A great Australian story that never stands still.

Redback Boots is an Australian company owned and operated by the Cloros family, who have a boot-making tradition spanning five generations back to the early 1900s. We’re 100% Australian-owned and, equally importantly, our boots are handmade here in Australia too.

Handbuilt in Sydney, Australia.

Tough, hardworking and smart – Redback boots embody the best of the Australian work ethic. They get the job done well, without a fuss.

Australian-made down to our bootstraps, we take a no-nonsense approach to making work boots. We look at who wears them, the jobs they do and the places they work in. Then, we design a boot that helps them do their work comfortably and safely. We’ve been making work boots this way since 1925. And every pair is made at our factory in Alexandria, Sydney.

Hell for Leather? No problem.

Redback’s legendary durability starts with the leather we choose. Sourced only from Australian and New Zealand premium full-grain cow hides, it is both thicker and more supple than in normal workboots.

Redback leather is produced for maximum protection and comfort in any given work situation. Whether you want your boots to be resistant to water, heat or oil, our careful procurement process ensures your boots get the job done as effectively as you do. We blend old-school craftsmanship with the latest technology to ensure every hide we use is treated and cut to maximize quality and durability. Our hides are sourced from selected suppliers in Australia and New Zealand. To put it simply, our leather is bred tough.

Aged to Perfection.

Redback Boots is an Australian company owned and operated by the Cloros family, who have a boot-making tradition spanning five generations back to the early 1900s. “Redback is 100% Australian-owned and, equally important, our boots are handmade here in Australia too”. This matters not only because the Cloros family owes its good fortune to Australia, but also because “we put the utmost emphasis on quality and workmanship. We oversee every step of the production process in our own factory in Sydney, Australia.”
