RM Williams Boots - Everything You Wanted to Know - Page 195

post #2911 of 3962
I have a problem with my RM William boots. There is a slight color difference between the boots. Is this normal?

Please see photos on this link: http://imgur.com/a/gZf7i#7

The photos that I'm wearing the boots on is the closest to the reality in terms of color difference.

Would you return this pair of shoes?

Cant see much of a color difference in those pictures. With some wear and layer or two of shoe polish later i guess noone will notice the slight difference you will see.

I apologize for my first post being a negative one. I've lurked on these forums for some time. 

 

Does anyone have another good source for the RM Williams MTO? I spoke with Steve at Nungar via email to see if I could order a pair like the "forum special," but that was a bit of a dead end. It took some time to get a response, which was nothing more detailed than letting me know it would be upward of $400 AUS. That's significantly more expensive than it was when this thread was first posted, and the exchange rate to USD is no longer favorable. However, that's not the problem. After I told him I was still interested, Steve asked me if he could contact me in a week, as he was on vacation. It's now been almost 3 weeks and I've received no contact and no response to my subsequent email. I find that to be unacceptable.  

 

So I'm currently wondering if there is a source that can make something akin to the forum special, where I can actually place an order? Perhaps a supplier who is actually interested in a transaction where I give them money in exchange for footwear?

Try barry from bootsonline.com. Though I doubt he'd know what a 'forum special' is. You'll just have to spec the boot out the way you'd like. He was very responsive and professional.

My first email resulted in an immediate response with a request for my phone number so I wouldn't have to incur the long distance charges. I was concernd about not seeing 'https' on his site. Barry assured me his site is secure but took my cc info by phone (on his dime) to allay my fears.

My order was processed w/in 24 hrs and left his shop that day or the next IIRC. Shipping charges were nominal and I didn't get hit with any duties. I had my boots the same week, ordered Monday and arrived Fri. My next order a month or so later was exactly the same. Ordered on a Tues, package arrived on Sat. Since you are ordering a MTO, they won't be in stock but I'm sure he will process everything quickly.

I can't recommend Barry highly enough.

Also, give this place a try: http://www.portphillipshop.com.au/RM_Williams_Boots_Shoes_Mens_and_Womens.html

 

I was really happy with the service. You'll have to specify exactly what you want though (e.g. French veal calf with the brass screwed leather sole, etc.).

just bought a pair of rm williams craftsmen in black. Size 9f w leather sole.

 

I wear a orthotic insole with it and it fits really well with a thick sock.

 

Size 8 with and without the orthotic just did not work.

 

My only problem is i am getting a little bit of heel slip in the left boot. Right boot is a much more snug fit and my foot does not move much. 

 

Clearly my feet are not identical.


Should i worry about this?

I'll be heading to Toronto soon and will visit the outback boot co. Looking at either rm Williams turnout boot or gardener in brown as I prefer the rounded toe.

Anyone have experience with either? I read that the gardener is wax kip and doesn't polish very well?

I wouldn't worry about size difference. My rights foot is half size smaller than in left and in my Blundstones I wear the blue insole in left and orange (thicker) in right.

Just stack up another insole in the larger boot to make up the difference. You just don't want your foot too high in boot as it will rub against top of boot.

First pair of shoes I've ever had that actually fit my skinny feet.

Looks like the Macquaries with the narrow medium toe. Although, I thought the only last that has the E width is the Turnout, with the round toe. Is that what I'm looking at?

Also, can anyone ID the boot second from the left?

Has anyone had to get their shoes resoled? I'm thinking I might need to do that in the next year. Any suggestions?

The color appears to be Whiskey, but it doesn't look like the Craftsman model.
