Introducing the NEW Blundstone 500 TPU!
Blundstone’s legendary 500 series boots are now made with TPU thermo-urethane) soles.
The new TPU soles feature:
- Oil, acid and organic fat resistance
- Outsole temperature resistance up to 140 degrees C
- PORON® in the heel strike zone to increase shock protection
- Anergonomically engineered toe spring
- Steel shank to ensure correct step flex point
- The new Blundstone 500/510 are also made with even thicker leather to make sure your feet stay warm and dry no matter the weather.
Whether you’re headed to the office or the outback, Blundstone 500s offer extraordinary comfort, timeless style, and they’re now more durable than ever!
How do you improve upon the classic, original Blundstone boot? Replace their already high quality, long-lasting, and rugged soles with an even more superior material. The new TPU-soled boots are guaranteed to impress with their temperature, oil, and acid resistance, long-term moisture resistance, and ergonomic design for maximum comfort.
We’ve just received a full container of 2012 Blundstone boots, including the all new TPU-soled 500 series, and beginning the second week of October, we will be selling ONLY the new 500 and 510.
What are some benefits of the new soles?
The new TPU-soled Blundstones are even more durable, water resistant, long
lasting, and comfortable than the classic Blundstone 500s you know and
love. In an effort to continually improve upon their legendary boots, and
uphold the highest standards of quality, Blundstone has upgraded to TPU
soles to ensure the maximum lifespan of each boot they manufacture. TPU-soled
Blundstones are also oil and acid resistant, are able to resist temperatures up to 140 degrees Celsius, and are highly resistant to hydolysis and microbial attack.
How can you tell the difference between non-TPU soled 500/510s and the new TPU soled 500/510s?
Each pair of Blundstones has a manufacturing date clock molded into the
sole. The month and year the boot was manufactured are indicated on the
dial. If the center of the dial reads “11″, the boots were made in 2011 and have the new TPU sole. Blundstone 500/510s made prior to 2011 were constructed with the standard PU (polyurethane) sole.
