RM Williams Boots - Everything You Wanted to Know - Page 50

post #736 of 3963
Funny to see this topic bumped today, as I just got my first pair of RM Williams boots!



I probably overpaid at £170 (UK prices being what they are), and I didn't realise they were such a well-known brand. But I've been after a decent, but more rugged, boot for some time and these appear to fit the bill nicely.

Apologies, but I've attempted to wade through the 30 pages of post and am a bit lost. Could someone please suggest a proper size to order RMW Boots if I normally wear a regular 8.5 in US size? Also, what's the proper link to order the FSM Chelsea Boot from?

Everything you need to know to order, including sizing, is on the first page. There's no link; you have to get in touch with Steve at Nungar. The FSM does not "exist." It is an invention of Sator of which RMW has no knowledge. Steve does know about it.

+1 Looks like a craftsman (or two) to me.

Craftsman in Chestnut Yearling, yes.

Sorry if this was discussed in the previous voluminous post.

I just got my second pair of Craftsman. The first pair (Kangaroo craftsman), I picked up in Oz. This pair I ordered from Steve Nungar. I ordered the Comfort Craftsman. I was under the impression that by ordering the Comfort model, the boot would come with rubber soles, since the Comfort Craftsman I tried on in the RW Williams store in London did indeed have rubber soles. But that's not the case. The boots I received from Steve are not rubber.

Was I mistaken or did he get the order wrong?

Thanks!

If it was my mistake, does anyone want to buy an unused pair of 9G Whiskey Comfort Craftsman?

They should have neoprene soles and a padded insole.

Hmm. Do they have a padded insole?
post #746 of 3963
No, they don't have a padded insole. Same insole as my other Craftsman. The box they came in is marked "MTO Elastic Sided Whiskey Yearling" B542Y.07FGCW09. That's what's on the invoice as well. However I kept a copy of the web order and it does it says- Product Code\t \tNTB543Y\t Quantity\t \t 1 Product Name\t \tComfort Craftsman\t Size\t \t9G\t Colour\t \tWhiskey They definitely are not what is shown in Lefty's picture, which is what I was expecting.

I have a physical catalog at home which has a diagram of the difference, I believe the difference is in the actual midsole or underneath the socklining and not in the outsole material, I will double check tonight and let you know.

You did not get what you ordered, but rather the plain-old Whiskey Craftsman.
