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”.

It is our pleasure to present you this page that contains just some examples of our high-quality boot collection, which can be found in our store.

We hope that you will enjoy a pair of our boots, experience the fruits of our tradition, the comfort and the durability of our products.
