10 Easy Pieces: Garden Clogs and Ankle Boots

Erin Boyle September 03, 2014

Given the choice, I’d go barefoot. It doesn’t matter if it’s sand between my toes or fresh garden mud, I like the feeling of my bare feet planted directly on the earth. When I was younger, my sisters and I had contests to see whose feet were toughest; the test was walking barefoot across our gravel driveway without wincing.

Unfortunately rigorous gardening duties require shoes. Here are a few of my favorite ways to compromise, with clogs and low boots:

This minty Green Rue Slip-On is $78 from Bogs Footwear.

The Tretorn Skerry offers more in the way of protection for delicate ankles; $80 from Tretorn.

This gardening clog features a slightly more sturdy tread, making it perfect for gardening on a slope. The Aigle Limpo Gardening Shoe is €29 from Aigle.

Jolly Garden Clogs are a true gardening classic. They’re $47.95 from Gardener’s Supply.

A warm weather counterpart to the iconic bean boot, these Rubber Mocs from L.L. Bean are $79.

 

Above: From Hunter, the Short Original Boot is $138 from Zappo’s.

Above: A pair of Classic Birki by Birkenstock is $54.95.

 

Above: Green Garden Clogs have slip-resistant soles; $29.95 from Green Products.

Above: Farmer friends swear by the Mud Muck Garden Shoes, on sale for $64.95 from the Muck Boot Co.

 

Sloggers Classic Garden Clogs are a nice low profile option. The garden boots are available starting at $28.65.
