In 1853, our boots were handmade. In 2017, our boots are handmade.
Experience has shown us that people come first. Of all the elements that go into making a Rios of Mercedes boot, the most important are our people. Our craftsmen are artists - some of the most talented in the business. They know that the people who wear Rios of Mercedes boots depend on the quality of the work they do. Each pair of Rios of Mercedes boots represents their legacy and our reputation. As co-owner Trainor Evans notes, “I like picking up old boots and remembering who made them…it is not just that these boots are handmade, but whose hands are making them.”
