Crisp leaves and brisk temperatures mean it’s finally time we can dress. There’s nothing quite like the feeling of layering up and flexing advanced fits for fall weather, especially when you have more sartorial options at your disposal. While we love our comfy mules and plush sandals, it may be time for alternative heat for your feet once the elements come into play, and we can’t think of a better choice than the humble Chelsea boot.
The folks at Australian footwear company Blundstone have been perfecting the art of boot-making for over 150 years. When they introduced its #500 series in the 1960s, a collection of elastic-sided Chelsea boots, they quickly gained a cult following for its rugged appeal and all-day comfort. With over 25 million pairs sold globally, the timeless silhouette hasn’t changed much since its inception, because why mess with perfection?
Blundstone has, however, evolved with the times and now offers a wide range of Chelsea boot options for both men and women that work with a variety of styles. Browse our favorites below and explore more of Blundstone’s offerings at blundstone.com.
