The R.M.Williams company was founded and established in 1932 by Australian legend, Reginald Murray ("RM") Williams AO, CMG. We love these boots as these are purely working class boots for farmers in Australia. It is still a no. 1 boots for farmers in Australia. 100% pure leather and it is good for horse ride. We bought couple of pairs, brilliant feeling and comfort is unlimited. Truely Guru !
