Does anyone have any experience with Baxter boots?
The leather on my Craftsman is starting to give where my little toe is. due to their price I'm looking at trying a pair of the Baxter Saddlers due to the recent inflation of RM Williams prices.Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Oli - no idea why you are asking me. I don't know whether to be flattered or insulted. I am not a squatter and do not wear 'lastic sided boots.
Many years ago when I was on a a farm and owned a semi trailer I wore RMWs for work and they were good boots.
I am of the opinion that RMWs are over priced to buggery for real work boots these days.
I mostly cleaned them with Kiwi nugget.
I do currently have 2 x pairs of RMWs in the back of my cupboard. They are a sad relic of my rock dog years - sporting cuban heels.
One pair are black Santa Fe's and the other a brown round toed model. I no longer wear them.
However were a Carson, Mondo Rock, JJ Zep, Spectrum, AC/DC, Country Radio, Dead Livers, Madder Lake tribute band to play at the local RSL Parma & Pot night - I may well slip the black Sant Fe's on over my arthritic feet under my black skinny jeans and combine with my Sabbath T Shirt and leather jacket and venture out.
As long as the gig was over by 9.30pm.
Of the Baxters - I have no knowledge. Although I hear OK things about them.
