Boots come in many different shapes in sizes, with some aimed toward a night on the town and others providing much-needed stability. Blundstone is a brand that has been accomplishing both of those tasks dating back to the 1850s, so it’s safe to say it sure knows what it’s doing. For that reason, upon countless others, it’s hard to go wrong with the Blundstone #510, the Australian shoemakers’ hardworking take on the classic Chelsea boot.
The #510s are as sturdy a pair of work boots as you can find, boasting a weatherproof and ultra-durable upper composed of oiled leather. Elemental protection is vital this time of year, especially with how unpredictable forecasts can get, so you’ll be glad to have that 2.5mm oiled leather barrier when inclement weather strikes. For added comfort, the boot’s cozy insole utilizes Poron XRD cushioning, which offers shock-absorbing capabilities and results in a much easier day of on-foot labor.
In addition to its padded interior, the Australian-made stompers sit on a durable, slip-resistant TPU outsole that provides bolstered grip, as well as a polyurethane-crafted midsole for the sake of easy-going wearability. Although it’s an interesting juxtaposition, these bewilderingly comfortable boots were made to take on anything thrown at them.
Chelsea boots may be timeless, but few have proven to be as capable of withstanding the test of it as these are. Blundstone’s #501 Boots are available to purchase on Huckberry for $200.
