Here’s a sneak peak of the newest Blundstone styles that will be available in the U.S. this fall. Rustic brown leather and a lace-up chukka boot compliment the classic Blundstone styles and colors, while spicing things up a bit just in time for cooler weather.
The 260 will be available as a 261 in chocolate suede, and a 267 in black leather. The Blundstone 410 stout brown is back, along with the same boot in black, the 413. The 585 rustic brown appears similar in styling to the 550 series, but will be offered in both a standard and fleece footbed version. Most unusual of the group is the Blundstone 268, an aussie-inspired chukka, complete with side elastics and trademark pull tag.
Finally – a comprehensive Blundstone style guide! Want to know which Blundstones have leather lining? Drilex moisture wicking lining in the toe area? Are sewn with waterproof thread? Now all that wonderful technical info is in one place.

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.

Exclusive to Sugar River Outfitters, the New Blundstone 410 coming in with two options. The 410 feature the traditional 2.5mm thick tough leather uppers and are meant to take a beating. Even the sole, which is an upgrade from the dual density PU to a PU mid-sole and TPU outer sole, is build to get you through any job site or down any road. If you are working hard or hardly working in the BL410 you can rest assured your foot will stay dry and comfortable with a Drylex liner to wick away any moisture from your foot and leather that has been treated with a water repellent to keep water out. The first option is the ultra comfortable BL490 insole, which feature two poron inserts for superb cushion and support. This option is therefore fittingly called the BL410C or Comfort. While the second option offers not only the BL490 insole, but also a fleece insole which will have your feet thinking they are in your favorite slippers all day long. This slipper like insole will ensure your feet will stay warm even in the coldest of weather. The only problem you may find is your slippers maybe not feel as comfortable anymore.
