Blondo Prestly Boot Review: Foot-Friendly and Waterproof


What to wear when the forecast is calling for more gray, rain, cold, and you’re sick of wearing your snow boots? How about this cute boot by Blondo– a Canadian brand known for their waterproof but yet stylish footwear. I’ve wanted to try the Blondo brand for a while now, but this boot in particular caught my eye because of its gray on gray monochrome look that’s so in right now. I thought it would go with everything that I own from jeans to pants to skirts.

The Blondo Prestley is made of lovely leather that’s very soft to the touch. The back is made of a textile that matches the front to keep the monochrome look, but it has some stretch to it! This is beneficial if you have a larger calf and you hate boots that constrict the lower part of your leg.

The toe area is definitely rounded. If you are into the pointy toe boot look, these are not for you. But if you have compromised joints, or you have bunions or hammer toes, you’ll probably find these pretty comfortable. I sure do, and I have all of that and more due to rheumatoid arthritis.


I find that the heel area is also a bit generous. That’s why I wear my socks with these just to get a more secure fit. The Blondo Prestly has a cushioned footed but it’s not removable. Arch support is minimal to moderate. I would say on a scale of one to 10, with one being like a Steve Madden ballet flat and 10 being Birkenstock, these are about a five.

For those of you with hallux rigidus or hallux limitus, you should know that the forefoot sits on a 3/4″ platform of TPR (thermoplastic rubber)–it’s sturdy and thick, not bending too much.

I find that the Blondo Prestly runs pretty true to size, if not just a little bit big. I tend to wear a size 10 medium and that’s what I ordered in these. I don’t plan on returning them for anything smaller because I want to wear them with socks.

Find the Blondo Prestly in 5 colors, sizes 6-11 for $149 from Zappos, Amazon, and Nordstrom.
