My Favorite Gardening Shoes

In answer to Carol's Gardening Shoe Challenge, I am posting a picture of my favorite gardening shoes. Here they are--and the best part is, I got to wear them outside today! In March!


They're not quite in shape yet--once they make their regular season debut, you'll see a bit of copper showing at the tips. Between gardening and my sand volleyball leagues, they will look much different come July. :)

Hey, they look transparent? Oh, wait, you garden barefoot? I don't know how you do it! You are tougher than me!

funny. you CLEARLY don't walk across a horse pasture while you garden.

Of course, neither will I anymore. Maybe I'll try your method.

I wear garden shoes like yours sometimes too, Kim. They're very easy to clean, aren't they? Just hose them off and go! ;-)

You're tougher, and braver, than me. The most I'll do barefoot is step onto the front porch to deadhead or water the containers :-)

Love the shoes! I have a similar pair.

Carol, I don't know about tougher... probably just more stubborn. I hate wearing shoes in general!

Clerk, nope, no manure in my backyard. Not even the dog variety. Hot cement driveway does pose a hazard, however, as do bees buzzing around on low-growing plants like thyme. I'm not always good about avoiding the plants.

Kylee that is a definite advantage! *grin*

Colleen, I might change my mind if I lived in the tough urban jungle of Detroit... *wink*

YAY, earth girl! I knew I couldn't be the only one!!!! :)

Y'all don't garden with Fahr Ants, apparently!

Oh yeah, those went on sale around the time that all of us were born. Got 'em for nothing! My hubby grimaces when I garden in those (only on warm soil).

brr...
But I sometimes garden in those in the summer when it's warmer. Definately wear them to pick strawberries!
