Congrats to Blundstone on 150 Years!

Posted by Kristin on Aug 1st 2020

Blundstone turns 150 years old this year, and we could not be more proud to carry this awesome brand in our store. This is without a doubt one of our favorite brands at Shoe Fly. Blundstone's are classic and appeal to women of all ages.  With over 150 different styles to choose from, across their men's and women's lines, there is no reason why you can’t justify having more than 1 pair in your closet!  The #1 seller in the US is Blundstone's iconic Chelsea boot, specifically the 585 (Rustic Brown color), which was introduced to the market 50 years ago.  At Shoe Fly, another popular style is the 1351 which is reminiscent of the 585 with a slightly higher shaft and a bit more design detail around the goring.

While the brand started as a utility boot in the 1800’s, Blundstone has grown into a fashion statement.  Blundstone fits into the current fashion landscape because of the shift in practicality to function over style – however younger generations have figured out how to make these fashionable, and mature women enjoy them for their comfort and simplicity.  At Shoe Fly, one of our biggest pleasures comes from selling the same shoe to different generations.

Avid fans lovingly refer to the boots as “Blunnies", and if you have not tried on a pair of “Blunnies” you MUST come see us. This is a boot that is best served by trying on before purchasing. The team at Shoe Fly can help you find the style and size that best fits your lifestyle.

Especially during these unprecedented times, we gratefully thank all of our customers who have ventured into Shoe Fly this summer, or purchased from us online.  Thank you for playing a part in keeping the charm of locally-owned businesses alive and well in our communities.
