The construction process

Moreover their boots are long-lasting and resilient, carefully crafted from one singular piece of high-quality leather. 80 pairs of expert hands work on each pair. From selecting the leather and carefully stitching the boot to adding the finishing touches, R.M. Williams does it all by hand to ensure precision and quality.
R. M. Williams Comfort Craftsman Boots
One of R.M. Williams’ most popular dress boots, the iconic Comfort Craftsman combines practicality, comfort and style.

They boast a fully stitched and welted heel unit which allows for easy repair. No wonder it’s the number one best-selling boot in Australia!
R.M. Williams Rugged Leather Comfort Craftsman Boots
What sets this pair of boots apart from the rest is their rugged look. They feature ‘Crazy Horse’ leather; a full grain cattle leather that improves with age. They are supremely comfortable, thanks to their naturally waxed leather upper and rubber outsole as well as excellent arch support. The classic chisel toe and flat heel design are perfect for daily wear and special occasions.
R.M. Williams Kangaroo Comfort Craftsman Boots
Featuring the same classic design of the Comfort Craftsman boots, this pair instead sports quality kangaroo leather for extra durability.

It is the ultimate versatile boot, transitioning seamlessly between work, casual wear and formal occasions.
