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 low-cut version of the Roots are an excellent boot/shoe hybrid, with a great heft but the ability to dress them up a bit despite the more chunky build. Exceptionally comfortable, especially after break-in, these make for a great daily driver, giving you the strength and security of a boot with the versatility of a casual shoe.
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 leather tongue, and an internal kip lining. The front closes up with rawhide laces and a 4 solid brass eyelets. 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.
