* Shop Blundstones: 🤍fave.co/3PFJcuU * Shop RM Williams: 🤍fave.co/3j3p6kc * SIZING IS THE SAME. Just saw people search that a lot, lol. I'm 10.5 in both, my US size is 11.5, typical US boot size is 11. Hey, these are Australia's most valuable exports and a lot of people wonder why they're so dramatically different in price.

Can’t beat RM’s
Hi Stridewise can share about Timberland Cortina Valley Chelsea Boots Rebotl.
The bluntstones are 100% more comfortable if you are on your feet all day. I you walk to work and sit a desk the RMs are the way to go.
Unfortunately the RMs were not a good fit for me. Uncomfortable on the sole and fit around the foot. Maybe if they still offered MTM it would be fine.
Definitely a bit of a snob, mate.
Blundstones have their place.
Every now and then, put on a pair of boots with a thick slab of poron. Your knees will thank you.
It's nice to see you change up from cosplaying as a blue-collar worker, to cosplay as a corporate consultant in bad weather
Anyone looking for a good alternative for the blundstones, Redback boots makes a better alternative for less money even! Also a big plus is that they are still made in Australia:)) should maybe do a video on these? Absolutely love mine!
Bought a pair of R.M.s based off your first R.M. video. They are absolutely worth EVERY penny. I find I reach for them more than my other boots. The comfort is unreal and I think they are really sharp.
I know this is an Australian boot video, but I have a pair of Canada West Romeos that I would say are right in the middle between the Blundstones and R.M. Williams. They're my most comfortable boot by far. I wear them casually, but they've also worked in more formal situations. But that could just be a function of my lacking any sense of style.
Can’t wear a hoody with an rms??? Hold my beer 😂
Great Video Nick! I got both and I definitely have my favourite! Maybe I will make a video too :D!
I don't think you'll recover that $300 difference over the long run. Resoling is not cheap.
Can you compare RMs to Baxters?
I think this would be a more apples to apples comparison - both dress chelseas, Australian companies (Baxter boots is based in Goulburn NSW) and Baxters offer a whole cut. From what I have found most Baxters are made overseas but some may still be made in Goulburn.
I was going to buy a pair of blundstones but now after doing all my research I realize they are garbage
I love my Blundstones. They are the perfect foul weather boots that you can abuse and not care much about at all. I wear them in the rain, snow, slush, on hikes in mud, even stepping through a field of horse sh*t once. They are also chunky enough for my preferred outfits these days. For now I'm mostly over the sleek chelseas in general.
BLUNDSTONES ARE CRAP THEY ARENT MADE IN AUSTRALIA ANYMORE THEY OUTSOURCED AND STOPPED SUPPORTING AUSTRALIAN JOBS
Especially if you know anything about how unions in Australia works, this and the extreme aussie pandering marketing without being made in Australia, is super scummy
Happy early Straya day Nick! My expat wife and I picked up new pairs of RMs while in Oz visiting family over the holidays. With the conversion rate they were $418US. I got suede and she got black with more heel for work. Our original brown Yearlings are 25 years old and were dropped off to be resoled. Our RMs are faves but our Blunnies are right next to the front door and are the go-to casual and yard work chelsea. Cheers mate!
How do you feel about Thomas Cook?
Horses for courses, as the Brits say. Apples to oranges, we say in the states.
The only thing they have in common is that they're both Chelsea style boots (and both overpriced.)
Different details and price strata for different usage.
