Handcrafted - every pair custom made to measure, by hand, in our little factory (sweatshop free and proud of it)
Every step in the construction of our boots involves the touch of the human hand and all our boots are custom made for you. Bespoke, as it were.
Because if we can do it by hand why use a machine?
Who wants to contribute to the rise of the machines, do you? We didn't think so, neither do we.
Feed a family, not a machine, that's what we say.
Besides, a boot that will last long enough to become an old friend has to be properly made.
An important detail to consider
The Goodyear Welt process
This means the sole is stitched on, not glued, oh no no no, glued shoes go straight into the garbage when the sole wears out and that's a waste.
Sewing can be repaired, reused and reborn, again and again. Especially with our Cuacho Rubber soles.
The welt process requires skilled craftsmen who know the value of what they do.
At Red Frog we say non to waste and oui oui to keeping what you love for as long as you can.
Where we do what we do when we do it....
Leon in Mexico has been a center for boot manufacturing for centuries, it is a skilled tradition passed down through generations with pride and there are still small manufacturers (like us) who resist mass production.
Leon, Guanajuato, one of the few places left in this world where craftsmanship is valued and appreciated.
Even our boxes are made by hand from recycled cardboard by our most excellent friend Guadalupe...
