Blundstone Release the #243 – A Boot for the Master and the Apprentice
Blundstone’s commitment to providing new designs that cater to all crew members has arrived with the launch of the #243 ‘crew boot’. Whether you’re a builder, construction worker, tradie, or work in a warehouse, the Blundstone #243, is the perfect low-cut boot for the team to step into.
The launch of the #243 coincides perfectly in the lead-up to the back-to-work period, making it a great option for businesses looking to kit out their crew in durable, comfortable and safe work boots for the new year.
Victorian construction company Evolv Homes was among the first to kit out their crew in this new style, with an overwhelmingly positive reception from the guys on site: “The new wheat boots fit like a glove, built for the site all day everyday” commented Gav, while David was effusive with praise:” The new wheat boots make long days on-site on the feet a whole lot easier. Comfortable, durable and sturdy”
Made in Blundstone’s signature water-resistant wheat nubuck upper – a firm favourite in the #992 – the #243 is a 135mm high safety boot with a padded collar and tongue and plenty of comfort due to Blundstone’s exclusive SPS Max comfort system, making it the perfect boot for those on their feet all day.
“Our new #243 is a boot that every member of the crew, from the master to the apprentice, will love. This wheat coloured, water-resistant, low-cut style is packed full of all our mod-cons, with the added bonus of a lightweight TPU outsole. Perfectly timed for the Back to Work period, and available at a great price point, the #243 ticks all the boxes for every member of the team,” says Adrian Blandford, Global Work & Safety Range Manager.
