Is it possible to get the Macquarie boot in tan or rum anymore? I've looked on the sites that are usually mentioned as sellers, but it seems they only do black and chestnut.

For anyone in Sydney. There is a 50% off sale at Paddington Town Hall this weekend. I just scored 2 pairs of shoes for $450!

Mainly shoes and they are going fast.

Hi - wondering if someone can offer an opinion here on which model/last to think about.  After a few years I've decided to take a plunge on RMW.  I've tried just about every chelsea on the market that is sub $500 and they just don't fit - largely b/c of my long narrow foot.  I wear a 12.5C or 13B in most AEs and (point of reference) a 12A in Alden Van last.  

 

Here's where I could use some advice - on such a large size the elongated toe of anything with a chisel (I think) tends to look a little "clown shoe"ish.  Any thoughts on which of their chelseas to give a look a look at?

 

thanks

Does anyone know what the future status of Nungar and Bootsonline as a future RM Williams retailer? Are they going to increase their prices to the same level as other stores or stop selling altogether?

From Dieworkwear:

"The store I bought from tells me that RM Williams is looking to cut off their small stockists, forcing customers to buy at a higher price point. In the US, ready-to-made boots go for about $500; made-to-order (what RM Williams misleadingly calls bespoke) starts at $800. I imagine these changes are coming from the top brass at LVMH (RM Williams’ new parent company), who want to turn an outback bootmaker with a good heritage story into a global luxury brand. Hard to justify those prices when your smaller distributors are undercutting you."

Beautiful collection Dan1255,

 

It looks like they don't sell those Bordeaux Burnished Kintore's in that nice brown leather anymore. 

 

Black or now suede. I wish they still did it in that brown leather!

 

Also, I note that Macquarie only seems to come in Black or Chestnut? Can anyone who has been in a store confirm this?

 

What happened to Rum, and Tan?

What happened to Rum, and Tan?

Rum will be available in September with lead time to late October/November. I'm getting a comfort craftsman with rum in an 8F made via nungar and they advised me of the above.

Hi there,

 

I wonder if you had a chance to ask the colour of the second boot from the left on the bottom row? They look very similar to a new bordeaux colour in oiled, distressed leather that seems to be available from some English retailers but is not yet listed on the RM Williams website.

I did! I saw a crocodile black and white pair. It was amazing.

 

Just beautiful boots everywhere.

 

I just wish everything was less pricey. Ever since LV bought the place, it's basically half a grand just to buy into a starting pair. I know I am stating what is already well known.

 

Lucido - I won't be back there for a couple of weeks, if I do go back in I will try to remember and let you know.

Hi @mojito33, there are still some Bordeaux Kintore's around, I just saw a pair today in the Sydney George st store.

Keep in mind though that they are a seasonal colour, so there may only be limited sizes left. If you want some & know your size, I'd say go for it and get your local store to search the network.

 

On another note, the black Kingaroy lace up boots have had to go back to RMW. The actual shape of the heel cup is terrible and essentially was cutting into my ankle bone every time I took a step.

 

Not sure if it has anything to do with them being made in Romania, but I'm going to swap them for another pair of craftsman boots. Don't really need, or want another pair as I really had my heart set on a lace up boot.

 

Oh well, at least I know what I'm getting with the Aussie made boots and RMW customer service has come through with flying colours.

how is sizing on these compared to alden barrie last?

Newest addition to my footwear collection - Comfort Craftsman in Mid-Brown Suede. A quick blast of suede protector spray and then packed away, ready to be pressed into service come the autumn.
