Well first thing is I was told this boot runs small in size. And this wasn't true for me at all. It actually felt true to size. But in the long run the boots were a complete disappointment. 1st thing is, they are not made in Australia like you are lead to believe. They are made in Vietnam. Second thing is the rubber sole actually started to come away from the leather. So essentially they are separating. Third thing is they are dyed the color that they come in so when they get scratched, the color comes off of them. I really wanted to like the boots and now I am going to try out some Chippewa's that Zappos sells. Oh and Zappos is amazing to deal with! Hopefully Blundstone goes back to their roots and put out a great product like they did in the past.Read more » « Show less February 3, 2011 by Terry

I've been wearing Blundstones for over 12 years as my primary work boot and as casual shoes. I originally wore the 500's but for the past few years I've been wearing the 550's. I can't say enough how much I love these boots. Durable, comfortable and stylish, what more could you ask for? And the slip on and off easily to boot! I also have wide feet but the leather is supple enough to conform to my foot without any discomfort.

It is clear that these guys have been making these shoes for a long time. They are super comfortable and very well put together. I've tried this style made by other brands and the Blundstone has refined their product way beyond the competition. Everyone should have a pair of these.
I'd also recommend: Salomon

My husband and I have worn Blunnies for over 10 years. He has steel toe/plate as well for work. I wear these October through May except through the deepest snow or if I will be outside for an extended period. I have very hot feet, and they breathe well. They will also take an orthotic and are the same shape as real human feet - Imagine! I wear them for all but the dressiest occasions. I wear a women's size 5 and my husband a size 12 shoe (3 & 11 in the Aussie sizes). If your foot is very narrow, this is not the shoe for you, but for all others - grab them! Very lightweight.
