LM Boots History
Over a century ago, LM Boots embarked on a journey fueled by passion and a desire to craft the world's finest handmade custom riding boots. It all started when Francisco Rivas, in the early 1900s, had the privilege of being trained by a skilled Italian shoemaker who had made his home in Ecuador. Inspired by this master craftsman, Francisco honed his skills and began creating exquisite boots that quickly gained recognition for their exceptional quality.
As time went on, their dedication to the art of bootmaking remained unwavering, and each passing generation took up the mantle to carry forward this rich tradition. Today, they proudly stand as the fourth generation of the Rivas family to be at the helm of their beloved company. From Francisco's humble beginnings, LM Boots have expanded our reach to cater to the diverse needs of our customers worldwide.
Throughout the years, our commitment to craftsmanship and attention to detail have never wavered. Every pair of boots that leaves their workshop is a testament to the unwavering pursuit of excellence. It is this unwavering dedication that has earned the trust and loyalty of riders and equestrian enthusiasts across the globe.
In the heart of their family business lies Sonia Rivas, the pioneering woman who became the first female shoemaker in Ecuador. Her unwavering determination and passion for the craft broke barriers and set the stage for the new era of female artisans in their family. Today, her legacy lives on as Isabel and Alejandra, the newest generation of talented shoemakers, continue to carry the torch, infusing their unique perspectives and expertise into each pair of LM Boots.
As we look back on their remarkable journey, we are filled with gratitude for the countless riders who have chosen LM Boots as their trusted companion.

The Care Ritual
Cleaning and Maintenance:
To maintain the beauty and longevity of your LM Boots, regular cleaning and maintenance are crucial. The experts recommend gently wiping your boots with a damp cloth after each ride to remove any dirt or sweat. Additionally, using specialized leather cleaners and conditioners will help keep the leather supple and nourished.
Hydration and Protection:
Just like your skin, leather requires hydration to retain its softness and flexibility. Applying a high-quality leather moisturizer or conditioner regularly will prevent the leather from drying out and cracking. Moreover, protecting your boots from excessive moisture and exposure to direct sunlight will help preserve their pristine condition.
Proper storage is essential for maintaining the shape and integrity of your LM Boots. LM Boots recommends using boot trees or stuffers to support the structure and prevent any creasing. Storing your boots in a cool, dry place away from extreme temperatures and humidity will further safeguard them from unnecessary wear and tear.
Investing in a pair of LM Boots goes beyond acquiring exquisite riding footwear. It is a commitment to craftsmanship, comfort, and longevity. By following the art of fitting and caring for your LMBoots, you can ensure that they not only provide you with unparalleled riding performance but also become cherished companions throughout your equestrian journey.
