    Default Blundstone boots $120 at Sears?

    I think this is the same model Bit of Britain sells for $149 (but Sears only carries them in brown).

    Anyone who knows Blundstone's better give info?

    If you go to the Sears site: http://www.6pm.com/product/7902316/c...3-001b2166becc

    You can see them in larger views. They are blundstones (stamp on side of heel) but they are a little bit different than the Bit of Britain. There is more stiching on the Sears pair -check out the heel area and near the arch.

    The classic Blundstones are the 500 model, and they are marked with a big 500 on the pull tabs. The Cuthbertson model on BofB is slightly different, not as thick through the instep so as to fit the stirrup better, and it tends to be a little more expensive than the 500. I've owned both and they were both fine for me for riding.

    If you know your size --- look on Ebay. I've found great deals on Blundstones there.

    or save your money for another brand. Blundstones are no longer made in Australia. I think I heard they are now made in China or Thailand.
