Anyone who finds the idea of luxury hiking boots off putting, look away now. All of you left, we’d like to introduce these Rider Ottawa Boots. Ron Rider’s company is a small family run operation based in Richmond Virginia. Produced by Calzaturificio Cortina in Northern Italy with leathers sourced from American, Italian and French tanneries, this is a company focused on offering a bit more of a personal service.
This particular model was created with the help of legendary Italian maker Borgioli and are available in hand finished cognac or espresso French calf. Norvegese construction, this comes with a lightweight Vibram sole. They may look pretty but these can with stand a bit of hardcore walking. Leather Soul has them.
