RM Williams Boots - Everything You Wanted to Know - Page 249

post #3721 of 3893

I will be putting up two pairs of RM Williams Suede Comfort Craftsman boots in size 11G on Ebay in the next day or two as I am heading back to London from Abu Dhabi and have too much stuff. Pictures attached.

 

The dark brown suede boots are 3 weeks old and have been worn twice and the tan suede boots are 5 weeks old and have been worn about 5 times. PM me with a sensible offer if you're interested; happy to do a deal on both pairs together.

 

 

 

 

 

The pictures don't do them just and were hurriedly taken this morning.

They look damn nice, especially the dark brown!

I'm an 11F. :sad:

I have a pair of the dark brown suede although I think that they're just the regular craftsman. I'd love a pair of those (and several others) with the rubber souls for casual / to beat up. I thought about Blundstones but I think that the fit is pretty different.

Looks more like dissecting than recrafting to me...

My RMW . I thought sizing was a bit off. I am a TTS us 8 EEE . Carminas I wear uk 8 in rains and forest lasts. Loake uk 8.
These RMW are 8.5 G ! Tried on a 7.5 G was a bit tight on my left pinkie . And got the 8.5G. The store was packed and I thought I bought 8G only today at work realised they were 8.5. But the fit is very comfortable.

Does RM Williams do any roughout boots or is it all just suede?

I believe all of them are split suede. They are fully lined with leather, so you do have smooth leather facing the inside as you would have on a roughout, but it is two separate peices.

Do RMW process their own leather? If they do, then I wonder what the use the other side of the hide for. Their boots are full grain right?

I'm not sure whether they process their own leather, they definitely have some unique leathers that I have never seen used by other companies, so maybe they do. I have no idea what they use the other side for. Maybe they sell it, maybe they split it at a point where the othet half is still thick enough for their boots. But I doubt, splitting it that far from the grain would give them the fine, nice suede that they use. And yes their smooth leather boots are full grain.

Looking for a pair of dressyish boot to wear on my mortorcycle to commute to work. Currently wearing a pair of Ferragamos as I don't want to mess up my good boots but I remembered R.M. Williams and thought that they would be perfect. I need something with non-slip soles but reasonably dressy that won't get too beat-up looking too soon.

Any suggestions on a particular model and where to KOP inexpensively? Need the ability to return in case they don't fit right.

Thanks!

Probably better off getting a pair of blundstones for that.

I just got my first pair of RM Williams—the Macquarie. Unlike most shoes I buy, I want these to get real beat up and worn in. Other than wearing the crap out of them, anything else I can do to facilitate their breaking in? Should I—gasp!—eschew shoe trees?

Took me about four months of regular wear to break in my calf Macquaries. Use shoe trees and conditioner to help soften the leather.
