Why? Because your feet are special
- they're yours after all! - and so they deserve special boots, the world's best in fact! And many people consider that Blundstones
are just that.
Blundstones, founded on the Australian island
of Tasmania in 1870 by migrants from England, are one of Australia's oldest and most reputable companies.
They have been 'ahead of the pack' for many years
- James Cuthbertson, a past owner of the Blundstone company, is claimed by some to have been the inventor of the elastic
sided boot in the late nineteenth century!
In Australia, for over 130 years, Blundstone
Boots have been the chosen footwear of farmers, miners, tradespeople, construction workers, 'truckies', factory workers,
all manner of 'outback' types - in fact anyone who needed a solid, safe and long lasting boot in difficult conditions.
The population of Australia is only 22 million
- but Blundstones sell a million pairs of boots a year!
Now the rest of the world is sitting up and taking
notice and adopting these tough boots for an even greater variety of purposes!
There can be little doubt that Blundstones have led the way in the current global
popularity of the elastic sided (and lace up) work and dress boot styles which are now produced by a number of excellent
Australian boot makers.
They are worn worldwide today by men, women, boys and girls. They look great, feel great, are
as 'tough as nails.'
Blundstones and their Aussie competitors have
earned acclaim for the strength and long life of their products, whether they be work boots, hiking boots, dress boots
(sometimes called 'chelsea boots'), paddock boots, riding boots, farm boots or just general purpose any occasion
They are such an Aussie icon that they are even in the collection of one
of Australia's top museums - the Sydney Powerhouse Museum - where the 505 style (the immediate predecessor to the 500) is
kept - see http://www.powerhousemuseum.com/collection/database/?irn=131055&img=112987
The boots I sell are very, very tough but still
cool and sexy!
They have to be tough to continue to satisfy their traditional 'Outback Aussie' customers and
they have to look good to appeal to the new converts to this great and practical style of footwear around the world.
Nowadays, they are made by the latest high tech processes and with the most modern of weight saving, comfort enhancing features
- way ahead of the field internationally.
The 'Tap Dogs' tap dancing troupe have wowed audiences worldwide with their amazing
gutsy Blundstone tap boot routines and many celebrities, such as Russell Crowe, Cindy Crawford, Brooke Shields, Jay Leno,
Helen Hunt, Danny Glover, Kim Bassinger, Alec Baldwin, and Iggy Pop like to be seen in their 'Blunnies'. So
do countless thousands of so-called 'ordinary' people worldwide who know and appreciate quality and value for money....people
who now have contented feet!
You'll discover Blundstones in cities,
villages, shops, schools, penthouses, farms, bars, cafes, construction sites, trucks, limos, tractors and sportscars. You'll
see them in the sun, rain, snow, mud, dust, floods and droughts. I've seen people sleep in them and I've sold boots to people
getting married in them (and it's sad but true that they outlast a lot of marriages)!
You can even go paragliding in them

Most Blundstone boots are water resistance, have oil, fat and acid resistant injection molded
soles with no stitching or glue to come undone where the sole and the upper come together. They feature the best quality
leather which provides great protection in conditions tougher than most of us will ever subject our boots to. They have high
performance treads and the many styles have the latest anatomically designed features for superb comfort.
With success comes competition, though,
and, with the availability of lower cost manufacturing overseas, Blundstones have struggled to remain profitable with manufacturing
in Australia. Also. production levels in the old Tasmanian factory were struggling to keep up with the huge demand
- often causing long and frustrating supply delays for customers.
Therefore, in 2007, the move was made
to start producing Blundstone boots at new overseas production facilities. In typically thorough Blundstone fashion
the Australian lasts and some of the machinery that ensured quality over the years was moved to these new factories and
a very strict quality control process was instituted. The boots being produced in these overseas plants are every
bit as good as the old Aussie made product. Blundstones know that their reputation for quality can never be compromised!
really only one problem for me - they're so good and strong you won't need to replace them for years! But you'll be so happy
with them that you'll probably be back for a second pair - and I know your friends and family will all want some!
the rest of the world discovered Blundstones they have been sold at premium prices in many countries where wearers appreciate
the practicality, comfort and long, long life of these great boots.
