I have been wearing Blundstones for over 20 years. Since the company has switched its manufacturing operations from Australia to Southeast Asia, the quality of the stitching has improved, but the quality of the materials has declined. My family and I have ordered many Blunnies from Sierra and have been satisfied. However, I am disappointed to say that the quality of these factory 2nds is poor. I currently own three pairs (different models) of Blundstones. I purchased this pair for my father and the leather was significantly thinner, cheaper than a pair I ordered for him last year from Sierra. The finish on the leather was substandard and the sizing, in this particular pair, was smaller. Therefore, I've returned the boots.
