Rolling Dub Trio Gleaners Zip Boots – JP Box Calf

This product is currently out of stock and unavailable.

The Gleaners zip 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 zip boots with a slightly beefed up frame in an elegant, slightly dressy Western style. They’re versatile, comfortable, very stylish and popular.

The Japanese Box Calf leather is beautiful. It has a lovely lustre and a very high end feel. Customers tend to think that calf leather will be flimsy, this is not the case with this leather, it is thick, certainly thick enough for a tough boot, very pliable and we think will age to perfection. The Gleaners boots have a very glove like feel to them anyway but the leathers they choose really make them feel sturdy sock-like when on.

Constructions is top notch as always with RDT. The best components are used and the hand sewn direct welted (upper to the mid sole) construction is very neat, flat and handsome. The materials are the best out there, no shortcuts.

Made in Japan, please see sizing details as they are not for every foot.

  • Japanese Box Calf
  • Hand Stitched Direct Welt

  • Bootshop heels
  • Kip Leather Lined
  • Cushioned leather in-sole
  • Heavy Duty RDT branded Zip
  • Vibram 269 Western Outer Sole

  • D Width (See sizing info)

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 very low profile and shapely at the arches and circle of the heel (heel around ankle area – see last image) with a slim shaft so if you struggle with engineers and have a thicker ankle and heel area then they will likely be too difficult to get on. Once on they will give and shape nicely in that area so they won’t continue to be so difficult as the leather is soft and pliable
