Don Francisco Rivas decided to set up a small boot shop on the corner of Cuenca and Mideros streets in the city of Quito, Ecuador. The first boots made in that small shop were the start of what La Mundial is today.
His son, Roberto Rivas, joined in the manufacturing of the boots while maintaining the trade secrets of his father.
Roberto’s daughter, Sonia Rivas, entered the business, becoming one the first women in the country involved in the shoe manufacturing business.
More than a century has passed since the first pair of boots was made, and La Mundial has delivered superior quality boots to more than one million customers.
Now Roberto Rivas II continues the tradition exemplified in their motto: “Made-to-order quality hand-crafted footwear”.
