RANCH ROAD was born out of love for freedom and the great American West. Their mission is to create leather goods with style and quality that can last forever. Having launched in January of 2012, the brand has quickly evolved from its modest custom boot-making roots in Texas to a Ready-to-Wear collection sold direct-to-consumer through the company’s website. Future plans for growth include premium wholesale distribution (Fall 2019). Ranch Road Boots are handcrafted in Spain and are undeniably luxurious. Each boot is crafted from start to finish by expert boot-makers who use traditional boot lasts, Goodyear welt construction, cork foot beds, and the highest quality leathers from small tanneries in the mountains of Spain. In addition to being extremely durable, these leathers are prized for their unique character that develops with daily use and abuse, creating a distinct patina specific to each pair. There are over 250 steps to make each pair of Ranch Road boots—most of these are done by hand. Founded by Sarah Ford, a San Angelo native, a former Marine, and a Harvard Business School Grad, the brand is deeply rooted in her unique path. From spurs to combat boots, Sarah served in Iraq, Afghanistan and 29 Palms. Paying homage to her years of Marine Corps service, Sarah donates proceeds from every purchase to the Injured Marines Semper Fi Fund and has a program making boots for amputees.
