19- Bespectacled and intellectual, Rudd does not come across as a typical Queenslander, but he does wear RM Williams boots: "Always have done."

Close up of The Ruddster's Footwear
My trained eye* tells me the footwear of choice is a well worn pair of RM Williams Craftsman Veal as pictured below. A Top of the Line Dress boot. Luxury French Veal Calf leather, leather lined. Sewn welt leather soles with flat heels and individual protective moleskin boot bag for each boot .

Uncle FX says: Nothing wrong with RMs. But never with a suit.
* I have also noticed Kev wearing these boots in several newpaper photos not available online and on TV footage.
