zhenjie's RM Williams FAQs:
Q: Can I trust Every Australian
A: Yes, they've been an official RM William stockist for decades and have a warehouse located in Moorabbin, VIC. Their service and shipping are head and shoulders above Nungar (another popular retailer who sold RM Williams cheap year-round).
Q: What's the difference between the Dynamic Flex Craftsman vs the Classic and Comfort models?
A: The Dynamic flex has a combination leather/rubber sole and a very supportive removable insole. You can use orthotics in these boots if you have them. The Classic Craftsman has a leather outsole and insole. The Comfort Craftsman as a rubber outsole and fixed 'comfort' insole.
For me personally, the Dynamic Flex is the most supportive and comfortable Craftsman around.
Q: What colour should I get?
A: The Chestnut Yearling is the recommended colour for your first RM Williams Craftsman boot. It offers the best versatility in most people wardrobe; you can dress it up or down. Ultimately the choice will come down to your aesthetic.
Dark Tan is a nice brown for casual and some formal occasions. It will scruff and show off marks more easily than the darker Chestnut brown.
Q: What size am I?
A: RM Williams is in AU sizes, similar to UK Sizing. Usually 1 full size down from US sizing/Brannock sizing. It's best to get fitted instore if you can, as a whole cut Chelsea boot will bit differently to normal shoes and boots. It takes into a lot of variables like your instep, shape & width of the foot, etc.
The G width is standard, similar to a D width US shoe. The H width is wider, similar to a US size E/EE width.
Q: OMG, why would I pay this much money for boots when I can get $50 ones from Rivers
A: It's all about the long term investment. RM William boots are Goodyear welt constructed, allowing you to resole and recrafts the boots when required. The Dynamic Flex soles should last a few years of decent year, mine is 3 years and still going strong, due for a resole next year ($160, cheaper if you use 3rd party cobblers). There are many examples of people wearing RM Williams even after 50 years.
RM William boots also hold their value, unlike other brands. Second-hand pairs can sell for $150-$400 depending on their condition.
Q: Are RM Williams boots truly Australian?
A: Yes, the Craftsmen line is made in South Australia. The RM Williams brand has recently transferred back to Australian ownership, under Andrew 'Twiggy' Forrest's investment company.
Q: Older RM Williams were built better back in the good ole days!
A: Perhaps, but the current Craftsman boots still represent excellent value, quality and materials, especially at this price.
Q: What makes this such a good deal?
A: The lowest you previously got RM William's Craftsman Boots for is $445 + shipping from Nungar Trading Co. Nungar is known for their poor service and long wait times and have now lost their rights to sell RMs. The usual 'street price' for RM Williams boots online is $505 to $545 from most retailers now. RM William Factory Seconds retail for $450 at their outlets, and usually have defects/issues and a hole punched through them. The Colour, Size and width selection available make this a very good sale (the best I've seen in decades).
