These are my second pair of Blunnies. My first pair lasted 10 years. I imagine these will last that long, too. They're extremely comfortable. They're waterproof. Well made. The leather lining is a nice bonus that my old ones didn't have. It's not fully lined in leather; the front half of the boot is lined with some sort of microfiber wicking material. That's not a complaint. I imagine Blundstone figured this way is better than a full leather lining. Note that the 1/2 sizes really aren't half sizes. They're the wide version of the whole size. So a 10.5 is really a 10 Wide.

My last pair of Blundstones were great boots, well made, and very, very long lasting. My most recent pair has not lasted one year. The leather cracked and ripped and the soles have ripped off at the toes. I work on a farm and use boots hard, so if you are buying them for a good looking pair of boots, go for it, but if you are looking for long wearing value (what Blundstones used to offer) look elsewhere. At some point production of these switched to China from Australia, the quality suffered, and the price rose. Bummer.

Wow, what happened to Blunstone? I had my first pair for seven years and loved them, wore them to the bone. I was excited to get another pair and was shocked how poor the construction was, one shoe was cut completely differently then the other. I had to look to see if I got the correct size in both shoes. I am very disappointed in the product I once loved. I will not order them again. I am very sad because they were great shoes.

I have been riding my mule wearing these boots for 4 years, I\'m on my third pair only because they get so scuffed up I treat myself to a new pair every so often. I love them. I TRIED to wear "real" cowboy boots and they always pinched my feet, they are NOT meant for actual walking. These boots feel awesome the first time you put them on, and continue that way. I do add a sheepskin boot liner in them, that adds to the comfort of the fit, and I wear a set of half-chaps over them when riding. I would recommend them to anyone who is involved in the equestrian world. I recently wore them on a long trip through Ireland and the British Isles, because I could only pack one pair of shoes and wanted something waterproof. They were as comfortable every day as an old pair of sneakers, easy to pull off for the airport inspections, but I did have to be careful to pull out the sheepskins every night and let the whole boot dry out. Overall I think this is a boot I recommend for every person. As for style, no one will ever notice them, they are a neutral toe and service soles that keep you from slipping.

I'd also recommend: DC

Don't let the space age sole material throw you - these boots last. Also, I don't know why people are saying these feel true to width. I've found the AU10.5 boot (half sizes are wides in AU measurements, I've been told) fit my feet almost as nicely as my old standby Timberland Chelsea boots. I stopped wearing Timberlands since they moved production to India - the soles went from being indestructible to getting ripped off the bottoms of my boots in 3 months. If you've got big, wide feet, like I do, these boots (with the help of a little leather stretcher compound) fit pretty well.
