Walk into any room and strike up a conversation about the music. Inevitably, The Beatles will enter the conversation at some point. With the bands roots going back to 1960, they are still revered as being a classic in the ever changing music landscape. Few name brands and products share the 'classic' moniker such as The Beatles.

The Blundstone 510 boot fits the criteria as a 'classic' and is a staple in their product line. Most noticable about the 510 is that it doesn't have laces.

Instead, the boots slip on comfortable with pull tabs located at the front and rear of the 510's scree collar. The boot's upper consists of leather along with elastic on its sides for flexibility. The polyurethane-injected outersole has medium-set lugs to provide traction over basic and rougher surfaces.

The Blundstone 510's stylish look works great for casual settings and going out on the town. They work great with a pair of jeans or shorts. The boots also are very functional for lighter hiking and even for the workplace. The lugs are not deep set, so they are not recommended for anything more than shorter day hikes. The leather upper is weatherproof and can stand up to most stream crossings. Just like any waterproof boot, water will eventually find its way to its seams and will leak through eventually.

Blundstone LogoThe Blundstone 510 is ideal for anyone that is looking for a versatile boot good for short hikes and for casual and work environments. Blundstone lists the 510 at $145 and are available in Black. The Blundstone 500 is the sister to the 510 and is available in Stout Brown.
