"CRAFTSMAN" When R.M.Williams made his first riding boot, he shaped the upper from one piece of leather. It was pretty well waterproof. It was strong as well and it made for a more comfortable boot. All of which R.M.Williams had in mind. One piece of leather means that colour, grain and texture are constant. You end up with a better looking boot. It takes longer. It costs more, but your feet won't mind a bit.
