Blundstone Boots come in men’s whole sizes only (for example 8-12). These sizes correspond to women’s half size measurements (8=9 1/2; 12=13 1/2) If you have wider feet or want a snugger fit we recommend going up one whole size.

Tips for Finding on Best Blundstone Boots Sizing

Determine your foot width

-If you’re an in-between size, order the larger size for a slightly more comfortable fit with thicker socks.
Australia’s iconic Blundstone is available in many width sizes including Regular (US M), Wide (US W) and Extra Wide (US WW).

-First determine your foot width by taking out a piece of string, tie it snug around the widest part of your foot girth at the toes. Take measurements from one side of where you made that measurement, to the other side on either side of your ball joint area. Refer to our list below that tells you how wide each US Size is converted into centimeters or millimetres.

Most Blundstone boots are made to be quite narrow, so the recommended width is anything less than a “medium” width shoe. This is because in addition to being tight fitting in the toe area, the Blundstone boots have an inbuilt elastic gusset in each boot that will stretch around wider feet – but only up to a point where it starts compromising comfort.

So this really depends on what your foot size is and how wide you need your shoes, but if you do not have extra wide feet at all I say go with something down around a 3 or 4 Select grade for low-volume inserts because they are fairly thin–less good for people who need lots of arch support or additional cushioning.

Find the correct size for your feet

The correct sizing for boots is usually true for nearly all high-end or popular brands, but it can vary between manufacturers. If you are ever feeling unsure after measuring your foot length and width, always try both sizes on before deciding which one to buy! Not only does this give you an accurate representation of what looks best on your foot but it also helps determine if the manufacturer made an error with their sizing chart.

Troubleshooting when trying to find your perfect Blundstone size might include:
-Checking the manufacturer’s website for sizing charts and diagrams.
-Contacting the store where you bought your boots and asking them what return/exchange policy they have.
-Taking a measurement of your foot; use wemissmeasurements.com to get measurements that can be compared to chart measurements or this article from Kinetics to get an approximation of feet circumference at various levels on the foot, regardless of shoe type. Size up if you feel pressure near any joint in your toes; try also wearing the socks listed on their site; people with wide feet may find relief by going up one full size and wear thicker socks than those with

Determining the sole length of the boot

The best way to find the right size for you is to take out a measuring tape or piece of string, stand on it with your heel touching the ground and then measure from the back of your heel until the tip of your longest toe.

The best way to find the third-best size for your boot is by measuring the sole. This can be found by putting a ruler on the ground and lining it up so that it touches the top-most point of your heel, then measure down to just below where you would like to cut off your shoe or boots. If this distance measures about 8 inches (20 cm) then that means you belong in a size 10 for Blundstone Boots.

Finding a shoe that is appropriate for you and your lifestyle

Here is a small introduction on shoe sole types, and determining the right length of the boot for you depending on what occasion it is.
Ankle Boots: If you are looking for something stylish and chic, with an elongated heel height than Ankle Boots might be better suited for you. These boots tint to your calf muscles with their shorter insole height.

Zip Up Boot: Zip Up Boots have a taller insole that go up to just below or just beneath your knee, and zip all the way up till they reach your calf. They usually come with laces in-between the insole and outsole to help tight them around your leg more securely without stretching its shape or color too much.

The length of the sole is one factor that many people don’t take into consideration. Most boots have a sole that’s at least 1 inch taller than the average shoe, making them too high for people who prefer lower shoes.

Others find stiletto heels tough on their shins and won’t be able to tolerate anything higher than an inch heel. Matching the length of your foot with appropriate footwear is another important consideration when choosing stylish footwear – which you can also do by contacting us with any questions!

Getting a pair of boots that are comfortable and will last you many years to come

There are actually a lot of factors that determine what shoe could be “appropriate for you”. It depends on your use, walk style, alignment, level of activity… it’s really not as simple as finding the right shoe.

If you’re looking to stay comfortable but also want to make sure your shoes last years and still look good – I would recommend investing in a good pair of boots. Boots can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion or outfit. The great thing about them is that there are many styles available at every price point to find something that works for you!

Moving around in them is another thing. You might want to try some women’s shoes, which are made of softer materials that conform better to your feet and fit better when you walk.

The best advice for someone shopping for shoes would be to find a store that has an arch-support worker on staff who can walk with you and test your weight after you stand in various footwear for about 5 minutes – the fit should feel different than just trying it on in the aisle or standing up in front of a mirror.

Shoes with leather or suede uppers usually last longer but these shoe styles seldom offer much arch support so we suggest choosing one with a padded insert instead and maybe even inserts insole boots if your ankles swell when walking distances.

Check out reviews of different styles and models on various websites

Researching different models of shoes is a good idea. You might find that a shoe that has a great reception online, but you prefer the style and feel of another model. If you’re not sure, then go ahead and purchase both styles to see which feels better on your foot. There are plenty of helpful reviews out there from people who have tested out various styles.

