RM Williams’ range of leather and suede boots now comes in waxed, weathered and burnished finishes. The handsome Australian-style buckle-strap ankle boots in burnished cognac (£460) or caramel yearling with soft kid linings feel authentically rugged. They also come in rich Italian suede (£420). The Sydney low-rise Chelsea boot (£350) is a lightweight version of the brand’s classic – it keeps the Goodyear welt but has a sleeker profile, less height and lighter internal toecap. And the technical-leather Chelsea (£350) now comes in luxe calf and kangaroo as well as cool-looking matte, oiled and weatherproofed leather.
