Blundstone x L.L.Bean Collab for the First Time on a Pair of Chelsea Boots

Chelsea boots are some of the most iconic and versatile footwear in the game, with a long history dating back to the Victorian era. The Australian-based label Blundstone is one of the original manufacturers of the shoe and has been making famously durable and comfortable footwear since 1870. The brand is best known for its Chelsea boots but offers a variety of equally trustworthy boots in other styles. L.L.Bean may not be famous for Chelsea boots, but the American label got its start with similarly iconic shoes, the Duck Boots. True to the label’s roots, Duck Boots (or the Maine Hunting Shoe) were waterproof boots designed for the outdoors. Although these labels are on opposite sides of the globe, they both have a history of outdoors appreciation and rugged gear built to explore, making the Blundstone x L.L.Bean Chelsea Boots that just dropped the perfect (and first) collaboration between the two heritage brands.

The Blundstone x L.L.Bean Chelsea Boot combines Blundstone’s iconic Original 500 Chelsea Boot in the classic Stout Brown shade, with a touch of L.L.Bean flair via buffalo plaid details on the gore paneling. These rugged kicks feature high-quality water-resistant leather, those dual pull tabs that are synonymous with Blundstones, and an L.L.Bean logo embossed on the leather near the heel. They fit true to size and feature a snug fit across the upper and the toe area.

If you’re unfamiliar with how Blundstones work, it’s important to note that they take some time to break in. They may be a bit tight at first, but the leather will mold to your feet over time, and you’ll have the perfect-fitting pair of boots after taking some time to break them in.
