At Remodelista, there is a heated debate over the best rubber gardening boots.
Julie and Francesca favor French Rubber Garden Boots, while Alexa covets the Japanese Rubber Jika-Tabi Gardening Boots. After being a devotee of Australian Blundstone boots for years (my trusty pair finally sprung a leak), I have decided that the Hunter Brixen Boot could be the best boot for the garden.
Let us know your favorite tried and true rubber garden boots.
