The new Blundstone 1440 has arrived. The colour is a lovely deep reddy brown called Redwood. It's a round toe, leather lined boot and is a real beauty to behold.

We've also taken delivey of our first batch of Blundstone 1394 Chestnut Dress boots, Blundstone 1464 Grey Pebble Grained Leather boots and Blundstone 1471 Rustic Brown Brogue boots.

If you're a Redback wearer, you'll want to look at the Redback UBJK which is Jarrah Brown - a great alternative to the very dark brown Redback UBOK.

Don't forget to call us (weekdays between 10am and 4pm) if you would like to chat about brands, styles or sizing.

We've just taken delivery of a new Redback boot - the jarrah brown UBJK. It's a lighter brown than the UBOK and USBOK, and the elastic is a lighter brown too. It's a great looking boot which, in our mind, is the first Redback that steps away from the utility boot market and nudges its way into the everyday wear category - possibly even fashion.

We still have some Blundstone boots in damaged boxes, so please drop us a line if you're happy to put up with a dented box in return for a discount.

Our favourite Blundstone at the moment is still the light brown grained leather 1445.

Don't forget that we love to chat about the boots that we sell - we're here from 10am until 4pm Monday to Friday.

We're here to chat between the hours of 10am and 4pm, Monday to Friday - please do call us if there's anything that you would like to discuss.

Don't forget there's a great new Blundstone style - the 1445. It's a lighter brown than the 500, and slightly lighter than the 550 too. It's a lined boot with a grained leather finish, and it looks amazing.

We've taken delivery of our four new Orca Bay styles. They are well-priced, well-made and beautifully styled Chelsea boots.

We've also added Solovair boots to our range. They are made in Northamptonshire in the UK by NPS Shoes. They are Goodyear welted (and therefore re-solable) and are stunning boots.

We're here to chat between the hours of 10am and 4pm, Monday to Friday - please do call us if there's anything that you would like to discuss.

There's a great new Blundstone style - the 1445. It's a lighter brown than the 500, and slightly lighter than the 550 too. It's a lined boot with a grained leather finish, and it looks great.

We're taking delivery of four different Orca Bay styles at the end of September. They are well-priced, well-made and beautifully styled Chelsea boots.

As mushroom season approaches (the field variety) and blackberries start to ripen, it's time to start thinking about that new pair of boots that you've been promising yourself.

We're here to chat between the hours of 10am and 4pm, Monday to Friday - please do call us if there's anything that you would like to discuss.

Spring is sprung, the grass is ris
I wonder where the birdies is
(Anonymous, but quoted regularly by Spike Milligan)

It's lovely to see our countryside and towns greening up as the leaves start to open on the trees and hedgerows. Birds are nesting, and tadpoles are growing little legs, poised to start breathing the air as their little gills develop into lungs.

We've taken delivery of the new lightweight leather Blundstones - the same soles as the canvas styles, but with soft nubuck uppers. There are two colours - the brown Blundstone 1429 and the black Blundstone 1428. They look great!

I recently made a life-changing discovery - if you polish nubuck boots with a normal waxy polish, they go shiny, but keep that slightly patchy nubuck look. You can also hear the leather sighing with relief as the polish nourishes it. You lose the nubuck velvety nap, but the finish is stunning. I've done this with my pair of Blundstone 585s and I marvel at them every day (unless something more exciting happens - we do lead a faily sedate life over here!).

Here's to the spring, and all the warmth and happiness that it will bring...

Happy New Year!

2015 saw the arrival of some great new Blundstone styles. The lace-ups have been flying out, as have the new burgundy dress boots. The new blue and red canvas Blundstones were starting to take off by the end of the summer, and the new hole punch boot that Blundstone descibes as a 'ladies' boot has been really popular.

Redback boots continue to please with their tough design. They are incredibly hard-wearing, but I'm still happy to wear mine to business meetings (although my Blunnies are still my favourites, especially my new shiny pair of 1302 burgundy dress boots).

We've replaced our Muck Boots with Grubs Boots - they are pretty much identical in look and specification.    

We're looking for a couple of new brands to add to our range, so watch this space.

Thanks for your loyalty over the years, and thank you for all the praise emails that you send regarding our customer service - it's always great to hear from you - Pete Bryden CEO

Most of the new Blundstone styles are now in, and top-up stock is arriving every few days. The lace-up boots look great, and the new ladies' hole-punch boot is stunning. There's a burgundy dress boot, and a burgundy kids' boot, adding a great new finish to the range, and the popular chocolate brown suede boot has been re-introduced.

We've added a new style to our Redback range - the UBCH. It's a crazy horse nubuck boot with a slightly more refined look than the other Redback styles.
