Time to refurb or upgrade…?

There comes a time when your old faithfuls will need a bit of TLC and that is where we can help. Bring your boots into store or post them to us (address below) and we will do all the work for you. We will give you a call for payment once we get the boots back. Don’t worry if you can’t pick them up from us, we can send them back to you by courier (£5.00 postage charge)

As most repairs are done by hand, the lead time can be approximately 4-6 weeks. If your boots need to go back to Australia, it can take up to 12 weeks. Please e mail us a picture of your boots particularly if they have considerable wear to the uppers and/or tears, sales@thegoldenboot.co.uk

A couple of things we will need from you are:

  • Details of the repair…heel only, gusset etc
  • Your name, address, telephone number and email address.
  • Please remove any dirt/mud from the soles.

Price list:

  • Full refurbishment of long heel and sole – from £100
  • Elastic gusset replacement – £18 each gusset
  • Heel tabs – £12
  • Heel repairs only – £40

We hope that’s everything covered, but if you have any questions at all just give our friendly Men’s team a call on 01622 752349.

And while your old favourites are away, you could always have a look at our complete collection of RM Williams online or come visit us in store!

Fresh Attire

Since we started stocking men’s clothing, it has been swept off the hangers within days of  a new season beginning. This spring and summer is no different.

A favourite so far has been this Barbour utility jacket – sturdy zips and button pockets make it ideal for chilly walking weather.

RM Williams offer us another collection of their classic plaid, button down shirts – ideal with jeans or chinos for spring.

Magee was a new brand for us in the autumn, and their collection for spring has not disappointed. The cloth, colour palettes and attention to detail is top-quality.

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.
