50 Years of the Original 500 Boots Mentioned in MR Mag

Friday, 15 February 2019

While Blundstones have been around since the 1800's, the Original 500 series is celebrating 50 years since its debut and since becoming one of the key boot types for the brand.  And MR Mag covered this the other day in "Blundstone Is Celebrating 50 Years Of Its Original 500 Series."

The "Original 500 Series boots have appealed to farmers, builders and workers with its rugged, all-around charm. As decades rolled by, the all-day comfort, easy on/easy off design and classic style of the boot appealed to additional audiences, resulting in adventurers, creatives and functional fashion wearers becoming true advocates of the 500 Series and Blundstone brand."

And with over 25 million pairs of the Original 500 Series sold to date, the initial design has adapted to an ever-changing environment and remains one of our top boot ranges for men and women.

“There would be an uproar if we were to change the boot much,” said Steve Gunn, Blundstone CEO. “Those that wear Blundstones swear by their comfort and never miss a chance to talk about their devotion and love they have for their boots,” added Kate Shevack, managing partner of Brand Initiatives Group, Blundstone’s U.S. marketing arm.
