Rider Boot Co. Richmond Boot

Rider Boot Co. really knows how to use Horween shell cordovan. The Richmond boot made expressly for Leffot features the ever special color 6, a rich mahogany shade that requires only the clearest and most uniform shells for tanning.

Set against a matching scotch grain shaft, this is a unique and elegant boot that is as well made and comfortable as it is beautiful. With speed hooks and Sestriere soles, it’s a no-nonsense boot that will take regular use with style, and grace.

Rider Boot Co. Dundalk Reverso

The Northeast has been deluged lately hurricanes, tropical storms, and rain rain rain. A client of ours was caught in a serious situation yesterday, which he shared with us in this story below.

“I was caught in a flash flood in New Jersey yesterday in a rental car while wearing a pair of Rider Boot Co. plain toe boots in Reverso calf-skin purchased at Leffot. The water started pouring in and I eventually ended up on the roof of the car in the rain with water over the seats while I waited nearly 40 minutes to be rescued.  I was eventually towed out and then ended up walking in the rain in Jersey City to a train for another 20 minutes or so.

I’m wearing the boots again today and they look like new; the car on the other hand is likely finished.  These are possibly the best pair of shoes I’ve ever owned.”

Sir we salute you and your boots it’s your determination and taste in fine footwear that sets you apart. We’re sorry about the car, at least however it was a rental.

We invite you to join us October 21st & 22nd for our next Rider Boot Co. trunk show. Rider boots are “Possibly the best pair of shoes you’ll ever own.”
