Since 1870 we’ve been making the best boots bar none. It all started when John and Eliza Blundstone decided to leave the rain in England, for the rain in Melbourne. They were blown off course and landed in Hobart. But this turned out to be a blessing in disguise.
The organisation consists of a highly-integrated group of companies owned and operated by a family whose history can be traced back to the 1840s.
This family purchased Blundstone Pty Ltd in 1932, amalgamating their footwear manufacturing operations under the Blundstone name.
Despite having grown into one of the world’s most recognisable boot brands, the company remains Tasmanian and retains its family values.
