Blundstones are on trend, and have been since 1870

Words by Maeve Kerr-Crowley

Technically older than the Australian nation.

A simple way to spot a brand worth buying is to see how long it’s been around.

Blundstone has been making boots for near 150 years and has been operating as a family-run business the entire time.

The brand was established in 1870 in Hobart, where you’ll still find its head office. A truly global business, the brand now sells 2.4 million pairs of boots a year in over 70 countries.

The name Blundstone has come to represent sturdy, rugged shoes that are made to endure hell or high water. The range includes boots suited to hiking through nature or working on a construction site, as well as plenty of everyday styles.

Innovation is built into each release, with technology designed to provide greater comfort, increase safety, and protect your feet from the elements.

As well as high-quality leather and shock-absorbing footbeds, some styles also include safety measures like chemical, heat and slip-resistant soles and steel toe caps.

This includes classic – dare we say, iconic – silhouettes, as well as a constant rotation of new styles to cover as many lifestyle needs as possible.

Recently released styles include the 1671 and 1673 women’s heel, the olive waxed suede 1615, pebbled nubuck leather 1466, and the classy indigo touch of the 1462.
