How to care for your boots

How to care for your boots

Always clean your boots after use by brushing caked dirt away from welts and seams, then wipe leather with a clean, damp cloth. If your boots become wet, never dry them by a fire or artificial heat source as this will cause the leather to harden and shrink, and in extreme cases, pull away from the sole. Always allow the boots to dry at room temperature.

To keep your boots water resistant and pliable, you should dress the leather after cleaning with a suitable leather dressing.

Avoid exposing your boots to chemical contamination, as this may reduce the life expectancy. Leather is absorbent by nature and strong acids and alkalis will do irreparable damage. Such commonplace substances such as milk and salt are highly damaging. In the event of exposure, rinse the contaminant from the boots thoroughly before applying a leather dressing.

Footwear Storage

All footwear should be stored in a dry, cool place when not in use.

The Right Fit

We’re passionate about feet. It’s our thing. Did you know that most people have one foot that’s smaller than the other? And that most of us have 26 bones in each foot, but some have 28? (The extras are on the bottom of the foot just behind the big toe).

So, we’ve designed a range of footwear that means you can find the right Blundstone for you. Different footbeds providing varying levels of cushioning and support, different lasts, lacing systems (traditional laces vs zips vs the Boa system), different leathers, “V” cut vs Chelsea cut - all of these variations bring diversity to the sizing and fit.

It means that there’s sure to be the perfect Blundstone for your feet.

Try on different styles and sizes, try them on both feet, and try to shop in the afternoon when your feet may be slightly swollen – this helps avoid buying boots that are too small. And, be sure to walk around – your feet usually get two sizes larger when you stand up.

What size are you?

Blundstone boots and shoes are marked with Australian sizing. Blundstone 1/2 sizes refer to width only, not the length.