When looking for a new shoe, find the appropriate staff member and ask which shoe would be best suited for your lifestyle. They will help you avoid wasting time on shoes you’re not going to use.

Many people agonize over choosing the right workout shoes, then end up finding they don’t like them but can’t return them because of where they were purchased or how long ago.

The following things need to be considered: climate; temperature; terrain; skill level; frequency and form of exercise; weight and height (note how often heavier individuals report needing wider widths); degenerative conditions like flat feet or Achilles tendonitis (to treat these conditions, footwear with more room in front of the toes is recommended).


Get the best fit by measuring your feet and comparing to a sizing chart. Blundstone boots run small in size, so order a 1/2 size larger than you normally wear if you want room for socks or heavy-weight woolen tights.

Ensure that there is at least one finger width of space around your toes when trying on the boot shafts. If they are too tight, go up another shoe size for more toe wiggle room!

Finally, make sure to try them out with regular weight socks before committing; some people find heavier footgear difficult to get used to because it changes how their heels strike the ground and affects proprioception (i.e., sense of balance).


Do you size up or down for Blundstones?

Many people size down for Blundstones. It’s not uncommon to wear an 8 in classic Blundstone style and a 7 or 6 in more narrow styles. However, the best way to find the right fit is to visit an Oroton store with your feet, give them a stamp of approval on various soles, measure the length of your foot on different styles until you spot one that feels good at first glance. Measurements are helpful for this process but not necessary since shoes are generally designed with some room for comfort.

If you wear a true US size, I’d recommend sizing up. Blundstones are an Australian shoe line, which means they run smaller than most American shoes. For example, the equivalent of my size is 10 in Blundstones and 11 in most other brands.

The one exception might be if you have really narrow feet. In that case, stay with your normal American shoe size and it should work out well (again because Blundstone runs small and has extra room to make up for the narrowness).

How do you know your blundstone size?

Blundstones are one of the most common shoes to buy online. They’re specially designed for “all day” comfort, and to prevent heel slipping. In other words, it’s a good bet!

How do I know my perfect boot size?

What are your feet shaped like?

  1. If you have narrow feet, size up.
  2. Wide foot, size down to avoid toes being squished and discomfort because the boots will slide off of your heel.
  3. Longer leg length requires wider boot shaft for more space to allow room for knee movement–size up or buy over-the-knee boots instead of knee-high styles if wearing with leggings underneath could be a problem at all based on body shape
    4 If you have high arches, go ahead and size up one because after hours of wears heels can slip out from underfoot or widen enough that extra shoe retightening becomes problematic.​

Are Blundstones supposed to be tight at first?

The fit should be comfortable and supportive if they’re not, then it’s likely that you bought shoes which are too small for your feet. It takes a little bit of time and wearing in for Blundstones to break in and achieve their correct shape, but after this process has happened, the shoes tend to maintain the correct shape perfectly under normal wear conditions.

Often, tightness is due to rubbing or an incorrect foot type (e.g., toe drag).
If tightness persists despite proper care & use, you may need upsize your Blundstones™ by half a size or more – please see our helpful sizing guide below for guidance on how to measure your feet correctly.

Do Blundstones hurt at first?

Yes, they hurt initially because of how stiff the leather is. But with time and regular wear, your foot bed will mold to the shoe’s shape.
Blundstones are built very differently from most other shoes on the market today. Their sole leather is thicker than any other shoe before it, which means that their shoes are less likely to break down prematurely.

This also makes them less flexible in terms of comfort at first because they fit nearer to the foot like a glove rather than almost sliding off like other shoes do when new. So don’t get discouraged if you get blisters or experience discomfort at first—they’ll break in soon enough!

What size is 4.5 in Blundstones?

It’s hard to say. Feet are so individual depending on your weight, shoe size, etc. As a general rule however, I would say 3-4 sizes up from your dress or shoe size. Just for example– let’s say you wear an 8 in shoes at 6’0″. I’d go with either 12 (1 pr) or 13 (2 pr).

Are blundstone half sizes just wider?


It’s not wider, but it’s shorter in height. The Blundstone sizing is for length – they are designed to fit closer to the ankle. You should be able to tell if there is a size differential by taking two pairs of shoes, one regular length and the other half-length, and looking at them together.

How long does it take for Blundstones to stretch?

A long time.
Blundstone shoes are designed with additional space for this eventual flattening, so it really depends on the individual person.

I know that I personally got my boots in 2010 and they’re still fitting comfortably after everyday use, with no stretching yet! However, most people do find that their Blunnies end up feeling like a good old friend (aka literally perfect) after wearing them for at least six months or so. There are also great tricks out there – installing dry cotton wool or fabric inside the shoe to aid the stretching process is one of them!
