Time to dust off the garden tools and think spring.
This should include being prepared for the first nice spring day by knowing which shoes, boots or clogs you will slip on to greet the new year of gardening. Some folks may say they prefer an old pair of sneakers, flip flops or just plain old barefoot.
That’s fine, but wearing a pair of gardening shoes will extend your gardening time and pleasure so more can be accomplished and enjoyed.
I’d dare say that most people that experience a good pair of footwear in the garden will be hard pressed to venture out there again in bare feet. Not to mention the pedicure problems that can be avoided as well as health and safety issues for your feet.
Warm feet that are dry and safe make it easier to stay out there long enough to accomplish the task at hand. So whether you prefer clogs, boots or shoes, there are so many to choose from at Garden Shoes Online.
Do your feet and back a favour !
Be ready for Spring with MuckBoot Scrub Boots!
If you want to wear something that is a bit more durable on mucky ground than a shoe, especially when the terrain is deeper dirt or mud, the Muck Scrub Boot from Garden Shoes Online should be your first consideration.
This is a boot designed for messy chores and working outdoors. Hosing them off cleans them in a snap. They are waterproof, comfortable and also come in fun colors as well as the traditional green. It has a stretch-fit binding at the top that snugs your calf to keeps warmth in and breathable Airmesh lining keeps your foot dry(from perspiration).
The multi ribbed tread gives you good traction and the seamless, easy to clean rubber overlay makes it waterproof. Even the top flex foam bootie is waterproof as well as snag resistant. It has a kick rim for hands free removal and natural rubber reinforcement in the toe, heel, achilles, and shank areas that offer extra protection when working with tools. If you want a boot that goes on and off easily and keeps your feet dry and comfortable, the Muck Scrub Boot is a great choice.
Garden Shoe ReviewGarden Shoe ReviewOne of the perks of my job is getting to review our products and let you know what I think after using them in my own garden. Here are my garden shoes from Garden Shoes Online- what I like and dislike about them. I hope it helps if you are trying to decide what kind of shoes to buy for gardening or just kicking around. You can click on any of the photos and it will take you to the Garden Shoes Online listing for technical information about the shoes.
Muck Daily Garden Shoe
The shoe I wear the most while gardening is the Muck Daily Garden Shoe. They are comfy and waterproof. They don’t make my feet hot as you would imagine a waterproof shoe would. I really like the way the top is a bit tighter and stretchy – It keeps the dirt out and makes them very comfortable. They also kick off and slip on very easily which makes it easy to run in the house if need be without tracking in the dirt.These hose off quickly as well which makes cleaning up a snap. They come in men’s and women’s sizes.
Muck Daily Clogs
These are a great slip on for the garden or to run out on an errand. I don’t like them for regular everyday gardening as much as the shoes because I don’t like dirt getting on my feet. If I am just putting around the yard they work because they are waterproof. I just don’t like to do serious “get in the dirt” gardening in these. These also come in mens and women’s sizes.
Sloggers Women’s Garden shoes
These I wear around town more than in my garden. They are like wearing a rain boot, but they are a shoe. They are comfortable to walk in and most of all they are waterproof as well as adorable. I get so many compliments when I wear them. In the garden they are fine, but I am spoiled by the snug ankles on my other garden shoes.
Bogs Women’s Matties
I also have a pair of Bogs Women’s Mattie gardening shoes. I will admit that I was first attracted to their wonderful colors and patterns but these fit well and cover the ankle with a stretchy cuff that keeps debri and dirt out. They feel like a sneaker but they are almost a boot without being clunky like a boot can often be.These are my choice when it’s deep dirt or mud I will be standing in. They aren’t as easy as the Muck daily garden shoe to slip on and off which is a downfall for me but if the dirt is deep I choose this shoe anyway.
Garden Grips clogs
Again, I am not fond of clogs in the garden but these clogs have a higher sole that keeps you out of the dirt. I wear these if I know I am going in the wet grass. They have great traction.
Another perk is the steel shank in the arch for shoveling so you don’t hurt your foot. I really like that in a gardening shoe and it’s the only one I own that has it. Don’t think this means they aren’t flexible, they are.
These are so rugged and comfortable, I ended up using them as an everyday shoe in the fall, winter and spring. I can stand all day in them ,they support my high arches. I actually use these more as an every day shoe than a gardening shoe.If I didn’t own the Muck Daily Garden Shoes I would wear these shoes.
Slogger’s Uni Garden Sandals/Clogs
These are great everyday shoes. These are really a lot like clogs with a wide strap that keeps your foot in and makes it easier to walk. I wear them all the time. They have a removable insole which makes them so much more comfortable than most of the sandals like these. They are terrific for a hot day in the garden or when you know you will be using your hose. They rinse right off and are very comfortable. These are easy to slip o, so I often do, I water and dead head as well as give the dog a bath or wash the car in these. I don’t use them for dirt gardening. Again, dirt and toes aren’t my fave.You can also get these for men and women.
I hope this helps if you are looking for shoes to wear in the garden or just comfortable shoes that can also be worn everyday. If you are like me, it’s nice to have shoes that are ready when you wander into your yard for that unplanned inspection of what is growing or not.
