Mongrel Riding Boots

.

Mongrel is a boot brand that prides themselves on being 100% Australian born and bred. Mongrel manufacturer Victor Footwear is a family company that has made boots or Australian workers since 1930. Passing on the skills of the trade and the attitude for quality workmanship down through five generations, it could be said that they know a thing or two about making tough boots for Australian conditions. The Mongrel riding boot is a fine-looking boot, and is an excellent option for those wanting an R.M. look without the price-tag. Made for horse riding but suited to everyday dress wear, the riding boot is made from genuine leather and feature a super strong internal shank. We started stocking Mongrel recently due to our customers informing us that they are reliable and comfortable footwear, and the riding boot is no exception. A highly comfortable and well-constructed dress boot in black or brown to suit every occasion, the Mongrel Riding Boot is an Aussie made option you should have on your radar this year.

Redback Bobcat UBOK

This is by far our most sold boot. Made by Redback in Sydney, NSW by the Cloros family, 4th generation boot makers who work hands-on in the factory every day. The hard-wearing work boot has become popular all over the globe. We think its soaring reputation is due to the extremely comfortable air injected sole that All Redback boots share. The sole is poured onto the boot, meaning a super strong construction that stands the test of time. The slip resistant sole is designed to provide anatomic support as well as reduce foot problems including foot fatigue and leg and back aches. The midsole is engineered to improve shock absorption, making these boots extremely versatile on all surface types. All this technology simply means you can wear these beauties walking or working day in and day out without foot or leg pain. Available in both soft toe and safety cap versions, the Redback Bobcat is possibly Australia’s favourite boot.

Rossi 301 Endura

The Rossiter family, who started the Rossi Boots company have been manufacturing boots in Australia since 1910, and now have a modern factory situated in Adelaide, South Australia. The passion for producing quality crafted boots has been passed down to each generation, so you can safely say that boot making is in their blood. The Endura 301 is part of Rossi’s core range, a strong and good-looking casual work boot, you can also get a steel capped safety version called the 701 Apollo. These boots are known for their comfort and as such are popular with hospitality and health workers who are on their feet all day. We also think the Rossi Endura is a great fashion casual boot that will hold its good looks for a long time. The 301 comes in matt black, but you can choose to polish them up with boot wax if shiny boots are more to your liking.

R.M. Williams Craftsman’s

These boots are a bit of a national treasure, still made at the Percy Street factory in Adelaide, the Craftsman has been following almost the exact same design out of a single piece of leather since 1932. These boots are good looking roosters with the durability to back it up, a goodyear welted sole means when you buy a pair of Craftsman’s you can be confident you are getting the best constructed boots possible. With a bit of care and maintenance, a pair of Craftsman’s can last decades, and you can send them back to Percy Street to be for a full range of repairs, from a re-sole to a full re-last. We always recommend the Comfort Craftsman as the pick of the bunch, as the rubber sole make it a  comfortable and hard wearing choice to wear to the office on a daily basis, and will take longer to wear down than the leather sole of the Classic Craftman. One thing is for sure, no matter what Craftsman you choose, it will be a valuable investment in your wardrobe.

Redback Everest UEPU

Redback Puma Aquapel

.

Redback make a second feature in our top five list with their Everest UEPU hiking boot. This popular lace up walking boot features the same one of a kind, air injected, super comfortable sole as the Bobcat UBOK work-boot, but made from Protec Aquapel water-proof leather, making the Everest UEPU boot highly waterproof. The full height bellows tongue makes this boot the choice of Australian hikers as it folds in on itself, preventing dirt and water from seeping into the boot. The Puma is a good looking lace up, and as such it’s popularity is not exclusive to hikers, with many customers wearing the puma as a fashion casual or everyday work boot. The Everest UEPU is another great reason why Redback is arguably Australia’s favourite boot brand.
