13 June 2017
I have had these boots for 4 months so I feel like I can leave an honest and informed review. They are the most comfortable pair of boots I have ever owned. Throughout my life I have always struggled with my instep, forever pulling the muscles because of a lack of support and I also get attacks of Raynauds syndrome (extreme loss of blood flow in my toes / feet) Not in these! They are supportive, warm and durable in all the weather conditions I have encountered so far. Out of the box I treated them with a waterproofing spray but nothing else because I didn't want to lose the rustic look of the leather. They are now well worn in. It did take a while for the leather to soften and mould to my feet, and the elastic section was rubbing my ankles slightly at first but now it's like walking on clouds. They are very lightweight even with the thick sole; which absorbs shock very well. 4 months down the line and I have just waxed my boots with Mink oil for the first time. PLEASE NOTE; doing this will DARKEN the leather indefinitely, as it says on the Blundstone website. But my boots are starting to get a little scuffed and scratched, so it's time for some extra protection. The boots still have a rustic look, they are just much darker now, but I still love them to pieces and I can say for sure that I will be purchasing them again in the future. I have had so many compliments on them too. Overall one of the best purchases I've probably ever made!
