Thanks to the team at Gear Patrol for featuring us twice in recent days, first on their list of staff picks where Nick Caruso notes that he has “had these green-on-brown Blundstones for five years, and like a good watch or favorite jacket, I truly look forward to wearing them." As well as recommending them to anyone who asks, he talks about how the Blundstone 519's "slosh through New York puddles during rush hour just as well as open fields during a long-weekend camping excursion; they’re lightweight, comfortable enough to walk miles in and wear in fantastically."

But what truly makes a quality pair of boots? The Gear Patrol team examined this too, featuring the Blundstone Original 500 Boots: and how the "open cell, breathable foam material — positioned directly under the heel — combined with a cushioned midsole provides a high level of comfort from the first wear" as well as how easy they are to break in.
