Do R.M. Williams have a warranty on their boots?

R.M. Williams provides a 60 day return period for items from the date of purchase. Items can be returned for a full refund provided they have not been worn, damaged and are in the original packaging.

Do R.M. Williams offer free repairs for their boots?

The only case in which R.M. Williams will offer either free repairs, an exchange or refund will be in the event of a faulty item. This does not cover general wear and tear. For repairs not covered by warranty you’ll need to either use a local shoe repairer or take your boots to an R.M. Williams outlet and they’ll send them to their factory based in South Australia for a quote and repair.

Where should I repair my R.M. Williams boots?

We recommend using a local repairer for your R.M. Williams boot repairs as the official repair service has limited service offerings, is generally more expensive and has a turnover time of up to 2 months. For most our clients who use their R.M. Williams regularly this can be an inconvenience.

How long does it take for my R.M. Williams boots to be repaired?

While the official R.M. Williams service takes 6 – 8 weeks, we offer a quality guaranteed turnover of 1 – 2 weeks depending on how busy our workshop is.

What R.M. Williams repair services do you offer?

We provide all standard repairs such as stretching, reheeling, resoling, gusset replacement and sole modifications (TOPY or Vibram). We also offer restorative leather work including polishing, cleaning, reconditioning, refinishing and redyeing which are specialised services generally not offered by the R.M. Williams factory.

Do you resole R.M. Williams boots?

We resole R.M. Williams with either rubber protectors (TOPY or Vibram), full or half leather soles. Depending on the extent of wear to your soles half rubber sole protectors are often the most cost-effective and long-lasting option for resoling your R.M. Williams boots.
