      Best I could find was a deal from back in 2016 for $395 delivered - https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/272706, but I may be mistaken

        Wrong comment. Oops

      Cheapest ever at $310, although that seller is now banned for sockpuppeting. Good deal though.

        No point being the cheapest if you aren't going to get your boots. In another forum, a lot of customers got burnt from that store not receiving their orders with little communication.

      •  

        Wow, hell dodgy. Looks like the store doesn't even exist anymore though which is good.

      •  

        I got mine from here.
        Thought it was funny. They make them here, send them over to UK and ship them back here for cheaper haha.

        Great boots!

        •  

          Not surprising. I tried to enquire about buying RM boots for my staff as a combined order. The unit price was more expensive than buying from Nungar.

          I can only assume buying in bulk (ie. enough to fill a 40' container) would give you some sort of discount large enough that you could sell boots at a discount and still make a slight profit.

    •  

      is this legit? site seems iffy?

      •  

        Bought from them last year - $395 from memory. Very good to deal with (phoned them
        about an out of stock size and they sorted things out)

      •  

        This is an actual store.

        Years and years ago I picked up a pair on my way out east.

    •  

      lol

    $379 del last year OZB during blackfriday sales

    also, few years back, QFF had a sale for about $339ish + 2000 points.

    They said it was a pricing error but honoured the first batch of orders before it was flooded by ozb'ers

    •  

      Got mine out of that. It was glorious.

      • +2 votes

        general principle, if there's a 3 in front of the price, then it's generally a decent deal…but sub $350 and you're doing really well :D

    •  

      Actually it was $315 + 2000 points if I'm thinking of the same deal. Just checked my receipt. Such an awesome deal.

  •  

    thanks op, good price considering it's post rona prices đź‘Ť

  •  

    Good price.
    I got mine for ~$400 from ebay and i thought i did well then.

  •  

    Great price. Got mine directly from RM Williams site for $395 a couple years ago: https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/460101

    They're a distressed leather one, which give the boots more of a worn/matte look right out of the box. I didn't mind it at all. Still going strong 2 years later even with regular weekly use.

  •  

    Not bad. Pretty sad that Nungar no longer sell RMs too!

    • +1 vote

      It was a loss for the bargain hunters who bought from Nungar; service may not be Steve's priority but his prices were definitely sharp.

    •  

      That's the first I've heard! Since when did they stop selling?

      •  

        Not that long ago, just after Twiggy bought RMW and prices went up.

        •  

          It was in the works before the Twiggy take over and there have been no price rises on the RM Craftsman line in recent times.

  •  

    thanks OP got dynamic flex as i find them more comfortable than the comfort craftsman :)

    •  

      Do you wear orthotics?

  •  

    Decent price.. still out of my pay bracket unfortunately

  •  

    Thanks OP, got the Dynamic Flex

    •  

      Do you wear orthotics?

    Used to be able to buy them for low $400s every day from Nungar Trading but I've just now seen they are no longer able to stock RM Williams… :(

  •  

    How do these fit? is it best to get properly sized in store? or just go with my actual shoe size?

    • +4 votes

      Given the varying width and the price you're forking out, if you've got access to an RM Williams store, would highly encourage it.

      •  

        cheers for the help! will pop in to RM adelaide sometime.

      •  

        Only a non Melbourne person would write this right now.

    •  

      RM actually have a very in depth sizing guide which I used successfully to establish my correct size.

    •  

      The fit of these is super important. I'm a 10-11 in other shoes but a 9.5F in RM's.

      Go and get fitted, they have 3 widths and do half sizes so you're gona get something that basically fits like a glove.

    •  

      I just bought a pair recently.

      I'm a US9/UK8 normally. Was sized up at an RM store to a 6.5H (Wide). A 7G (regular width) was way too narrow and tight.

      The sizing is absolutely bonkers to me, because I would have never bought such a size normally. I've checked their online sizing guide, and that too puts me around about a 6.5-7 H so the online chart is probably a reasonably safe bet.

      Went to my local store today and got sized - normally I'm US10-11, but I'm an 8.5G in RMs… Go figure

  •  

    Only Chestnut and Black available. No Rum or Dark Tan colours :(

  •  

    Also works for dynamic flex craftsman, same price post discount

    Everytime I see a RM post I amazed this is the same place where people is willing to go out of their way to save 50 cents on anything

    • +5 votes

      What you don't understand is I have my RM williams for 8 years and only have had to change the rubber piece on the heel a few times. Savings.

      I can wear it out to work, out to play. Savings.

      Made in Australia.

    •  

      They really are worth the money. I bought myself a pair of kangaroo craftsman. I wear them everywhere . To a fault. I went to the beach and got stuck as I didn't want to ruin the leather lol.

    Black is out of stock - in size 10 G

      Same size! Might get chestnut instead

      •  

        I already have the Chestnut and its a great price to get the black. Highly recommend the boots!

        Okay, pulled the trigger on the dynamic flex craftsman.

        •  

          I really dislike the dynamic flex.
          As an fyi if your foot is a flatter foot like mine. You would feel the inside arch too much in the dynamic flex.

  •  

    My size was originally OOS (by the time I saw the deal ~24h after posting, there had already been a couple thousand link clicks!), but I signed up to be notified when it came back in stock and got the notification tonight. Dynamic Flex instabuy.

      Same, more sizes for chestnut 8g back in stock, grabbed a pair thanks to the notification. $475.

    Is the code expired now? Doesn't work for me.

      Didn’t work for me either.

        There's a signup code to get $20 off

        •  

          Yep that’s what I ended up using. Not quite as good but still pretty decent deal. Finally got a pair.

          If you have a pair, could you let me know how often these need to get resoled and where do people take them to get resoled? Just any cobbler or RM Williams themselves?

          • +1 vote

            @Smol Cat: I would find the best cobbler in your city..I don't have one but I got a few other work shoes that I've put protective soles on.
