Australian=UK=RMW, i.e. they are one and the same. Widths are, IMO, tricky. Your best option is to try and...

If you can get hold of one then a Fjällräven Expedition is, IMHO, your best choice. I've had mine since 1991 and it's still in perfect shape. They're expensive but worth every penny, cent or öre. Check out their website: www.fjallraven.se Cheers

The Craftsman on the B543 last is a classic. You can get it with leather soles, Goodyear welted or screwed (sleeker); with a composite sole (called the Blaxland but it's the same last) or a composite sole with the Comfort inner, both of these welted.

An MTO that can be configured with the same variety of soles as...
My photography "skills" don't do them justice but for what it's worth: On parade: from left to right 2xCC chestnut, CC mock croc, CC black, MTO Craftsman with screwed leather sole. All of these on the B543 last. Finally the B555 Macquaries with leather sole. The Comfort Craftsman Mock Croc The Macquarie B555 in chestnut Cheers
