Your new best friend..
This is one of my favorite all time classic boots. The 500 has been around for years and never goes out of style. I wear these almost every day in the winter. Whether I am at work, out in the yard, or running around town, they always look great and are extremely durable. Other than a some character scuffing, the leather uppers are in great shape. I've been very surprised at how well the soles have held up with hardly any wear after a few years' worth of wear and tear. Keep in mind that these are based on Austrailian sizing, so one half to one full size down from your current shoe size will work. My only recommendation with these would be to get different insoles, like Superfeet. The ones that are in the boots do not give much support at all, and I replaced them with some Superfeet Blue trim to fit insoles and they were infinitely more comfortable and took up less space in the boot. Trust me, your feet will thank you!
Great casual, light work boot
These are the perfect pull-on boot. Blundstone has been around forever and their products are simple, yet solid. I have paired my 500's up with a set of SuperFeet insoles and they are ultra comfortable for all day wear. Plus, being all leather, they breath very well, resist water naturally and over time, they look even better.
BUT, make sure to STAY AWAY from any major heat source like a camp fire :( I accidentally sat for too long near the fire ring to suddenly realize that odd smoke was coming from my boot! It melted the bottom front section of the sole, but I quickly flattened them down while still gooey and they are still going strong today. I LOVE these boots!
For the long haul
This is one of the most versatile shoes/boots I have ever worn. Whether in the yard or in the office, rain, snow and everything in between, my 500s work in every condition. Not only do I love how easy they are to clean, but how easy they are to take on and off.
Great boots. comfort and durability
have had my original pair for about 6 years...they are indestrucable...have now bought several pairs for family members and all but 1(a sizing issue) love them.....they clean up well and retain their shape. The soles are great and I have used mine in all kinds of weather including snow and sleet...
Best Boot In Town
I've had my pair for 6 years. I wear them several times a week and they still look new. With an occasional touch of boot polish they still draw compliments and they still feel sturdy and solid. Great traction, completely comfortable, great looks. No problems. Can't ask for more.
I wear them everywhere, all the time.They look good enough for casual wear about town, and are sturdy enough for rough use, outdoors. I particularly like the design of the soles, which provides good traction, without picking up dog poop and other yard debris to track around.
I don't leave home without them!
Bought my first pair of Blundstones in Australia 15 years ago --- and my second pair from Rock Creek last month. It took fifteen years of constant wear for my first pair of Blunnies to wear out. Are they the best or are they the best?
Great Kick-Off Boots!
My husband wears these boots every day to perform ranch duties and light construction chores. He LOVES the ability to pull or kick them on and off, before coming in to the house, without having to mess with ties or loops.
I like these boots alot. They needed a couple of days breakin period, but are now very good. I live in Alaska and they prvide good traction on snow and ice.
My wife thinks these are the greatest!
These were a gift to my wife. It's her second pair and she works as a nurse in them!(home health)
She loves them.
