The Australian family business has been known worldwide for 150 years, so there is a lot to say about Blundstone. Now you're wondering, how did this company come about? Let's go back in time for a moment.

The history of Blundstone

In 1853 the Blundstone family settled in the capital of the Australian island of Tasmania. John Blundstone starts importing boots from England. A little later he decides to make his own boots from locally produced leather. This hobby became such a success that John founded his own company called 'Blundstone' in Tasmania in 1870. John built his shoe factory in the ultra-modern center of Hobart. This shoe factory could produce as many as 2000 pairs of boots and shoes per week.

When the First World War broke out, John's shoe brand was doing less well. In order to keep the company going and continue selling good quality boots, Blundstone was taken over by the English Cuthbertson family in 1932. The Cuthbertson family already had a tannery in Hobart. During the acquisition, the production activities of the two companies were merged and they continued under the name Blundstone. This choice was made because this name is associated with quality and reliability.


Today, Blundstone has been around for 150 years. Despite this, the brand continues to expand and sells products to more than 50 countries in 5 continents around the world. Blundstone has grown into one of the world's most recognizable shoe brands. While the brand continues to grow, it retains its Tasmanian roots and family values. The head office is still located in Tasmania.

Since 1870, Blundstone has developed new ways to provide unparalleled comfort and protection from the elements. The company invests heavily in research and works closely with its partners to gain access to the best and latest technologies available. Blundstone likes to apply this knowledge in practice. This is one of the things that sets them apart. Furthermore, the collaboration with customers, the quality and, above all, the pleasure that the brand radiates makes them distinctive. At Blundstone they will do everything they can to satisfy a customer. Their motto is as follows: “A pair of Blundstones suits every individual. Whether you prefer city trips or your heart lies in the outdoor world.”
