Redback Boots are 100% Australian made and owned. The Cloros family who
operate the business are 4th Generation boot makers. Family members work
hands on in the factory every day, to ensure the highest standard of production
quality. Redback means vision . In the early 1990s the Australian Government
accelerated the removal of Tariff barriers protecting Australian Boot
makers. Many footwear manufacturers decided to use this opportunity to
source cheap semi finished products from third World Countries where costs
are low. Redback decided to go the opposite way. The Cloros family decided
there was a market for hand made, high quality specialist boots for specific
industry and general purpose. Because Redback Boots are tougher, lighter
and more comfortable than ordinary footwear Redback has achieved enormous
growth. Starting with just 5 employees in 1989 there are now over 100
people involved in boot production and distribution from their Sydney
factory for Australian and Export Markets.
Please note: Redback ½ sizes are just wider not longer.

What sizes and the fitting do Redback boots come in?
Redbacks come in UK sizes (roughly 2 sizes larger than US) eg. US 9.5
equates to Redback size 8.
Redback boots show no stitching to the sole. How is the sole
Redback boots use no stitching, screws or glue as these breakdown over
time. Redbacks use the premier method for work or hiking boot soles -
a moulten or liquid sole material that is formed directly onto the leather
fibres under pressure. So the sole actually then becomes part of the upper.
How abrasion, oil, acid and heat resistant is the sole?
The TPU sole has excellent oil and acid resistance to almost all thise
encountered in normal working environments. It has 2 times the abrasion
resistance of many soles. The soles are heat resistant to 200C.
How should I look after the leather?
The hide has oils that need to be replenished during the life of the boot.
We recommend the use of premium silicon waxes.
Where are Redbacks made?
Redbacks are 100% Ausrtalian made. We handle the boots from the hide to
Are there any synthetic materials in the upper?
Redback believes that boots must be breathable. Synthetic linings and
leather liings, which are glued to the upper, stop the leather breathing.
The extra thick and mellow single layer of the leather keeps your feet
at the most comfortable climate.
