In celebration of its 150th anniversary, Blundstone has released an exclusive, limited-edition #150 boot, fashioned on the brand’s iconic Chelsea boot style. Established in Tasmania in 1870, Blundstone remains 100 percent Tasmanian, family-owned and continues to be shaped by the vision and values of its founders and owners.
The #150 boot is inspired by Blundstone’s iconic #500 boot. The #150 features supple 1.8m thick premium auburn leather and a hand screen-printed and stamped bronze lining. The number 150 is embossed into the outer heel leather to mark the milestone and further touches include smooth leather rolled edges and a #150 gold update on the iconic pull tabs.
“Our 150 Anniversary boot celebrates our heritage of quality and craftsmanship and understated design,” states Joe Carfora, Global Lifestyle Range Manager. “The supple, auburn leather upper draws on inspiration from the wilderness of our island home. The lining elevates this boot above our existing range in honor of the occasion. Our #150 is a true collector’s item!”
Available for a limited time only, Blundstone’s anniversary boot has been produced in a limited run and will be available internationally in more than 70 countries throughout 2020. The #150 is now available online at the Blundstone website and select REI and L.L. Bean locations for $204.95.
