I ordered these after reading an article on a flight contributed by a frequent traveler who said they were a great travel shoe. The fit is fine but I can't imagine spending 10+ hours in this shoe at once.

Love these shoes! Heed the other posters' advice...heel rubbing definitely happens. I bought a package of moleskin and kept on trucking. I absolutely love the way they conform to your feet. I'm ordering another pair tonight with a bit taller heel. The width is nice and generous. I normally wear an 8 in tennis shoes and 7.5 wide in nice shoes. These at a 7.5 regular feel perfect.

Brands I'd also recommend: Frye (But they are much narrower)

Absolutely love Blundstones. I've owned a pair of the boots and like the lower profile of these. I found they run true to size if you cross reference Aussie sizes. Zappos sizes listed are 1/2 size bigger. Wear in time was 2 full days for me on my feet moving. Favorite part is how quick I can slip 'em on and be on my way. Look is simple, not flashy. Not crazy soft like a pair of tennis shoes, but decent comfort for a shoe with this type of skinnier sole.

My favorite pair of shoes. So comfortable. I get tons of compliments on them as well; don't see too many people wearing these around.

Great looking comfortable shoes. These shoes were comfortable to stand in from the first day, but the stiff back irritated my achilles area for the first three weeks. Now they are broken in and no longer rub.

I purchased these for a gift. So far the recipient is pleased. He says they are comfortable and easy to pull on, that's why he wanted them.

Can't go wrong with this shoe. I got them in the mail yesterday and am wearing them today and they feel great. I will be wearing them all winter. I feel like a lucky girl today.

Great looking shoe. Very comfortable. Confusing sizing. I am usually a US 11- 11.5. My Blunnie 550 boots fit perfectly as an AU 9.5 / US 10.5, but those were way too small in this shoe, and I had to go to their max of AU 10.5 / US 11.5. Much lower profile design, but the lengths and widths had no correlation between the boots and shoes. Definitely order a half size larger than normal.

These are my first pair of Blundstones so I wanted to start out slowly and bought the shoe rather than the ankle boot. This is a really great looking shoe. I took the advice of others and ordered a half size down (I think -- I am usually an 8.5 (US) and I ordered a 5.5 (AU)) -- and the shoes fit perfectly upon arrival. I have only worn them a few times so I am still breaking them in but they don't seem to require much breaking in. It is a much lighter weight shoe than I was expecting but I am now looking forward even more to buying the classic ankle boot.

Brands I'd also recommend: Clarks

I really wanted to own a pair of Blunnies, and this is a really fun style, not quite so utilitarian as some of the boots. The back part rides a little high and rubs the back of my ankle, but I think this will break in over time. It's better with a slightly thicker boot sock. For me, I wore the exact same size in this shoe as the boot. They are fairly wide in the toe box, more than the Blundstone boots that tried on. I wear a US W 10/EUR 42, and the AU 7/US W's 9.5 fit me perfectly.

My wide feet make it hard for me to find shoes that fit. These fit! All I did was take out the insole. I ordered half a size smaller per other comments and the shoes are fine for length. The brown is very dark, more like a porter than an ale. The back (where the loop ribbon is, which I removed) rises high and rubbed for a while; I used a Band-Aid to cushion the spot. I like the low heel and thin sole. I think I will buy the desert boots in this style next simply because the shoes fit and look good.

These shoes are pretty great. They look great, the leather is soft and nicely stitched, and they seem really durable. I think they will last a few years at least. The only trouble was that while I was breaking them in they gave me horrible blisters on my achilles tendon area. But once they were broken in, which took a couple of weeks, they were fine. These are obviosly quality shoes, and the soles are nice and grippy for wet weather.

This is an inferior product. These shoes claim to be work shoes however after three months the toes blew out on both of them and the soles peeled away from the leather. I wore them for another three months with my toes sticking out before finally deciding to return them For $130 these should last a bit longer than three months. I am disappointed Blundstone moved their production overseas from Australia and obviously compromised on quality to achieve pricing margins. I used to live in Australia and everyone would rave about these shoes, but I guess that was when they were still made in Tasmania. I will not be buying a Blundstone product again.
