ok. however the rm williams boot trees look like shoe trees, so any generic shoe tree will do, right?

Any tree is better than no tree, but boots need boot trees. You can find them if you look around. Woodlore has a nice pair.

theres no substance behind this statement.

my shoe tree emulate the shape of the boot. the ankle portion are never bent so they maintain their upright and smooth shape. the trees do their job and the boots stay nice.

I'm glad shoe trees are just fine for you. I know they are for many others, too. I prefer a proper boot tree for my boots, though.

I ordered a pair they had my Size and they are around $100 less than the cheapest price I can get here in Australia! Postage included

Meant to say. Cultism deal

My cultizm boots shipped a few hours after I ordered. Great deal.

Does anyone have any pictures or experience comparing the the Macquarie and the "forum special"? What are the major differences (other than leather quality)? Pics would be really appreciated. emc894 is online now Report Post \tEdit/Delete Message

I think the boot/shoe tree distinction is a bit redundant - we just have to find a tree that has a toe-shape which closely imitates the last shape.

Getting a pair of comfort craftsman boots MTO in the very interesting camel leather. Can't wait!

EMC, Can't help with a direct comparison. I do have the Macquarie on a leather sole. Beautiful looking boot and is wearing well.

I am definitely interested in the boot. However, I tried on a boot with the same toe and higher heel in the New York shop (they did not have the macquarie) and the toe looked very "western".

Would you say the toe is exceptionally pointy?

Thanks for your help.

There is a plastic form in the toe of the boots, so I'm not sure you can do anything to hurt the toe shape.

^ ?
Not saying you'd hurt it.
A better fit to the last shape just helps in preventing deep creasing.

Just called Aussiebushhats and placed an order for Yearling Stockman buckle boots in an F fitting. They were very pleasant to deal with and said it should take just under a month. I did not get screwed soles because I think the buckle boots look slightly better without them.

Can you provide a link to more information on this leather? I can't find any mention of it on RM Williams website.

Please post pictures of the boot when you receive them as well, would be interested in seeing how they look.
