HAND LASTED CRAFTSMANSHIP
Rod Patrick Bootmakers® is proud of our perfected hand lasting process. As our forefathers created a fresh mold for each new client, so we have idealized in our master lasts. Each gender-specific last endured rigorous prototyping, balancing and wear testing until reaching perfection. Unlike most manufacturers' "efficient" machine lasting, our artisan craftsmen hand last each pair, offering a maximum fit, comfort and durability.
Channel Stitch construction builds the foundation for a superior boot. Rod Patrick Bootmakers® employs this technique, stitching the vamp, lining and welt to the ridge under the insole. Channel stitching is only performed by the best bootmakers, those who uphold the standard of crafting by hand. Our channel stitched insoles ensure a cool, lightweight, conforming fit which can only be experienced in the all-leather insole of a Rod Patrick boot.
LEMON WOOD PEG CONSTRUCTION
Never compromising in process, construction or components, Rod Patrick Bootmakers'® expert craftsmen use Lemon wood pegs to craft every Rod Patrick® boot. No less than 42 Lemon wood pegs are hand driven into each boot, securely locking the insole and the outsole together, ensuring the shank of a Rod Patrick® boot will never twist. This time-honored process assures durability of construction to last for years.
Rod Patrick Bootmakers® uses only pristine, flawless sections of leather to craft our boots. Top-grain leather is paramount to the comfort, quality and durability of each pair we make and we accept nothing less than perfection. Inferior leathers are often sanded, buffed, snuffed or otherwise corrected to remove imperfections, compromising the integrity of the boot. Rod Patrick Bootmakers® uses only perfect hides for our masterpieces.
