Born in the Australian Outback, R.M.Williams creates beautifully designed foot wear, craft and accessories for all of life’s adventures.
Reginald Murray (‘RM’) Williams founded the company, R.M.Williams, in 1932. RM recognised the need for hardwearing products and was determined to create a boot that could endure the harsh conditions of the Australian outback. Months were spent adapting a single piece of softened hide into one of the world’s most recognizable footwear styles. Beginning with a six-pence advertisement for ‘Elastic Side Boots’ in a local newspaper to the trademark riding styles the world recognizes today – our famous bushman boots really only get better with age. A style made from one piece of tanned leather, eliminating the risk of tearing; stitched using waxed thread for durability and featuring elastic at the side for comfort – the ultimate riding boot was born. World class leathers, skilled artisans and quality craftsmanship.
Focused on authenticity, quality and heritage.
We are a family- oriented company, using age – old techniques passed on from one generation to the next. Boot making has always been at the core of the company’s manufacturing, portraying a true example of dedication and master craftmanship. Right from the outset, each pair of R.M.Williams boots has been made with one piece of leather.
“It’s the people that make the business, not the boots” – Ken Cowley AO.
