A Short History of Blundstone
Blundstone was founded in 1870 in Hobart, Tasmania by John Blundstone. Over the last 150+ years they have outfit soldiers, farmers, mountain climbers, police officers, Olympic athletes, and just about everybody else with comfortable, quality boots.
Their combination of convenience, lightness, comfort, and durability is very difficult to find elsewhere.
Please note that our Blundstone inventory online is reflective of what we have in store PLUS what we are able to order from Blundstone directly. We DO NOT have every Blundstone boot in store at all times, but we are able to order most of them in relatively quickly, and we will get in touch with you should that be necessary.
The following is a rough guide for sizing yourself for a Blundstone:
For men, subtract about 1 full size from your North American size to find your Blundstone size. IE) US Size 11 is about a Size 10 in a Blundstone.
For women, subtract about 3 sizes from your North American size to find your Blundstone size. IE) US Size 8 is about a Size 5.5 in a Blundstone.
*The sizes we have listed are Blundstone boot sizes.

All products bought online can be returned in store. See Returns page for more information about the online and in store return process.
We have researched numerous shoe size guides online and in turn have developed what we think is one of the most accurate guides you will find anywhere. Please keep in mind this is before considering how each individual shoe fits, so use this as a starting point.
Unless otherwise indicated when choosing your size, we use the US sizing system for our footwear.
