Frequently Asked Questions
Are Blundstone boots waterproof?
Our weatherproof leather is as waterproof as any leather can be, while still allowing the foot to breathe. If properly cared for, they will prevent most water penetration, keeping your feet warm and dry. Blundstone’s unique construction with a limited number of seams means there are fewer places for water to get in. No leather boots are 100% waterproof.
What is SPS?
Blundstone’s Shock Protection System (SPS) disperses shock at heel strike and reduces skeletal stress. SPS is incorporated into the boot construction to absorb energy from impact at heel strike. Revolutionary tests indicate that an average of 33% less shock is transmitted to the leg at walking pace. This shock would otherwise be absorbed by your feet, knees and vertebrae.
Can I put a footbed in my Blundstone boots?
Yes, definitely! A few customers will find that the fit may be a bit loose, and a footbed helps provide a more snug fit. Footbeds also help insulate the body from winter elements. Blundstone boots are fully compatible with custom orthotics.
