Men's Blundstone Boot review

Blundstone Boots Review

by Purposeful Footwear - Last Updated: March 3, 2019

Blundstone is a family-owned business that has been making unique sturdy boots since 1870. The company is based in Tasmania, Australia and maintains the same authenticity, integrity and quality of their products that has existed since the very beginning more than 130 years ago.

The durability of Blundstone boots is phenomenal. This is no-nonsense footwear that goes anywhere and does anything at all. Unlike most products in these days of disposability, Blundstone boots can last for years with proper care.

All Blundstone boots have reinforced toes, in order to keep the shape of the boot intact. They look great and feel great. Here are several of the most popular styles available today.

Unisex Blundstone Boots

Nor many shoe manufacturers offer as many unisex styles as Blundstone does. This allows men and women to have the same high-quality stylish footwear in sizes specific to their gender instead of having to guess at complicated conversions.

Blundstone Chelsea Boot

The iconic Chelsea Boot offers everything you could want in both quality and comfort. A premium leather upper is complemented by an anatomically shaped removable foot bed. There is a Thermo plastic polyurethane outsole and polyurethane midsole. Together they facilitate longer wear and more comfort.

A steel shank and PORON® XRD™ shock protection in the heel strike zone complete this classic package. Although this is a unisex shoe, with men and women’s sizes available, there is also a specific women’s version available in one color option, as noted below in the women’s section.

Blundstone Slip-On Boot

The Blundstone Slip-On is one of the most popular in Blundstone’s lineup, and with good reason. While inspired by the Chelsea boot, the 552 is a tough classic that not only looks sharp, but also gets the job done. It’s a casual work shoe that you will give you miles of everyday wear.

The weather-proof olive-brown suede uppers are 2.5-millimeter-thick, and seamlessly fused to the outsole for a more streamlined look. As the premium leather upper softly secures your foot, a glove soft leather lined provides additional comfort.

Although the boots will never stretch in length, they will stretch and mold to the top of the feet, and will also easily stretch in width if required. If the fit is tight on the top of the feet initially, just give it some time. It will stretch eventually, or can easily be stretched by a shoemaker. This high-quality ankle work boot has finger loops at the top of the shoe and flexible elastic panels that make slip-on and removal easy.

This work boot is designed every bit as much for comfort as for durability. It features a Shock Prevention System which reduces shock by 33 percent and allows your feet to bounce back all day long.

A removable Cambrelle foot bed simply wicks moisture away, while the expanded EVA foot bed with Poron insert in the heel strike zone provides further comfort. A soft polyurethane micro cell midsole offers additional comfort and support. The tough injection-molded dual density polyurethane combines long wear with good slip resistance, and makes for a softer step.

Blundstone Combat Boot

The unisex Blundstone combat boot is quite an eye-catching example of that particular style. But it didn’t sacrifice anything in the way of comfort for those good looks. An anatomically shaped removable foot bed makes sure of that, but that’s not all.

The anatomically shaped removable foot bed, Thermo plastic polyurethane outsole and polyurethane midsole all ensure longer wear and a great deal of comfort. They are complemented by a steel shank and PORON® XRD™ shock protection in the heel-strike zone.

Blundstone Unisex Dress Series

For a bit of a dressier look, you can’t go wrong with the Blundstone Dress Series, available in several attractive color options. This classy 6 inch boot has an opening of about 10 inches around and is as comfortable as it is beautiful.

In addition to the anatomically shaped removable foot bed, there is a polyurethane midsole, Thermo plastic polyurethane outsole, steel shank and PORON® XRD™ shock protection in the heel strike zone. Together, they ensure stability and durability, as well as maximum comfort.

Blundstone Bump-Toe Boot

This rugged boot has a more aggressive look, thanks to its kick toe styling. But it still has all of the features that will offer you maximum comfort all day on the job.

The anatomically correct design of this boot includes a Shock Prevention System (SPS) that will reduce your risk of being shocked on the job significantly. It reduces skeletal stress on the vertebrae, knees and feet, and disperses shock at the heel strike.

Moisture is simply wicked away by a Cambrelle™ comfort foot bed. The dual-density polyurethane outsoles are durable, lightweight and weatherproof. They provide superior traction, as well, while the multi-directional lugs provide a grip like no other.

Men’s Blundstone Boots

While there are many unisex styles, and several women’s models from which to choose, there is no question that these men’s boots are special.

Not only is the 990 series safety, water and electrical hazard resistant, it has the American Podiatric Medical Association Seal of Acceptance. So it works hard for you and is good for your feet.

Blundstone 192 Industrial Safety Boot

This safety boot goes all out with safety and comfort features. The ergonomically engineered toe spring reduces wearer fatigue, while the steel shank assists with torsional stability and ensures a correct step flex point.

The boot features a stout brown premium water resistant upper. These are also exceptionally impressive at resisting abrasion and scuffing. So they stay looking fresh and new even months after taking them out of the box. Inside, a luxury PU footbed with built-in arch support keeps your feet in proper positioning at all times. This prevents long term discomfort and pain that could result to injury or contractures later on.

There is an impact-resistant steel toe cap and kickguard toe leather protection. A full heel breast provides arch support for gantry and ladder safety

Blundstone Thermal Series

The 6” Blundstone Thermal delivers both waterproof protection and insulated warmth. It features waterproof leather uppers, a leather lining, Thinsulate insulation and latex seams.

For instance, there is a shaped comfort foot bed that is fully removable. And wearer fatigue is reduced by the ergonomically engineered toe spring. A steel shank ensures the step flex point is correct and helps with torsional stability.

An extra leather flap has been stitched onto the vamp of the left boot, in order to absorb the extra wear caused by shifting gears. PORON® XRD™ is found in the heel strike zone to provide increased shock protection.

The thermo plastic polyurethane outsole is highly resistant to microbial attack and hydrolysis. It is also heat resistant to 290°F.

Women’s Blundstone Boots
