More than 70 years ago, Reginald Murray Williams began to make bush saddlery and boots while camped in South Australia’s remote Gammon Ranges. Here, R.M. first met “Dollar Mick” Smith, an itinerant saddler, and after much trial and error, fashioned his first pair of stockman’s riding boots. Since these early beginnings, the company has developed a world-wide reputation as a quality maker of boots and accessories.
It all starts with the leather. R.M. Williams selects the finest hides and creates each upper using one –– one! –– piece of leather. It is much more difficult to make a boot this way which is why R.M. Williams is the only bootmaker in the world who does it. Count the number of seams on any boot –– at any price –– three, four, six? That’s just not cutting leather, that’s also cutting corners. R.M. Williams boots have only one smooth seam. R.M. then lines the inside each boot with butter-soft leather. It take 65 hand-held steps and a full week to make an R.M. Williams boot. The result is uncommon comfort from the first step that gets better through the years of pure walking pleasure. And here’s the ultimate in footwear. Let R.M. craft a custom-to-measure boot for you for only a small additional charge. Please enquire.
Australia’s most popular saddle dressing can be used universally to preserve, condition and nourish all leather products. Boots love it, but don’t be afraid to spread it around.
