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.
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.
We are a family- oriented company, using age – old techniques passed on from one generation to the
