The premium leather upper is oil-, acid-, and fat-resistant and the durable TPU outsole is heat-resistant up to 290-degrees F, making this boot perfect for kitchen professionals. A polyurethane midsole and steel shank provide a supportive fit that fights foot fatigue when you're on the feet all day, and Poron XRD cushioning in the heel strike area takes the sting out of your step.

Comfy, quirky, cool...
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
I've been looking at getting blundstones for some time but never bit the bullet until recently. I'd heard they are comfortable, durable and the easy on/off looked appealing.
