Blundstone At Sundance And ORWM

I got this press release, and feel like my favorite Australian footwear company is taking over Utah. We’ll get to see the latest from Blundstone when we attend the Outdoor Retailer Winter Market show this week in Salt Lake City. But Blundstone is also sponsoring the Sundance Film Festival in Park City at the same time. It’s a safe bet that these Aussie boots will get plenty of coverage in the coming days. Even though I lived in Australia for 3 years, I never owned a pair. Perhaps it’s time to change that.
