post #2656 of 3786
Perhaps because it darkens leather....?

What are you getting at? If there's some other maybe damaging effects please let us know!

fully lined is nicer. i can't think of any reason not to get them fully lined. probably the only reason they don't normally fully line the work boots is to cut costs.

What are some of the lower cost online shops that carry RM Williams boots? I know about the following: Nungar Boots Online Aussie Bush Hats I swear I found another site a week or two ago with prices in the $250-range (USD), is there some site that I am missing? Also, does anyone have any comments on how the Craftsman (or CC) fits with slim chinos or trousers (i.e. 7.5-8" hem)?

Does the 5% discount when ordering still count for styleforum members? If so, when ordering, how do you get this discount through the ordering page? EDIT: Also, the email adress nungar@dragnet.com.au is outdated I think? steve@nungar.com.au is the correct one now, right?

i'd recommend:

comfort turnout in brown vesta (you can also get black vesta)



or gardener/yard boot in vesta, but only if you need the extra grip. if you got this MTO, you could probably get the standard gardener/yard boot sole with a leather heel. it would look a lot better than the standard rubber heel.

i have the yard boot in distressed black:


distressed black = nice!

I also want to know this, please, someone must know...

I sent emails to both Bootsonline and Nungar regarding some questions, and only got answer from bootsonline. Gone 5 days now and I've even sent a new email to Nungar trading, but they are not responding. Not very good first impression of their trustworthiness.

If I send an email to a internetstore and get no reply, I usually ens up buying the ware somewhere else. Bootsonline and Nungar prices are nearly the same, so you'll end up buying from the one with best customer support.

I have tried the RM Williams Craftsman today and want to buy it online. Problem is that I really want it with rubber sole, since we have up to around minus 10 celsius here and snowy weather. I can't seem to buy rubber soled RM williams online, but they had them with rubber sole the store near me. I don't think the store have layed rubber sole themselves on all the RM williams shoes so... Bootsonline can get me RM williams with rubber sole without much hassle? Btw, black kangaroo or black calf?

Hi Rankiz, kangaroo or calf , tricky one, I just bought the stockman buckle boot in black calf leather it has a great finish and looks great ,but i only decided on the calf as the shop only had calf leather in stock, so i don't know which i'd choose if i had had the choice. I have bought boots from Barry at bootsonline in the past and the service was great, very friendlyand he even rang me at home in the UK to make sure the payment details were correct. I'd recommend him.

Ye, Bootsonline do atleast answer emails. Weeks gone and no answer from Nungar Trading. RM williams cost half the price if I buy from Australia, but on bootsonline I can not seem to find rubber sole boots. I mean, I live in Norway(cold) and it would be nice to have rubber soles. Is this something I can just get a shoemaker to lay on top of the leather(but this can make the leahter sole rat) or does RM williams Craftsman ACTUALLY come with rubber sole also? Because the RM williams shoes in the store had rubber soles.

I have been reading through this huge thread but haven't been able to find a clear answer - do any Canadians have experience ordering from bootsonline.com? What is the story re: customs / duties? Thanks in advance.

Rankiz: Does not the 'Comfort Craftsman' have a 'rubber' sole? Or are you looking for some other kind of material? http://www.bootsonline.com.au/b543N.htm If you don't wan't the new fangled insole material, do as the site says and select the 'Blaxand' ordinary insole from the drop-down options. Is this sole sufficient for inuslation from the cold? I honestly cannot say as the two countries I live in never get as cold as Norway :P There are other sole options, but such combinations might be made to order and thus take a few weeks, but, they might stand up better in your nordic winters. Perhaps, if you are looking for a 'winter boot', have a look at the Lachlan: http://www.bootsonline.com.au/b578.htm It's got the Craftsman's chiesel toe, but a different leather (which is apparently more waterproof) and soles that might just be better for walking on icey streets (all those treads must contribute something, right?). I don't know, snow being as strange to me as sleet or even hail really. You'll be the better judge.
