R.M. Williams

Colored by the aspirational come-up story of its namesake, the R.M. Williams label carries on a legacy of handcrafted, artisanal leather goods. The brand’s signature Chelsea boots continue uphold their status as a benchmark for the footwear style, enjoying a immovable ubiquity since their 1932 inception. With an ability to translate a construction originally conceived for the Australian outback into a contemporary cityscape context, R.M Williams’ iconic signature styles attest to the contextual flexibility granted by a straightforwardly elegant design, as well as the merits of a decade-spanning devotion to perfecting a consolidated scope of styles. Eschewing the hype-driven facets of footwear and, instead, proposing that shoe selection should be approached with a long-term mentality, R.M. Williams romanticizes the idea of deriving a maximal amount of mileage from a single carefully-selected, finely-crafted piece. With a wide range of leather and suede variations and variety of colorways and silhouettes occasioning boundless self-expression, R.M. Williams’ concurrent devotion to functionality and bespoke finesse has bolstered its evolution from homegrown Australian favorite to globe-spanning powerhouse.
