R.M. Williams was a herder, a well digger, a boot maker, a miner and more, and he became one of South Australia's most successful businessmen and a national icon. In 1932, he set up a humble factory in an iron woodshed behind his father's house to produce hard-wearing boots for farmers, miners and cattlemen. He soon became one of Australia's premier shoe manufacturers, with rugged designs that are still famous the world over. A heritage-quality offering, they're perfect for the outback or the backyard.
