R.M.Williams was founded in 1932 by Reginald Murray Williams. RM – as he liked to call himself, recognized the need for hard-wearing products and was determined to create a boot that could endure the harsh Australian bush. Months were spent adapting a single piece of softened hide into one of the world’s most recognized footwear styles. With an advertisement for ‘Elastic Side Boots’ published in Adelaide’s Chronicle Newspaper in 1934, the R.M.Williams brand was born and the people of the bush started to make their way to 5 Percy Street, Prospect, South Australia. Through quality craftsmanship and extraordinary attention to detail, R.M.Williams now gives a piece of Australian bush culture to passionate followers of superior products the world over.
