RM Williams Boot Types Explained

 

Originally designed for a life of constant abuse in the merciless Aussie outback, RM William’s boots are exceptionally well-made. Handcrafted from a single piece of leather, there is just one invincible seam at the back of the boot.

 

RM Williams: Boot Making at its Best

Of course, there’s the raw materials. The single piece of leather, or the soft supple suede. Then there’s the design, the attention to detail in the Goodyear welting, the branded boot tugs, and the long clean lines. However, a pair of RM Williams boots is greater than the sum of its parts, because of the eighty pairs of hands it takes to make one pair of RM Williams boots.

Handcrafted is often a euphemism for hand-finished but at RM Williams the entire boot making process is performed by the skilled hands of craftsmen and women in Adelaide, Australia.

There are eighty steps in the process hence the phrase “eighty pairs of hands, one pair of boots”.

Given your RM Williams boots are likely to last you a lifetime it is worth taking a moment to ensure you choose the right boot. The key differences between the boots are the toe shape, the sole type, the leather upper and the finish.
