Blundstone boots have grown to become one of the world’s most recognizable shoe brands. They make a variety of Chelsea boots in numerous styles and finishes; dress boots with chisel toes, suede boots, high ankle boots, and now their new Women’s heeled boots. Other companies offer similar boots, but Blundstone’s are light, comfortable, and the key is durable. Head into any town located in the mountains and look at the choice of footwear, I bet you will see a good group of people wearing Blundstone’s Supper 550 Chelsea Boot. Below are 5 reasons why we love Blundstone’s.
1.Gives A Classic Look
These shoes were designed to be utilitarian hard-working boots. Today they are very popular, whether they are working people or hipsters they have their pants rolled up to show their legs and show off the “legit” Blundstone tag. Blunnies are special in fashion because their classic style of the Chelsea boot will outlast all of the current trends that are going in and out. Overall, these Blundstone Boots are special even for the “non-fashion forward” consumer.
2. Blunnies are Durable
Even though these boots moved production from Tamansia to Asia 10 years ago, they have managed to maintain quality control. Blundstone is one of the very few examples of outsourcing fashion that did not result in poorer quality. A pair of Blunnies may get scuffed and scrappy, but they will last you for years. They also add a removable footbed, which slowly overtime molds to your foot making the boot more comfortable as time goes on.
3. 100% Waterproof Boots
Aside from the freezing Winter temperatures these boots are not insulated so they do not provide any additional warmth above and beyond a leather boot. However, they do a great job of keeping your feet dry from the snow and the slush.
4. They are Unisex
The best part about these shoes: they are unisex! Whether you are a very fashionable person or maybe fashion is not your strong suit, these are the perfect boot to invest them. Any style can be worn with these boots. I have seen people wear them with boyfriend jeans for more of a loose style, or skinny jeans with more of a fitted look. I have even seen women wear these with dresses! It may sound crazy but it actually looked good, my motto is if you can work it then go right ahead!
Pricing for these boots is very reasonable, especially with all the qualities I listed above. They start at $184 and go up to $339 depending on style, newness, and color. Blundstone boots very rarely go on sale. Sometimes you will find discontinued Blundstone boots on sale. So if you were thinking about purchasing them, definitely save up and find your perfect pair!
