One 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
