelet). A custom-made The Boots Factory rubber outsole & Quabaug heel provide excellent comfort & traction without compromising the low profile of the sole.
These are built on the Munson Last, for the best fit, we suggest going down 1 full size from Brannock. If you have particularly wide feet, you may only need to size down 0.5 from Brannock.
