Hobart, Tasmania (PRWEB) May 09, 2013
The classic Blundstone dress boot has been chosen by the Australian Winter Olympic Team for Sochi 2014 as the shoe for their formal uniforms.
Footwear chosen for the Team must not only look good and match the team’s uniform, but, importantly, must be immediately comfortable when first worn.
These leather boots were trialled by staff at the Australian Olympic Committee who commented that they were the most comfortable boots they’d ever worn.
Blundstone dress boots feature Blundstone’s innovative comfort technology, utilising the revolutionary PORON® XRD® material in the soles, absorbing up to 90% of the impact from every step.
CEO of Blundstone, Mr Steve Gunn said, “We’re proud that we are able to supply the team’s official uniform boots.”
“The Blundstone dress boot is one of our best selling boots, popular not only in Australia, but in many countries around the world, including Canada, Italy and Sweden.”
“These boots have been designed using traditional methods to achieve the custom Blundstone fit. They feature quality cow hide leathers and direct injected thermo-polyurethane soles”, Mr Gunn said.
Blundstone is a 100% Australian owned company based in Hobart, Tasmania.
