Barry from bootsonline.com is terrific. I ordered two pair of yearling craftsmen about 4 yrs ago (black & chestnut) and both are still wearing well, look like new and one of the most comfortable boots/shoes I own.

I noticed my comfort craftsmen were squeaking when i walked, annoying in a quiet office, after a bit of trial and error i discovered it was due to sweaty feet and cotton socks.  Now i only wear wool socks with my RM's and i have no sqeak.

x2. Your typical business socks are too thin and will cause too much movement.

Also helps that you're a black belt in shoe polishing, Patrick!

I think so. I have a 9H in the Greasy Kip Craftsman, which is a perfect fit. My Blaxlands are 9 1/2G, but they're maybe a touch too big (with really thin socks they're a little uncomfortable).

Is that the lady who used to be in 'V' ?

Yes, it is the actress Jane Badler.  Good eye!

Newbie here.

 

I recently bought my second pair of dynamic flex craftman boots through an online auction service. They are in mint condition and I couldn't be happier. However, unlike my other pairs of RMs, the size on the bottom of the soles are printed on and not embossed. Is this common?

Yeah, the size is printed on the soles of my pair of Comfort Craftsman (Craftsmen?). They are about a year old and came from a RM W's store. Not sure when the change happened.

Thanks. What a strange change for RM to make. I always expected the size to be embossed on the soles. It kind of made them unique. I have another pair of Dynamic Flex Craftman with the size embossed on the sole.

Very very late reply, but I posted my red ones here.

I am waiting on some Sandstone ones now. My last email to bootsonline bounced, a quick thank you for explaining a delay, hopefully that is just a full mailbox!

Aussies,

What's a cheaper and available alternative to the leather conditioner/stockman's polish RMW sells?
post #3089 of 3962
Anyone been able to change a deep creased toecap on their RMs? The plastic toepuff I mean. Simple replacement or full boot recraft? Mine have the screwed soles.
