Rhino Footwear

Rhino Footwear Ltd

Rhino Footwear, a subsidiary of the Alam Group, was founded in January 2009 to produce high-quality gumboots for the East African market. Since then it has steadily progressed to become the leading manufacturer of durable, and appealing protective footwear in Uganda.

With our experienced design team, we work to create gumboots that are affordable for our market whilst still meeting international standards. So far, we have 3 types of gumboots, each with exact specifications but all with the same durability and comfort that Rhino has become famous for. We commissioned 2 state of the art PVC injection moulding machines and began production.

In February 2012 we commissioned a third machine to meet demand and launched a new product, the elegant Ballerina ladies shoe. This stylish open toe PVC shoe went through the same research and design process as our gumboots and has had a fantastic reception in the market.

Our quality has allowed us to expand our clientele into Uganda’s neighbouring countries such as Rwanda, Burundi, DRC and South Sudan. We strive towards offering quality footwear at affordable prices and soon we will be expanding our line again.

Mission Statement

To pursue excellence in manufacturing and marketing and provide protective footwear for the common man and professional in the civil and agricultural field.

Quality Assurance Policy

Rhino Footwear follows a Total Quality Management System which has been structured to ensure all processes are documented and monitored to ascertain that every product manufactured meets international standards.

Vision Statement

To be one of the most respected footwear manufacturing business in East Africa.


We strive for continuous improvement.

Manufactured in Uganda and designed to be strong and durable, our extensive knowledge, experience and pedigree in PVC production have resulted in Rhino Footwear becoming Uganda’s leading gumboot manufacturer. Our time-proven methods ensure that we produce gumboots that are strong, durable and 100% waterproof. All our boots come with an inner lining as standard and are available in the following colours;

Our boots come in three categories:

Heavy Duty: 
These are the heaviest, offering more protection and durability when used in construction environments. The sole is thicker to prevent penetration and the grip is suited to industrial applications. Ideal for use in construction and factories or environments where there is a lot of wear and tear.

Designed with agriculture in mind, these have deeper traction grooves in the sole to provide maximum grip. The traction grooves are directionally from heel to toe designed as V’s to ensure that you will not slip even in the harshest of terrains.

Tommy gumboots are the most affordable in the range whilst still offering the same quality and comfort that Rhino is known for. These are the lightest in the range and are useful for a multitude of applications. They are available in a glossy and matte finish and all of the colours that Rhino offers.

Ballerina Ladies Shoes: 
This stylish open toe PVC shoe features a bow tie on the front and several openings to keep your feet cool in our temperate climate. Easy to clean and long-lasting, the shoe is available in a multitude of sizes and colours. They are available nationwide in all Rhino outlets and are attractively priced for the local market. There are six colours, white, black, beige, grey, baby blue and pink and sizes are from one to nine.
