Some dress boots miss the point. You do not spend your whole life dressed up. The classic Blundstone understands. This is a boot that’s as comfortable on the trail as it is in town. And the polyurethane soles make a lot of sense in a country like the USA where winter can often be cold-not to mention wet, slushy, and miserable. They love the punishment. The thinner sole profile lets you dress them up or down- they do a nice job of shipping the formal ‘edge’ off a suit. The patented Shock Portection System absorbs 33% of the abuse so your bones and joints don’t have to. Weatherproff leather uppers fused into the soles. Square toe, medium width. Is it a casual dress boot? Is it a dressy casual boot? You decide.
