Once designed to keep the foot from slipping forward in a stirrup the block heel is equally at home for walking as horse riding. The height enhancing 4.5cm leather stacked heel is expertly crafted and shaped and adds an overall elegant aesthetic to the boot.
The R.M.Williams legend began with the Cuban heel on the Classic Bushman boot. Originally designed as a safety device which prevented the boot going through the stirrup if the rider was thrown by their horse, it is now a staple in many wardrobes. The Cuban heel is a stacked leather tapered heel with a rubber capping. Now it is featured on the Santa Fe, a boot style seen in the catalogues since 1940.
