We were born out of love for the great American West. We make timeless and fine leather boots rooted in classic style with life lasting quality.
What started as a modest custom boot operation developed in San Angelo, Texas, has now grown into a collection of everyday staples, released twice a year, available direct to consumer and through select retail partners.
Our designs are inspired by American western culture, the gauchos of South America, and mid-20th century military styles.
We value individuality, honesty and freedom—and we hope that our designs inspire the same.
We make fine leather boots the old school way—handcrafted. Working with the best shoemakers in Spain with generations of experience and family-owned operations enables us to provide nothing less than premium craftsmanship in our designs. Rooted in western culture, we design timeless classics with a modern twist. We believe that you should never have to concede quality for price and follow a transparent pricing model that keeps us honest and trustworthy. Providing customers with exceptional value across every facet of our brand is our #1 goal.
There are over 250 steps to make each pair of Ranch Road Boots, and most of these are done by hand. Our boots are proudly handcrafted in Spain with nothing but the best quality in materials to last a lifetime. Our boots are authentically made by expert boot makers using certified old-school techniques, including traditional boot lasts (molds), Goodyear welt construction, and cork-filled foot beds. Ranch Road Boot leathers are sustainably sourced from small high-standard leather tanneries in Spain. Our leathers are extremely durable and develop a beautiful and unique patina over use and age.
It is important for us to deliver exceptional value in both product and price. We believe high-end designer boots don’t have to come at a premium marked-up price. We strive to keep pricing fair and are transparent about our true costs. By primarily selling direct to customer (online) we avoid much of the costly overhead that legacy brands carry enabling us to beat traditional retail markups.
We believe that the world we live in is a good as we make it. We are proud of the American roots that inspire our brand and value those who protect them. Our founder, Sarah Ford, is a proud USMC veteran and supports the Injured Marines Semper Fi Fund by donating proceeds from each Ranch Road Boots purchase.

Inspired by her granddad, West Texas roots, military background, and an appreciation of a global gaucho culture, Sarah designs timeless styles for the modern day. She believes boots are a staple to everyone’s closet, and her approach is to have fun creating handcrafted, premium boots at a fair and transparent price.
Through her boots, she hopes to inspire people to be 100% authentically themselves, embracing their individuality and unique paths.
