Thus, we went to the source. We sought out the origin of the footwear which is so well-known and well-loved today: León, Mexico. Known as the Cowboy Boot Capital of the World, this city is world renowned for its premium quality leathers and hides and its master craftsmen. It was there that the first cowboy-style boots were made for the first cattle ranchers, known as vaqueros, in the 1700’s, and it was there that the tradition of the cowboy boot was born. Since that era, the name León has become synonymous with a heritage of excellence that exists nowhere else in the world—a heritage that lives on in every pair of RUJO Boots.
When you lift the lid on a box of new RUJO’s, you are unpacking over two hundred years of American history, distilled and refined into the ultimate example of the modern cowboy boot. Savor it. Be it. Be Brave.
Stunning water resistant Sentry suede in three colors makes the Canyon an all-weather winner.
At RUJO, we are driven by the conviction that everybody should be able to afford a great pair of cowboy boots, if they wish. However, achieving a price point that blows our competitors out of the water requires rethinking how people buy cowboy boots. This is why RUJO only exists in two places: on our website and on our customers’ feet. There are no middlemen, no markups, and no storefronts; every part of your boots’ journey from the factory to your door is completed by members of the RUJO team. This method allows us to keep prices low and go the extra mile after lesser companies have already hung up their spurs.
This stunning full-belly caiman boot exudes luxury and refinement.
RUJO Rock Ranch weathered calfskin and a timeless roper shape make The Davis a fan favorite.
The Goodyear Welt is universally considered to be the gold standard in shoe construction, allowing the boots to be resoled repeatedly over time, guaranteeing a lifetime of use for your RUJO boots.
Lemonwood is special because it behaves almost exactly the same as leather when it is exposed to water. Using lemonwood to peg the outsole to the rest of the boot helps preserve the integrity of the boot in all conditions.
The RUJO-stamped rubber heel cap guarantees strength and offers improved traction on smooth walking surfaces, so that you can always put your best foot forward.
RUJO heels are made using the traditional stacked leather technique, which offers the best combination of elegance, durability, and comfort.
Our proprietary Cloud Walk Memory Foam cushioning lines the insole of each of our boots, promising a perfect, comfortable fit.
We line the interior of all our boots with an ultra-soft layer of our Legacy calfskin, which results in an attractive, polished appearance that is soft and smooth from the very first step.
Our motivation to start RUJO was kindled by our passion for western boots. After all, as native Texans, we were practically born wearing them. After lifetimes of being forced to choose from selections of overpriced and underbuilt boots, we decided to make with our own hands what we had always sought, but never found before. The results speak for themselves: a collection of western boots that is proudly Texan, but still stays true to the rich history which begot it. Every pair of RUJO Boots is uniquely authentic—a perfect blend of tradition and modernity—and designed right here in our hometown of Dallas, Texas.
These principles of authenticity, quality, and selfless service guide everything we do at RUJO, and we hope that you see them reflected in every pair of boots we sell. Thank you for your business and for being a part of the RUJO family.
