    These boots are awesome; gardening, running errands, in the snow. They are my go-to boot now.

    These are the best. Very similar to other pairs I’ve owned. The leather is a bit tight at first, but they are great!

    Tried these a number of years ago and wasn't able to slide my foot in. Not sure if this is common or unusual, but I thought I'd try them again. First few times take some work, but they're getting better and better.
    Wear, on the other hand, is comfortable out of the box and improving each time. I also have received a few compliments.
    Hoping that these will be a good, long-lasting addition to my footwear collection.

    These look very much like a Chelsea overboot I own, except that they have a leather upper and it's a more substantial shoe. The look is very reminiscent of bulbous 90's era shoes. However, I do find claims that they run wide a little exaggerated; at least compared to Doc Martens, Chaco, Born or any brand that runs really wide.

    The Blundstone description claims "premium leather" and it doesn't seem to crease easily, even though it's not super thick, either. There's actually a dullness to the leather, which isn't unexpected for a work boot in "stout brown" color. Unfortunately, there was also a large sticker on the leather upper, which left behind some glue residue upon removal. I ripped it off so quickly that I'm not even sure what it said and I couldn't find it for this review.

    I didn't notice any defects on the pair I received, although they do appear to have been returned at some point. The "cushioned insole" that Blundstone touts isn't actually much of an insole at all, because it's rather thin. Oddly, the pair I received came with 2 insoles installed. The other was a Dr. Scholl's 3/4 length insole, which I guess was left behind by a previous purchaser. I can see how STP could have easily missed this 2nd insole, since it was hidden underneath the Blundstone insole, but receiving new shoes, with used insoles, is nasty and unclean.

    These come in Australian shoe sizes, which seems to be identical to UK sizing for men, but not women. I normally wear a 9.5 - 10 in boots (Chippewa, Clarks), a 10 for dress shoes (Florsheim) and a 10.5 in athletic shoes (Nike, Vans), so I sized down 1 from a 10 to a 9. This was a perfect fit for my smaller foot, but the toes on my longer foot, lightly touch the ends, ever so often. However, exchanging them isn't an option, since STP is sold out in size 10, and I think they'll be just fine. My toes, and heel, still have plenty of room to move around and I think a size 10 might be too big, anyhow. Considering the great price I received on these from STP, I think it's well worth the risk.

    In case you're wondering why I'd size up to a 10, rather than a 9.5, well, that's due to something I read. I haven't verified this, but apparently Aussie sizing designates half sizes as wide widths, so a 9.5 would just be wider, without any further length added. A wider boot wouldn't help me, so I'd need to size up to a 10. This is certainly something to keep in mind when trying to size yourself, although you may want to verify this first.
