Forget UGGs, Foster's and Akubra--the brand that defines the Australian character is R.M. Williams, a company that has clothed generation after generation of bushmen. So ingrained is the company in Australian culture that IP Australia (the PTO of down under) named it one of the country's 10 most important brands.
One of R.M. Williams' most popular products is the Craftsman boot, which can be found on the feet of everyone from moleskin pant-wearing ranchers in the outback to Armani-clad businessmen in Sydney. The handmade Craftsman is a slip-on, elastic-sided boot--a style indigenous to Australia.
