I love my Blundstone 500’s. They’re the perfect footwear for life. Whatever I’m up to, they can handle it. Long walk? Throw on a pair of wool hiking socks, add some arch supports, and I’m good to go. Super comfy. Wet city streets? No problem. They’re darn near waterproof up to that elastic side panel. Traipsing through the countryside? Mud and the occasional manure pile? Done. They give me lots of traction, and they only look better when a little dirty and scuffed.
