What can I say, I love my Blundstone boots! I was a little hesitant to purchase my first pair, since I try not to jump on any bandwagons and everyone in my neighborhood seemed to own a pair. But as soon as I put them on I knew I had to have them. I also realized there was no bandwagon, they are actually just the perfect everyday boot. Living in Vancouver we get rain, a lot of rain, some snow, and lots of brisk morning air. These boots go from playground, puddles, snow and up a mountain. They handle all the elements and are extremely comfortable. I have been eyeing the kids boots but haven’t brought myself to purchase such an investment, although I am sure they are worth the money.
