    Amen to that, Drubs.
    But all of a sudden when corporate drones with no respect for the longevity of the brand are calling the shots, bad things can happen.
    Let's hope they sort themselves out.

    Tom, I'm amazed at your experience - it flies in the face of the customer service "image" that their stores promote. Did you only go through the outlet, or did you have a crack at contacting the factory too? I wonder if some retail drone just classified them as "too hard". If they still look good enough to wear with a suit, they clearly can't be too unsound.

    If, despite what you have read above, you are interested in R M Williams boots - you may want to sign up here - http://www.rmwilliams.com.au/registration/secret_boot_sale.html

    I suspect that their 'Secret Boot Sale' (which they have sent invites for to everybody on their mailing list) will not be as good as Nungar pricing (see here - Boots) you never know ...

    Not at Bunnings or listed on their website, any idea where to get it?

    A quick scan of the web suggests that Diggers have discontinued this line. No problem - you'll find other brands. Horseland (430 Newcastle St) have Joseph Lyddy Neatsfoot oil in 500ml and 1 litre containers. Just as good - maybe better. Key use is for conditioning leather saddles, but magic on RM's.

    They are also good for strops. But only a couple of drops at a time.

    I've got Neatfoot, but overnight made no difference. I'll have to stump up for trees/stretchers if these are going to be wearable. Can a cobbler not do this? or would it cost the same as buying stretchers?
     
  13. TomG

    Yes - a cobbler will do the same thing. I've seen them do it - this is how I came to know of this method. Doesn't always work, but I've had a few wins over the years. In some cases, the Cobbler has done it as a freeby.
    If you go the shoe-trees option, put as much pressure as you can when you insert (they are kind of spring loaded), and do this after a generous application of oil. May need to repeat a few times.

    Tempted. I wouldn’t mind trying a good boot but not sure if these are worth the investment at that price.

    I thought the same thing till I got a pair of RMs. Would certainly recommend them, so much so I want another pair (or 2).
