Blundstones are popular boots in Canada, but they aren't exactly cheap.
Whether you're dealing with rain on the West Coast or snow and slush in parts of Ontario and Alberta, the waterproof and durable boots are a staple for many people.
If you've been debating getting yourself a pair, but aren't sure due to the price tag, you're not alone.
Regardless of whether the boots are worth the money, with the cost of everything going up nowadays, it's nice to save some cash where you can.
We rounded up eight dupes that look just as good as Blundstones and cost significantly less.
