Blundstone and Finisterre embrace the elements with fully certified vegan boots

Written by

A relationship forged across the seas, between two brands with a shared history of making fit-for-purpose clothing and footwear.

Cornish B Corp adventure brand Finisterre have partnered with iconic Tasmanian footwear manufacturer Blundstone on the design of limited-edition co-branded vegan boots.

The limited-edition footwear set to launch this October.

Established in 1870 and beloved by people living and working in wild and rugged landscapes, Blundstone boots have become infamous for transcending all seasons and terrain, taking wearers to the edge of the world in unfailing comfort and durability. Classically Blundstone in style but with a vegan twist, the new boots share all the qualities people have come to love, made with tough materials that are kind on the environment.

Working together between Finisterre’s clifftop workshop in St. Agnes and Blundstone’s base in the heart of Tasmania, Blundstone were able to call on knowledge gained from Finisterre’s pioneering past footwear collaborations with Vans, Palladium and Vivobarefoot.

From the pull loop, to the upper, the footbed to the sole, Blundstone has ensured that every material used is fully vegan verified, a critical outcome for Finisterre whose legacy is founded on challenging fabric use and construction.

Lightweight and breathable, product features include a comfort-focused removeable footbed, durable outsole and water resistant microfibre upper with superior abrasion-proof qualities. Ready to roam over rock, road, sand and into the bush, to signal the collaboration, bespoke colours and a Finisterre logo are debossed onto each heel.

“We’ve dreamt of working with Blundstone for years. The durability is second to none and they look great on everyone, so it’s no wonder the majority of our community own a pair. For us we needed a boot that passed the same quality and toughness test but maintained our pioneering approach of innovation and seeking alternates to what has gone before.  Something just as durable, breathable, water-repellent and with no animal derived ingredients and all packaged into that famous boot silhouette? Consider it done.” – Lead Menswear Designer, Todd.

Adapted to the needs of our ever-changing environment and ready to stand the test of time, the Blundstone x Finisterre Originals Vegan arrive this November, available exclusively online via www.finisterre.com. The unisex style will retail for £160 in two classic colours – Black/Olive & Brown/Black.
