Any pics? Also, no one seems to have any info for this - any idea what colour "spice suede" is in real life?

Would like to know where to get these. I think there are a couple of Craftsman MTO. What do you think they cost? My local RMW dealer says he can´t get them, but it can´t be right, can it?

This is a picture of the cinnamon in the Aspley slide but it comes in Craftsman too.

I have received my first pair of RMW, comfort chestnut Turnouts. They are nearly new (from forum member Biggen). I'm impressed by the craftmanship! The rubberized soles are OK, though they squeak too loudly for my taste.

How do you get a shine on the leather? I've used the RMW polish (it smells like gouache paint in contrast to all other polishes) but it doesn't really shine up like normal dress shoe leather. I've also tried Saphir but it's only marginally better. I'm not aiming for a mirrorshine, but surely there is more to be had?

Great, thank you. Found Spice, too ( http://www.rmwilliams.com.au/home.as...ECD6850AE70656 ) but not spice suede.

Looks like true-blue, dinky-die, ridgy-didge croc. Can of course be ordered but I wouldn't dare speculate on the price.


Cheers

I saw a pair in the RMW store on George Street in Sydney last year. Was over $1K as I recall.

I got my first pair of RMW yesterday: chestnut roo blaxlands, size 9G. They look great and I am really happy with them. But there's one question that I already asked a few pages back (namely here): do shoe trees stretch out roo leather out of shape? Because the rochester boot trees that I got are very 'powerful'...

Probably there is a hard plastic cone in the toe? Regardless you might want to size down on the boot tree if it's doing more than holding the sole flat while the boots dry out.

Love RM Williams - I did a tour of their factory some years ago and to see them make these amazing boots using all the traditional techniques is great!

These are crocodile MTO craftsman boots. They cost A$2,900 including GST. I saw a pair yesterday in the RM Williams store in Sydney. Your local supplier doesn't know what he is talking about. You can order them through the catalogue if you know your RM Williams size.

Hi all , new to the site, just got a new pair of Craftsmans made from willow leather with the nailed soles , they look great , the willow doesn't shine up like yearling leather but it also doesn't scuff as easily. I have a pair of suede Craftsmans in black and a pair in brown , a 15 year old pair of chestnut craftsmans for kicking around in and a pair of Ian harold Brumbys, I will try and post up some pictures.

Would love to see what the chestnut craftsmans look like after 15 yrs.

About two weeks ago I got my first pair of RM Williams boots: Kangaroo Blaxlands in chestnut, 9G. Lengthwise it is fine, however my small toe and the next one are slightly cramped. It is only a minor nuissance because it doesn't hurt even after wearing them a whole day. And the small toe isn't touching the toebox but the leather, so I guess the fit will become better with wear. But, if I get another pair of yearling craftsmans, I will take H width and not G.

So a question: is size H overall wider or only in the toebox?
