The Gleaners boots by Rolling Dub Trio are a prime example of what RDT do best. Take a classic boot style, exaggerate some aspects, make it very much their own and make it very well. The Gleaners are Western styled Chelsea/ Side Gore boots with a slightly beefed up frame in an elegant, slightly dressy Western style. They’re great.
The Kudo leather has a great texture and is Golden Tan with flecks naturally left on the animals skin, very non uniform with great depth. The leather is very hardy and yet very soft and pliable (slight spongy feel) and will shape to your feet extremely well, they are very comfortable out of the box and will only get better as the sole softens and shapes.
Constructions is top notch as always with RDT. Great components and they are hand sewn direct welted (upper to the mid sole) which creates a very nice looking more aggressive flat welt.
Made in Japan, please see sizing details.
The Rolling Dub Trio Gleaners boots are made on a low profile E Width last which actually fits more like a normal to slim in the mid foot D width. They are quite slim fitting throughout but due to the Kudo leather and style of the boot they will give quickly to shape to your foot.
