Blundstone is thinking on its feet, introduces the #989
Blundstone has combined its best-selling elastic side safety boot with its popular wheat nubuck leather for the #989 boot, packed with durability, comfort and style.
The #989’s pedigree is heavy industrial with a rubber sole that’s heat resistant to 300°C, a steel cap toe, TPU bump cap and the extra protection of electrical hazard resistance.
“Our new #989 is a testament to our commitment of providing boots fit for every purpose. Elastic sided boots are what we are famous for, and we know that the #989 will be a favourite of workers who are on the move,” Blundstone global work and safety range manager Adrian Blandford says.
“This boot is built for jumping in and out of machinery, putting the pedal to the metal and pull on kick off convenience. An elastic side boot offers great ankle articulation, and combined with our much-loved wheat nubuck leather, the #989 adds a new dimension to our range.”
It also comes with a low-density shock absorbing PU midsole with an anti-bacterial agent as well as SPS Max – XRD Technology in the heel and forepart strike zones for increased impact protection.
There’s also a removable comfort arch footbed with XRD Extreme Impact Protection for greater impact absorption and user comfort.
