R.M.Williams

Made in Australia

Born in the Australian outback, R.M.Williams creates

purposefully designed and beautiful footwear, 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 recognisable

footwear styles.

With an advertisement for ‘Elastic Side Boots’ published in

Adelaide’s Chronicle newspaper in 1934, R.M.Williams the

brand was born and the people of Australia started to make

their way to 5 Percy Street, Prospect, in South Australia.

The foundations of the R.M.Williams business are firmly built

on the spirit of RM, the man. Reginald Murray Williams was

a serial entrepreneur who spent his many years inventing,

reinventing and perfecting new techniques. He investigated

new businesses and markets but remained grounded by his

upbringing and experience.

This entrepreneurial, driven spirit remains at the core of the

company culture today. Leaders across the globe are drawn

to the effortless style and reliability that is at the heart of the

brand, as are some of the most famous people on the planet.

The craftsmanship of the 300-staff boots, craft and clothing

workshop in Adelaide is something special and unique.

Many of these staff members have a lifelong dedication to

the company, and pass their skills down from generation to

generation.

The classic boot styles incorporate more than 80 hand-held

processes, each performed by men and women with multiple

years’ training and an eye for quality and detail.

 

THE ICONIC ELASTIC-SIDED BOOT, MADE

FROM ONE PIECE OF LEATHER, IS DURABLE

ENOUGH TO STAND UP TO THE RIGOURS OF

THE OUTBACK.

This one-piece leather construction stands R.M.Williams

boots apart. Goodyear welting – the strip of leather that

runs along the perimeter of the boot outsole – means

not only a well-made, durable boot, but also one that

can be repaired as good as new with a life expectancy of

decades, if well looked after. The simplicity of the design

means it can work with jeans in the outback or a suit in the city.

 

 

WE MADE IT TO LAST.

Der rahmengenähte (Goodyear-welted) Chelsea Boot ist aus einem Stück Leder gefertigt, das durch Walken in die spätere Schuhform gebracht wird – man sieht es an der Walkkante auf dem Spann. Auf diese Weise wird das Leder beim Gehen weniger gestaucht, was die Paßform verbessert und den Tragekomfort erhöht.

"Genäht am anderen Ende der Welt in einer kleinen Manufaktur auf Maschinen aus Deutschland, von denen einige 100 Jahre auf dem Buckel haben, von Menschen, die ihr Handwerk ein Leben lang ausüben, aus einem einzigen Stück Leder, das aus den feinsten Gerbereien der Welt stammt, wird er von seinen Besitzern über Jahre getragen. Und dann repariert." (FAZ 18.03.2016)
