Do you notice your feet at work?
If they are tired, sore or have been injured, it’s time you thought of purchasing a pair of Blundstone Boots. Why?
This company knows how to protect the 26 bones in each foot, yes 52 bones all told. And, not only bones, but all the joints, ligaments and tendons we tend to take for granted until we mistreat them with poorly made shoes and boots. Keep in mind that fit and quality are most important to keep our footwear from causing back pain as well as foot pain – we need comfortable and supportive shoes.
How far do you walk?
Many people keep track of the distance they walk during the day with an app on their phone. It is estimated that we walk four times around the globe in our lifetime so, it is well worth investing in the best boots – that is a pair of Blundstone work boots, shoes or gumboots.
The original Blundstones, John and Eliza, arrived from England in 1855 but did not start the business of importing shoes and boots from England until 1870. The company manufactured boots in Liverpool Street, Hobart and has kept developing and improving their boots to this day.
137 years later
Blundstone’s technology and innovation is the key to their success which has been acknowledged at the 2015 Good Design Awards (Product Design - Commercial and Industrial) for the Blundstone 980 Underground Mining Boot. This is on top of the 2015 award for excellence in Australian Product design by Powerhouse Museum in Sydney.
American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA)has given its approval of Blundstone products which must be a high recommendation for the products. They must recognise that the patented Shock Protection System (SPS) assists with the correction of orthopaedic problems and also incorporates XRD® Technology to provide superior shock absorption.
The annual rainfall for Hobart is as shown below:
Long Term Average 53.0mm 16.0 days
Wettest July 156.8mm 2010
Perhaps it was the rainfall and the number of farmers and fishermen requiring waterproof footwear that initiated the manufacture of gumboots.
So, if you live in a cold, high rainfall region or work in a wet zone (cold store, fishing boat, farm etc.) you may be in need of an excellent pair of gumboots. Look no further than Blundstone!
Italian technology is used to make a range of gumboots in the Hobart factory. There are three best quality PVC thicknesses used to create comfort, light weight and long life gumboots from recycled PVC.
Last but NOT least …
Blundstone continually improves its processes, quality of materials and of course services in all its business sectors. The company maintains excellence in the areas of employment, suppliers and value for customers.
