RM Williams Boots - Everything You Wanted to Know - Page 133

post #1981 of 3908
I'm curious about how the Williams' whiskey colored boots age.

There aren't enough well worn pics of that color in this thread. Anyone have some aged / distressed / patinated whiskeys they can put up on the boards?

I'm considering making a whisky purchase soon, and would love to see how they might mature.

Does the Turnout model with round toe has a wider fit than the Craftsman?

I didn't have mine for long but they seemed almost impervious to age. The colour was a little dead and it was tough to work a deeper patina into them.

If I were to buy the boots again I would beat the shit out of them before they touched my feet. Maybe bury them in the yard for a week or so.

The bushman with rounded toe fits about the same as the craftsman except for the slightly tighter toe box, I don't know about the turnout personally, but I'd assume it's about the same.

I tried to order size 7.5G online from a shop with a good deal currently (see my earlier post) but they did not have that size in stock, only size 7G. Yesterday I was in London so I went to the RM Williams shop and tried on the Craftsman and to my surprise the 7.5G was slightly too large, the 7G was a better fit. These will be my only shoes in UK size 7, every other pair from C&J to Grenson to Churchs are all size 7.5 UK. I had a pair of C&J Dartmouth in UK size 7.5 on at the time and when I put the Craftsman sole to sole, the 7.5G Craftsman was 0.5 to 1cm longer. Anyway, I have reordered size 7G online and wait to see of they still have stock.

Update: notified that Chestnut Yearling Craftsman have been despatched to me today in size 7G, Price €150 plus €25 delivery from Ireland to France. A good deal on offer from O'Briens Saddlery in Ireland.

Hello, I want to order some boots online (no RM Williams in the Middle East). I've had Craftsman, and will probably stick with this style.., got a some Qs


1. how do you get a boot with less of a sole lip - is it a special type of order?

2. what's quality diff between veal and kangaroo? and why would you want one over the other?

3. have bootsonline.au got any competiton?

4. what's the verdict on buckle boots, like the Stockman? I saw some in JM Weston store and I thought they looked great..., only they were £420

What's the best place to order these shoes? Do they ever go on sale?

Lefty, thanks for that.

I got this comfort craftsman in 'distressed leather' instead. I'm not sure yet if I sized them correctly; I went with the same size that i take in regular craftsmans and they are a touch tight up front. Love the look and feel of the leather, and hope they mold to my foot so I can keep them.

Wow, those look great. Distressed leather in Chestnut I'm guessing? Or was it another shade of brown?

The photos don't pick up the color very well. They're basically a combination of dark gray and brown. I believe Williams has a color in suede called 'silt', which is what these look like to me.

These aren't suede, but they do have a fine nap that shows more gray or more brown depending on how it's rubbed. This leads to a kind of streaking, textured look. So far I've found it to be a much better casual boot than my yearling Williams, which I think look too dressy / beautiful for my usual streetwear.
