Hi guys, new here, and new to RMs.

 

I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with the "Signature Craftsman".

Anyone?

I haven't. I calf leather personally doesn't interest me as much as yearling and roo. 

post #3380 of 3962

I was just thinking about this- does anyone have a pair of the Craftsman in calf leather with the screwed sole, basically a "Forum Special" but on the Craftsman toe shape? 

 

I was thinking it would look good, especially if they round off the sole to follow the toe profile- which actually looks more rounded without the protruding sole squared off...

 

 

Post up pics maybe??

If you check out the made-to-order section of the catalogue, it asks for a trace of your foot as well as the measurements at the 'joint', 'lower instep', 'instep' and 'heel'.

 

I think the sleekest last on a chisel toe would be the craftsman with a nailed leather sole. Can't remember the exact last number for the craftsman though sorry.

^^ IIRC, member tez mulan had a pair of craftsmen with a screwed sole. Search his posts in this thread you should find a pic.

Has anyone ever had the size of a boot altered when resoling? I have 2 pairs in 8.5G and they are a very close fit. I thought they were perfect for a few months but when worn all day my toes get a bit squashed. I have also noticed since stretching there is excess room in the width which demonstrates itself with slight bulging of the leather below the ankle along the foot. I got them both from the RM shop and measured with the sales person but I think they are a tad short and a bit wide. 

 

I can persevere with them until resole time but look forward to having a better fit...

 

When I get a resole I am going to ask them to turn them into a 9F. Anyone done this before?

I recall that a couple of people had RMs relasted in a different width (i.e. they changed a G width to an F width) but not sure about the length.

 

Might as well ask!

I think I wrote about my impressions of them a few pages back...

Essentially very nice boots but I'm not sure they're worth the premium over the regular craftsman models.

Cheers, thanks for that.

Must've have missed your post initially in the 200+ pages!

 

hmm im still thinking about getting them.

I had two pair relasted half a size down (9.5 to 9) worked very well. They also offered to do the width but I didn't need it ,and mentioned they can do 1/2 size in either direction. So yes it can be done, they charged me $150 each including shipping both ways which I think is very fair. Call the store in Manhattan they ship out at the beginning of each month.

Thanks Guys. I am in Sydney so too easy regarding stores/shipping. I'll get it done when the sole wears out.

Does anyone use Saphir pommadier on their chestnut boots? I'v been looking at the colour bordo but i'm wondering if i can get a better color

post #3389 of 3962

I've finally gotten my Macs, and while there seems to be a lot of creasing, I am enjoying them. However, I'm looking to use them when there is light rain. I have obenaufs heavy duty lp, but then the boots will be forever dulled. Does anyone use any sort of waterproofer that can take a shine. Montana pitch, perhaps?

First post here - could someone please post pics and/or measurements of an RM Williams ankle opening? I bought a pair or lower-end Chelsea boots and the ankle is too loose provide me good support.

Thanks!
