RM Williams will supply 15,000 pairs of black Craftsman boots to Australian soldiers each year for the next three years, enough to equip every soldier in the Army.Â They will be made at RM Williams Salisbury manufacturing headquarters.
Another 5000 pairs of boots will be supplied to inductees each year in the final two years of the five-year Army contract.
The boots will be used as the new Australian Army parade boot, replacing the traditional black lace-up Army boot worn by generations of soldiers on the parade ground.
“We are proud to further secure our manufacturing capability in Salisbury, which will now be complemented initially by a 4pm-8pm shift, with plans to go to a full evening shift in the coming years,” RM Williams chief executive Hamish Turner said.
