Black and Gold

Fairfax and Favor were brand new at Golden Boot this season. We thought you’d love them, and you did. Amira has just landed in store and it’s as elegant as we expected. Shapes and lines accentuate natural curves of the leg. Gold detailing create intrigue and a luxurious feel. The interchangeable tassels are also available in a selection of beautiful, eye-catching colours.

You can thank us later…

RM Williams – Limited Edition Chinchilla Boot

For those of you who love RM Williams as much as we do – you’ll be just as excited about this stunning RM Williams Chinchilla boot. Get it whilst it’s still here…

One single piece of leather is moulded over the boot last, creating a sleek and smart look, and an extra-durable boot

The sole unit is attached to the upper using an English technique called ‘Goodyear Welting’. This makes the boot strong and sturdy, and also means the sole can be removed and replaced at the original factory.

All RM Williams Boots are hand crafted in Adelaide Australia, using age-old techniques.

The fabric tugs at the back are stitched right the way down into the heel counter, ensuring they’ll never come lose.

RM Williams Boots at Golden Boot

In 1932, Mr. Reginald Murray Williams handcrafted his first pair of leather shoes.

Made from one piece of leather, with a single seam at the back, they’re made the
same way today through over 80 hand-held processes in the factory in Adelaide, Australia.

The design concept came from a desire to create a boot that could endure long, exhausting days in the unforgiving Australian outback. These are built to last and are always made by hand with the finest leathers and Goodyear welting.

Despite not being in the Australian outback, they’ve become one of those iconic brands at the Golden Boot. Although having a broader, more varied customer than Jeffery West, they have a certain feel about them, and a surprising versatility.

I’d imagine them on the feet of a check shirt and battered jeans wearing man. As the heat rises and the dust settles, the deep-set creases in his brow tell tales of long days and endless nights. His hands as tough as his old RM Williams boots…but apparently, city dudes love these too. The stories are more train station, court-room or building site based, but they’re loved all the same.

Our collection includes the Comfort Craftsman, and Stockyard boots. They come in various leathers and suede, and look great with basically everything. In the 40s and 50s, RM Williams introduced a range of clothing, some of which we stock in the shop too. Choose from classic shirts, belts, and leather after-care products. Pay us a visit and take home your own piece of Australia!

Our very own Ed, who holds the fort at Golden Boot and loves any DIY project he can get his hands on, swears by his Stockyard boots.

They really have been through the wars, and made it through the huge project, that was building a new women’s department, and they’re only now starting to get a little tired. Fear not though Ed! RM Williams offer a repair service. They’ll  be sent back for them to be re-soled, re-stitched and re-buffed, ready for them to ‘be sent back into the world by the hands that made them’. How ideal! Check out the videos to find out more, although I challenge you not to read the rest of this blog in an Australian accent if you do…

Another classic style is the Craftsman ‘Yearling’ boot.

Crafted in the same shape, but made with a classic leather sole, these guys are timeless, sleek and super smart.

They also come with a tin of Stockman’s polish, as that leather needs some love. I know I’ve mentioned it before, but I’ll mention it again. And as an added bonus, there’s FREE UK delivery on all RM Williams boots ! The team in the men’s department at GB really know their stuff, and if you’re concerned about fitting, then pop in, have a coffee and a chat and try a few pairs on.

Until next time…mate.

The Slipper Edit

At the Golden Boot we LOVE slippers, so we stock a huge range of them to ensure you find the perfect pair. At this time every year, our customers go wild for the new slipper styles and orders come flying in.

Nordikas are hand made in Spain, and are known and loved for their comfort and durability. They have a solid sole unit (perfect for pottering outside) and this particular style has a warm, dark blue suede upper and a cosy lining. Other designs vary from colourful leathers and fleecy linings, to fun fair isle knits and metallics.

We also stock a great range of Nordikas for men. This solid style is Norwood, and is available in burgundy, blue, black and brown leather and suede shades too. This is an absolute sell-out every year, as customers love the warmth, comfort and practicality.

A few other wonderful slipper brands we stock are Ugg, Bedroom Athletics, Clarks, Barbour, Draper. Churchs and Silent Night – take a look at the full collection of men’s and women’s.

This style is Scuffette, and lives up to Ugg’s luxuriously cosy reputation.

These men’s Barbour slippers have a great gripping rubber sole unit, and a comfortable faux-fur lining. Presented in a beautiful Barbour box, they’d make the perfect gift.
