I buy my boots at the twice-yearly stocktake clearance at Adelaide - I think they have similar sales in other Australian capital cities. Generally there's slim pickings of anything comfort/dynamic flex, but plenty of Blaxlands and my much-loved Greasy Kip Craftsmen (by the amount they have on stocktake, this view is not widely shared by RMs customers!)Boots online offers boots a good $100 ($70 if you need to add GST) below RRP if you have something particular in mind.
I think so. I have a 9H in the Greasy Kip Craftsman, which is a perfect fit. My Blaxlands are 9 1/2G, but they're maybe a touch too big (with really thin socks they're a little uncomfortable).
Great choice. I have the Greasy Kip Craftsmen, which are pretty much the same thing but with a darker upper and light soles. They were throwing them away at the clearance sales, so a nabbed a pair on the cheap. I love them with jeans and chinos - they're a little more rugged and less refined that the finished leather boots, which is IMHO a good thing for a semi-casual shoe.

Hi guys, I picked up my first pair of RMs (Black Blaxlands - love 'em) at the yearly clearance sale about a month ago here in Adelaide. Now I want a brown pair to go with them. Does the RM Factory at Salisbury or the Museum at Percy St sell seconds boots all year round? I don't think I can wait a whole year for the clearance sale to come around again...and my pair of seconds Blaxlands are so good I don't really want to pay retail for a second pair. On a more...
