    I love my blunnies! I've been wearing Blundstone boots for 20 years and was delighted to find this taller version at such a great price *and* in the 6.5 size. The AU sizing means the X.5 size is wider, not a 1/2 size. These fit perfectly. The boots may at first feel a little snug across the top, but this is normal for all my blunnies and they will break in nicely. Thank you, thank you!

    I wanted boots for working in garden, redoing landscape, shoveling snow. Recognizing these are 2nds, I am not surprised to have a problem or two. They are difficult for me (active 73 year-old female retiree) to get on with socks on (cannot "slide" into them without socks pulling too tight in the toes). My feet are narrow, so the problem is not the size. I had to trim a very (skin) irritating heavy (maybe plastic) thread at the top edge. Will have to wear standard work jeans tucked in to prevent skin irritation from the top of the boot since long socks simply work down and give no protection. I couldn't find this sort of boot locally in a size anywhere close to what I needed so these will have to work.

    I bought these boots for work, or rather for both my works: I have two jobs that keep me on my feet, one inside and one outside and I needed a pair of boots to take me between the two without a costume change. I figured I would need to put in an arch support, but my first day of wearing them did not require one despite being on my feet for 12 hours. I'm hoping I can keep them water resistant with some extra care, and I am thrilled with the heavy duty (but not actually heavy in weight) thick soles. I wear an 8 and they fit well with medium-weight wool socks. Not the most stylish muck boots in the world but not bad, either.

    Have 2 other pair of Blundstones and purchased these based on quality and comfort. The 2nds appear to be some blemishes, more discolorations, on the surface of the leather. It is nothing that will affect the wear of the boot. Wear a size 10 in women's and ordered the 7. Good, comfortable fit right out of the box. Very pleased. Recommend them.

    I put my right foot in and was happy right away... my foot felt like 'it was home' and I hoped the left would be just the same, and yes, it was! Comfort. I examined these thoroughly to see the 2nd's reason, and found the angle of a vertical seem questionable, and their QC probably was not happy with a color variation in the leather peicing. The quality of leather and soles are perfect. From experience, I know sizing is tricky with this brand and the particular model. I am women's U.S 8.5 and ordered the 5.5 on this 548 model and it is just right. I can wear a medium or thin sock now as I'm conditioning them to my feet. These Blunnies will last for decades and just get softer with wear.

    i've been a blunny fan for decades, and thought I'd try these out. Same great Blundstone fit, which for me seems to mean order about a half size larger than you usually do. Can't really find the '2nd' part on this pair, and if I had room, I'd seriously consider a second pair of these just to extend their lives (I tend to be pretty rough on boots)

    Boots were comfortable right out of the box and felt true to size. While the leather is extremely soft and supple, the craftsmanship appears durable. I have never owned a pair of Blundstones, but their quality is renowned. They look and feel like five star boots, but I need to give them six months before truly knowing, hence the four star rating. So far, so good!

    All leather and great Blundstone comfort. Keep them oiled and they will keep you dry. Very cool boots.

    A solid leather quality boot built for style and work. If you like the Blundstone tradesman boots, check them out. You can't get them this cheap down under. AND they are so comfortable. I bought my last pair in Australia in 2004 and still wear them a few times a week. Another bonus - these are unique. You won't see a lot of these around town.
