Why Choose Blundstone Boots?

Blundstone is a traditional Australian boot company and a staple of every wardrobe in the land down under. The brand has been making shoes out of Tasmania for 150 years, even equipping the military during World War II. What’s certain is that Blundstone knows a couple of things about a good fit.

Blundstone boots are quality boots, so they will cost you more than low-cost boots. However, they will likely also last you longer. The leather is of good quality and weather-resistant, the soles are durable and shock-absorbing and the insoles are soft.

What Size Should I Get in Blundstones?

To know what size Blundstone boot to buy, you’ll first need to measure your feet and compare to the Blundstone sizing charts below. Here’s how you do it.

  1. Get a piece of paper larger than your foot, a pencil and a ruler or a measuring tape. Put on the same socks you’ll be wearing with your Blundstone boots.
  2. Find an even surface in your home, preferably without a carpet and next to a wall. Place the paper on the floor next to the wall and step on it, with your heel against the wall.
  3. Grab the pencil and draw the outline of your foot on the paper, tracing the shape of your foot as close as possible. Try to keep the pencil upright and your foot still, and ask somebody to help you if you lack the flexibility to do it.
  4. When you’ve got the outline of your foot drawn out, pick up the ruler and measure the length of your foot from the longest toe to the heel.
  5. Repeat on the other foot, and go with the measurement of the larger one.
  6. Compare this measurement to the size guide below for the right Blundstone sizing. Remember that a heel lift, a lining or the insole can affect the sizing.

If you’re looking for Blundstones for small children, you can use this same measuring technique. The most important thing is to make sure they don’t tense up their arches, which could alter the result. If it’s impossible to prevent and they start squirming, you can also measure a kid’s foot with a measuring tape when they’re sitting down.

Blundstone Boots Sizing Chart for Kids

This is the size guide for kids. All Blundstone boots for children have a removable outsole that makes it easier for you to adjust them to your child’s growing feet.

With kids’ boots, if you’re not sure about the size, it’s always better to size up. For kids, a half size of difference will likely be a matter of a couple of months.

Trying on Blundstone Boots

Here are some additional tips for finding the right fit for your Blundstone boots.

  • Try the shoes on at night, when your feet are more swollen. This will help you avoid getting shoes too small.
  • Sitting down, check out the toes and make sure they have some wiggle room. There should be around a thumb width between the end of the shoes and your toe.
  • If the boots are pressing against the sides of your feet, you may want to look for a wider fit.
  • The heel area should fit snug but comfortable. You should be able to fit a finger inside the shoe, behind your heel.
  • Make sure the boots are the right fit when sitting and standing up. Walk around with them at home to make sure nothing is pinching your toes.
  • The part of the shoe where the v-stitching goes over the instep can feel tight. This normally passes once you’ve broken in and stretched the boots a bit.
  • If the boot feels too tight, you’ll need to size up. The leather upper will get bigger, but the shoe won’t stretch lengthwise.

Please note that while wearing shoes that are poorly fitted is very common, it will only give you pain and disorders, such as calluses and deformities, in the long run.

Should You Size up in Blundstones?

The size you pick for your Blundstones depends on the model. Different upper materials, insoles and cushioning, as well as a heel lift, will always have an effect on the fit. Rounded toes, v-shaped toes and the more squared chisel toes will also have a different fit.

You can never be absolutely certain about the right size, but finding information on the specific model and measuring your feet will help.

Most Popular Types of Blundstone Boots

These are some of the bestselling models of Blundstone boots and their fit.

Chelsea Boot

The traditional Chelsea boot with chisel toes, or a square toe box, is one of the company’s most famous designs. It’s dressy enough to wear for work, but it’s also comfortable for long hours on your feet.

The Chelsea boot comes in different models for women and men, and in many different colors. You’ve also got an option for kids’ Chelsea boots, from infant to big kid sizes.

The Chelsea boot also comes in the updated 550 model in tough full-grain leather, that’s versatile for work, hiking and urban use. It has an extra set of footbeds to change into and a soft leather lining. They’re also water-resistant to an amazing degree, even at the elastic part.

As far as sizing goes, the Chelsea boots run true to size. However, pay attention to the toe shape, especially if you have extra-wide or narrow feet. The v-shaped boots are narrower than the rounded toes, and the chisel toe is longer, so many people size up or down accordingly.

Work Boots

Blundstone’s Work Series 179 is a good example of the brand’s tough work boots models. It’s laceless, so you won’t have any spilling liquids getting your feet wet, and the design is rugged for heavy-duty use.

This boot has a steel toe, so it’s apt for use in hazardous work environments with heavy machinery. The toe box is wide and round for extra comfort, so you can easily fit in even a thick sock. The outsole is oil, acid and heat resistant up to 284 degrees Fahrenheit.

Overall, these boots fit true to size. They are made for wearing with thick socks, so they have a wider fit over the instep and at the toes.

Lace-up Boots

How about a lace-up winter boot? Blundstone makes this model with a steel shank for maximum shock absorption and arch support. It’s based on the original work boot designs Blundstone started making in the 1800s.

This shoe does have a low profile right above the arch. It can feel constrictive if you have wide feet, high-profile instep or you wear your pair with thick socks.

You can of course ease out the fit at the laces if it gets too tight, but in general, the fit of this boot is snug. We recommend going up about half to one full size bigger than normal, and if you’re between sizes opting for the larger one.

The boots are water-resistant, so you should be able to weather your way through rain and snow.

FAQs

Are Blundstones Waterproof?

Blundstones are water-resistant, but not completely waterproof. They’re leather boots and treated to be as waterproof as possible while maintaining their natural breathability. However, many owners of Blundstones boots would tell you that the boots can handle rain, snow and even standing in a puddle.

Do Justin Boots Run Big or Small?

Justin boots tend to run about a half size larger than true to size. The fit of a cowboy boot should be snug, so for the best results you should order half a size smaller than your normal size. If you’re between sizes, go for the smaller one.

What Size Is 4.5 in Blundstones?

A Blundstone size 4.5 is the equivalent of a women’s US size 7.5. This is the right size for a foot length of approximately 9 inches, and roughly the same as a men’s 5.5.

Are Blundstone Boots Good for Wide Feet?

Yes, some Blundstone models are excellent for wide feet, but some might feel a bit too snug. If your feet are wider than standard, opt for the rounded toe models rather than the v-shaped models. Blundstone work boots are generally a good fit for those with wide feet.
