Best Shoes, Boots and Clogs to Wear for Gardening-Men's and Women's!!

October 18, 2018

If you are like me, you love to garden. And with gardening comes dirt, water, mud and even snow and ice. Losing a shoe or sandal in the mud or having to garden in wet socks is not much fun. I should know!! So, today I am going to go over and review the best shoes, boots and clogs to wear for gardening. Both men's and women's!!! Just sit back and check out what I consider the top choices on the market today. You may find some cheaper shoes, boots or clogs out there, but remember, you get what you pay for.

Best Shoes, Boots and Clogs To Wear for Gardening-What to Look For

Since I started gardening many years ago, gardening shoes have come a long way. Back in the day, you basically just wore the oldest shoes you can find. Usually they were old tennis shoes that you haven't worn in years or were wearing to mow the lawn. They were not waterproof. Mud stuck to the bottom like glue. And they looked terrible. If you wanted something waterproof, you had to wear old boots that were uncomfortable and hot!! Over time, manufacturers realized this and started making shoes, boots and now even clogs that work much better for gardening. If you are looking to purchase a new pair of gardening shoes, boots or clogs, there are some things that you should look for when purchasing. Here are some of the important features that you should look for before you buy a pair:

  • Size-make sure that if you are buying online, that you read customer reviews to see if the pair that you are interested in runs big or small. You don't want to get blisters from your shoes if they are too small and you don't want them falling off in the mud if they are too big!!
  • Cost-there are plenty of shoes, boots or clogs on the market today that you don't need to break the bank when you purchase a pair. Some of the good gardening boots may run around $150, but if you are looking for shoes or clogs, you can usually keep the cost under 0 or even under $50.
  • Waterproof-unless you garden in a dry area, you really need to make sure that you get a pair of shoes, clogs or boots that are waterproof. Weather doesn't always cooperate with our gardening schedules. Especially in the spring when the ground is wet and muddy for weeks!! Get a pair that is waterproof and you don't have to really worry about the weather.
  • Durable-if you are into gardening for the long haul, you want to make sure that you purchase a pair of gardening shoes, boots or clogs that are going to last. You don't want to have to purchase a new pair each year. (Unless you want to!!) I am only going to review the best durable shoes, boots and clogs on the market today.
  • Style/Design/Looks-all of these features seem to fall into the same category. Like I said, they have come along way with gardening shoes, boots and clogs. The styles and designs really look great. Not that I care about what my neighbors think, but I do like to wear gardening boots that are in style and look nice. Ladies, they are really making your gardening shoes, boots and clogs look nice. You can wear them to the store or to run errands if you want!!!
  • Good company-make sure that you are getting a decent brand name pair of gardening shoes, boots or clogs. They usually have a good customer service department if you have any issues. They also tend to make the best pairs on the market today.
  • Comfort/Lightweight-if you are going to do hours of gardening, you want to make sure that the gardening shoes, boots or clogs are comfortable and lightweight. Most companies will put terry cloth on the insoles nowadays to make them nice and comfortable. But make sure that you check. Also, make sure that the shoes, boots or clogs are lightweight. This doesn't make you legs so tired so you can garden longer!!!
