Stepping out of the Tricker's circle for a bit with my 20 year old (?) Craftsman which I posted about back in March.

Still that little bit of nastiness about them from my first walk in March just after getting the gores replaced :butbut:, maybe, possibly get them repaired now that the cobblers might be open.

I'm trying to ID an eBay pair. If there's a W on the bottom of the sole, women's model? Thanks!

I recently had an EG 82 in size uk 9, was too small by half a size (the convention apparently) whereas RM are TTS. G fitting will be fine for medium feet. I have a couple of H which are handy for thicker socks.
Thank you. Can anyone share his experience? Here is my original question:

Can anyone kindly compare sizing on the Gardner and Turnout Comfort with their Carmina (eg, Rain, Inca, etc lasts) or Edward Green or Gaziano Girling sizes?

I am particularly interested in hearing from those who wear average widths.

Hi guys, I've started trying to find another pair of RM williams boots (14D/E on a brannock device). I have very large feet and found that the 13G comfort craftsman and comfort turnout are both a little short in length.

I just managed to order in a 13.5G comfort turnout and to my surprise, they're still too short. I think the toebox is too tapered and so even though there's about a thumb's width to the end of the boot, my toes bump into the end as it tapers downwards.

Has anyone here had to size up one full size to accomodate this boot? I might be able to find a 14G somewhere in the UK but I'm worried at that point the boot will be enormous.

Thank you

Hi guys,

I've got a question about first time wear for the RM Williams veterans out there. I've acquired three new pairs of RM Williams (the first pair was too comfortable, couldn't resist) and am curious if they should be cared for like my other shoes/boots.

Do you apply a layer of shoe polish prior to your first wear or do you find conditioning with the RM Williams conditioner to be enough protection/shine?
