Work Boots and Shoes, Casual Boots, and Accessories

Blundstone 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.

In 2000, Blundstone acquired the iconic John Bull brand, which was founded in New Zealand in 1934.

Our Homes

Our headquarters are based in Moonah, Tasmania, housing our administration, sales, marketing, communications, quality management, customer service, and logistics sections. It’s also home to our research and design centre and gumboot factory, with the capacity to manufacture 400,000 pairs of gumboots a year.

Our Manufacturing

We are committed to making the highest quality boots for everyday work and comfort. We manufacture our leather footwear overseas with current sourcing from Vietnam, India, Romania, China and Mexico. Our gumboots are manufactured at our headquarters in Hobart.

We employ our own personnel at the overseas facilities to ensure the standard of manufacturing meets our stringent quality standards. Blundstone is a Quality Endorsed Company to ISO9001.

Our Products

Since 1870, Blundstone has made the toughest, no-nonsense footwear for work and play.

Decades of innovative design and production mean Blundstone now oversees a global supply chain bringing together the best ideas, components and designs to complement a wide range of products – from the iconic elastic-sided boots loved worldwide, to gumboots, lace-up safety footwear for men and women, heavy industrial footwear, school shoes and casual boots. Our products are developed by a team based in Hobart that uses the best resources available from all over the world to develop footwear that keeps pushing the boundaries.

Our ongoing research and development activity sees constant improvement in comfort, protection, performance and aesthetics to match the great fit and value. The Blundstone and John Bull boots we produce today are just as tough as they’ve always been, but are now a lot more comfortable too.
