Yard Boot 365View text
Marc was invited by heritage Australian footwear brand R. M. Williams to create a boot as part of their ‘future icons’ range. Tasked with a reimagining of the Gardener Boot- the hard-working, hard-wearing boot first introduced in the late 1950s - the Yard Boot 365 pays homage to this icon. The first capsule collection introduced six monochromatic boots in a range of leathers, and the second capsule kept the same core design, whilst introducing a contrast cream sole to some of the colourways.
Bench-made in South Australia and designed for year-round use, the boot is handcrafted using one single piece of leather with one back seam - true to the iconic R. M. Williams design.
The Yard Boot 365 is a fully lined boot with engineered elastic side gussets. The elastic gussets have an interwoven reinforced tug carefully engineered to be incorporated into the single piece of leather. Under-foot comfort is enhanced by the addition of Poron padding under a full-leather sock lining. The boot is finished with a wedge rubber outsole and features an exclusive sunray tread pattern on the underside of the sole, designed in collaboration with Richard Allan.
